A former Playboy Playmate of the Month snagged a waterfront home in Tequesta for $3.1 million, sources told The Real Deal.

Karin Taylor purchased the 6,524-square-foot house at 8818 Southeast Riverfront Terrace for $475 per square foot. David and Lisa Hyman sold the property, records show.

Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties represented the buyer and seller. Thomson declined to comment on the sale.

The house was built in 1990 and has six bedrooms and five-and-a-half baths, according to Realtor.com. It last sold for $2.1 million in 2018, records show.

The custom home, on a 0.85-acre lot, has 330 feet of shoreline and is across from Jonathan Dickinson Preserve. Amenities include a pool, spa and dock equipped with a boat lift and jet ski, according to a listing on Realtor.com.

Taylor was formerly an international model and Playboy magazine’s June 1996 Playmate of the Month. She currently runs a philanthropy for at-risk youth through equestrian therapy programs, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Court documents show she is in the midst of a divorce from husband Bill Weisberg, chairman and CEO of Affiliated Distributors, a Wayne, Pennsylvania-based distribution and manufacturing company.

Tequesta is a small town just north of Jupiter, which has seen an influx of high-end buyers, including Washington National pitcher Max Scherzer’s purchase of a $9.8 million mansion in Jupiter’s Admiral’s Cove neighborhood.
