The wide river-like waters of the grand Rio Barcelona Canal set the stage for this impressive estate home on the signature street of Sunrise Key, an exclusive gated island enclave offering tranquility and seclusion in a convenient location minutes from the beach, Las Olas Boulevard, and downtown Fort Lauderdale. From its south-facing shoreline site, this architect-renovated-and-enlarged estate takes in a panoramic perspective over the 300 +/- foot-wide waters at the confluence with the Rio Desota and Rio Balboa Canals, with the view reaching the tree-lined point estates of the North Las Olas Isles and all the way east to the beach skyline.
Introduced by a European-inspired gated garden courtyard, the five-bedroom residence adds modern refinement and livability to the hallmarks of a stately Mediterranean villa. Stepping inside the iron-filigreed glass doors, the lofty great room overlooks the water through bright arched windows soaring toward the wood-paneled cathedral ceiling above the art gallery that wraps around the room's upper level. Perfect for entertaining, the open flow segues into the waterfront family room where glass doors invite guests outside to enjoy the view from the lounge terrace by the pool - all dramatically lit at night-time - served by a summer kitchen/bar sheltered under a pergola.
All of the bedrooms have their own baths and feature a grand master suite that takes in the majestic elevated water view from its invitingly elegant bedroom and sitting room, accompanied by a salon-style marble bath off the fully fitted dressing room with walk-in closets. Deep-draft dockage for an 80 +/- foot vessel is an added luxury of this distinguished Sunrise Key estate, a yachter's haven on the majestic Rio Barcelona Canal, just in from the Intracoastal Waterway.
Sunrise Key Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
