Luxury Auction® Approaches for Waterfront Home Within FL Community Ranked as One of Nation’s Most Exclusive by Forbes Magazine

Luxury real estate auction firm Platinum Luxury Auctions is preparing for the upcoming auction sale of a contemporary waterfront estate located within the Sanctuary of Boca Raton, a gated residential community in Boca Raton, Florida. The ritzy neighborhood, situated on the western side of the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach County, has been ranked by Forbes magazine as one of the most exclusive gated communities in the United States. Although recently offered for an asking price of $3.8 million, the property will now be sold to the highest bidder who meets or exceeds a bid of only $1.5 million at the live auction sale, to be held on the property site on August 26, 2017. Platinum, a firm specializing in the non-distressed auction sale of multimillion-dollar homes on behalf of their affluent sellers, was retained by the property’s owner to exclusively manage the sale.

“We’re pleased to be working within the Sanctuary, a community long-known to be one of Boca Raton’s best,” stated David Enriquez, Platinum’s vice president of operations. “Its relatively boutique size, excellent security and waterfront amenities have made it a preferred location for many prominent business moguls and their families. It’s extremely rare for an auction to be conducted within this coveted enclave.”

Completely renovated by its current owner in 2012, the single-story, contemporary estate offers 5,000 square feet of interior living area, with 5 bedrooms, 6 full and one half bath. It is situated on a wide, deep-water canal, and boasts 70 linear feet of dockage. The large canal, combined with the wake protection and privacy offered by a 27-acre wildlife preserve located immediately east of the community, create exceptional dockage conditions for the avid boater. There are no fixed bridges between the property and the nearest inlet, making a cruise to the Atlantic Ocean a breeze.

Designed in a beach chic style with a light color palette, the residence features lofted ceilings and bright, airy living spaces, with most rooms offering views of the pool and the waterway through floor-to-ceiling windows and doors. Several bedrooms feature direct access to the pool deck, creating a seamless blend between indoor and outdoor living areas. The impressive kitchen, located just off the main salon, was designed by Pedini New York, and features Viking appliances and a welcoming, open layout that flows into the other living areas.

Outdoor living areas include a large front yard with a semi-circular, paved entry, and a backyard offering a manicured pool deck outfitted in custom pavers and artificial grass, a custom pool and spa with sun-soaking deck, and a summer kitchen with video and audio systems.

Additional features include a +300-bottle wine room, integrated Smart Home features controllable via iPad, a spacious master bedroom suite with a designer bath, and a three-car garage.

The Sanctuary of Boca Raton has long been considered one of the most exclusive gated communities in Palm Beach County. Its ninety estates – two-thirds of which feature private, deep-water dockage – typically range from $2 million to more than $20 million in price. In addition to its namesake, 27-acre wildlife preserve, The Sanctuary offers a 23-slip marina (built to accommodate boats up to 65 ft. in length), Har-Tru tennis courts, a children’s playground and round-the-clock security patrolling both the roads and the waterways behind its manned gates.

The property is available for open house previews by interested buyers between the hours of 12 and 4pm (EDT) each Thursday through Sunday, until the auction. Visitors must make an appointment with Platinum in advance in order to proceed through the community’s guard gate. Additional information is available at, or by contacting a Platinum representative at 800.678.2293.
