Standing out among the truly extraordinary estates of the Las Olas Isles, this Mediterranean-inspired compound sprawls across two and a-half palm-studded lots fronting 270 +/- feet on Sunset Lake's expansive waters from a stretch of the finger isle that also gives it a view of the Oriente Canal on the other side. Replete with luxuries inside and outdoors, including many upgrades, the six-bedroom residence captures water views from all main rooms and is equally impressive as seen from the Sunset Lake waterfront as it is from the front entrance, set behind three sets of stately gates between lantern-lit stanchions.
Brought into the grand rotunda foyer, open to the soaring living room and the family room, guests can be served from the professional-style wet bar in the beautifully flowing open layout which functions perfectly for entertaining while also providing a comfortable everyday living environment. Glass doors flow out to the dining loggia and terrace for lounging by the stunning saltwater pool shaped in the form of a manta ray - all taking in the magnificent Sunset Lake view - while tennis enthusiasts can play a game on the clay court by the lush gardens.
Other notable highlights of the residence include the 3D-capability theater room, Crestron automation, wine cellar, lavish multi-room master suite, and car collector's five-bay garage. The property's two docks allow the yachter ample room for luxury vessels and other watercraft in this prime location on the wide waters of Sunset Lake, giving way to the Intracoastal Waterway. While close to the beach and Las Olas Boulevard, this majestic waterfront compound has everything desired right in its own private realm designed to give the experience of a world-class resort paradise.
Isle of Palms Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The prestigious Las Olas Isles waterfront community centers on famous Las Olas Boulevard, lined with fine boutiques and restaurants as it stretches toward the ocean beach right across the bridge.
Sprawling across 270 +/- feet of east-facing shoreline on Sunset Lake, and also looking west to the Oriente Canal, this majestic two-and-a-half-lot gated compound is equipped with two large yacht docks, one with a 25,000 +/- pound boat lift. Tropically landscaped for beauty and privacy, this Mediterranean-inspired estate features a resort-inspired outdoor entertainment space with a spectacular pool and spa, fire-pit, and distinctive night lighting. For alfresco dining, the main loggia is served by a summer kitchen/bar with Viking grill. Lush foliage also surrounds the fenced tennis court by a viewing terrace and garden walkways.
Water views backdrop all main rooms in the grand total of 11,200 +/- square feet offering six bedrooms, six full and three half baths, walk-in closets, an elevator, a generator, Crestron smart-house automation, and a five-bay garage. Fine finishes include marble and hardwood floors, architectural ceiling treatments, and impact-rated windows and exterior doors.
First Floor: Making a dramatic first impression, the 30 +/- foot-high rotunda foyer is wrapped with a sweeping staircase, beyond which are the powder room and temperature-controlled wine cellar. Next to the professional-style wet bar, centrally placed to serve the main entertaining spaces, the foyer opens into the soaring double-height living room where a full-height window wall looks over the pool terrace to Sunset Lake. A palatial double-sided cast stone fireplace gives this room another stunning focal point. On either side of the wet bar, columns frame entryways into the warmly elegant dining room and the family room, combined with the gourmet kitchen in a large open space wrapped with window walls that connect to the poolside loggia and also overlook the lush side lawn from the breakfast bay. Fitted with furniture-grade cabinets and marble counters, the kitchen offers the chef a six-burner Wolf gas range, wall oven, convection/microwave oven, warming drawer, dual Sub-Zero refrigerators/freezers, dual Bosch dishwashers, and a butler's pantry. The adjacent powder room also serves the sumptuous octagonal theater room outfitted with high-tech Kaleidescape systems, stadium-style seating, and a large-format screen. The versatile conference/play room has a turret alcove, custom built-ins, and its own onyx powder room. Across the foyer are two bedroom suites. Opening by the pool and sharing the living room's fireplace, one suite has been converted into a handsomely paneled office. The other suite includes a kitchenette and outside entry, and would be perfect for staff/captain's quarters.
Second Floor: Opening to a large balcony where the Sunset Lake view stretches far and wide, the lavish master suite enjoys a sitting room with wet bar, a boutique-style wardrobe room, and a salon-like, onyx-and-marble double bath featuring a jetted tub, shower, two vanities, and two private water closets. Another bedroom suite currently serves as the master suite's exercise studio. Across the bridge gallery, two luxurious bedroom suites open to waterside balconies.
