This luxury residence is located in Seven Isles, an exclusive neighborhood in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The single-story mid-century modern home boasts four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms as well as spectacular waterfront views with deep water access and boat dock.
About the Client
Brad Parscale, a well-known political advisor and digital media strategist who worked for the previous administration, commissioned Meredith Marlow Interiors to redesign the interior and exterior landscape of his new waterfront home. While people learned a lot about Brad during his 60 Minutes interview, they might not know he’s a very successful real estate investor. Meredith remembers, “Our first meeting was in 2018. The Parscales found our company on the internet. I had no idea who they were until weeks later I saw the announcement on TV regarding his position as campaign manager for the President of the United States.” Where else would you expect an IT guru to find his interior designer, but the internet?
“Our firm was honored to have the Parscales first hire us for their Fort Lauderdale Beach townhome in 2018. We were thrilled when they entrusted us again with not only the entire design process of their next home, but with every facet of the construction and furniture procurement while he was away working in Washington D.C. We’ve become a strong team and really enjoyed collaborating on the design process,” states Meredith.
Interior Key Features
Upon entering the residence, visitors are welcomed in the lounge area with a circular seating area and custom dark walnut bar complete with a Sub Zero wine fridge and Miele coffee maker. Built-in LED lighting reflects off the bronze tinted glass and shelves with black and gold decorative objects. The entire unit was customized to the clients’ desire for a casual yet chic entertaining lounge space. A retro record player sits atop a warm walnut credenza. Bright pops of colorful art on crisp white walls can be seen throughout this semi-open floor plan, creating effortless yet impressive focal points. Limestone floors and dark wood trim ground the space-tying together the entire house. Each space is updated and yet plays homage to the home’s mid-century roots.
The Master Bedroom has a custom dimensional leather and white oak headboard lighted with LEDs. An enormous custom leaning mirror reflects the Master outdoor seating area, fire pit and breathtaking water and sky views. A walled private space off the Master Bathroom has a new garden with artificial grass and hanging white planters which are all lit from below.
Exterior Key Features
In addition to creating a sleek and stylish interior, the client requested that Meredith and her team redesign the backyard to create an inviting experience conducive to entertaining and enjoying the heated pool and waterfront view.
The team extended the pool deck and designed planting areas, creating contrast with white rocks and dark green artificial grass. This landscape design was tailored to the client’s need for plants and turf to add visual appeal with low maintenance.
This South Florida design firm was also in charge of the automation system including exterior lighting and sound system. This fully automated system equipped with Lutron lighting and a Sonos sound system. Lighted stepping stones lead the way to a newly installed wooden deck with a Jacuzzi® and fire pit. The client can access all audio and lighting features remotely, from any location, with just a tap of their phone.
Meredith also designed an upscale custom-lighted polished stainless steel waterfall that stands over 6’ tall. The fountain is situated next to a fully equipped outdoor kitchen covered by a pergola with sunshade.
According to a recent article from Variety magazine , this waterfront property was listed at $3 million. It sold fast, but Meredith Marlow Interiors can make you another one.
