- For Sale
Looking south on the wide waters of a scenic Grand Canal in The Venice of America, this coastal-inspired estate is located in the Rio Vista Isles, a prestigious yachting neighborhood sought after for its close proximity to the Port Everglades Inlet, only about a mile away. Drawing on traditional design for its timeless sensibility, the four-bedroom residence was built in 2011 with high-quality craftsmanship and architectural detailing.
The shady front verandah of this picture-perfect estate makes an inviting entry to the fresh interiors in a calm palette grounded by tumbled marble floors. Equally beautiful, the more formal and casual living spaces flow easily from the two-story foyer. As the focus for day-to-day living, the family room and informal dining room combine with the chef’s kitchen in a bright open layout flowing through French doors to the pool patio, perfect for entertaining guests or just relaxing by the waterfront. Upstairs, the four bedroom suites feature the spacious and inviting master quarters which open to a waterfront balcony. Full-service dockage for the yachter’s 55±-foot vessel completes this immaculate estate home in Rio Vista Isles, well located near the private Lauderdale Yacht Club, famous Las Olas Boulevard, and the sun-drenched ocean sands.
Southeast 9th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Bordered by the New River and the Intracoastal Waterway, Rio Vista Isles is a sought-after yachting community of scenic finger isles on deep-draft tropical waterways close to the inlet. The choice location is also close to Las Olas Boulevard’s fine shopping and dining, downtown amenities, and the beach.
On 75± feet of deep-draft waterfront, this traditional coastal-inspired estate sits on manicured lawns with tropical landscaping highlighted by Canary Island date palms. Facing south to the water, French doors open the residence to the verandah and brick paver terrace by the pool with heated spillover spa. Garden plantings line the terrace by the full-service dock that can accommodate a 55±-foot yacht and has an additional floating dock.
Built in 2011, this refined classic is beautifully detailed in a total of 4,315± square feet with four bedrooms, five full baths, and a two-bay garage. Tumbled marble floors carry through both levels, with crown-molded 10±-foot ceilings on the first floor. Impact-glass is used in all windows and exterior doors.
First Floor: At the front verandah, sidelights line the French door entry to the two-story foyer leading into the living room brightened by tall windows. Across the foyer, pillars mark the arched entry to the dining room, served by a butler’s pantry that connects into the kitchen. Equipped for the gourmet chef, the kitchen has crisp white cabinetry, granite counters, an island/bar, and Thermador appliances including a professional-style six-burner gas range with double ovens, a stainless steel dishwasher, and panel-front refrigerator/freezer. Part of a large open-concept space, the kitchen is combined with the informal dining area and comfortable family room, all brightened by waterside windows and French doors that flow out to the pool area. Next to the family room is a full bath that doubles as the cabana bath. Opening its doors to the waterside verandah, the inviting office/library could potentially be converted into a fifth bedroom.
Second Floor: Atop the sweeping iron-balustraded staircase is a versatile loft-style sitting/media/play space that overlooks the foyer below. Set off by an airy tray ceiling, the beautiful master suite opens through French doors to a private terrace looking out over the waterway.
