Every once in a while, a property comes along that is so exceptional that you’ll be hard-pressed to compare it to anything else on the market. This Highland Beach, FL, oceanfront estate just outside Boca Raton, is just that. Unique in design, scale and lot size—it delivers in every way as the perfect enclave for those wanting a place to escape to when Northeast winters get ugly.
“The ideal buyer is probably someone with multiple residences,” says real estate agent Jonathan Postma of Coldwell Banker Realty in Boca Raton, FL.
New York City-based Madey Architects, the firm behind the home’s design, is known for their work creating private residences that are understated and timeless. This trophy estate is no exception. Interiors are transitional with touches of modern French-eclectic architecture. Entering through an ogee arched front door into a grand two-story foyer sets the tone for guests that this property is something special. Custom paneled walls and a marble geometric floor in cream and black frame the entrance, which has a clear view to the ocean.
The house, with more than 17,000 square feet of living space, is made for entertaining. Interior rooms designed by Marc-Michaels, are at once elegant and casual and offer lots of spaces to entertain, including two modern living rooms for gathering around the fireplace—one with a show-stopping marble surround, the other with floor to ceiling windows providing views of the water. A billiards room with bar overlooking the ocean has French doors out to the pool. “The designer brought the feel of the ocean into the house with light earth tones and blues,” says Postma.
With eight bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, guests have an abundance of privacy. “Every bedroom feels like a VIP suite or master of its own,” says Postma. “Every room is open and spaces, almost feeling like the presidential suite at a hotel.”
Outside, the property’s nearly two acres offer more than 150 feet of beachfront. A summer kitchen and outdoor covered grill area make dining outdoors easy. “You can look at the ocean while grilling, then dine al fresco to take advantage of ocean views and sounds,” adds Postma.
The home also has a cabana bath by the pool and a six-car garage and four-car carport. Located in the estate section of Byrd Beach, it’s also minutes away from shopping and dining in Boca Raton.
