Iconic "Little Florida" Estate Closes for $2.05 Million

Coldwell Banker Closes Deal on Notable Luxury Property

​​​​​​​FT. LAUDERDALE, FL (March 8, 2018) – A beautiful estate, known as “Little Florida”, has just sold for $2,050,000. Tim Elmes, an affiliated sales associate with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, represented both the property seller and the buyer in the closing. The exemplary two-story property, located at 900 SW 5 Pl., offers 653 feet of water frontage along the New River. Known as “Little Florida” for its Florida-shaped peninsula, the estate’s prolific garden and many palm trees provide the home with plenty of privacy. 

Although the 1937 historic estate was renovated in 1996, the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home has kept a vintage appeal due to its unique architectural features. The property features a deeded private dock with easy ocean access, an oversized loggia and a pool deck. Through the French doors of the master suite and the private study is a wrap-around terrace with magnificent water views.

Additional and custom features include:

  • Sunroom
  • Fireplace
  • Tropical pool with a waterfall
  • Mexican tile and wooden floors


“The home’s classic style and the relaxing atmosphere really make this estate a tropical paradise. It’s the perfect setting for hosting stylish gatherings or simply enjoying the spectacular views.”
—Tim Elmes
