Epitomizing the Lauderdale Harbors luxury yachting lifestyle, this Intracoastal point estate sits commandingly on a 900+/- foot-wide stretch of the waterway - looking across to the Harbor Beach coastline - where the panoramic vista wraps around the Cerro Gordo River, right across from the yacht-filled Lauderdale Marina, just north of the inlet. The choice setting stands out not only for its spectacular view, but also for its delightful breezy southeast exposure and its position on a low-wake zone of the Intracoastal, with the sheltered side shoreline having dockage for up to a 120+/- foot mega vessel. Fashioned like a lavish resort compound on...the Mediterranean coast, the six-bedroom residence was designed by award-winning architect Manuel J. Diaz and built to the highest standards by W.A. Bentz Construction, and is offered move-in-ready with most furnishings. Stanchioned gates usher guests into the entrance courtyard, where a garden fountain sits between the main residence and self-contained guest house, also perfect for the boat captain's quarters. Beyond the gracious foyer, the great room looks out over the infinity pool to the Intracoastal Waterway, and gives a warmly elegant European feel to this expansive two-story gathering space - encircled by balcony lofts above - with ashlar-patterned Jerusalem stone floors and pecky cypress ceilings as signature elements. Ideal for entertaining, the first-floor living areas spill outdoors to the sprawling pool terrace that has the Intracoastal Waterway as the backdrop for its various lounging and dining spaces. Upstairs, an elevated expanse of sweeping waters and coastline is seen from the grand master suite, which gives the option of functioning as a lavish full-floor haven, using the second bedroom as its office or exercise room. An impressive showplace, one of the few Intracoastal point properties in Lauderdale Harbors, this rare estate compound is the ultimate yachter's paradise.
