The Post, Sunday.-H7 Les Jardins Emphasizes ' Seclusion SrKial la tim Pwt BOCA RATON - Is a secluded lifestyle possible when your home lies in the midst of one of the most active and desirable cities on Florida's Gold Coast? AmeriFirst Development Corp. . says it is if the homeowner resides in its Boca Raton estate-home community of Les Jardins, on St Andrews Boulevard, 14 miles north of Glades Road. Les Jardins' luxurious, custom-built residences are priced from $375,000. " Although it is within minutes of one of South Florida's busiest regional , malls (Town Center), a principal Palm Beach County employer (IBM) and major expressways (Interstate 95 ana r londa s Turnpike), Les Jar- dins retains the character of a hideaway a retreat inspired by the delightful charm of the chateau country in France. - For more than two years, a team of -community design specialists architects, landscape architects, land- ; scape specialists, engineers and construction managers worked together to make Les Jardins' master ; plan achieve an optimum level of privacy. All the design elements were considered: entryway, gate- 1 house, streetscape, perimeter walls, - iandplan, landscaping and even rec reational facilities. " Foremost in the master plan was limiting the number of homes to be built to 122 residences, most of which .will be situated on home sites a half- acre or larger. Three-quarters of the fiomes will not back up to another 1 House; one-third will be on parks and one-fifth on water. V The majority of residences also will be on cul-de-sacs, all of which branch off the Rue des Jardins, a central boulevard divided by a medi an tilled with plants and ornamentals and shaded by wide-canopied trees. A gatehouse entryway to Les Jar-,dins provides 24-hour security, while perimeter walls and waterways enclose the community, separating it from adjoining properties. Also contributing to this estate lifestyle is Les Jardins' sense of spaciousness. More than 18 of 105 acres are devoted to garden parks and community recreation. While the parks offer quiet spaces for informal picnics and leisurely walks, a sprawling 6 Vt -acre clubhouse complex has a lounging deck surrounding a large free-form pool and a whirlpool. The clubhouse itself has a sauna, equipped exercise room, kitchen facilities and a patio that overlooks the two lighted tennis courts. A 14-mile, 18-station fitness course completes the on-site recreation, planned for the sole use of residents. Home owners also are eligible to apply for membership in the Boca Raton Hotel & Club and Boca Beach Club. Some 15,500 shrubs, 6,000 flowering plants, 2,600 trees and 1,000 ornamentals create an array of vivid colors. Les Jardins' distinctive design and three fully decorated, 3,600-square-foot-plus model homes from custom builders Tuscan-Frankel, Vantage Enterprises and Lewis & Associates are available for viewing daily. The sales center, in the clubhouse, is open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; . and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 5p.m. 66 Boca South Customizes Home Design Special to Th Post BOCA RATON - Boca South, the custom-home community in Boca Del Mar, is offering luxury estates built to accommodate the preferences of Boca Raton's discriminating home buyers.
