The heir of a founder of the IHOP restaurant chain listed his mansion in a suburb of Fort Lauderdale for $7.25 million – or the tab for approximately 1.5 million short stacks of IHOP buttermilk pancakes.

Nathan and Jacqueline Finkel listed the 21,656-square-foot residence in Southwest Ranches with an asking price that equates to $334 per square foot.

Nathan’s father, Abe Finkel, was a founder of IHOP, known formally as International House of Pancakes, LLC, a Glendale, California-based company with more than 1,750 restaurants serving breakfast and other meals across the United State and in 15 foreign countries.

The custom-built mansion on a 7.5-acre lot at 5550 Hancock Road in Southwest Ranches has 9 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, four half bathrooms and a five-car garage.

Interior features include a two-lane bowling alley, four fireplaces, a 12-seat theater room, an 800-square-foot bar room, and a living room with (of course) a breakfast area.

The residence also comes with three offices, a library, quarters for maids or nannies, his and her master bathrooms, and balconies with views to the east and west.

Two ponds flank the entry to the privately gated mansion, and the backyard has a lighted tennis court, a gazebo with barbecue equipment, and a resort-style swimming pool with a waterfall, slide, hot tub and deck.

The listing agents are Mark A. Kaminsky and Kevin O’steen of the Kaminisky/Reyes Team at Coldwell Banker.– Mike Seemuth
