With its show-stopping blend of Old World architectural marvels and modern-era splendor, the famed Nero Estate stands alone as a true residential original in South Florida. The Sanctuary, a private enclave of luxury estates along the Intracoastal in Boca Raton, provides the exclusive backdrop for this 15,856-square-foot masterpiece, nestled on a coveted lot with 258 feet of water frontage. The seven-bedroom, eight-bath (with three half-baths) double-lot property, brimming with rare artisanal details, finds inspiration everywhere from Western Asia to Europe to the Windy City.The design drama begins in the grand rotunda, an entrance that includes a 12-foot-tall antique, handcrafted wood door.Elements in the kitchen (the four-sided dome over the breakfast nook) and in the central galley (barrel-vaulted design with hand-carved stone detailing) recall ceiling treatments prevalent in Renaissance-era Italy. Antique wood inlays and leather-padded ceiling beams in the study speak to Tuscan influences that resonate throughout the home. Striking precision-cut travertine tiles adorn the lower level, while upper-level bedrooms boast flooring manufactured from reclaimed hardwood that's more than 150 years old. Reclaimed antique wood treads, meanwhile, add to the majesty of a grand staircase designed with imported Italian marble. Inspiration closer to home comes in the form of Chicago brick pavers in the charming, Euro-style wine cellar with custom-crafted lighting (another consistent feature in room after room). For all of its historical details and global sourcing, the Nero Estate also checks more than its share of contemporary amenities. An all-encompassing Crestron system gives the home a completely different feel at night, casting the property in dramatic shades thanks to state-of-the-art interior and exterior LED lights. The cinema-style theater with customized leather recliners and cutting-edge acoustics blends the worlds of comfort and technology to produce the ultimate immersive atmosphere. Luxury amenities cover transportation by land or by sea. Automobile aficionados will appreciate the mammoth garage, large enough to accommodate 14 cars. Boating enthusiasts have access to a high-tech lift, capable of hoisting a 50-foot yachtpart of a dock that stretches some 250 feet along the Intracoastal. A resort-style pool and spa, exquisite landscaping, a firepit, and sprawling entertaining areas add to the outdoor experience. The Nero Estate is history in the makingand so much more.
