Neil Schneider, MD and his wife Kerstin have listed their highly personalized Fort Lauderdale home for $12,995,000 with Niki Higgins of Douglas Elliman.
The home at 220 North Compass Drive is located in the Bay Colony neighborhood, which came in 32nd in ranking and review site Niche's 2019 Best Neighborhoods to Live in Fort Lauderdale list. The coastal home is about an hour north of Miami and an hour south of West Palm Beach.
The property has over 12,500 square feet of interior space and over 16,000 square feet between its indoor and outdoor areas.
The home has six bedrooms ...
... and 7.5 bathrooms.
The estate was custom-built and boasts extreme privacy — along with expansive waterfront views. It's located on a 250-foot intracoastal waterway and another 111-foot deep water canal.
Of course, the property has a pool overlooking the water — complete with three pool heaters.
Aside from the pool, the home also features a number of over-the-top amenities.
Most notably, there's a state-of-the-art, fully functioning stock trading room. It has 10 monitors, a news ticker, and two separate internet providers hooked up. "If one [internet] carrier goes down, it automatically switches to another so you don’t miss productivity," the former owner tells the New York Post. Schneider is a nephrologist who began trading very seriously, for six hours a day, after retiring.
On a more leisurely note, the property also has its own movie theater.
The massive chef's kitchen can accommodate as many as four chefs working simultaneously.
Oenophiles will also love the sizable wine cellar — it has room to store over 1,000 bottles.
The library features a built-in closet humidor for storing cigars.
The owners are also throwing in their stretch limousine, included in the home's selling price.
The home is coming nearly fully furnished, with almost all the artwork pictured — minus a select few "personal" pieces that the Schneiders are taking with them to their West Palm Beach condo.
