Only steps from the ocean on a quiet cul-de-sac backed by Birch State Park, this stylishly renovated estate is the perfect Fort Lauderdale beach retreat for laid-back seaside living.
The quintessence of laid-back living by the sea, this stylishly renovated Mid-Century Modern beach bungalow is tucked away in a garden oasis just four properties from Ocean Boulevard, where the soft sun-drenched sands beckon at the end of the charming block-long cul-de-sac backed by Birch State Park's lush woodlands on the other side. Done in 2016, the total transformation of this comfortable single-level residence complements the clean-lined modern air with a host of special features and low-maintenance finishes including wood-look porcelain tile floors and impact-rated windows.
Inside, the fresh feel is underscored by soft sunlight filtered through the plantation shutters of tall windows that line the combined living and dining areas. Designed as part of the effortless open layout, the gourmet kitchen gives contrast to the richly finished cabinetry with delicately veined Taj Mahal quartzite counters including convenient bar/serving counters on two sides. In an inviting layout for entertaining, the family room leads to the breezy screened outdoor living/dining room overlooking the wonderful park-like oasis where a gazebo and rock waterfall feature add to the sense of serenity. A beautiful master suite is featured among the home's three bedrooms and three full baths. Also providing an outdoor shower perfect after a day spent swimming in the ocean or sun-bathing on the sands, this one-of-a-kind residence is the ideal Fort Lauderdale beach retreat.
Northeast 18th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This intimate cul-de-sac is situated in Las Olas by the Sea, a charming beachfront community of quiet cul-de-sacs nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and 180+/- acre Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a natural treasure in the middle of Fort Lauderdale which preserves Broward County's last tropical hardwood hammock. The scenic and peaceful setting is just a short drive from fine shopping and dining at The Galleria and on famous Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale's signature thoroughfare. Also within easy reach, downtown Fort Lauderdale's noted cultural attractions include the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the NSU Art Museum. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient 25+/- minute drive.
Just four properties from Ocean Boulevard, this recently renovated beach retreat is served by a semicircular drive on tropically landscaped grounds. Secluded by lush foliage, the park-like backyard oasis features a screen-enclosed open-air living room, complete with ceiling fans, alongside a tranquil rock waterfall feature, beyond which is the charming garden gazebo. LED lighting gives the outdoor gathering space a lovely night-time effect.
Designed for easy living and entertaining, the comfortable single-level floor-plan totals 2,244+/- square feet with three bedrooms, three full baths, and an attached garage.

Inside the covered entry, the living and dining rooms are combined in an open L-shaped space brightened by banks of windows fitted with airy plantation shutters. Separated by sit-down bar counters, the gourmet kitchen is outfitted with custom cabinetry -- the upper cabinets having frosted glass doors -- and counter finishes of Taj Mahal quartzite. From Whirlpool's Gold Series, the appliances include a five-burner ceramic glass cook-top plus a stainless steel oven, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer in addition to separate refrigerator drawers. Near the kitchen are the temperature-controlled wine cellar and separate laundry/utility room with front-loading appliances. Brightened by a long bank of windows, the family/media room opens to the screened outdoor living room and is served by a full bath with white Italian marble finishes and a glass-enclosed shower.
