Indy 500 Champ Helio Castroneves Selling Sleek Fort Lauderdale Home
With three Indianapolis 500 victories and a "Dancing With the Stars" trophy on his mantel, race car driver Helio Castroneves is used to winning. However, when he listed his waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale, FL, in 2017, he didn't head to the winner's circle.
The home was eventually pulled from the market, but recently resurfaced with a new asking price, after taking a pit stop. The 4,800-square-foot home is currently listed for $2.69 million—a $200,000 reduction on its 2017 listing price.
The house boasts sleek, clean lines and a modern design, thanks to an extensive makeover.
It’s now hurricane-ready, with impact-quality windows and doors—a necessity on the South Florida waterfront. The home has five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, providing ample space for guests.
There are also two offices and an abundance of living space under vaulted ceilings. The interior includes glassy marble floors in the living spaces and top-quality quartz countertops in the kitchens.
Large windows in every room make great use of the natural sunlight the area is known for.
The master wing is worthy of the checkered flag, with a closet of unfathomable proportions. Seriously, this thing is massive. There’s also a spa-style bathroom, with a window-front seating area and large steam shower.
The home’s exterior living space is the perfect spot to entertain and a perfect example of sumptuous Florida living.
There's a sparkling blue saltwater pool, gazebo-covered seating area, and of course, water views. The canal that the property is located on leads right out to the ocean, for unobstructed fun on the seas.
Castroneves hopes this second lap on the market will result in a speedy win. By the looks of this place, whoever comes to the table with an offer is in for a little taste of victory.
