765 Middle River Dr
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304

On a wide stretch of the Middle River, this dramatic waterfront estate commands wondrous views from inside and out, and is also a yachter's dream with the option to dock multiple vessels.

The wide-open majesty of the Middle River sets the stage for this dramatic waterfront estate commanding a prime position on the southwest shore of Sunrise Intracoastal, a prestigious guard-gated peninsula community surrounded by the Middle River and Intracoastal Waterway, just across the bridge from Fort Lauderdale Beach and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park.  Designed to capitalize on the wondrous views from inside and out, the four-bedroom residence looks across the 650+/- foot wide waters of the river, with its passing yachts, to the coastline of picturesque Sunrise Key and the mainland, ending the day with a gorgeous South Florida sunset.  In addition to the dockage parallel to the property's 106+/- foot waterfront, the wide width of the river gives the option of docking a 150+/- foot mega yacht perpendicular to the shore, making the estate a yachter's dream.

Entered from the landscaped motor court, the striking single-story residence takes its inspiration from the streamlined modern designs of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, creatively orchestrated in sleek lines and curvilinear forms that call to mind the curves of the coastline and waterways.  Art glass and bird's-eye maple are just a few of the special finishes used throughout, with the custom fittings as meticulously designed as the interiors of a yacht.  In an excellent layout for entertaining, glass doors join the open living areas to the waterside lanai and pool terrace, the perfect place to relax outdoors in the midst of the breathtaking riverfront scenery.   Notable for its dramatic views and substantial docking capabilities, this Middle River estate is an extraordinary find.
