What can you get for $1 million in Fort Lauderdale?

This story is part of an ongoing series looking at homes priced at $1 million in different neighborhoods in South Florida.

For buyers looking for a taste of the quintessential South Florida lifestyle, Fort Lauderdale is one of the best options.

The city, also known as the Venice of America, offers close proximity to sunny beaches, a bustling downtown with bars and outdoor eating, and waterfront homes along a labyrinth of canals.

“We have the beaches, boating, and entertainment with great restaurants. We have a more laid-back vibe than Miami,” said Matt Rosenbaum, president and real estate broker with RightStreet Realty. “Over the last couple of years we’ve seen an increase in people looking for second homes and vacation homes.”

Here’s a sample of the type of homes a buyer can land in Fort Lauderdale for around $1 million.

For buyers wanting waterfront views and a short walk to the beach, a condo for sale about a mile from the Fort Lauderdale beach is a prime example.

The 1,838 sq. foot condo, priced at $1,195,000, is on the fourth floor of the 10-floor boutique La Rive condominium. The building, which has only 36 units, was built in 2004 and sits on the Intracoastal Waterway at 1715 Bayshore Drive.

The unit, which faces south, has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a terrace that offers a view of the intracoastal. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and the unit comes with updated appliances and a washer and dryer. There’s been some updates to the condo, with the owners restoring the bamboo floors in the unit and painting the condo, according to agent Shakara Rosenbaum with Right Street.

The building has 24-hour security, and amenities including a bar room and a heated pool and a gym. There’s a monthly HOA fee of $1,563.

Victoria Park, a mix of singe-family homes, townhomes and duplexes, offers a central location to most of Fort Lauderdale for buyers looking to raise their families in a quiet neighborhood, or for young professionals wanting access to downtown life.

A 2,456 sqft, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath townhome at 726 NE 15th Ave in the Victoria Park neighborhood is currently for sale for $1,100,000. The three-story townhome was built in 2007, has a small renovated pool and all new appliances.

The master bedroom on the second floor has its own balcony and the third story has its own living room and a 600-square-foot patio for grilling and entertaining.

The townhome is also close to Holiday Park, one of Fort Lauderdale’s larger parks, offering playgrounds, playing fields, a basketball court and a dog park. It’s also located only a few miles from the restaurants, bars and a nightlife of Las Olas.
