Motivational speaker and life coach Anthony “Tony” Robbins purchased an oceanfront home at 750 South Ocean Boulevard in Manalapan for $24.75 million, according to a statement released today by the sponsor’s broker. This marks the second-highest price paid for a Palm Beach County home outside the town of Palm Beach, the statement said. The Corcoran Group’s Jim McCann represented the developer, called only 750 South Ocean.
“This was the only brand new home on the direct ocean in Palm Beach County available for purchase, and as soon as it hit the market there was a high level of interest,” McCann said in the statement.
The developer, a Palm Beach real estate family, is also building a mansion on the adjacent property at 800 South Ocean Boulevard that they had planned on keeping for their own use. However, the near record-setting sale has the family rethinking things.
Robbins’ new Georgian style home has more than 11,000-square feet of living space on two acres and spans all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway.
McCann said that the 800 South Ocean property should be complete in about 45 days, but whether or not the developer chooses to sell remains to be seen. — Evan Bleier
