Homes on the water make for compelling real estate, yet they can vary drastically in style. Yesterday in Curbed’s House of the Day column we highlighted a waterfront retreat in the Adirondacks. Built over 100 years ago and with a lakefront boathouse, it offers a very different feel from today’s sleek listing: a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath house in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The 3,436-square-foot residence is a boxy contemporary built in 2004 on the waterways of the Seven Isles neighborhood. The home is all about the water access, featuring a sparkling pool and boat lift that can accommodate 20,000 pounds. The listing is located on a deep, wide canal with no fixed bridges to the ocean.
Inside, a wall of windows faces the pool, and the home features soaring ceilings, electric shades, and an elevator. The kitchen’s marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances are the star of the lower level’s open floorplan, while upstairs you’ll find two master suites, a private office, and a large den. Throw in the second-story terrace with great views, and this is a getaway with Florida style to spare. Interested? 101 South Gordon Road is on the market now for $2,499,000.
