It is evident that a lot of love went into the design and structure of the home. From the exterior’s landscaping and brick laid to the interior’s wooden beamed and intricate ceilings, there is no shortage of beauty here.
Known to locals and boaters affectionately as “The White House,” the home on the Intracoastal is visible from the 17th Street Causeway, Lauderdale Yacht Club, Bahia Mar and more. The water frontage is wrapped around three sides of the property making it an island point of paradise with 817 feet of waterfront views.
Built in 1938 with additions and updates made throughout the years, the estate boasts 1.4 acres of lot with a total of eleven bedrooms, twelve full baths, five half baths, an eight-car garage, pool area with cabana, home theater, library, office, entertainment center, five fireplaces and separate two-apartment guest house.
A notable feature is the great room/entertainment center with panoramic waterfront views from 17th Street Causeway to Bahia Mar and everything in between. The layout includes coffered and beamed two-story ceilings and a wet bar that is fully equipped with a beer keg dispenser, Enkeboll details on cabinetry and bar, two-drawer Sub-Zero refrigerators, full wine cooler and sink.
Upstairs, one wing is occupied by the spacious master suite. Inside you’ll find a fireplace, sitting room/gym (with wet bar, refrigerator and TV), his-and-her closets and a Romeo and Juliet balcony. The master bath includes a spa tub, steam shower, his-and-her lavatories, water closet with etched glass and marble throughout.
Now, for the spectacular, unmatched outdoor space: the extensive motor court and waterfront outdoor space/pool area. The brick motor court features an elaborate shell fountain with shell water spigots and a huge banyan tree as the centerpiece. The waterfront area is met with a 375-foot concrete dock with power and electric boat lift. On the west side, there’s an outdoor fireplace, portable gas grill and wet bar. On the east side, the resort-style pool has a fountain, gas grill and portable grill and a large covered gazebo with full cabana bath and dressing room.
