Nestled right on the Intracoastal Waterway in Coral Ridge, where the wide view stretches to the wooded coastline of Birch State Park, this authentic Mid-Century Modern gem has been given new life in a top-to-bottom renovation featured in "Tropic Magazine" (December, 2017). The artful refurbishment brings leading-edge luxury to the original design by prominent architect John Morris Peterman who, in 1923, was the first to establish an architectural practice in Fort Lauderdale, and whose works include the original city hall and county courthouse. In a style which was truly ground-breaking at the time, defined by its clean lines and bright open floor-plan, this exquisite home feels just as freshly appealing and comfortably livable today. The curvilinear sweep of the motor court serves as the arrival to the residence which has split-stone cladding and a stepped Bermuda-style roof as signature elements of the design, the perfect expression of relaxed South Florida living, with durable easy-care finishes inside and out.
Arranged in a free-flowing layout, the main living spaces bring the outside in through impact-glass window walls spanning the breezy waterside pool patio, a fabulous setting designed as an extension of the indoors, unified by Porcelanosa tile floors which have the stylish look of polished concrete. Also part of the open-concept living space, the high-end kitchen marries beauty and function with Italian-crafted Astra Cucine cabinetry in an ergonomic silhouette of cool, lacquer-finish blue and white hues. All three bedrooms enjoy their own baths and feature the restored original terrazzo floors. Both the private master wing and second suite open their doors to the waterfront patio, the perfect place to relax, have drinks, and dine alfresco while watching the yachts go by in this spectacular wide-open viewpoint on the Intracoastal, looking east to the basin-like waters of Lake Crevalle and south to Birch Park. Complete with a full-service dock that extends the outdoor space to the water's edge, this as-new jewel is a rare find.
Intracoastal Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On the Intracoastal Waterway's western shore, the desirable Coral Ridge community is minutes from the oceanfront of Fort Lauderdale Beach and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Coral Ridge is home to a private yacht club and is also next to a beautiful waterfront park. The Galleria's fine shopping and dining are right at hand, and Las Olas Boulevard is only a couple miles away.
Directly fronting 100+/- feet on the Intracoastal Waterway, this totally renovated Mid-Century Modern estate takes in captivating views over the wide waters to Birch State Park just to the south. On spacious grounds of approximately one-quarter acre, the residence is approached by a semicircular marble-and-porcelain-tile drive amid night-lit tropical landscaping. Along the water side of the house, the expansive Porcelanosa tile patio surrounds the large Diamond-Brite pool amid the gentle sounds of a tall, arcing fountain, and extends to the shoreline equipped with a new concrete seawall cap and full-service dock.
Designed for indoor/outdoor living, the easy single-level floor-plan totals 3,165+/- square feet with three bedrooms, four full baths, and a two-bay garage. Notable construction features include the newly sealed and painted cast concrete roof and new impact-rated PGT windows and exterior doors. Floors in the main living spaces are of Porcelanosa tile, with restored original terrazzo floors in the bedrooms, and specially designed LED lighting throughout.
Right ahead of the foyer, the large great room combines the living and dining areas in an L-shaped layout, with raised ceilings adding to the sense of spaciousness, lined with glass doors opening to the pool patio and spectacular waterfront view. The wood-burning/gas fireplace serves as an inviting focal point in living area, where Swarovski crystal lighting adds a subtly glamorous touch. Creating a separate but open feel, flowing off both the living and dining areas, the showpiece kitchen is artfully designed with custom Italian-lacquered cabinetry from Astra Cucine. The counters are of polished white quartz, and the white backsplashes are subtly textured. For the gourmet chef, appliances include the Miele gas cook-top and microwave as well as the Bosch dual ovens, dual dishwashers, and refrigerator/freezer. Also accessible from the garage, the large laundry room provides a full bath that doubles as the cabana bath. In its own wing, the restful master suite has pocketing glass doors that open to the pool patio and gorgeous waterfront view. Next to a cedar-lined walk-in closet, the spa-like master bath features a multi-head Kohler shower system and a floating dual vanity. Privately placed in another wing, the second and third bedrooms have luxe en-suite baths with glassed showers and floating vanities. One of the bedrooms has its own view of the waterfront and opens out by the pool.
