277 Tropic Dr
Lauderdale By The Sea, Florida 33308

A modern take on classic style, this beautiful deepwater estate, just two lots from the Intracoastal, is the perfect place to enjoy a gracious, relaxed yachting and beach lifestyle.

 

A charming seaside community adjacent to Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea provides the setting for this Modern Mediterranean estate fronting 90+/- feet on a deep-draft waterway, just two properties from the point, giving a view that extends to the Intracoastal Waterway.  A clean-lined take on classic style, this well-maintained five-bedroom residence makes a striking impression at the sweeping motor court arrival.

 

Once inside, the airy open living areas soar two stories high, adding to the comfortable sense of spaciousness.  The light sand tones of the neutral color scheme play up the coastal feel, and all of the bright windows and exterior doors are fitted with impact-resistant glass.  Seen through the family room's towering window wall, the waterfront's recently redone outdoor entertainment space invites relaxing and dining on the elevated terrace that surrounds the sleek saltwater pool.  Thoughtfully laid out on both levels, the bedrooms feature a privately placed master suite that looks out above the pool and waterway.  For the yachter, the property is complete with dockage for a 70+/- foot vessel in this prime spot, just in from the Intracoastal Waterway, with no fixed bridges obstructing the ocean access from this well-located property, which is also only about half a mile from the beach.  In the gracious, relaxed atmosphere of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, having close proximity to the metropolitan attractions of Fort Lauderdale, this beautiful deepwater estate offers the best of both worlds.

 

Location

Tropic Drive, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida.  Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is a true Gold Coast gem, nestled on the scenic barrier island between the sparkling blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, just east of Fort Lauderdale.  Through careful planning, this charming seaside community maintains its unspoiled surroundings in a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of the Florida Keys.  Quaint Pelican Square serves as its centerpiece in a lovely village setting, next to the oceanfront observation/fishing pier, providing a wonderful array of boutiques, specialty shops, and dining options ranging from casual bistros to elegant gourmet restaurants.  Caressed by the gentle trade winds, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is blessed with an abundance of exquisite sun-drenched sandy beaches.  Excellent snorkeling and scuba diving are enjoyed with a living coral reef just 100+/- yards offshore, teeming with colorful fish and other marine life.

 

Property

Fronting 90+/- feet of deep-draft shoreline, outfitted with full-service yacht dockage, this Modern Mediterranean estate expands the water view to the Intracoastal, just two lots away.  On tropically landscaped grounds, the residence opens to a waterside marble patio around the heated saltwater pool, all completely redone in 2014.  Accessed from the kitchen, and served by a commercial-grade ice-maker, the poolside lanai is ideal for outdoor dining.

 

Residence

Clean lines, volume ceilings, neutral ceramic tile floors, and impact-rated glass carry through this comfortable, carefully maintained residence totaling 3,899+/- square feet with five bedrooms and four full baths.  The extra-deep two-bay garage has ample storage space ideal for boating equipment.

 

First Floor:  At the covered entry, double doors step into the two-story living room, brightened by a large arched window, combined in a dramatic open space with the two-story family room that looks out on the waterfront pool patio and leads to the lanai.  In an easy layout for entertaining, the dining room opens off the living room, while the gourmet kitchen's waterside breakfast area opens off the family room and has French doors to the lanai.  Designed with a bar counter and cooking island, the kitchen includes granite counters and KitchenAid appliances.  Two bedrooms on this level include one with an en-suite bath and another which is presently used as an office and is served by another full bath that doubles as the cabana bath.

 

Second Floor:  Off the balcony hall, overlooking the family room below, the privately placed master suite focuses on the waterfront through an airy Palladian-inspired window wall opening to a balcony where the view stretches to the Intracoastal Waterway.  Accompanied by a walk-in closet, the master bath is well appointed with a jetted tub, glassed shower, and two granite-topped vanities.  Placed away from the master quarters, two more bedrooms are served by a connecting bath.  The laundry/utility room completes this level.
