San Lee, a trustee of the San K.J. Lee Living Trust, has sold 181 Clarendon Avenue, a landmarked Mediterranean-style 7,000-square-foot mansion, to 11 Vita Serena LLC for $11.7 million, according to a warranty deed filed with the Palm Beach County Clerk’s office.

According to the Palm Beach Daily News, the property boasts five bedrooms, an elevator, guest house and a 125-foot dock.

Wally Turner and Aeyung Park de Mel of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the seller. The buyer, 11 Vita Serena LLC, was represented by Mark Nestler and John Poletto, broker-owners of Nestler Poletto Sotheby’s International Realty Boca Raton.

The property was built in the Venetian Gothic style in 1925 for Cleveland residents Frederick and Julia Glidden and granted a 10-year tax exemption for historic properties by the town council in 2006 following architectural and engineering improvements approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
