Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301

$2.895 Million

Fronting 100 feet of a deep finger canal, with private dockage for an 80-foot yacht, this historic gem was masterfully designed in the Bermuda Colonial style.


Originally conceived by famed architect Russell Pancoast in 1939, and renovated several times over the years, this 2-story, 6-bedroom, 4-1/2 bath residence with 2-bay garage in 5,655+/- total square feet takes full advantage of its tropical South Florida setting. With many rooms opening to a balcony, patio or porch, much of the living area focuses on exteriors.


Several expansive covered brick patios at the rear of the residence, offering multiple areas for sunning, lounging and dining, surround a large 18' x 36' foot heated rectangular pool which runs parallel to a private wood dock along 100 feet of deep waterfront. The resulting view, paired with mature palms, pristine hedges, tropical foliage and Bermuda-inspired Colonial architecture, bespeaks a lifestyle few can attain. 


The interior of the residence conveys the same sense of gracious living, with graceful arches that lead from the two-story foyer, with its softly curved wood staircase, into both the formal living room and formal dining room. With its updated chef's island kitchen with breakfast bar, separate informal breakfast area, Florida room and family room, and half a dozen different bedrooms, including a gloriously secluded master suite with a spacious sitting room, this residence is clearly meant for Palm Beach-style living.



Coral Way, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The prestigious Las Olas Isles waterfront community epitomizes the quintessence of Fort Lauderdale, a world-famous yachting capital known as The Venice of America.  Nestled on scenic finger isles on Grand Canals, this well-located neighborhood centers on 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.  Also close by is downtown Fort Lauderdale's vibrant Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District, home to noted cultural attractions including the NSU Art Museum and Broward Center for the Performing Arts.  Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient 20+/- minute commute.



The approach to this delightful residence is a path of red brick outlined by mature palm trees, low trimmed hedges and islands of lawn. This luxuriant tropical greenery is juxtaposed against the crisp white residence, punctuated by blue plantation shutters. The result is an airy island-style sanctuary. Privacy hedges and lush landscaping provide all of the separation needed. By contrast, the rear of the residence offers open, unobstructed waterway views along with all of the essentials for the ultimate lifestyle. Multiple shaded patios look out on a spacious deck for sunning, dining, and entertaining. The brick deck surrounding the expansive heated pool provides separation from the private wood dock that easily accommodates an 80-foot yacht.



First Floor: Guests are welcomed into the airy two-story foyer with its gracefully curved wood staircase and hardwood floors. Off of the foyer, arched entries lead to a formal living room with crown molding, hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows; a formal dining room with hardwood floors and bay window waterway view; and a Florida room with Mexican tile floor, French doors that open out to the pool, and a full bath adjacent. A huge gourmet chef's kitchen with stainless steel double oven and appliances, granite countertops and center island with breakfast bar and wine storage opens to a separate casual dining area as well as a family room with brick floor and fireplace wall, beamed ceiling, a built-in window seat with nearly floor-to-ceiling waterway views, and French doors that open to the pool.  A bedroom, half bath, and a laundry room complete the first level.


Second Floor: To the left of the stairway, an expansive private master suite with hardwood floors includes a large step down bedroom, a separate sitting room with Moroccan tile fireplace, two balconies, and a master bath with a shower and dual sinks. To the right of the stairs, two bedrooms share a full Jack and Jill bath, while two other large bedrooms share a full hall bath.
