Double the mansions, double the fun?
Two side-by-side Fort Lauderdale mansions, built for the twin brothers and their families, have just come on the market together for $54 million. The French country-style homes face each other on over 11 acres of lush grounds and are separated only by a man-made lake.
The houses are listed by chiropractor Robert Lewin, who lived in the larger of the two (at 13000 Lane) with his wife Lisa and their four daughters. The open-air residence spans nearly 17,000 square feet and features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a staff bedroom, two half baths, and a guest house. Across the road, Robert’s twin brother, Harley Lewin, and his two sons have taken up residence in a slightly smaller 14,485 square foot (13001 Lewin Lane) mansion set in 3.6 acres. It includes five bedrooms and six full bathrooms.
Both homes were designed by architect Jeffrey Dungan and completed in 2020, according to co-listing agents Jills Eber, Jon Mann and Jill Hertzberg of the Jills Zeder Group. Both feature neutral interior design by Josh Fein of Fein Zalkin Interiors. For the larger house, Fein created a progression of slender rooms adorned with natural materials, including limestone floors, French oak ceilings, and a custom stone staircase. The double-height great room leads to an outdoor seating area by the pool.
Designed to entertain, 13000 Lewin Lane’s has a dining room that can accommodate up to 18 people. In the kitchen, you’ll find top-of-the-line appliances including a Wolf gas range and Sub-Zero refrigerator encased in golden Calcatta marble countertops and custom oak wood cabinetry. The master bedroom on the first floor is equally upscale. It houses a huge two-story closet, as well as an en-suite bathroom with a view of the private garden, a Waterworks bathtub and a marble shower.
The larger house also offers a theater, office spaces, an outdoor kitchen, two separate three-car garages and a Generac industrial generator capable of powering the entire house.
Although it features a similar aesthetic, 13001 Lewin Lane has its own unique offerings. Her spacious living room features two McLain Wiesand chandeliers and a matching black granite fireplace wall with a personalized book. A large aquarium separates this space and the dining room, which can accommodate 20 people.
The master bedroom of the house has hardwood floors, a living room, Donghia wood veneer wall coverings, a walk-in closet and a TV projector hidden in the ceiling. Her master bathroom features a large steam shower with sliding doors that open to a full outdoor shower next to a sunken tub. Other special amenities on 13001 include three Sub-Zero wine coolers, an outdoor infinity pool, covered patio, game room, and ample four-car garage.
“With exquisite appointments everywhere, these homes feel like you’re immersed in the beauty of France,” co-listing agent Jon Mann said in a statement. “The grounds are absolutely stunning, making this property a private and charming paradise.”
