Project Description

Gulf Building completed Timeless on Ponce, a two-story custom estate, in the exclusive Fort Lauderdale neighborhood of Rio Vista. Timeless on Ponce successfully blends transitional architectural design with a modern interior creating a balanced atmosphere of elegance and comfort. This unique estate consists of four bedrooms, five full baths, one half bath, an office, a wine room, play room, custom pool and spa, and a two-car garage for a total of 8,000 SF of luxury living.

A beautiful custom finished black entry door with polished brass hardware welcomes you into a classic foyer with honed limestone checkboard flooring. Inside, a soaring ceiling with a brass chandelier and decorative wall paneling symbolize the timeless elegance of European manors.  A formal living room adjacent to the foyer showcases a custom fireplace with a dramatically veined Grafite marble surround and is flanked on either side with glass shelving and custom cabinetry with brass accents. This picture perfect wall is rounded out by an abstract painting and family portraits highlighted by three brass picture lights.

The formal dining room space is shared with a custom bar featuring glass doors and a mirrored backsplash. An ornate glass chandelier hangs over a large dark wood dining table with elegant button-tufted dining chairs. White oak wood flooring throughout brings visual warmth to the house.

In the Kitchen, dark blue cabinetry with gold hardware and fixtures are centered on a custom brass lined hood and a unique “X” beam ceiling. White backsplashes with gold accents and double white islands offer plenty of space for seating, prep and storage while also providing a pleasing contrast to the darker perimeter cabinetry. A breakfast nook with bench seating and a butcher block countertop overlooks the backyard and pool area with large windows. A walk-in wine room, a ship-lap walled powder room and a large family room complete the ground floor spaces. Large sliding glass doors in the family room provide easy access to the backyard while also providing plenty of natural light.  

Beautiful wood stairs with ornate metal railings lead you to the private spaces of the upper floor. Windows and Art pieces add natural light and interest at the staircase landing. The second floor features a large master bedroom suite with a private balcony overlooking the pool area, his and hers private master bathrooms and closets, two kids’ rooms, a guest bedroom suite, and an office suite with a separate balcony. A partially hidden staircase leads to a delightful surprise – a children’s playroom tucked away in the attic!

Outside, a covered summer kitchen and covered patios alongside the manicured backyard and pool area allow for year round family get-togethers and entertaining. Lush tropical landscaping paired with white Chippendale railings, decorative columns, exterior trim, shed roofs and black roof accents provide a black and white palette that makes the house looks crisp and tailored at all times. All in all, this home has a timeless aesthetic.
