An award-winning Fort Lauderdale estate named Bella Fortuna is on the market asking $39 million (and $2,248 per square foot), making it tied with another Fort Lauderdale mansion for the honor of being the most expensive home for sale in Broward County.
The 17,352-square-foot home boasts 750 feet of water frontage and spans 27 rooms, including a secret panic room, according to listing agent Katrina Campins of Katrina Campins Group.
The property used to belong to the Huizenga family before architect Jeffrey W. Smith of Smith Architectural Group designed a towering new mansion in 2015 after it sold in 2010 for $7.64 million.
