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!)
