FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (July 24, 2017) – DND Associates, Fort Lauderdale’s top luxury real estate team affiliated with ONE Sotheby's International Realty, announced another exclusive listing, the historic Needham Estate. Located at 828 SE 4th Street in Fort Lauderdale’s Collee Hammock neighborhood is listed for $4,299,900.

In addition to the Needhams, it was owned by Sheriff Walter Clark of the Kefauver hearing fame who hosted dignitaries such as Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill,” said Dennis Stevick, senior vice president and broker associate with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty and founding partner of DND Associates. “In later years, the home served as the John Robert Powers Modeling School and Gorton College, a finishing school for girls.”

The magnificent Mediterranean Revival estate has a striking gated entrance and is surrounded by stone walls, idyllically situated on almost 17,000 square-feet of lush landscaped grounds and expansive courtyard and 130’+/- of waterfrontage along the New River.

The four bedroom, four full and one half bathroom, two car garage estate includes all of the well-preserved, original features such as the wrought-iron stairway banisters, handmade Cuban tile floors, Pecky Cypress ceilings in the family room and beveled glass in impressive floor-to-ceiling doors in the living room.
