Lauderdale Harbors is a quiet residential neighborhood in the southeast portion of Fort Lauderdale. Located east of US1 and between Rio Vista to the north and the 17th Street Causeway to the south, its prime waterfront location allows residents quick access to the ocean both by land or by sea. The only bridge between Lauderdale Harbors and the open water is the 17th Street Causeway, which is a soaring 55 feet high when closed.
While its waterfront properties with no fixed bridges are considered highly sought-after real estate, Lauderdale Harbors’ seclusion is also another perk for its residents. The neighborhood is set away from all major roads; with Cordova Road acting as the main thoroughfare in and through the area. Most of the roads in Lauderdale Harbors see little traffic aside from that of its residents.
There are some magnificent homes in Lauderdale Harbors that line the Intracoastal. In addition, there is a small portion of the neighborhood on the west side of Cordova Road known as Cliff Lake. The Cliff Lake section is relatively small and is lined mainly by the thin lake of the same name that looks more like a canal, running along its western edge. There are a variety of trees in this area that help create a beautiful canopy and give the section a very secluded feel.
Though the neighborhood is made up of mostly single family homes, there are a few developments of condos and townhomes. One such newer, upscale development – which can be found in the heart of the neighborhood at the corner of Cordova and SE 12th Street – is known as Hemmingway Landings. This beautiful upscale development is a great alternative for those who seek to be on deepwater without having to maintain a stand alone home. At the east end of SE 12th Street is the historic Lauderdale Yacht Club, an established member-owned and family-focused private club in operation since 1938. Nestled between the quiet Lauderdale Harbors and the Intracoastal, it is a Club rich in tradition, with exceptional facilities and service, adding to the allure of this neighborhood as an ideal destination for boaters.
Lauderdale Harbors is also within walking distance to many shops and restaurants; most notably the Harbor Shops located at the southern end of Cordova Road on the 17th Street Causeway. Currently, homes in this neighborhood range in price from $525,000 to just over $6 million.
