649 SW 8th Ter Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33315

$2.095 Million


Southwest 8th Terrace, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  On the South Fork of the New River, near its confluence with the Tarpon River, Tropical Point gives a true sense of Old Florida in the private quietude of this desirable gated peninsula community next to Lewis Landing Park, in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, just southwest of downtown and Las Olas Boulevard.


Tucked on a bend of the river, this rare estate captures an enchanting panoramic outlook on the winding waters and lush coastline centered on a tree-cloaked peninsula on the opposite shore.  Mature shade trees and palms beautify the park-like grounds of this one-of-a-kind property on 85 +/- feet of riverfront with a raised seawall and newer dock large enough for a 75 +/- foot yacht.  Enlarged and renovated by noted Fort Lauderdale architect Arthur Bengochea, the traditional Florida-style residence opens to a riverfront loggia and sun-splashed pool terrace by tree-studded lawns with a tranquil fountain.


Taking in the gorgeous river view from most rooms, the comfortable floor-plan totals 3,308+/- square feet with four bedrooms, three full baths, a three-bay garage, and new roof replaced in 2014.  There are impact-rated sliding glass doors along the riverfront loggia, and all windows have storm panels.

Looking out on the pool and river, the great room offers easy living with spacious open sitting and dining areas.  The tile floors and built-ins coordinate with the open-plan kitchen which shares the river view and is separated by a bar counter.  Also opening to the pool and river view, the guest master suite has a generous bath and wardrobe room.  Off a side hallway are two bedrooms and another bath.  Totally private as the only upstairs space, the large, tray-ceilinged master suite captures an elevated river view from its treetop balcony, and also opens to a balcony on the other side.  The suite features three walk-in closets and a riverview bath with jetted tub, shower, and separate water closet.
