325 ft of Intercoastal Waterway
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
For seclusion, serenity, and mega-yacht dockage, few homes anywhere can match this British Caribbean-inspired estate in the gated Idlewyld community in Fort Lauderdale. With an extraordinary 325 feet of Intracoastal Waterway frontage and directly accessible to the Atlantic Ocean, the 6,070 square-foot tropical oasis is adjacent to Sunset Lake as well as Fort Lauderdale Beach and DC Alexander parks. In an historic area of gorgeous waterfront properties, the single-family three-level in the “Venice of America” is sited on approximately three-quarters of an acre on one of the finger isles south of landmark Las Olas Boulevard, with its boutiques, restaurants, galleries and sidewalk cafés.
The Intracoastal is being dredged, and when completed next year in the Idlewyld area, the Intracoastal in front of the home’s dock will be increased from 12 feet down to 18 feet. “That would allow a yacht like Lex Wexner’s Limitless, at more than 300 feet long, to tie up here,” says Tim Elmes, listing broker with Coldwell Banker Previews International, Fort Lauderdale.
And, with the high cost of marina docking fees, the new owner of the home could dock here and practically live without housing cost. “With today’s costs of money, the home would, in essence, be free.” Elmes comments.
This island paradise is offered at $7,495,000.
