Step inside this historic home and you’ll be greeted by a grand, circular staircase, its handrail embedded with handblown glass by Archimede Seguso — straight from Italy. It’s those elegant details which characterize the work of Victor Nurmi.
Throughout the 1940s, Nurmi was Fort Lauderdale’s pioneer developer and architect. He is the mastermind behind Nurmi Drive, home to Nurmi Isles: waterfront properties which were heralded as the “Venice of America.” And the home at 90 Nurmi Dr. remains one of his ultimate masterpieces.
The 6,254-square-foot home boasts six en-suite bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, a spacious kitchen and a breathtaking interior. Features include Turkish granite, wood floors throughout, a marble fireplace, a private elevator, large walk-in closets in the master bedroom plus a bathroom fit for royalty with a gigantic soaking tub.
Outside, carefully manicured gardens add to the private island feel of Nurmi Drive. The property also includes an outdoor kitchen, three wet bars, an outdoor pool, spa and massive rooftop for entertaining or stargazing.
Boaters in particular will delight in the hundred feet of waterfront access as well as the property’s close proximity to the beach. The home is also nearby the airport, world-class dining, local art galleries, shops and a great school zone.
90 Nurmi Dr, Fort Lauderdale is currently listed for $5.8 million by Chad Bishop and Thomas J.Grant at ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
