This 15-acre ocean-to-lake estate stands alone in all of the Palm Beaches for its beauty, privacy, amenities and sheer scale. Offering a remarkable combination of 1,200+/- feet of dune-lined beach on the Atlantic with 1,300+/- feet of frontage on Lake Worth, 2000 South Ocean Boulevard is unrivaled among South Florida's most significant waterfront properties. Perched atop a dune, with 360-degree views, it is the only direct oceanfront home for almost a mile, yet just minutes from Worth Avenue. Like many estates in the area, the property is divided by South Ocean Boulevard, yet the road is essentially imperceptible thanks to a series of tunnels including one that is a furnished 15-foot-wide gallery. See supplemental text... A true family compound, the estate offers a 12-bedroom main residence; two four-bedroom beachside cottages; the seven-bedroom Mango House; and a guest or staff house comprising four studios and apartments. In total there are more than 30 bedrooms, a series of formal and informal living and dining areas, a media room, libraries, offices, numerous terraces, an expansive wine cellar and two elevators. The centerpiece main residence offers 62,200 Â± square feet with both ocean and lake views. Gemini offers an array of recreational amenities, including a swimming pool, PGA standard golf area, regulation tennis court, half basketball court, fitness center and spa. Pathways lead to the beach on the ocean as well as to a dock and pier on the lake for boating and water sports. The proximity of the Gulf Stream affords Gemini a singular microclimate, with refreshing breezes and warmer waters, even when cooler weather prevails in Miami, 65 miles to the south. These unique conditions allowed for the creation of extensive botanical gardens that showcase nearly 1,500 tropical species that replicate a "walk through the Caribbean." The offering of this exclusive enclave affords a once in a generation opportunity to acquire a family compound that simply cannot be replicated.
