Set behind the guarded gates of Riviera Isles, this inviting custom-built estate stands on the deep-draft Rio Coral waters in a prestigious waterfront neighborhood synonymous with Fort Lauderdale's acclaim as The Venice of America and a world-class yachting capital. Taking its cue from Key West's relaxed coastal style, this architect-designed residence flows easily from inside to the outdoors, where breezy two-story verandahs span both the front and back of the house, accented with nautically inspired railings as one of the subtly sophisticated touches.
Warm oak floors carry through the interiors, set off by polished mahogany design elements as finely crafted as the fittings of a yacht. Entered from the front verandah by a lovely garden, the foyer flows right into the large great room that combines the two-story living room and waterside family room between a striking gridwork of mahogany pillars giving the two gathering spaces a separate but open feel. Between this room and the open dining room, French doors flow out to the waterfront verandah's relaxing outdoor living/dining area, stepping down to lounge terraces, all taking in the view of the shoreline and sunset from this serene garden setting. The four bedrooms all have en-suite baths and feature the beautifully spacious master suite which spans the entire water side of the second floor, opening to its own expansive balcony looking out on the tranquil waters amid the lush treetops of swaying palms.
For the yachter, the waterfront is equipped with full-service dockage for a 55 +/- foot craft, just a few properties from the point in this convenient location giving quick, easy access to an ocean cruise without the obstruction of fixed bridges. While enjoying the quiet seclusion of Riviera Isles, the estate also has fabulous shopping and dining right at hand on Las Olas Boulevard, with the Atlantic Ocean's sun-drenched beachfront and sparkling waters only about a mile away.
Solar Isle Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. A prestigious guard-gated waterfront neighborhood on finger isles with deep-water yacht dockage, Riviera Isles is well located just south of famous Las Olas Boulevard, lined with fine boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and cafes as its stretches toward the ocean beach right across the bridge. Only a couple miles away, downtown Fort Lauderdale's picturesque Riverwalk serves as the cornerstone of the city's dynamic arts and entertainment district, home to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and NSU Art Museum. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient 20-to-25 +/- minute drive.
Looking west on the Rio Coral waters, this Key West-inspired estate fronts 65 +/- feet of shoreline with full-service dockage for a 55 +/- foot yacht. Verandahs open off both levels of the east and west sides of the house, with the fenced and gated waterside grounds landscaped as a garden oasis with lounge areas among the lush tropical foliage.
Designed by Robert Vick Architect, P.A. and custom built in 2008, this distinctive residence provides a total of 4,912 +/- square feet including four bedrooms, four and a-half baths, laundry rooms on both levels, and a two-bay garage with high ceilings that could accommodate lifts if desired. Oak floors and custom mahogany elements are featured along with impact-rated windows and exterior doors.

First Floor: Directly ahead of the foyer with powder room, the great room's large open space is shared by the double-height living room and the waterside family room, defined by custom mahogany millwork. Leading to the waterfront porch, French doors are between this room and the open-plan waterside dining room, separated by a bar counter from the chef's kitchen custom designed with crisp white cabinetry, granite counters, a wood-topped island, and stainless steel Thermador appliances including a gas range with griddle and oven. French doors also lead to a waterfront porch from the kitchen's breakfast area facing a lush garden. The laundry/utility room is across from a workshop/storage room also accessible from the garage. Off the foyer, the office/den has a walk-in closet and is across from a private guest suite with its own bath and walk-in closet.
Second Floor: Opening to a full-length treetop verandah looking out above the waterway, the beautiful private master suite is generously sized to include a sitting area, custom-fitted wardrobe room, and luxurious marble-encased bath featuring a soaking tub, glassed shower, two granite-topped vanities, and a separate water closet. Across the hall, opening to a verandah above the front garden, two more bedrooms both have walk-in closets and en-suite baths. The second laundry room completes this level.
