    Definitely one of Ft. Lauderdale’s more plainer homes. Overpriced by a good $2.5-3 million as well. Not a fan of the home, as it looks like a remodel, not a brand new home. Too much white on the inside and the exterior faux finishing…is that pink? Also a little too much with the checkerboard floors, especially in the kitchen. Can do much better for the price.

    I don’t see French provincial at all in this house. Maybe that little dome thing is what the architect had in mind to make it French. I agree with Daniel that it’s rather plain, especially compared to some of the other houses in the area. I’m not overly fond of the Harbor Beach area to begin with. It’s an area of plain houses from the 60’s and 70’s that have been either redone or rebuilt. In general the lots are too small for the big houses that are put on them.

    Some of the details of the interior are nice but overall the interior seems very heavy to me, especially for a house in a tropical location. I’ve defended black/white checker floors on this site before, but this one is out of control. There is just way too much of it; a good decorator knows when to stop, and this house clearly didn’t have a good decorator. I agree on the price; it’s too high. It’s also interesting that the house is listed as 14,462 square feet but the small print says that it’s really 9,816 square feet. Obviously the agent is including outdoor spaces in that first square footage.

      Ha! We *almost* have the same opinion. I personally think Harbor Beach is one of Lauderdale’s best neighborhoods. I like the streets off Las Olas but I think they are worse with “plain houses from the 60′s and 70′s that have been either redone or rebuilt.” And it’s gated as well, isn’t it? Somewhat of a rarity in that part of Lauderdale. One of my favorite homes in Lauderdale is on Isla Bahia Drive: http://homesite.obeo.com/viewer/default.aspx?tourid=618965&refURL=Realtor.com&locale=en-US

      2nd favorite is the former Huizenga residence (http://www.drumrealty.com/hjr.html). I love Rio Vista and the lush foliage it has.

        Hmmm, I type a typically wordy reply to your message but it disappeared. I guess I’ve reached my quota on the number of words I can post!

        Harbor Beach is indeed gated, but I still prefer Las Olas. Sadly the same thing is happening there as has happened in Harbor Beach; overly large houses are being put onto too-small lots. I used to live in Rio Vista and loved it. Idlewyld is a great area, across from Bahia Mar, but only a few houses are waterfront.

        Wayne Huizenga’s house is a great house. I used to love his last house in Las Olas. I went by it all the time on my boat and loved his “Hello” lighted sign he had out by the seawall.

            Lol! I assumed not, but I can be pretty wordy! I’m not sure what happened to it, but no big deal. The internets can be full of mystery at times.
