Idlewyld is one of the original Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods and was founded largely by Thomas Stillwell in 1920, who purchases and plotted most of the land. Unlike Las Olas Isles and the Seven Isles that were dredged and filled by developers, Idlewyld was naturally developed. The original homes in in Idlewyld are some of the oldest in Fort Lauderdale. The architecture in this neighborhood is varied. From the 1920’s and 1930’s Spanish revival style homes by architect Francis Abreu, and the mid-century ranch homes, to new construction Mediterranean style homes, these homes are highly desirable in the Fort Lauderdale real estate marketplace. This is one of the most luxurious neighborhoods as well, which boasted the earliest homes in Fort Lauderdale to sell for over 10 million.
There are 125 homes in Idylwyld and all residents can enjoy the waterfront, since a wide sidewalk encompasses the island. Waterfront homes enjoy docks across Idlewyld Drive and incredible eastern Intracoastal views. It is accessible through two secure entrances, one on Idlewyld Drive and the other at Hibiscus Place. Idlewyld is conveniently located fifteen minutes from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport and is it near the eastern end of La Olas, west of the Las Olas bridge. Its proximity to Las Olas allows residents to enjoy the European style shopping and dining, while still enjoying a private family oriented community. It is also a short drive to the white sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale as well as to the Downtown District.
