Property description

UPDATE: The month of February is now available!
Located in Historic SailBoat Bend area of downtown Fort Lauderdale, this neighborhood is the only Historic District in Fort Lauderdale. You are in walking distance to the downtown River Front, dining, theater, Broward Performing Arts Center, Children Museum, water taxi to A1A beaches and shopping and dining on Las Olas Blvd.

The property sits right on the water and has a feeling of being on a boat when sitting inside the house. This property was once a boat house built around 1925 and was fully renovated in 2005 and is only one of a few properties that sit right on the water. City zoning codes no longer allow building right on the waterfront without a set-back from the water. The 40 foot deck sits right over the water and is on the New River. Being a one bedroom there is an Aero bed mattress for guest. The pool is not heated.
