1428 Middle River Dr
Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304

Remarkable 6+/- foot wide glass pivot entry doors at the front and rear of the open living room contrast with muted porcelain tile floors and gray stained poplar ceiling and door casings to dramatically accentuate the sense of light and space so artfully developed by noted interior designer Matthew Quinn. The recipient of numerous national awards, with designs featured in House Beautiful and Architectural Digest to name a few, Matthew has truly outdone himself with the exceptional open living environment he has created for this 4 bedroom, 4.2 bath two-story contemporary residence, comprised of 4,512+/- total square feet including the 2-bay garage.

From the jaw-dropping Sub-Zero, Bosch and Wolf designer kitchen, with its Downsview cabinetry and quartzite counters, separated from the formal dining room by the built-in buffet nook with its wet bar and wine cooler, to the secluded master retreat with barn door entry, luxurious living appears deceptively simple. Yet every detail has been thoughtfully considered, every finish carefully chosen, right down to the designer fixtures and soaking tub in the master ensuite bath and the Zen-quiet arrangement of the pool/spa rear courtyard.



Middle River Drive, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. On the Intracoastal Waterway's western shore, minutes from the beach, the desirable Coral Ridge community is home to the prestigious Coral Ridge Yacht Club and private Coral Ridge Country Club, with its championship Robert Trent Jones 18-hole golf course. Fine dining and shopping are readily available at the nearby Galleria, or a short drive away on famous Las Olas Boulevard. Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is a convenient 20+/- minute drive. 



The circular paver drive, leading to a fenced courtyard entry to this open contemporary design, is defined on either side by islands of lawn, low shrubs and graceful palms trees. A privacy fence surrounds the sides and rear perimeter, ensuring an oasis of tranquility. An open rear courtyard off of the living room features a gas-heated pool and elevated spa served by an outdoor shower and cabana bath. A conversation/lounging area beyond the spa is delineated by its slightly elevated wooden deck. The long covered loggia off the family room includes a built-in gas grill for dining alfresco.



First Floor: Guests enter from front and rear courtyards through remarkable 6+/- foot wide pivoting entry doors that define the dramatic open living room. Those doors are central to window walls of light that contrast artfully with the muted 24" square porcelain floor tiles, gray stained poplar planked vaulted ceiling, and poplar casings that demarcate entries to adjoining rooms. To the right of the living room, an open plan formal dining room, stunning designer kitchen, and expansive family room comprise a separate wing.

The elongated dining room is separated from the kitchen by a built-in buffet nook, with wet bar, sink, lighted counters and wine cooler. It is beautifully served by a chef's kitchen with Downsview cabinetry, quartzite counters, Sub-Zero refrigerator, twin Bosch dishwashers, stainless Wolf 48" gas range with custom hood, two refrigerator drawers, a wine cooler and built-in breakfast bar. The ample family room beyond has sliding doors opening to the covered dining loggia.

To the left of the living room, a hallway with wood staircase, powder room, and laundry room with Electrolux appliances, leads to the secluded master suite. The airy master bedroom features a large custom closet with barn door entry and oversized sliding glass doors opening to the heated pool and spa. Its ensuite bath includes dual sinks, Caesarstone counters, a freestanding designer soaking tub and walk-in glass shower. 

Second Floor: At the top of the staircase, flanked by a second laundry room, is the hallway leading to three stacked bedroom suites, including a junior master suite, all unified by rich wood flooring. Each features a custom closet with built-ins and an ensuite bath with floor-to-ceiling wall tile, Caesarstone counters and designer fixtures. The junior master bath enjoys both a walk-in shower and separate tub, while the other two baths include glass-enclosed showers.

Special features: concrete construction, hurricane impact windows and doors, 6+/- foot wide pivoting glass front entry and pool entry doors, dual laundry rooms, multi-zoned central vacuum, built-in 1st floor sound system, outdoor shower, gas-heated pool with separate spa, built-in grill, 500-gallon in-ground natural gas tank, zoned irrigation system.
