The Estates

 

Known as the jewel in the crown of Boca Raton, The Estates carries on Addison Mizner’s glamorous tradition of world-class resort living in Old Boca Raton’s most prestigious beachside enclave.  Sumptuous tropical foliage adds to the timeless atmosphere of The Estates luxury real estate in this prime location across from the legendary Boca Raton Resort & Club and the exclusive Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club.

 

This historic community was originally developed by financier Clarence H. Geist, a prominent figure in Boca Raton’s rise to fame as an exclusive Gold Coast resort, who also developed Addison Mizner’s extravagant 1920’s hotel, The Cloisters Inn, now the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort.  Magnificently cloaked in mature tropical verdure, the unusually large lots of The Estates luxury homes for sale include the stately residences of picturesque Spanish River Road which front the Intracoastal Waterway with magnificent outdoor entertainment spaces, some equipped with private boat docks.  The Estates homes for sale on interior lots are also surrounded by lush landscaping in quiet Old Florida seclusion.  Some residences in the neighborhood are original 1930’s estates designed by the celebrated Swiss-born society architect Maurice Fatio in his signature Mediterranean Revival style.

 

A short stroll from the gorgeous sands of the Atlantic Ocean beachfront, The Estates real estate has long been considered among the most desirable in all of Boca Raton.  Adding to its allure, Mizner Park’s world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment are just a couple miles away, and Boca Raton’s private executive airport is only a 15±-minute drive.
