Unique Homes Ultimate ’17 Cover Showcase Home

It’s difficult to assign a dollar figure to peace of mind, but that is what the 27,000-square-foot Boca Raton property featured on our cover offers, along with an extraordinarily appointed residence on par with premier properties worldwide and over one-and-a-half acres of lush gardens and water features. Located in the gated enclave of Princeton Estates within Woodfield Country Club, the property offers a huge measure of security without being cloistered.
Every facet is exceptional, but the recreational amenities, which include a dynamic home theater, exercise and massage rooms, a surreal game room with space devoted to electronic gaming, waterfalls, lagoons, spas and a basketball court, are over the top. The estate has been the setting for a number of galas and South Florida philanthropic events. “The entertainment spaces are as close as one can get to having a country club setting in a residence,” says John Poletto, co-owner with Mark Nestler of Nestler Poletto Sotheby’s International Realty in Boca Raton, Florida.
There are few, if any, communities in South Florida as active or as family oriented as this one, shares Mark Nestler. “To be within proximity of the ocean and have this young of a profile is exceptional, and the culture of the community is amazing,” he says. Not only does Boca have excellent schools, but it also has some of the best private schools in Florida.
A private airport, soon to handle international flights, is only 15 minutes away, but what really facilitates travel from this refuge is knowing that your family is safe and secure. Some might say that’s priceless, but in this instance the cost is a list price of $29.95 million.
