Skillfully designed to create an over-arching sense of light and space, this casually elegant 2-story Mediterranean, with its 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, open loft, study/library and large 2-bay garage, combines all the elements essential to truly gracious living. Volume ceilings and arched windowpane French doors, opening out to a covered dining loggia and expansive waterside terrace, seem to significantly extend its 4,110 total square feet of living space. The flow of rooms, both upstairs and down, works to ensure privacy, comfort, pure convenience. With glorious waterway views from the living room, family room, master bedroom and rear-facing guest suite; a 15' x 30' pool with expansive deck and shaded conversation area; and a full-length private dock (with electric and water) that accommodates an 80' yacht on a deep-draft canal with direct ocean access, this residence offers the quintessential South Florida lifestyle with real emphasis on style.
Lido Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Beautifully sited on a 1/4+ acre waterfront lot on a quiet street in serene Las Olas Isles, a sought-after yachting community in the heart of the city that offers direct boating access to the Atlantic Ocean from its sheltered waterways, unobstructed by fixed bridges. There, magnificent deepwater estates reside on tranquil finger isles that stretch to the north and south of charming Las Olas Boulevard, with its boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and sidewalk cafes. To the west, that mile-long+/- boulevard is anchored by Fort Lauderdale's Museum of Art, just north of the Riverwalk, a scenic promenade that is home to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Adjacent to Las Olas Boulevard and minutes from the beach, this ideal location is barely a 15-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
A circular Chicago brick drive, defined by manicured lawn with low hedges and mature trees, gracefully leads to an arched double door front entry and 2-bay garage.

A separate conversation area enjoys the shade of a multi-trunk ficus. Beyond the pool, the 100' dock, supplying electricity and water for an 80-foot yacht, conveniently lies on a finger canal with direct, unobstructed, Atlantic Ocean access.
