In a highly coveted community, on a finger canal with direct ocean access, this Contemporary Ranch marries pure California style with a South Florida lifestyle.
Designed for laidback living, this four-bedroom, five-bath, one-story contemporary estate with 2-bay garage is a study in light and space. Secured by a privacy fence, landscaped with a Montecito feel, it is open in back to unobstructed views of a well-lit private wood dock and waterway beyond the ample pool, patio and covered summer kitchen with built-in barbecue.
Everything about this 4155+/- square foot single-story residence, from its concrete construction and impact doors, to its vaulted beamed ceilings and airy open concept design, light hardwood and porcelain tile floors, freestanding coral gas fireplace, and gourmet island kitchen, inspires a sense of ease, that freeing feeling that you have found your own safe haven.
Situated on the north side of Barcelona Drive in a well-guarded community, this Seven Isles estate offers 80 feet of private dockage that can accommodate up to a 60-foot yacht, and unobstructed direct ocean access. All in close proximity to Fort Lauderdale's famous sugar sand beaches and the sought-after cafes, bistros, boutiques and galleries of celebrated Las Olas Boulevard.
Barcelona Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Set behind a guardhouse entry and served by its own patrol detail, the highly sought-after Seven Isles community is a yachter's paradise on the Intracoastal Waterway and deepwater Grand Canals of Fort Lauderdale, the world-famous yachting capital known as The Venice of America. To the south is Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale's signature thoroughfare, lined with fine boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and cafes as it stretches toward the Atlantic Ocean beachfront, right across the bridge. Downtown Fort Lauderdale is only minutes away, and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient 20+/- minute drive.
A lengthy paver drive, outlined by rock gardens with low shrubs, craggy trees and a sweeping lawn, leads to a red brick entry way and 2-bay garage. A rustic wood privacy fence extends out from either side of the residence around to the back of the property. There a Turkish marble pool deck and patio, with a covered summer kitchen, surround the ample pool, creating an ideal environment for easy entertaining. A low metal fence separates the marble patio from the well-lit wood dock without ever obscuring the waterway vista.
First Floor: Guests are welcomed through a double door entry into a porcelain tile foyer with vaulted beamed ceiling that looks directly through the open concept living room and dining room to the pool and waterway beyond. To the left of the foyer, a semi-open office with custom built-ins, wood beam accents, and floating shelves looks out on the front yard. An airy open living room, defined by light wood floors, is quite literally a step away from the porcelain tile office/foyer on one side and the dining room on the other side. The open dining room, with its freestanding coral gas fireplace, looks through chalet-style floor-to-ceiling windows and doors to the pool, yacht dock and deepwater canal. It is well served by the gleaming stainless and white gourmet island kitchen with its breakfast bar for six, Wolf 6-burner gas cook top with hood, dual oven, Bosch dishwasher, Pro-Kenmore stainless refrigerator, sleek European cabinetry and tile. Directly off of the kitchen, facing the pool, is an open family room, separated from the dining room only by the dual keystone fireplace. A closet pantry and a laundry room with frontloading Samsung steam washer/dryer lie between the kitchen and 2-bay garage. To the left of the entry foyer, a long porcelain tile hallway leads to three guest bedrooms, each with light wood flooring, walk-in closet and designer tile ensuite bath. At the end of hallway, the gracious master suite includes a master bedroom with light wood floor, electric blackout shades, dual walk-in closets (one with custom built-ins and island), and a glorious waterway view. The designer tile ensuite master bath features a dual glassed walk-in shower and freestanding soaking tub.
Special features include: high beamed ceilings, dual keystone family room/dining room gas fireplace, newly remodeled bathrooms, gourmet island kitchen, open air office with built-ins and floating shelves, impact doors and picture window, storm shutters, concrete construction, recent roof replacement, covered summer kitchen with built-in grill, pool, cabana bath with full shower, and a private 80' dock that accommodates a 60-foot yacht.
