3275 NE 15th Ct Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304

Embraced by nature's beauty in a worlds-away realm in the midst of Fort Lauderdale, an enchanting estate is discovered on the peaceful lagoon waters of Lake Helen, part of Birch State Park, with the ocean's sands beckoning right at the other end of the short cul-de-sac in the gracious community of Las Olas by the Sea.  Tastefully renovated by its current owners, this one-of-a-kind residence blends Old Florida charm with modern comfort while taking advantage of its setting with lovely living spaces inside and outdoors.

Lofty wood-beamed vaulted ceilings, warm terra cotta tile floors, and a wood-burning fireplace with full-height chimneypiece are among the features that give the home its special character, making each room feel wonderfully inviting.  Doubling as the entrance to the house, the colonnaded, lantern-lit loggia spans the romantic pool courtyard - the perfect place to relax, entertain, and watch the sunset in this private botanical oasis laden with lush greenery backed by the park's placid lagoon.  In addition to a first-floor bedroom suite, the main house features a beautiful master suite as the only space upstairs, opening to a terrace where picturesque views overlook the pool to Lake Helen and the wooded parklands.  Alongside the courtyard, connecting to the main house through the loggia, the coach house provides guests with the privacy of two separate suites, each having its own entry from a covered outdoor staircase.  Equally appealing for its timeless charm and idyllic setting in Las Olas by the Sea, this exquisite compound-like estate is a rare find.

 

Location

Northeast 15th Court, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Las Olas by the Sea is a charming beachfront community nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and 180+/- acre Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a natural treasure in the middle of Fort Lauderdale which preserves Broward County's last tropical hardwood hammock.  In its quiet setting, Las Olas by the Sea is just a short drive from fine shopping and dining at The Galleria and on famous Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale's signature thoroughfare.  Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is only 25+/-  minutes away.

 

Property

Set behind a walled and gated entry at the end of a cul-de-sac, a short stroll from the beach, this Spanish Mediterranean-inspired estate is enveloped in a botanical oasis fronting 145+/-  feet on Lake Helen, a serene lagoon that spans Birch State Park.  The main residence and coach house frame the romantic night-lit, terra cotta-tiled courtyard that surrounds the heated pool and raised spa in the total privacy of gorgeous greenery.  The property has access to the lake for canoeing and paddleboarding. 

 

Residence

Styled with Old Florida charm, this inviting residence and companion coach house together total 4,981+/-  feet with four bedrooms, five full baths, four-zone cooling, and a two-bay garage.  Dade County pine trusses are featured in the exceptional construction, and most rooms have terra cotta tile floors.  Impact-rated glass is used throughout the main residence and most of the coach house.

First Floor:  At the courtyard's loggia, leaded-glass sidelights frame the handsome entry into the open living room highlighted by a wood-beamed vaulted ceiling.  Double sets of French doors also open to the courtyard from this room which is anchored by a Mediterranean-style floor-to-ceiling corner fireplace across from the floating spiral staircase.  Through a columned archway, the vaulted family room is highlighted by leaded-glass clerestory windows.  Open to the living room and dining room, the gourmet kitchen has white hardwood cabinetry, Ubatuba granite counters, a Jenn-Air induction range and microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, and Miele dishwasher.  The adjacent custom-fitted office has outside access.  The private bedroom with en-suite bath opens to the pool courtyard.  Another full bath doubles as the powder room.

Second Floor:   In the romantic vaulted master suite, glass doors open to a wraparound balcony where views overlook the pool to the lake and wooded parklands. Multiple closets and other built-in storage accompany the beautiful master bath featuring a jetted tub, glassed shower, dual vanities, and access to another balcony.

Coach House:  With the garage and laundry room on its ground level, the two-story coach house features two private guest suites upstairs, opening to the balcony walkway accessed from the outdoor staircase of the courtyard's loggia.  Overlooking the pool to the lake and lush parklands, both suites have their own sitting areas and full baths.
