805 Flamingo Drive Fort Lauderdale, Florida
- For Sale
Presiding over 165± feet of waterfront on the Rio Sunset Canal, just two properties from the point, this sprawling double-lot estate commands spellbinding views to the wide waters and winding coastline at the confluence of the New River and the Intracoastal Waterway, across from the Lauderdale Yacht Club, with the parade of yachts and boats cruising by. Giving a fresh take on coastal-inspired Florida design, the five-bedroom residence was just renovated in 2015 with features including the ultimate outdoor entertainment space that sweeps across the shoreline, centered on a fountained pool, with lounge spaces shaded by Tuuci parasols and a cabana-like awning, next to a flickering fireplace – all creating the feel of an exclusive resort retreat. The gorgeous view and South Florida sunset make every social gathering all the more memorable.
The picture of classic grace, this timeless residence is introduced by a walled and gated garden courtyard, canopied by stately oak trees and palms, centered on a cascading tiered fountain. Facing west to the water, banks of windows and French doors give magnificent waterfront views to almost every room in the light and airy interiors styled in understated elegance with a designer flair. A monumental fireplace and curving two-story window wall are signature elements of the soaring living room, and wood-paneled beamed ceilings give the new showpiece kitchen and open family room a coastal theme. The second kitchen is an added asset for catering large-scale events. An impressive estate in guard-gated Riviera Isles, the property is also a yachter’s dream with dockage for a 155±-foot mega vessel in this prime location with quick access to the inlet.
