Car: Recommended

The house is in Wilton Manors (part of Fort Lauderdale) and is 15 minutes walking distance from the shops and restaurants of Wilton Manors on Wilton Drive. 5 miles from Downtown Fort Lauderdale. 3 miles from the beach. Just east of I-95 located near Andrews Avenue between Oakland Park Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard (two main exits of I-95).

Fort Lauderdale is one of the world's premier sport fishing destinations. Sailfish, Swordfish, Snapper, Tuna, etc. Charter your own boat with captain for a half day or full day. The scuba diving here is great with lots of wrecks to dive and fishes to see. Plenty of sightseeing boats, snorkelling boats - even a water taxi which runs along the inter-coastal canal next to some incredible waterfront mansions. Golf, sailing, and tours of the Everglades National Park are other activities to keep you busy on your vacation! Great food, world famous beaches, fantastic night-life, the list goes on and on. Tourists and locals love being in Fort Lauderdale. You will too!

Other Activities: Ocean, beach, sunshine, night-life - Fort Lauderdale has everything but snow skiing!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I moved to Fort Lauderdale 15 years ago. I grew up on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland but found that Florida's tropical climate suited me. I have travelled the world spending over a year in Thailand learning the language, studied for a semester in Perth, Australia, visited South Africa for a few months, worked on a 210 foot private yacht in the Caribbean and have backpacked all over Europe. I studied French for a few years and I understand a tiny bit of Spanish. Don't worry if you don't speak English very well. I am used to communicating with people who speak little English!

Why the Owner Chose Wilton Manors:
I designed and built this house as an owner/builder which means I acted as the general contractor. I studied other homes and wanted to create something special. Nobody else has a hot tub on their second floor deck. It's important to have a shady area near the pool since you can't spend all your time in the sun. I designed the electric heated marble pool with a 6 foot wide waterfall and an umbrella so it would give the house a resort feeling. My pool is nicer than the pools you would find in most $2 million homes!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Everybody wants privacy. I planted the areca palm and oleander trees myself back in 2006. They give the backyard complete privacy so you can use the heated outdoor shower anytime and bathing suits are optional. Even the hot tub is completely private except for the moon and the stars!
