A 15,930-square-foot mansion in Fort Lauderdale just hit the market priced at $40 million, which would set a record in Broward County.
Located at 615 Lido Drive in Las Olas Isles, it's the most expensive home for sale in Fort Lauderdale but not for Broward, with the $159-million behemoth at 935 Hillsboro Drive still lurking.
This six-bedroom, 12-bathroom Mediterranean revival estate sits on the end of a private cul-de-sac on a 56,400-square-foot waterfront point lot. It includes a two-story guest house, six-car garage, FIVE fireplaces, library with hand-carved wooden accents, elevator, massage room, fitness center, theater, and a "yacht captain's chart room."
One of the mansion's more prominent features is its hand-made clay barrel roof, comprised of 100-year-old tiles imported from Italy. It was architecturally designed by Robert A.M. Stern with interiors by Perlmutter-Freiwald.
"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."
The property last sold for 7.4 million in 2005 and the current home built last year. Broward's current record-holder is 5 Harborage Isle, which sold for $27.5 million in December with DND Associates also representing both the seller and buyer.
