Prime Point Lot Estate Recently Sold by Drum Realty in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Posted by James Fletcher

In January, 2011, Kelly Drum of Drum Realty in Fort Lauderdale, sold the Nurmi estate, a point lot residence located near historic New River and the Intracoastal Waterway in the exclusive Las Olas Isles section of the city.

With a listing price of $9,190,000, the Nurmi estate is prized especially for its exceptional position on one of the most desirable points of land in South Florida. Commanding vistas are enjoyed throughout the property, with ample dockage for a megayacht present as well, making this the ideal residence for the yachtsman seeking direct access to the world-famous inland waterways of Fort Lauderdale and the Atlantic Ocean nearby. A large landscaped open space beside the residence creates a full-lot of privacy between the home and its direct neighbors. This lot was available for purchase separately, but was included in the final sale.

Drum Realty specializes in discovering such stellar locations and marketing them internationally to discriminating buyers seeking out the world’s greatest homes and luxury properties. This reputation for presenting the finest waterfront real estate has followed the firm for over fifty years.

Overlooking peaceful Rio Barcelona from the banks of Nurmi Isle in Fort Lauderdale's famed and very exclusive Las Olas neighborhood, this property provides an amazing 300+ ft of dockage, enough for two large vessels. Just three isles east is found the apex where the Intracoastal Waterway meets Middle River, a perfect vantage point from which to launch a yachting cruise of Fort Lauderdale, the "Venice of America." The home is something to behold. Such special touches as imported marble floors, inlaid by artisans, reflecting massive deep wood columns impact the foyer, while the living areas are reminiscent of a European castle. Richly detailed coffered ceilings gleam with tastefully placed filigreed accents. There is a large home theater and four-car garage to name but two of the numerous other features.
