Outstanding Opportunity…

Posted by fortlauderdalebeachrealestate on February 11, 2010

I saw this condo yesterday at a brokers open with friends, and WOW.  The “Four Seasons” is my favorite building in the entire city of Fort Lauderdale.  Located on Sunset Drive just off Las Olas and just west of the Intracoastal Waterway.  This is a fully restored Mid-Century building with 24/7 doorman service, covered parking and available dockage with ocean access/no fixed bridges.  Any size pets welcome.   This was just relisted as an approved short sale for $385,000-this is the previous listing, disregard the list price.   3 bedroom, 3 bath home sized condo at 2400+ square foot.  Enjoy views of Sunset Lake, Ocean and Intracoastal.  Near 9′ ceilings add drama to already huge spaces, eat-in sized kitchen plus den/family room and Florida room.  A/C, cable and hot water are included in your monthly maintenance.
