Fronting Lake Santa Barbara on the Intracoastal Waterway, this extensively renovated estate is designed for relaxed living in the backdrop of spectacular wide-open water vistas.
Sparkling waters stretch open far and wide in the choice viewpoint of this Tropical Georgian-inspired estate fronting Lake Santa Barbara, an expansive basin on the Intracoastal Waterway, in the prestigious Pompano Beach neighborhood of Santa Barbara Shores. Designed by Pompano Beach architect Richard W. Dodge, AIA and extensively renovated in 2005, the five-bedroom residence takes advantage of the stunning vistas that sweep across the lake to the grand estates on the opposite shore and the beachfront resorts beyond.
On a quiet cul-de-sac, a semicircular drive arrives at the impressive portico introducing the classic center entrance hall with its stately curving staircase. In a comfortable layout for entertaining, the main living areas invite an open flow to outdoor living/dining spaces on the dramatic two-story verandah, the perfect place to admire the water view and watch the boating activity. Adding to the appeal of this prime waterfront estate is its convenient location, minutes from Atlantic Boulevard?s shopping and dining and the ocean beach.
Southeast 8th Street, Pompano Beach, Florida. A beautiful seaside community, Pompano Beach offers miles of sugar-sand beaches, acres of scenic parklands, and easy direct yachting access to the ocean through the Hillsboro Inlet, where the landmark Hillsboro Lighthouse stands sentry. Downtown Pompano Beach's Atlantic Boulevard hosts a wonderful array of shops, restaurants, and cafes. In the heart of South Florida's famous Gold Coast, Pompano Beach combines the best of both worlds - a quiet seaside setting close to the world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment of Fort Lauderdale, only about nine miles to the south.
Spectacularly set on 100+/- feet of Lake Santa Barbara frontage, this Tropical Georgian-inspired estate commands wide-open vistas on this expansive stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway. The double-entry drive sweeps around lush palm trees and sculpted hedges to arrive at the soaring front portico. On the east side of the residence, commanding views overlook the waterway from the dramatic two-story marble-floored verandah, giving way to spacious lawns with ample room for a pool.
