The Boca Raton real estate market offers home buyers a wide-range of options and opportunities, but the vast selection of luxury homes for sale here is often what defines the local housing landscape. For some buyers, a sprawling mansion that sits right alongside the oceanfront is the ultimate luxury living experience, and for others it’s a place that backs right up to the 18th green on one of Boca’s numerous championship golf courses.
In almost every case, though, living in a gated community and enjoying that extra layer of privacy and security tends to be a top priority for luxury home buyers, which works out well given Boca Raton’s fabulous inventory of upscale gated communities. But just like any other aspect of the housing market, not all gated communities in town are created equal, and that’s something that can cause a problem for anyone who truly wants it all when looking for a new place to live.
Generally speaking, the phrase “wanting it all” is subjective and can mean something entirely different from one home buyer to the next. But in a place like Boca Raton, something along the waterfront usually qualifies as a “must-have” feature, which sometimes limits your options if you also prefer being in a gated community. But with that said, if you also know just where to look when seeking out a new place to live, gated homes along the waterfront aren't impossible to find, especially in these highly-touted Boca communities:
Kinney & Gates
The fabulous Kinney & Gates community features just 14 custom homes, making it one of Boca’s smallest gated neighborhoods. But if talk to anyone who already owns a home here, they’ll be the first to say they love the tight-knit community feel you get from living in Kinney & Gates, but of course the lavish waterfront homes featured in the neighborhood also make it a pretty desirable place to call home too.
Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club
Probably considered Boca Raton’s most recognizable gated community, the Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club has it all. But despite featuring 700 luxury estates, homes for sale in Royal Palm that sit on the waterfront are among the most highly sought-after, sometimes making it difficult to find and secure that perfect waterfront home to call your own; so keep that in mind if you do see something you like and always act fast!
5th Avenue Estates
If you love homes with a modern or contemporary flair, most homes for sale in 5th Avenue Estates won’t leave you disappointed. Lining the west side of Boca’s Intracoastal Waterway, this stunning collection of luxury estates offer a luxury living experience unlike anything else in town. Look for many homes in the neighborhood to include private deep water dockage, separate guest houses, private boat houses, resort-style pools, and even a tennis court in some instances.
