No other property would be better suited for an issue devoted to prestige properties than the palatial waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, Florida, featured on our cover. It’s not often family, Miami and a palatial residence are mentioned in this same sentence, but that’s what makes this property is so spectacular.

The gated community of Gables Estates offers the ultimate in security, including patrols on the water. It’s not unusual to see children out on bikes and neighbors walking dogs here. Nearby are some of the best schools in the Miami. That’s one of many reasons why those who know the area see Gables Estates as one of the best neighborhoods, explains Sandra Fiorenza with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, who is representing the property.

The 14,443 square foot residence itself offers a huge measure of security with concrete construction and windows that exceed hurricane standards. The exterior is clad with marble, and the same stone — all from a single source — is used on covered balconies and lanais that overlook an infi nity pool and the blue of the wide lagoon. Inside, light dances throughout the home. A neutral palate becomes an ideal backdrop to showcase exquisite details such as Venetian plaster and carved plaster moldings, marble columns and stone carvings. The overall effect is elegant and restrained. 

An extensive master suite with his and her bathrooms occupies one wing of the second floor with an additional four en-suite bedrooms in an opposite wing. The home also has two offices, private staff quarters and a wine cellar. The site on the largest lagoon in Gables Estates also offers access to deep water and the ocean. With a new seawall and 140-foot dock, this could be the ultimate Miami home, as well as a perfect family compound. It’s easy to see why those who know the area see Gables Estates as one of the best places to call home. This Ultimate compound is priced at $25.9 million.

Classic Florida Beachfront Enclave

Your island estate located in a secluded and private setting just off road. An extended driveway greets you to this outstanding gulf-front property of two attached homes. Upper $2 million.

Chris Loffreno originally appeared as an Elite agent in the Unique Homes Spring ’19: Elite edition

The home featured on our cover was crafted with the intention to impress, and clearly this objective has been achieved. But first impressions only hint at the value and experience of this property.

Located at a point where a canal and the Intracoastal Waterway intersect, it occupies an unparalleled location with panoramic vistas, deep water and easy access to the Atlantic. Currently, it’s the only new construction on the Intracoastal point lot in Boca Raton, but what makes it undeniably one of Boca’s prime properties is exceptional forward-looking design that is perfectly executed by luxury developer Mary Widmer. It is at once elegant, but comfortable, combining traditional elements in a streamlined design that also showcases features such as vintage ironwork, intricate ceiling treatments and a 35-foot-tall entry rotunda.

“Even though it’s over 10,000 square feet, it is cozy. There is such a warm feeling; this house just makes you happy when you are there,” says listing agent Kathryn Gillespie of Illustrated Properties. A well-conceived floorplan means this property is ideal for a range of lifestyles and life stages, as both a full-time residence or resort oasis.

Almost all the rooms look out to the water and to the lush green ribbon, including a mangrove preserve that lines the opposite shore. Extensive amenities include a media room, huge lower-level club room, office and a wine station. From either of the two 50-foot docks — both have electricity and water — it’s only minutes to the Atlantic via the Boca or the Hillsboro inlet. Boca’s private airport is also only 10 minutes away.

It’s hard not to fall in love with this property, which even has a little sandy beach with a fire pit. And being on the Intracoastal and still able to put your toes in the sand might be one of its most impressive features. The $11.5 million list price includes the furnishings. — Camilla McLaughlin
