An ultra-exclusive enclave of custom estate homes, The Sanctuary stands out as the most private and secure among the luxury waterfront communities between Federal Highway and the Intracoastal Waterway in Boca Raton.
This guard-gated community has an air of prestige and offers an exceptional location. Forbes Magazine included The Sanctuary on its list “Top 10 most expensive gated communities in the US.”
The 92 custom estates, covering 107 original home sites in The Sanctuary, were built between the early 1980’s and today. Many residents have combined multiple lots to create true estate-sized compounds in styles that range from stately Mediterranean revival mansions to contemporary Florida masterpieces. There is a home for every luxury buyer concerned with privacy in the Sanctuary and roughly two-thirds of the homes are located on a canal or the Intracoastal Waterway.
Situated approximately three miles from the Boca Raton Inlet, residents are just a short boat ride – with no fixed bridges - to the open waters of the brilliant Atlantic Ocean via the Intracoastal Waterway. From here, boat owners can cruise down the Intracoastal Waterway along the southeast Florida coastline visiting various restaurants and shops that line the bank. Docking a boat at The Sanctuary is easy, as most of the homes feature private docks that can accommodate boats ranging from 30 feet -100 feet in length on deep water canals. In addition, there is a full-service community marina available.
The Sanctuary is just two miles east of I-95 – the shortest distance between any waterfront community and the Interstate - and an easy walk or bike ride to the beach, which is only less than one mile away over the Spanish River bridge to the south of the community.
