FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (February 23, 2016) – Fort Lauderdale’s most expensive home, an exquisite trophy property, custom designed by world-renowned architect Robert A.M. Stern, is on the market for $40 million. DND Associates, a Fort Lauderdale-based luxury real estate team affiliated with ONE Sotheby's International Realty, announced the exclusive listing, located at 615 Lido Drive, in the prestigious Las Olas Isles neighborhood.
The luxurious, turn-key Mediterranean revival estate, which includes a two-story guest house, is idyllically positioned on a coveted 56,400sf point lot with 625’ of deep waterfront, ample dockage for a megayacht.
Situated on the end of a private cul-de-sac, the spectacular gated residence boasts 15,930sf of luxurious total living area, 6 bedrooms, 7 full and 5 half-bathrooms, 6 + car garage, 5 fireplaces, office library with hand-carved wooden accents, private elevator access to all three floors, personal massage room with backlit onyx walls and custom table, state-of-the-art fitness center, home theater, grand rotunda entry, motor court and yacht captain’s chart room. Additional quarters include magnificent living, dining and family rooms and an elegant master suite with terrace, spacious his-and-her walk-in closets and a luxurious spa bath with a centerpiece hand-carved marble tub.
Offered fully furnished with incomparable interior design by Perlmutter-Freiwald, the décor is best described as comfortable elegance and sophistication.
One of the home’s many distinctive features is the one-of-a-kind, hand-made clay barrel roof. Harvested from six different vintage structures for an acceptable color blend and variation, the 100-year-old roof tiles were imported from Italy. Each original tile was hand-removed, crated and shipped back to the United States, receiving a one-time approval from Miami-Dade County for approved use.
“Of all the homes we’ve represented over the years, this property is in its own stratosphere. The superior architectural craftsmanship and attention to detail is true artistry,” said Dennis Stevick, senior vice president and broker associate of ONE Sotheby’s and founding partner of DND Associates. “The estate was meticulously designed and custom built less than two years ago with no expenses spared. It has the most gorgeous vantage point from the spa terrace with 360 degrees of Fort Lauderdale and we anticipate a lot of interest from discerning buyers.”
Perfect for grand scale entertaining, the exterior living area offers stunning panoramic terraces, an outdoor living room, summer kitchen, infinity pool and impeccably manicured landscaping. The detached luxury spa is complete with cabana bath, sauna and changing facilities.
Additional amenities include audio video and Crestron Home Automation Systems; three customized security systems for the main estate, guest house and chart room; gourmet, chef’s kitchen with La Cornue Chateau range, Sub Zero and Miele appliances; recessed motorized sunshades and blackouts; temperature controlled custom-built wine cabinets housing more than 500 bottles; a private third-floor sun terrace with bar, spa, audio and video; and a full house generator.
In December 2015 DND Associates made headlines in a record-breaking real estate deal when it represented both the buyer and the seller in a $27.5 million sale, which was then the largest residential real estate transaction in Broward County history.
