Widmer designed and developed the stunning six-bedroom, eight-bathroom estate. Crafted to impress, the 10,000-square-foot home is the 11th property designed and developed by JMW as part of the Mary Widmer Luxury Collection.

Located less than 10 minutes from the Boca Raton Airport, 899 Enfield is the only new construction home on a direct Intracoastal Waterway point lot available in Boca Raton, according to Gillespie. The gated property has 202 feet of water frontage, providing a panoramic experience of the best views waterfront living has to offer.

“It is an honor to have the opportunity to showcase this one-of-a-kind new construction masterpiece on an international stage,” said Gillespie. “The editors at HGTV recognized that 899 Enfield Street is an estate of significance, flawless design and unparalleled construction and craftsmanship. Not surprisingly, interest in the property is strong- especially from markets in the Northeast.”

Masterfully designed by Ron Rickert, Managing Principal at lntelae, LLC. This architectural marvel is perfectly situated on an east facing waterfront lot.

The estate constructed by Ed Clement of Sabre Custom Homes features six bedrooms, eight full baths, a 12-seat media room, club room, private office, two 50-foot concrete docks for boating enthusiasts, an Infinity Edge pool with a spa and a four-car garage with a lift – among other standout amenities.

Heavily involved in the community, Gillespie is past chair of the Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors in Boca Raton and is involved with The Arc of Palm Beach County and Impact 100 Palm Beach County.

“We congratulate Kathryn and the Illustrated team on securing this incredible recognition,” said Mike Pappas, President and CEO of Illustrated Properties. “We are excited for HGTV enthusiasts to discover this unique listing. Keyes and our Family of Companies encourage our agents to utilize our marketing, tools and infrastructure and apply their own creativity to maximize exposure and results.”
