Property Description

Boca Raton has earned a reputation for its world-class amenities, upscale dining and palatial waterfront homes. However, Estate Realtors, Tara West and Darin Tansey are focusing their attention on a different breed of Boca Raton home: a five-acre sprawling estate set against the backdrop of a nature reserve, known as Villa Florentyna.

     Rare to the Boca Raton market, this expansive property offers complete privacy amidst a lushly landscaped setting. The outside of this home has been as meticulously considered as the inside. Outdoor amenities include a 37-foot waterfall, a stylish pool with paver bricks, several large ponds, Koi fish pond with over 40 Koi and new tennis courts. Due to the sheer acreage of this estate and multiple use zoning, the life-style it offers can be versatile. The owner recently added spectacular lights and laser lights throughout the property, which brings it to life at night. An extensive walking path weaves throughout the gorgeous property grounds with majestic animal statues discreetly hidden amongst the foliage. It’s truly a magical wonderland.

     The home is a chef’s dream as it offers a modern kitchen with high end appliances. The living room brings the outdoors in, with panoramic views of lush foliage and water accents. Unique architectural details are around every corner, some of which have taken the owner 20 years to develop.

     One may relax by the pool, play a game of tennis, exercise in the 800-square foot gym or watch a movie in the stereo soundproof home theater room as well as having access to all the amenities Boca Raton is known for just minutes away. A membership with the Boca Raton Resort & Club is also included. Travel is a breeze when you have both the Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale Airports nearby.

     This property is truly unique in that it’s zoned as residential, commercial, mixed-use and agricultural. The property could serve well as a private residence, an exclusive and luxurious rehabilitation center, or equestrian house. Half the property is serviced by Gas and the other half electric power. 

     Another important feature of this home is its energy savings ability, as many of the home’s features may qualify for LEED certifications which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. For example, the walls are insulated concrete, the roof is completely insulated form, and stem wall construction of the foundation.

     This Boca Raton gem truly offers the best of both worlds: unparalleled luxury in a pristine location. A standout property in a sea of water-centered listings, the expansive estate will make you feel as if you are living a resort lifestyle, miles away from it all.
