North Ocean Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The ultimate in 5-star resort-style living, L’Hermitage is a spectacular oceanfront landmark distinguished by twin towers soaring over 650 feet of white-sand beachfront, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, and city skyline. Amenities of this premier address are second to none, featuring private beach cabanas plus a magnificently landscaped oceanfront club with 2 lagoon-style pools, whirlpool spa, and poolside cafe. Added luxuries include Har-Tru tennis courts, a beautiful dog walk, fitness center/spa, business center, card/billiard rooms, and party room, plus concierge service, valet parking, and a 24-hour manned gatehouse. World-renowned Las Olas Boulevard is minutes away.

Luxury and splendor reach their pinnacle in this crown jewel penthouse, one of the finest residences of L’Hermitage. Glass walls envelop every major room of this 5,100 +/- square-foot estate-in-the-sky with the azure ocean’s sublime majesty, while dramatic balconies capitalize on direct east-facing perspectives towering above the beach. Custom hand-painted embellishments and hand-carved woodwork make each room of this 4-bedroom, 5 full 1 half bath showplace a unique work of art. Pecky cypress coffered ceilings, Venetian plaster walls, Saturnia marble floors, and fine built-ins enhance the decor.

Stepping into the private elevator lobby presents an exquisite hand-painted composition with antique stone medallion, stained glass, and hand-carved woodwork. Stunning ocean views fill the living room – dramatized by a Jerusalem limestone fireplace – flowing onto a wraparound balcony. Elaborate ceiling treatments and a verdigris-finish Venetian chandelier refine the dining room. The epicurean’s kitchen includes furniture-grade maple cabinetry, a Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, and butler’s pantry. Wrapped by the oceanfront balcony, the master suite lends sumptuous elegance with an Egyptian onyx fireplace, beautiful built-ins, and upholstered walls. Two walk-in closets accompany his-and-her marble-and-granite baths with walk-through steam shower and artist Lia Malakatio’s hand-painted murals depicting Jamaica’s Long Bay Beach; her bath offers a rejuvenating oasis with whirlpool tub. The private guest suite opens to another oceanfront balcony, as do 2 enchanting marine-themed bedrooms sharing a bath. A powder room and office complete this one-of-a-kind penthouse.
