About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-7)

Enjoy staying in the center of Fort Lauderdale in a home that is a part of "Old Florida", freshly renovated to provide all the modern conveniences. Situated in a historic neighborhood and just across the street from the New River, this house is walking distance from the Performing Arts Center, the Riverwalk, and the new supermarket. Las Olas Boulevard with its shops and restaurants is just minutes away by car as are the famous beaches of Fort Lauderdale. Just 10 minutes from the airport with close access to I-95 makes this home convenient to any destination in the greater Fort Lauderdale area.

The restoration of this home has honored its architectural heritage with Dade County Pine floors and French doors separating the two bedrooms from the oversized living room with its wall of jalousie windows. A granite countertop offers additional seating or serving space between the kitchen and the amply sized dining room. A sunny family room is directly off the kitchen and comes with a work station and additional dining area and television. Tasteful decorating touches give an air of elegance and sophistication to this gem.

The house sits on a double lot with mature planting and a large yard. A patio/deck with table and chairs is the perfect place to enjoy the wonderful Fort Lauderdale weather. Take a walk across the street to the little park on the New River and watch the parade of boats. Or just sit in the screened in front porch and watch the neighbors pass by. A restful space with numerous spots to relax makes this home ideal for a group or a family to stay. Anyone can appreciate this home’s spaciousness and enjoy entertaining guests both inside and out.

Owner info

About the owner: This property has a lot of history. Sold out of the family in the 1930's, the house was built by the woman who owned the lumberyard in town in the 1930's. We were able to reacquire it some years back and make it part of the original property the family owned in the 1920's. We are thrilled to be able to share a piece of Florida history with our guests.

Why the Owner Chose South Fort Lauderdale, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA:
I have been coming to Florida and to this house since I was a young child. It is an area that is full of wonderful memories as well as great weather. Beautiful public beaches and great access to all that Florida has to offer make it a great plus.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you are looking for a resort type experience - this is not the place for you. If on the other hand you like to travel and feel like a native, in a relaxing cozy environment, this is it! Stroll across the street and watch the boat parade, the draw bridges going up and down, or hop in the car and head to the beach.
