Estate of the Day: Boca Raton, FL

Avenue Le Rivage, Boca Raton, Florida. Le Rivage combines privacy and exclusivity in a tropical island setting hosting only 18 estates. This desirable address is just a short drive from Mizner Park’s world-class shops and restaurants, beautiful beaches, the acclaimed Boca Raton Resort & Club, and Boca Raton’s private executive airport.

Old World majesty conveys a magnificent presence in this one-of-a-kind lakefront estate overlooking the shimmering waters to a forested nature preserve. Exquisitely embellished, the keystone-clad villa is introduced by a fountained brick motor court approaching the impressive porte cochere and 8-bay garage. The gorgeous lakeside pool and spa grace a limestone terrace amid exotic palms and tropical gardens. Two summer kitchens serve outdoor entertaining.

This spectacular Boca Raton residence completed in 2009 totals 12,826+/- square feet with high ceilings, limestone/hardwood floors, 5 bedrooms, 6½ baths, 2 climate-controlled wine cellars, elevator, and roof-top observation deck. The main living level is elevated to maximize the breathtaking views. A dramatic cupolaed foyer with onyx-inlaid floor flows into the soaring octagonal salon and banquet-sized dining room with French doors to a limestone balcony. The gilded Deco-inspired theater is resplendent under a “starlight” ceiling. The epicurean’s kitchen highlights an immense granite-topped island, limestone counters, and double Sub-Zero refrigerators. Lake and forest vistas backdrop the family room where beautiful media/storage built-ins frame the elaborate hand carved fireplace. Enjoying a view-filled lakeside balcony, the grand master suite also features hardwood floors, triple tray ceilings, an onyx wet bar, and opulent bath aglow in polished onyx. Another bedroom suite completes this level. Opening by the pool area, the ground level hosts a paneled office, gym with spa-style bath, billiard room with wet bar, and 3 luxurious bedroom suites.
