The double-penthouse at the Mizner Grand

An 8,500-square-foot double-penthouse unit at the Mizner Grand condominium in Boca Raton has been sold for $6.29 million, according to a warranty deed filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court Jan. 26.

Boca Raton residents Merle Wood, III and M. Claire Whipple purchased the unit from Barry Halperin, who converted two penthouse units into one when he purchased them in 1999. The Mizner Grand is located at 550 SE 5th Street in Boca Raton.

“It was one of the most spectacular apartments I’ve ever seen,” said Scott Karp, director of the Ultra-Luxury Condo Division at Premier Estate Properties, who handled both sides of the deal. “It’s a very interesting property, and the only double residence in the building.”
