509 Poinciana Dr
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33301

Canopied by gorgeous park-like shade trees behind gated, wrought iron fencing, this Modern Mediterranean estate looks west on the wide waters of the Rio Idlewyld Canal in the gated Idlewyld neighborhood only a couple blocks from Las Olas Boulevard where, in turn, the beach is just a couple more blocks across the bridge.  The beautiful design and stylish updates of the five-bedroom residence make it picture perfect and move-in ready to enjoy the South Florida lifestyle with special features including a new ipe wood dock -- built to meet new elevation requirements -- giving room for the yachter's approximately 54-foot vessel and allowing easy, direct access to the ocean unobstructed by fixed bridges.

Classically inspired elements take on a fresh modern inflection in the airy, clean-lined interiors where an arched entryway transitions into the dramatic two-story living room, an inviting fire-side gathering space that opens its doors to lounge areas around the saltwater pool in the waterfront's resort-like oasis.  En-suite baths serve all of the bedrooms in a layout expressly designed to give family and guests the highest level of privacy, featuring luxurious master quarters in addition to a first-floor guest/in-law suite.  For peace of mind, there is impact-rated glass throughout the house.  While the estate itself features many outstanding attributes, the desirable location in historic Idlewyld adds even more to its appeal.

Location

Poinciana Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Well located just south of Las Olas Boulevard, close to the iconic Atlantic Ocean beachfront, the gated Idlewyld neighborhood offers a true sense of community and features a scenic park and promenade on the Intracoastal Waterway, in addition to lovely tree-lined streets with sidewalks.  The city's finest shopping, dining, and arts attractions are within easy reach, and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient estimated 20-minute commute.

Property

This beautifully updated Modern Mediterranean estate fronts approximately 64 feet on the Rio Idlewyld Canal with a new full-service, ipe dock.  Stately shade trees canopy the gated drive arriving at the front courtyard's gracious loggia and side-entry two-bay garage.  Glass doors open the west side of the house to the night-lit outdoor entertainment space where covered/open terraces surround the heated saltwater pool with spa and extend over the dock at the water's edge.

Residence

Five bedrooms and five and a-half baths are provided in the well-thought-out floor-plan totaling approximately 5,312 square feet, with travertine marble floors in the main living spaces, high ceilings on both levels, and refined moldings throughout.  Amenities include natural gas service, impact-rated windows and exterior doors, and a Sonos surround-sound system.

First Floor:  Right ahead of the foyer, the two-story living room is dramatically elegant with a column-framed gas fireplace across from the sweeping staircase, and opens through a window wall to a covered terrace by the waterfront pool.  In a layout planned for easy entertaining, the living room is open on one side to the dining room, and on the other, to a quartz-topped wet bar which has a Viking wine refrigerator and also serves the family room as well as the pool terrace.  Newly updated with quartz counters and glass tile backsplashes, the chef's kitchen has sleek-lined cabinetry, a Thermador gas range and refrigerator, and other appliances by KitchenAid and Wolf.  Natural light streams into this large open space with a clerestory window in the kitchen, a bay window in the casual dining area, and poolside glass doors in the open family room by the wet bar.  Privately placed, the luxurious guest suite opens to the pool terrace and is newly updated with light-finish engineered wood floors and a designer-style bath with walk-in shower and outdoor access that allows it to double as the cabana bath.

Second Floor:  Atop the staircase, the versatile peak-ceilinged loft space opens to a Juliet balcony above the pool and waterfront, and currently serves as an office.  Double doors enter the luxurious master suite where a Palladian window looks above the pool to the waterfront.  Brazilian hardwood floors add warmth to this beautifully designed retreat featuring two custom-fitted walk-in closets plus a large, light-flooded bath with jetted tub, glass-enclosed shower, and two separate vanities.  Three additional bedrooms are each privately placed, and all have their own baths, one recently renovated with a designer look.  Served by a separate entryway off the staircase, one of these bedrooms would also be perfect for guest quarters, an office, or fitness studio.
