A mere 5 miles north of Hollywood, Hollywood Lakes and 6 miles from Hallandale (Golden Isles) & Golden Beach, lies the highest priced recently sold property in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County). Fetching $15.5 million, this 16,000 square foot waterfront mansion on Harbor Beach was supposedly purchased by a European buyer one publication called a “Bill Gates type” individual.
1 Isla Bahia Masterpiece
Spotted while the buyer was cruising around South Florida real estate, this Fort Lauderdale Italian palazzo-style masterpiece makes a bold statement covering 360 feet of Atlantic oceanfront. Offering a hand-painted doomed ceiling in the entrance, and hand-carved marble colonnades, this elegant work of art is complimented by six bedrooms, eight full baths, three half-baths and library. Designed by local architect Tom Benedict, this three year old completely furnished estate was originally listed for $23 million.
Major Upgrade from Your Temporary Diggs!
Many international and domestic visitors live part-time in South Florida. In the case of the buyer of the 1 Isla Bahia estate, this person was said to be living part-time in the Fort Lauderdale St. Regis Hotel. If you are finding you are spending more of your time in the Golden Beach, Hallandale, Aventura or the greater Hollywood area and you’re ready to purchase a second home here, now might be the most opportune time for you to make a South Florida real estate purchase.
