Florida is a peninsula located in the American south-east, and its home to a very large population that loves to fish. Due to the plentiful water access, many people on the peninsula have made fishing a way of life. The Fort Lauderdale area is home to an elite society, with large, extravagant homes that offer beautiful views and ocean access. The architecture is somewhat new but still very traditional. The homes have an aura of a castle, and are so large that you can truly get lost inside.
Each little projection of land into the ocean contains hundreds of Fort Lauderdale homes, each having a back facing the water and a front facing the road. This design provides easy water access along with convenient access to roads for normal use, or in cases of emergency. The houses are built by some of the most professional and elite architects from around the world and have a very Spanish-touch to them, which probably originated in South America and traveled north as the Europeans migrated further.
Many of the homes are also built in a colonial-style which is reminiscent of the original thirteen settled colonies of America. These houses have a larger than average, beautiful porch decorated with multiple long standing pillars along the front. The architectural design on the insides of these houses isn’t as intricate compared to those of the Spanish models, but they definitely have the original American feel. The Mediterranean-style houses are a signature look for many of the homes in the Fort Lauderdale area. Buying a home with any of the above-mentioned styles can really be quite the catch in this area. Many of the homes also have large pools and saunas to match. A single house on this strip resembles the perfect oasis or resort that most people would die for. The view, the comfort, and the relaxation that is available in these large homes just cannot be found anywhere else! The deep blue ocean acts as a sea of opportunities and can help to open your mind to so many new things.
All of these houses are adorned with large gazebos and outdoor grills so that everyone can truly enjoy the many sights these houses have to offer. They are coupled with large docks for a single large yacht or many smaller boats. Most of the buyers of these houses love to fish and spend time in the sea. The designing of these houses, with large windows situated all along the sides overlooking the ocean make the inside experience just as eventful and breathtaking as the outdoor.
