Chad Gray of Coldwell Banker listed the property. The asking price was $8.5 million, but even at its $7 million closing, the sale was the highest in the neighborhood since 2009.

“This home was built in 2013 with high-quality finishings, custom décor and design, breathtaking views and contemporary architecture, which is very much in demand,” Gray said in a statement.

The property was owned by a revocable trust in the name of Gary Palmer, who purchased the land in 2009. The buyer’s identity was not disclosed, and the sale has not yet been recorded in Broward County records.
