Welcome to The Sheppard Estate, one of Fort Lauderdale's greatest landmark residences. This George Fink masterpiece is recognized as a hallmark of Mediterranean Revival architecture. Built in 1926 and commissioned by William Snyder, this grand estate boasts an elegant three-story tower and represents a rare offering with architectural provenance. Brilliantly staged behind private gates, this expansive property is sited on famed Las Olas Boulevard. Minutes away from Fort Lauderdale's finest restaurants, boutiques, art galleries, beaches and famed ''Venice of America'' yachting destinations, the property features an ideal location. Thoughtful and meticulous renovations include both the primary residence, guest house and the outdoor serene environment. The newly restored fa+ºade, roof, tower, A/C's, electrical system, exterior painting, and landscaping were recently completed, reviving this 7,409 square foot historical estate to its glory. Old world Mediterranean revival charm is seen throughout the property with prominent arched openings and windows separated by decorative turned mullions, columns, balconies, and a central tower with an open belfry. The central tower acts as a rooftop terrace providing the ultimate entertaining experience, adding to the outdoor allure of the property. The serene grounds include an elegant saltwater pool and spa, beautifully landscaped courtyard and patio areas that feature two bespoke limestone fountains, relocated from Palm Beach. The 1,375 square-foot guest house offers 2 guest suites with a bath and a powder room. The main residence of The Sheppard Estate features a dramatic foyer, grand great room with a masterfully crafted fireplace and an awe-inspiring dining room with carved wood ceilings from a Venetian Palazzo. The expansive living area also includes a Florida room, library, kitchen, game room, elevator and a two-car garage. With a total of 7 well-appointed bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms and 2 powder rooms, the historic property also features a lower level 720 square-foot basement that can be utilized as a storage area or a wine cellar. Two access points to the property include private gates both from Las Olas and from SE 17th Avenue. This crown jewel estate envisioned and created in 1926 - ahead of its time, is now fully available in one of America's most iconic landmarked destinations.
