                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Native Philadelphian who's been in South Florida since 1970...and who understands the expectations of a northerner as well as the lifestyle in the tropics. I have a keen sense of comfort & design... the cottage reflects this sense in every detail.

                  Why the Owner Chose Victoria Park:
                  Victoria Park is very tropical-chic & upscale neighborhood centrally poised between Ft Lauderdale's downtown and beach. The lush flora, regentrified properties, and friendly residents make this one of the most desirable hometowns in SoFla. It’s the sort of place where you’ll see mom’s strolling their babies, friends jogging in unison or with their dogs, and people lounging on porch swings. This is also a gay friendly area, only a block from Pineapple Point Resort. The cottage is just a few blocks to the dining/shopping of famed LasOlas Blvd or Downtown. Victoria Cottage & Chalet is also convenient to Wilton Manors, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, Riverwalk, Science & Art Museums, and many other cultural activities. The one mile bicycle ride to the beach takes you past streams of yachts and mansions. In a word…this neighborhood is top notch!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This magical property has 2 units on it. Each is for rent separately OR certainly you can rent both if you have a large group. Private parking for each. Private entrances for each. AWARDED Fort Lauderdale Feature Home 2007 and Trip Advisor Top Residence 2011 And it IS Magical! From the moment I saw this place...I knew it was special. From the homespun cottage feel of the inside - to the tropical rain forest 'mini-resort' feel of the outside...this place is special. And to top it off...after the purchase i raced right over to visit 'my' property for the first time, to be greeted by a squirrel on the front stoop... offering up a coconut seed! Magical, i tell you. This historic property was originally built 1940: fully remodeled and modernized interior, professionally landscaped exterior. LOTS of bamboo inside, LOTS of flowers & nature outside....and a nice gift or spa kit waiting for you from me....or maybe a coconut seed from my squirrel.
