Resting amongst lush tropical gardens and set behind two gated entries, the six-bedroom residence gives a fresh take on classic style in airy, openly flowing interiors that link with the outdoor living space in an ideal layout for entertaining. This custom-built estate looks south on 100+/- feet of waterfront offering up to 80 feet of yacht dockage complete with a boat lift. Outdoor gatherings with family and friends center on the waterfront terrace where a summer kitchen serves the wraparound loggia by the pool with its multiple sun shelf spaces and spouting fountains.
Renovated Mediterranean Masterpiece
This newly imagined Mediterranean-style estate is majestic and alluring, offering every advantage for luxury South Florida living. Partially renovated with some reconfigured rooms, the stately two-story, six bedroom residence in Harbor Beach includes two complete separate apartments, a wine room, a VIP suite, and unparallelled views. Plus, it has a private dock that accommodates a 75-foot yacht and two boathouses, making this the ultimate estate for the yachting enthusiast.
Regal Estate On the Port Everglades Inlet
This regal estate is situated in an exclusive enclave directly fronting the Port Everglades Inlet where the Intracoastal meets the ocean. Custom dark wood millwork, molding, paneling and cabinetry offer a rich contrast to the light-infused crystal chandeliers and the two-story stained glass window behind the wrought iron and wood staircase. Guests and residents enjoy unobstructed panoramic views of the water from the outdoor pool terrace or atop the romantic second-story balcony.
Expansive Estate in Coral Ridge
This impressive seven-bedroom residence is positioned on a tropical waterway with deep-water dockage in the prized Coral Ridge community. This Mediterranean-inspired beauty was custom-built in 2009 by Quality First Homes, a respected South Florida firm. We admire the elegant columns and lighter tones that contrast with the black ironwork and other dark features in the space. The master bathroom is a true spa-like retreat. Opening to a loggia overlooking the waterway, the master suite is a spacious private sanctuary featuring an inviting sitting area, a morning bar, two walk-in closets, and a marble-and-granite bath with a Roman-style jetted tub, a walk-through double shower, two vanities, and two separate water closets.
Elegant Property Built in 1939
Fronting 100 feet of a deep finger canal, this historic property is classic and elegant both inside and out. The residence was originally conceived by famed architect Russell Pancoast in 1939 and has since been renovated several times over. It maintains its original grandeur and iconic Bermuda Colonial style while remaining in pristine, top-of-the-line condition. With many rooms opening to a balcony, patio or porch, much of the living area focuses on exteriors. Guests and residents may lounge and dine within any of the multiple covered brick patios overlooking the waterway, or take a dip in the heated rectangular pool.
Country Club Mansion on the Golf Course
Modern-day luxuries merge with vintage charm in this breathtaking residence in Coral Ridge Country Club. This timeless six-bedroom residence captures one of the most stunning golf course views as the backdrop for gracious resort-style living. We are captivated by the stark contrast of the modern kitchen with the more traditional elements found elsewhere. Facing the golf course, the family room, casual dining room, and media/game areas of the great room flow easily from one space to another. The space naturally flows outdoors to the new travertine marble terrace where guests can gather around the pool and watch the sunset over the fairways in this romantic resort-like setting.
Stunning Marvel Along the Waterway
This gorgeous Mediterranean estate is nestled in an exclusive coastal community directly along the Rio Dorothy Margaret Waterway. With 100 feet of deep-water dockage, lush tropical landscaping, a waterway view, a heated saltwater pool and spa, a covered patio with a summer kitchen, this property promotes the quintessential Florida lifestyle. Guests are greeted in a commanding two-story foyer through double glass doors and welcomed into a dramatic 20-foot living room with a cast stone gas fireplace. Inlaid marble floors unify open living areas, while Brazilian cherry plank floors define five bedroom suites. Arches, tray ceilings and architectural details add interest to every room in this spectacular showplace.

Completed in 2017, this exquisite contemporary gem was created by a specialized, high-end design/build firm with an emphasis on effortless style and comfort. This five-bedroom residence is situated just steps from the sugar sands of the Atlantic in a quiet enclave between the ocean and Birch State Park. For easy entertaining, the sleek white chef’s kitchen is part of the seamless layout, where glass doors bring guests outdoors to the private fenced terrace by the sun-splashed pool. Upstairs, the glass-walled master suite is a restful oasis, opening to a wide balcony above the pool. The fabulous rooftop sky deck provides the perfect place to relax and take in the sweeping views that stretch to the ocean and surrounding coastal scenery.

Unique Contemporary Ranch
This contemporary ranch property looks and feels like a rare work of art. Designed for laidback living, this four-bedroom, five-bath, one-story estate is a study in light and space. Notable features include the vaulted beamed ceilings, the striking and bold tilework in several of the bathrooms, and the use of coral on the gas fireplace. Plus, the home is situated in a highly coveted community along a finger canal with direct ocean access. This unique residence marries pure California style with a refined South Florida lifestyle.
Modern Gem With Expansive Master Suite
This pristine modern estate rests alongside the New River Sound within the guard-gated Riviera Isles. The landscaped lot is surrounded by hedges and walls, providing the ultimate privacy in the pool area and within this appointed residence. Two expansive bedroom suites are located downstairs near the open foyer, and a luxuriously secluded master suite encompasses the entire second level. Two skylights cast natural light in the dramatic two-story living room with a glass and marble fireplace reaching up to the ceiling. The split-level living area still maintains a connected feel, as guests can linger by the kitchen and dining space, or gather around the built-in bar complete with a sink and refrigerator.
