1460 S. Ocean Boulevard, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, FL 33062 – Oceanfront Penthouse

Matt Bobby, P.A.


The market may be flooded with properties for sale, but there aren’t any like this one. Just a mile or two up the road from Fort Lauderdale is a brand new luxury condominium building called Europa-by-the-Sea. It’s located on the beach, right off of US 1. The property that I’ve listed for sale is known as “The Marbella Penthouse.” This penthouse is perfect for anyone who loves the Fort Lauderdale area but really wants space, views and privacy. Space – because it’s the entire eastern half of the top floor with a total of 8,624 square feet, including balconies and terraces. Views – because almost every room has a direct ocean view. The living room is furthest east in the unit and has a wrap-around balcony that is surrounded by the ocean. Even the one bedroom suite with western views has a huge terrace with beautiful views of the Intracoastal, which is especially picturesque at sunset. Private – because there are only 50 units in the entire building.

Europa was completed in December of 2006. The people that work there are the best. The front desk person, Rollin, has remembered my name since the first day I set foot on the property. I don’t know of a building that is better managed. It has 15 floors and all the amenities you could ask for including an oceanfront heated pool, whirlpool spa, state-of-the-art fitness center with his and hers locker rooms, a media area, library, conference room, closed-circuit television surveillance, 24 concierge service / lobby attendant and valet parking. Unlike some of the newer buildings that give you the feeling of being in a night club or disco, the lobby and common area rooms all have an elegant, relaxed “country club” feel to them.

The owners purchased the penthouse pre-construction in 2004 and intended to live in it. They paid $3,650,900 plus builder’s fees and closing costs and now have it listed at $4,495,000. They have children and loved the fact that it’s just five miles from Pine Crest School. Pine Crest School is pre-k through 12th grade and continually ranked in the top tier of the best private schools in the state. They have since decided to stay in the Miami area as their friends and work continue to keep them there.

The penthouse is configured with three bedrooms and four and one-half baths. All three bedrooms have their own private bath, terrace or balcony and walk-in closet. There’s also a game room that could easily be a fourth bedroom since it also has a private bath and walk-in closet. The only thing missing that precludes me from listing it as a fourth bedroom is a door, and that can be resolved easily enough. In addition there’s also a formal dining room, living room with a gas fireplace and family room. The master bedroom also has an adjacent 15 foot by 25 foot room that could be used as a library, den, office or whatever. There are two enormous walk-in closets in the master and a master bath with his and hers water closets (hers with bidet), two showers, two sink/vanity areas and one large whirlpool tub, all finished with creme marble floors and counter tops.

Other rooms include a 12 foot x 19 foot foyer with private elevator entrance, media room, laundry room, an extra room off of one of the bedrooms that makes this particular bedoom ideal for an in-law or teen suite, and a kitchen. The kitchen is truly awesome with double Sub-Zero and Miele appliances, a natural gas cooktop island, Italian hardwood cabinetry, Santa Cecilia granite counter tops, eat-in space and flawless ocean views. I remember showing the penthouse to a couple and when we entered the kitchen, the wife said “honey, if you bought this place, I’d even start to cook!” Other features include 11 foot ceilings, marble and granite finishes everywhere, a smart-technology touch screen panel for concierge, fire, medical, security, etc., two secure covered parking spaces, and a 17 foot by 20 foot air-conditioned storage room.

The penthouse, like all of the other units here were delivered “designer-ready.” This means that it’s entirely up to the new owner to finish the unit as they please. With the exception of the kitchen and baths, the floors are concrete and the walls are primed. The floor plan is flexible where some walls will probably be removed to open up more space for entertaining and also take advantage of the amazing ocean views.

This will definitely be a fun project for the next owners. With the help of a good interior designer, this place could easily become Architectural Digest material.
