The mansion at 921 S. Ocean Blvd. in Delray Beach just sold for $34 million, a new record for Delray.
The buyer is Richard A. Chaifetz, a Chicago investor and philanthropist. The estate — which includes a 33,571-square-foot house on 1.7 acres — was on the market for $39.95 million.
The previous high-water mark in Delray came last year, when 901 S. Ocean sold for $19 million.
Palm Beach County’s mansion market has been on a tear. A $13.6 million sale last month in Ocean Ridge set a new record there, and a $33 million deal in Manalapan in September was the highest ever in that town.
