    Some parts I like, some parts I don’t like. The exterior and grounds are beautiful, and I especially like that it’s not another mock-Med/Mizner-knockoff. I also think the covered boat house is great, but it doesn’t look like it would hold a very wide boat. I also notice there are no cleats to tie to, so I wonder how often it’s used.

    The interior definitely has potential. Even though it’s West Indies inspired, without tons of interior changes, different types of decor could work. The quality of the interior pictures is terrible and make the house look dark. The proportions of some of the rooms looks off, but that could also be pics.

    I love the exterior and interior! The covered boat house is wonderful!

    I like this house, even though West Indies isn’t a style I would build (although this style is becoming VERY prevalent). The lot is beautiful and thank goodness they decided to keep the oak trees. I actually think it is one of the largest lots on the water in Boca. The remodel looks very well done. I like the interior and exterior design, though some rooms look off. The pool is beautiful. The part I dislike the most is the covered boat slip. Price is high but that is because of the land. This street (5th Avenue) is sort of an odd one in Boca. Homes on the market tend to linger for several years. But we shall see. I do think this is a much better value than this home, which is considered a teardown and is located a few lots north:

      Seriously, Dan…….have you honestly spoken to the Agent(s) who’ve listed that home, and have they HONESTLY told you that it’s been repeatedly considered a TWELVE-A-HALF-MILLION-DOLLAR TEARDOWN? MAYBE ten years ago, yes. I find your statement categorically unbelievable in this day & age, as the entire NATIONAL real estate market, most especially the absolute upper end, has just taken another big slowdown to the nuts in the past 3 to 6 months, and Floridas’ market still in the doldrums? Remember, I used to be a high end Realtor, and still keep a close watch on four of (New York, L.A., the greater Miami area, and San Francisco) the countrys’ high end market, regularly.

    No doubt that this house is a better value for the money than the on you linked to. That house shows every one of it’s 29 years. Someone could completely remodel that, but who knows how many millions it would take.

      That was supposed to be a reply to your comment Daniel. Clearly I need training in using web page buttons. :-/

      I don’t think that house should be remodeled. It started off life as a Contemporranean home and it would be very difficult to have a cohesive style inside and out without doing some drastic changes.

    I like the home a lot and it’s very refreshing to see something other than Mediterranean for a change. I just don’t love 5th Avenue. If this was on the other side of the intracoastal in the Estates Section on Spanish River Road, Boca Raton Por la Mar, or Sun and Surf this would be absolutely perfect IMHO. The one benefit I see of being on the west side of the intracoastal is you don’t have to worry about getting suck in traffic for 10 minutes when the bridge is up for boats.

    Even though this place is ONCE AGAIN, ridiculously oversized, it IS absolutely beautiful. LUV everything about it (except the size, naturally) and the SHOWER in the master bath is GOR-JUSS, and whomever designed it is a genius……love the use of the rough-hewn, stacked stone…beautiful.

    I love this place.
    If luck be a lady tonight and I win the Powerball, this would be on my shopping list.

    I am not sure if that is a boat garage so much as a jet ski garage. It looks way too narrow to fit a boat and I would not feel comfortable with my boat so close to rocks on either side.
