Private Homes house description
“THE LIVIN’ IS EASY”
This Newly Renovated Designer Home is hidden behind a tall wall and an iron gate providing a tranquil oasis. It is hard to imagine that you are still in the center of all the action of Fort Lauderdale while you lay floating in your warm private pool counting the stars or sitting by your Canal counting the fish that jump.
Located on a dead end street, this is a safe and respected area. Yet it is just a few minutes away from everything you would expect to see in Florida…the ocean, shopping, golf and all the attractions!!!
The “open concept” layout of the house centers around the Courtyard Pool in the front and the Canal in the back. It offers many different places to gather as a group and other areas for private reflection, both indoors and out.
The pool and terrace areas are completely secluded surrounded by a tall wall and landscaped with huge pots, cascading flowers and palm trees
Comfortable chaise lounge beds and cushy seating are provided for quiet afternoon naps or cozy conversations in the shade of the vaulted ceiling and the breeze of two outdoor ceiling fans. Or take in the full sun any time of the day then dip in the pool for a refreshing cool-down.
Lunch or dinner can be easily served by the pool at the outdoor dining table with gas barbeque.
Enter the house through a set of French Doors and into the living area. Walk down a tropical garden path to sit by the Canal Or lounge in the Screened Sunroom, overlooking the breezy Canal and gardens.
ABOUT THE HOUSE
Open the French doors off the Courtyard Pool Terrace to reveal a wonderful Open Concept Designer Home.
This modern renovation includes a stylish granite kitchen with all the culinary toys to assist the most discriminating chef: modern side by side fridge freezer/ice machine, stainless steel dishwasher, oven/stove and microwave. A full size washer and dryer are in the Cabana room so there is no need to pack a lot of cloths.
There are tall stools for casual breakfasts at the granite counter, and a large oak block table with white leather chairs that overlooks the pool for more formal dining. Or eat on a glass garden table in the screened sunroom overlooking the Canal in a surround of up lit palms, flowers and a banana tree. Here lingering in the breeze you can capture the aroma of the jasmine tree. There is also a lounge chair and rockers perfect for an afternoon book nook accompanied with frosty lemonade.
The entertaining area centers around the wood burning fireplace. The living room is on one side, kitchen on the other. Dining room and sunroom complete the quadrant. A large lofty leather sofa, 2 rattan chairs with lots of pillows and a mahogany writing desk all sit in front of the fireplace on an area rug set on crisp white ceramic tiles.
All bedrooms are large. There are three. One King with master ensuite bathroom including a large walk in shower, and two guest bedrooms each with Queen Beds. The house accommodates 6 people comfortably. The two guest rooms share the second bathroom with tub and shower. The master bedroom and one guest room also go directly out to a garden walkway that leads to the pool (perfect to sneak out for a midnight dip!)
ABOUT THE AREA
The house is 15 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport, 45 min. from Miami Airport
This property is located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, and is surrounded by the Middle River featuring rows of man-made canals.
The Middle River joins the Atlantic Ocean by way of the Intercoastal Waterway.
The house is on one of these canals in a very safe and friendly neighborhood. It is located on a dead end street so there is very little street traffic. It is very quiet residential and protected by neighborhood watch.
Within a few minutes you are anywhere you need to be- this is a great location. The Atlantic Ocean and some of the worlds’ best sandy beaches are 5 minutes away.
Grocery Stores are all nearby. Movies, Malls, Restaurants & Shopping of all types.
The main tourist street - Las Olas is 8 minutes away featuring galleries, fine dining and bars. The beach strip is 5 minutes away for night time cruising. The resort town of Lauderdale By The Sea is just 10 minutes north.
For day excursions go to famous Boca Raton (20 min. north), South Beach-Miami and Lincoln Mall (45 min. south), Sawgrass Mills Discount Mall (2O minutes west) or the Everglades (30 min west). The science museum features an Imax theater, and the Art Gallery has ongoing exhibits that change. Broadway visits the Broward Centre which is 8 minutes away. Also don’t miss the old town RIVERWALK and the Cruise Ship Terminals. Picnic or rollerblade in Hugh Taylor National Park watching the boats cruise by.

A fantastic place for great relaxation. This place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet place in a well maintained area. There are no surprises in this beautiful house. All that you need is there. Internet, tv, dvd etc. We even had access to long distance phone calls....to Canada...amazing. We felt right at home and I must say that I envied the owners of having such a nice place. We are lucky that we had the chance to experience this incredible haven. Being not far from downtown Fort Lauderdale ( the beaches are 10 mins away ) and in the middle of all the shopping and the restaurants but in a nice resident area,it was perfect. This being about my 20th time in Lauderdale, I must say that this time was the best we experienced. What you see on the photos is exactly what you get....except that the picture of the pool is even nicer when you get there because they have put marble all around the pool....it makes it really nice and classy...no surprises...it is that nice. In your back yard, you are on the canal where you can see boats go by. You can catch the last rays on the deck....sunset and all....enchanting! The rooms are nicely decorated with comfortable beds. Plenty of linnen and towels for you to use. They even have washer and dryer with everything you need.It shows that they are proud of their place and it also shows that they want you to enjoy your stay. The manager (Janet) is but a phone call away if you need anything and is quick to give you what you need....no questions asked. She is very reliable and respect your privacy by letting you know if or when she will come by....only if you need her for something...You feel like you own the place.....for a few days at least. I do not have one bad thing to say about this place...I really don't....My only concern is that sooner or later people will find this gem and it will be harder to have a reservation because we will definitely be back! You will not regret your stay....with a pool in the backyard completely surrounded by a wall....really private! Hope you will enjoy it like we did.... Norm
