Northeast Buyers Coming To South Florida: New Choice In Home!

As the migration trend from the Northeast to Florida continues, many families are discovering the stark differences in residential offerings between their former homes and their new locale. In the suburban Northeast and NYC Metro areas, large lots with cozy multi-story homes are common. However, upon moving to South Florida, these families often face a surprising scarcity of homes on similarly sized properties. Currently, in Broward County, homes with 2 to 4 acres represent less than one percent of all single-family homes on the market.


Despite this scarcity, there are niches within the South Florida real estate landscape that cater to this specific need. Two towns in West Fort Lauderdale have become particularly attractive to these families, offering larger lots that provide a new choice in South Florida living. These areas are drawing northerners who are unwilling to compromise on the spacious outdoor living they are accustomed to, blending the warm Florida climate with the expansive property sizes they prefer.


One standout property that epitomizes this blend is "The Lady of the Lake" estate. Recently listed, this home sits on more than 2.1 acres and offers a multi-level, gated retreat complete with three fireplaces. This residence stands as a beacon for those seeking the quintessential expansive South Florida estate. It combines privacy, luxury, and an array of amenities that cater to an active and opulent lifestyle.

The architectural and design elements of "The Lady of the Lake" include Nantucket-style cedar shingles, Chicago brick, and English Ivy, which wrap the home in a distinctly American aesthetic rich with heritage. Gas lanterns and statuesque trees contribute to the estate’s stately presence. 


Inside, the home spans 6,291 square feet with five bedrooms and four bathrooms, featuring vaulted ceilings, a striking staircase with an overhead balcony, hardwood floors, and tasteful Restoration Hardware accents throughout.


Outside, the estate continues to impress with its extensive grounds that include a gazebo, benches, fruit trees, a swimming pool and patio area designed as an outdoor living room, and even equestrian facilities like stables, a tack room, and paddocks. This is complemented by miles of riding trails, making it an ideal choice for families with pets and horses. 


Additionally, the property’s location remains a significant draw, being close to top-rated schools, major sporting venues, shopping outlets, and entertainment complexes, with easy access to Miami, the Keys, and Palm Beach/Wellington. "The Lady of the Lake" is not just a home; it’s a comprehensive lifestyle choice for those moving from the Northeast seeking to retain their spacious living standards while embracing the Floridian way of life.
