The Seven Isles community is located in the beautiful city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida within walking distance of Las Olas Beach. These luxurious waterfront estate homes are positioned directly on the Intracoastal waterway and offer deep water lots with no fixed bridges to the ocean. Seven Isles is just what the name implies – seven islands. Seven Isles is home to 315 waterfront residences and intracoastal waterways. There are nine streets within the Seven Isles: Aqua Vista Boulevard, Barcelona Drive, Castilla Isle, Del Mar Place, De Sota Drive, De Sota Terrace, Pelican Isle, Sea Island Drive and Seven Isles Drive.
The original plats for the development subdivided the 80 acres (320,000 m2) into 50-foot (15 m) lots. Between 1928 and 1937, the lots were re-platted and consolidated into acreage. Between 1937 and 1952, the land was again re-platted and the acreage converted back into individual lots. These lots encompassed a variety of widths: most in excess of 75 feet (23 m), many over 100 feet (30 m). With the exception of one, all the original 50-foot (15 m) lots were either re-platted into bigger lots, or through land sales, were merged with adjacent lots.
Seven Isles Drive was originally called Southeast 23rd from East Las Olas Boulevard to Pelican Drive where, at that point – for the city’s demarcation for areas N.E. and S.E. Broward Boulevard – it became Northeast 23rd Avenue. In 1986, the neighborhood, through the efforts of a hard-working, industrious resident, formed the Seven Isles Homeowners’ Association. The Association had the name of 23rd Avenue changed to Seven Isles Drive. With a majority of residents making a significant contribution, the guardhouse was designed by a resident of Seven Islands and then built.
