Lush palm trees create an oasis of beauty for this impressive Mediterranean-inspired estate on a deep-draft waterway just off the Intracoastal in the heart of Fort Lauderdale’s gracious Coral Ridge community. Giving its classic composition a striking, sculptural quality, the stately five-bedroom residence designed by Gregory A. Jones Architecture was custom built in 2006 with attention to detail and craftsmanship.
Greeted at the double-door entry, guests are ushered into the dramatic foyer showcasing a majestic turret-style staircase that soars to a backlit stained-glass domed ceiling and serves as a signature design element of the open layout designed with entertaining in mind. Across from the two-story living room’s palatial fireplace, the professional-style sit-down wet bar also serves the family room, with both window-walled rooms flowing to the elegant resort-style outdoor entertainment space on a garden terrace extending to the water’s edge. The Bose surround-sound system gives a true cinematic experience in the sumptuous theater room. Private baths serve all of the bedrooms including the grand master suite designed as a haven of luxury featuring a waterfront balcony, a relaxing fire-lit sitting area, two wardrobe rooms, and a lavish salon-like bath.
Large enough for the yachter’s 80±-foot vessel or multiple craft, the dock is outfitted with two power stations and gives direct access from this wide, deep waterway to the open ocean without fixed bridges. With a host of special features, this exceptional waterfront estate offers everything desired for luxurious indoor/outdoor living in the desirable Coral Ridge community.
