The South Tower penthouse at Auberge Beach Residences & Spa, Fort Lauderdale, recently sold at a record-breaking price of $8.9 million, making it the most expensive residence ever sold in the Fort Lauderdale area. After entering through a main lobby equipped with expansive windows and modern decor, residents take a private elevator to the plush penthouse.
Spread across 5,800 square feet of indoor space, the four-bedroom, six-bathroom residence is an ultramodern, airy abode. The penthouse’s open-concept living room is marked by a white spiraling staircase, a muted color palate, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the ocean. A private sun room offers 270-degree panoramic views of the beach, while the bedrooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows with bird’s-eye views of the beach. Outside, a 3,970-square-foot terrace is equipped with a private plunge pool and plenty of seating. Residents will have access to on-site amenities including a wine cellar, a theater, an indoor golf simulator, a spa, a club room, and a cigar room.
While the South Tower penthouse is no longer on the market, potential buyers may want to consider the equally sumptuous North Tower penthouse. The two-level getaway, equipped with five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, is spread out over 5,800 square feet and shares its counterpart’s penchant for floor-to-ceiling windows. The modern kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, dark-brown oak cabinets, and white marble. Outside, a private rooftop terrace (3,800 square feet) features a hot tub, a covered dining table, and plush couches. When sold, the penthouse is likely to surpass South Tower’s record, as the unit is currently listed for $9.8 million. (aubergebeach.com)
