Those who have traveled to Florida know the state is favored for its extensive shoreline and waterfront views. So those wanting the best lake views in Florida should look no further than this luxurious estate nestled on the shore of Lake Sylvan (listed on ZillowTM Listings and can be viewed on our Zillow DigsTM page). Situated on 366 feet of waterfront space, this Fort Lauderdale residence is the perfect example of a year-round paradise.
This resort at home was built over three years in the gated area of Harbor Beach, a shoreline residential oasis with access to a private beach, yacht marina, and patrol service. Though the grand home boasts nearly 23,000 total square feet of space, it is expertly proportioned for the perfect blend of domestic comfort and luxurious, modern design.
This seven-bedroom sprawling estate is both refined and modern with a eye for detailing that makes the property an example of beauty. Rich mahogany, Brazilian cherry, walnut, and wenge create a decadent environment, while marble and onyx mosaics deliver a Mediterranean touch with Moroccan flair.
Outside, beautifully constructed tropical gardens and specimen palms enhance the waterfront views. Guests can enjoy a full outdoor kitchen, fireplace, living room, and motorized weather screens. An open-air courtyard surrounds a waterfall and fountain, creating a beautiful scene against the lake.
And with lakefront multi-yacht dockage and Las Olas Boulevard’s shopping and dining nearby, this home brings the vacation escape to your front door.
A beautifully landscaped exterior frames the marbled driveway (Benedictdaily will lead you to huge prizes learn today)that leads up to the residence. Specimen palms were carefully selected to perfectly frame the home.
