Infused with elegant charm, this artfully remodeled Mediterranean-inspired estate creates a worlds-away waterfront paradise near the beach and Birch State Park.

An inspired waterfront paradise is brought to life in this artfully remodeled estate on a wide canal just off the Intracoastal, only a couple blocks from both the beach and Birch State Park.  Capturing a view to the Intracoastal from the end of the canal, equipped with a dock, this Mediterranean gem has been creatively designed as a labor of love, using painstakingly sourced features that come together in an atmosphere of warm elegance and charm.

Welcoming visitors to the residence, a bougainvillea-walled walkway arrives at the entrance loggia bedecked in garden plantings.  Inside, the gracious living areas flow in an airy courtyard layout connecting to the outdoors, with views of the waterway or exotic tropical greenery from everywhere.  The five bedroom suites provide comfortable accommodations for family and guests.  For creative pursuits, a dance studio and an art studio are also featured.

Equally as inviting as the interiors, the outdoors features two separate settings for entertaining - guests can relax by the pool and fountains in the worlds-away garden courtyard, or dine alfresco on the waterside loggia in another garden area where a fire-pit adds to the romantic night-time effect.  Perfect for those with an appreciation of artistic design and a passion for entertaining, this one-of-a-kind waterfront paradise is infused with a special character all its own.

Location

Northeast 31st Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  On the Intracoastal's eastern shore, this lovely neighborhood is within walking distance of the beach and just north of 180-acre Birch State Park, a peaceful, lushly wooded natural treasure in the middle of Fort Lauderdale.  Beach shops and restaurants are close by, with The Galleria and Las Olas Boulevard just a couple miles south.

Property

Totally remodeled in 2012 with an artistic sensibility, this secluded waterfront paradise is filled with sumptuous greenery on a large corner property.  On the gated front grounds, the walled garden courtyard gives complete privacy to an idyllic outdoor entertainment space featuring a fountained pool with spa.  A tiered, lighted fountain adds to the relaxing experience.  By the waterside, giving a long view to the Intracoastal, another enchanting night-lit garden with a fire-pit gives the setting for the entertainment loggia served by a professional-style summer kitchen.  Full-service dockage on the wide, deep-draft canal can berth a 40?-foot yacht.

Residence

Giving traditional design a creative modern twist, this Mediterranean-inspired residence totals 6,390? square feet in a courtyard floor-plan with five bedrooms, five full and two half baths, impact-glass windows, Crestron smart-house electronics, and a two-bay garage.  Floors are finished in Jerusalem stone, terra cotta, and hardwood.

First Floor:  Comfortably elegant, the living room is appointed with Jerusalem stone floors, a beamed ceiling, and a cast stone fireplace between custom built-ins with a wet bar.  In an excellent flow for entertaining, French doors open this room to both the waterside loggia and pool courtyard.  Opening to the waterside patio, the inviting dining room is fitted with china cabinets.  Providing a casual dining area with a view of the courtyard, the custom chef's kitchen has granite counters, a decorative tiled backsplash, and Thermador appliances including a professional-style six-burner gas range with double ovens.  Leading out to the pool courtyard, the family room with full cabana bath could also serve as a bedroom.  Two more bedrooms have en-suite baths.

Second Floor:  Opening to a romantic waterside balcony, the serene master suite features a wardrobe room and luxurious marble-and-onyx bath with free-standing jetted tub and glassed shower.  Waterside balconies also open off the second master suite's bedroom and bath.  The dance studio has a cushioned wood floor, mirrored walls, and half bath.  The art studio is fitted with built-in cabinetry.
