The 282-acre community features lush landscaping and 469 magnificently appointed residences, priced from under $1 million to $5 million.
“Savvy buyers were quick to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase quick occupancy homes at The Oaks at Boca Raton,” says Lorna Swartz, Director of Sales & Marketing for Boca's most sought-after estate home community. “With all homes in inventory now sold, exciting new models are currently underway and a limited number of completely furnished models have been released for sale.”
Laurie and Sean O’Neal, along with children Lily, 8, and Brayden, 5, are the happy new owners of the six-bedroom, 7,712 square-foot Biella model within the Royal Estates Collection at The Oaks.
According to Laurie, “We looked at several surrounding communities before absolutely falling in love with The Oaks at Boca Raton. It was a combination of the newness and natural beauty of the community, and all of the great people we met along the way that made us just fall in love. We love everything about our new home and made very few changes. I knew right away that it was the perfect fit for us.”
Renay Chung and her family are the happy owners of the five-bedroom, 7,138 square-foot Carlton model at The Oaks. The family had been looking for the right home for over a year-and-a-half while renting in East Boca and closed on their home at The Oaks in January of 2009.
“We looked all over, from Boynton Beach to Boca and Delray, and we just really fell in love with this community,” says Renay. “The home that we found had many upgrades, a beautiful backyard and as far as the amenities, it's as close to a country club as you're going to get without country club fees.
