Fort Lauderdale, FL

Fronting 100' on Lake Sylvan, this Georgian European inspired estate enjoys picturesque west-facing water views and sunsets. Chicago brick motor court with two side-entry garages with a total of four bays. By the Lake, two verandahs create outdoor living/dining room, one with a fireplace. Marble terraces and walkways surround the sleek saltwater pool, highlighted by artistic stepping stones and a spa, extending to the full length marble dock capable of handling up to an 80' yacht. Visually stunning while luxuriously livable, this sophisticated showplace has 5 bedrooms, five and one half baths, and upstairs/downstairs laundry rooms. The exquisite finishes and furnishings are by Marc-Michaels Interior Design. Kolbe impact glass windows and doors are featured along with a gas generator. FIRST FLOOR - Inside the welcoming entry, the foyer focuses on the lakefront view through the spacious open living/dining room, an impressively elegant gathering space with honed limestone floors and glass pocket doors flowing to the poolside verandah. Clad in dove grey onyx, a sleek sculptural fireplace anchors the living area. Next to the dramatic open staircase, the see-through glass enclosed wine room itself is a work of art. A fusion of form and function, the epicurean's kitchen has European white oak floors, furniture-grade cabinetry, oyster-hued Caesarstone counters, and an island topped in Lagos Blue Limestone. High-end appliances include the Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, two Miele dishwashers, Wolf 60" gas range with double ovens, and Wolf Wall oven, microwave, and warmer drawer. Two walls of glass pocket doors open the adjoining family/breakfast room to both of the poolside verandahs. The inviting library also opens to a verandah and lake views. Two bedrooms, one leading to the pool patio, both have en-suite baths, one doubling as the cabana bath. A powder room also serves this level. SECOND FLOOR - Ascending the staircase or elevator leads to a loft-style sitting room where French doors open to a spectacular pergola-covered deck looking out across Lake Sylvan. Through a double-door entry, the ultra-luxurious master suite unfolds over an entire wing opening to a romantic lakefront balcony. Generously sized to include an inviting sitting area, the master bedroom is accompanied by two wardrobe rooms and an exquisite spa-like marble bath which features a free-standing tub, glassed shower, and two separate water closets. In the opposite wing, two luxurious bedroom suites, one with a lakeside balcony.
