Lake Boca Raton, Estate of the Day
Can it really be a year since I've checked out a house on Lake Drive in Boca Raton. Florida? I suppose so, it's been a year since I've been there to visit my family. Today's home is a seven-bedroom mansion right on Lake Boca. The home, created by architect Tom Benedict and builder Bill Szymanski, is luxurious but not quite as exceedingly lavish as some in the area. The open foyer and floating concrete staircase make for a grand entrance. The living room faces the lake and pool and has a bar with aquarium and multiple sitting areas. The home has two full kitchens, a home theater, study, library, gym and an elevator to tie it all together. The grounds include gardens, infinity edge pool, summer kitchen and private terraces. The home has 150 feet of waterfront with a boat and jetski lift and full power dock. And if there is anything I've learned about Lake Drive it's that the yacht out in front is at least as important as the car in the driveway. This home is listed at $19.95 million. You are going to need a big boat.
