A newly constructed beachfront house in Fort Lauderdale just traded for $8.5 million, property records show.
The 2,050-square-foot home at 2930 North Atlantic Boulevard sold for about $4,150 per square foot. The buyers, Marie-Louise Skafte, founder of Skafte Global Law, P.A. and husband Roger L. Martin, were listed as trustees of living trusts in their own names.
Records show 2930 Partners LLC, led by Kenneth Fisher, paid $2.75 million for the 9,200-square-foot lot in 2012. He secured a $2.65 million construction loan in 2014, which was paid off with the recent sale.
The property hit the market in 2015 with Florida Luxurious Properties’ Julie Jones-Bernard for $7.9 million – meaning it sold for more than its original asking price. When construction was nearly complete the home was re-listed with Keller Williams Realty’s Elizabeth Lender for the same $7.9 million price, according to Redfin. Lender was not immediately available to comment.
The three-bedroom home features wood floors, marble countertops, a pool and floor-to-ceiling windows with ocean views. Nearby, a 18,272-square-foot lot sold for $7.2 million in 2016.
