THIS TROPICAL ESTATE IS MINUTES AWAY FROM THE HEART OF BOCA RATON, FEATURING TONS OF AMENITIES AND JAPANESE INSPIRATIONS.
The property is located in the private and exclusive Le Lac, a 200-acre gated community just five miles from the center of Boca Raton. John W. Henry, owner of the Boston Red Sox, and The Boston Globe & Liverpool Football Club, has listed his house with Senada Adzem of Douglas Elliman Real Estate for $25 million. Upon entry, you will see the sunset room, which is an octagonal room with beautiful floor to ceiling windows, which brings in the natural light. The living area and all entertainment areas are Japanese influenced in that it’s an open space plan with clean architectural lines. The interiors including the furnishings, were all custom made for the Henry family and named “The House of Peace” for its Japanese stimuli.
