Santa Barbara Boca Raton
This gated neighborhood, initiated in 1992, spearheaded a real estate development era in Boca's history that generated a stream of residential luxury themes distinguishing the city’s diversity even today. Santa Barbara, on ten landscaped acres, is on the northeast corner of Jog Road and Glades, directly opposite the much heralded Boca West Country Club. The homes are located around a sparkling lake or amid flourishing Florida foliage with spectacular water and garden views. The builders responsible for this unique enclave were none other than award-winning Ahmanson Developments and Marlex, who established an unmistakable Mediterranean and Addison Mizner architecture theme.
Buyers interested in Homes For sale in Santa Barbara will quickly discover that it's a robust tennis-centric community, containing 241 SF houses ranging from under two thousand to three thousand square feet.

- Round-the-clock guardhouse security.
- Pet-friendly protocols.

A significant feature of Santa Barbara, Boca Raton, is its excellent city position - 1.6 miles from the expansive Town Center Mall (i.e., unmatched upscale shopping) and less than 4 miles to the beach. As a result, every big city convenience, from banking to healthcare facilities, gas, beauty salons, hundreds of eateries, watersports, and more, is at the Santa Barbara residents' doorstep. Moreover, there are around forty-four private, and public golf courses close at hand. Then, the I 95 and Florida Turnpike (a couple of miles directly down and up the road) can take residents to the Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach airports in thirty minutes or less. In short, Santa Barbara is front and center of Boca Raton's vibrant action.

We suggest that the most significant upgrades to look for are impact glass windows and doors, new roofing, and replaced air conditioning, failing which buyers should budget for installation after closing. It could go as high as $100,000 in total. In addition, if buying at the top price (i.e., $460 per square foot), the home should feature the latest stainless steel appliances with high-end brand names, imported granite, marble, stone, and wood materials on floors, cabinetry, and other surfaces. Finally, the HOA monthly fee of $580 for the numerous benefits and maintenance of the common facilities reflects significant reserves. The latter is in line with most pre-2000 gated neighborhoods in central Boca. (Note - the above metrics pertain to 2022 and, of course, can change over time, so always check prices.)

Going back to the CCs and yachting homes:

However, the HOA fees are around $5000 monthly with a $100,000 (plus) one-time, non-refundable equity charge on entry.
