Located within one of Fort Lauderdale’s leading neighborhoods, Sunrise Intracoastal, this classic Bermuda-style home at 520 Intracoastal Dr. exudes genuine South Florida style with simple elegance, tranquility and captivating water views.

Priced at $6,250,000, the two-story, six-bedroom estate, on more than 1.25 acres, boasts 366 feet of deep waterfront, all of which can be admired through bay windows. Past a private gate, lush foliage centers a circular driveway and sets the hospitable precedent for the home, highlighted by mango hues and crisp white accents.

Inside, luxurious flooring spans 11,800-square-feet of living space, inclusive of eight full baths and three half baths. The home’s sophistication is further illustrated through the unique details of its formal foyer, library and Bermuda-style game room. Additional offerings include spacious bedrooms with walk-in closets, finely finished countertops and a Roman-style tub.

The home was constructed in 1956 and the current owner has been meticulous in preserving its timeless style. Each addition to the estate has been characteristic of its original architecture and design, including a new master-suite wing, family room, heated pool, tennis court and cabana. Notable outdoor amenities, such as an entertainment area and summer kitchen, a resort-style patio, brightly colored landscaping and a Koi pond, accentuate the home’s tranquil ambiance. From the confines of a prime location where a balance of city and beach life can be enjoyed, the property also features a four-car garage and boat dockage.
