With deep waters ideal for yachting and diving, along with the close proximity to two airports, finding a genuine peninsula in the exclusive area of Fort Lauderdale is extremely unusual.
The figurehead estate of 529 Bontona Ave is an excellent opportunity for yacht owners with large or multiple vessels to enjoy unrivaled privacy and immediate access to the most scenic and valuable corridor of New River.
With waters lapping at the end of the garden, the property benefits from a private island feel and has plenty of options for expansion if desired. And South Florida’s tropical climate provides opportunity for different types of activity and entertainment all year round.
Managed by luxury Real Estate agency Douglas Elliman in Fort Lauderdale, 529 Bontona Ave is an ideal choice for the avid boater.
A Property Enjoying Private Dock Access and Italian Design
Alongside the bonus of living on one of the only true peninsula properties on the privacy-rich Bontana Ave, 529 Bontona Ave also benefits from a private dock and extensive outdoor space.
Having always been owned by a prominent Floridian family, this walled and gated estate boasts a lush park-like setting, luxuriating in the serenity and security of the scenic location. With unrivaled views on three sides, occupants can take in the daily boat parade, high elevation, outside pool, and terraced grounds.
Hosting in the summer months is accommodated via a summer kitchen, an eight-bay garage, and large covered entertainment spaces for gatherings or celebrations.
Inside, this 6-bed, 9,5-bath single family home comes fully furnished with Italian design interiors by Katia Bates at Innovative Creations. The calm neutrals and peppered dark-wood feature further the Italian feel, with leather furnishings only increasing the home’s luxurious atmosphere
“Most buyers are now looking for transitional or classic contemporary styles that are sophisticated and timeless,” Katia Bates commented. “They want classic interior design and architecture with a contemporary style. And they want more unique and exclusive features, such as custom furniture, wallcoverings on canvas, and boiserie/wood paneling designed especially for them.”
High-arching hurricane-impact windows on the lower level provide idyllic views of the New River, and a large half-moon feature window on the upper level gives an ideal vantage point over the waters. Alongside this, the property features expansive rooms, custom finishes, a flexible floor plan, and a huge primary wing.
A Location for Business and Pleasure
Sitting in the exclusive neighborhood of Las Olas Isles in Fort Lauderdale, 529 Bontona Ave is less than a twenty-minute drive from both Hollywood International Airport and Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport.
The property gives immediate access to Port Everglades and the Bahamian isles and is 25 miles from Miami and only 40 miles south of Palm Beach.
Fort Lauderdale is simultaneously a major business hub and a top resort destination and has the amenities to match.
There is no shortage of Michelin-star eateries, including Laurent Tourondel’s DUNE, fresh seafood at Kaluz Restaurant, and much more. The Broward Centre for the Performing Arts is a constantly revolving banquet of cultural performances for those with a palette for the arts.
Alongside this, there are seasonal exhibitions, such as Art Fort Lauderdale’s Art & Design week, with museum exhibitions, artist studio tours, and more.
Given the nickname “The Venice of America”, it’s unsurprising that water is never far away; Fort Lauderdale has seven miles of white sand beaches and an extensive network of canals and waterways navigable via water taxi or pleasure craft.
Renowned for being a major yachting destination, boat enthusiasts travel from far and wide to visit Fort Lauderdale’s International Boat Show.
