The widow of National Enquirer founder Generoso Pope paid $16.2 million for a massive Manalapan home, The Real Deal has learned.

RDV Properties sold the 1720 South Ocean Boulevard mansion to Lois Pope on May 16, according to Palm Beach County records. The Grand Rapids, Mich.-based company paid about $7.4 million for the 2.55-acre property in 1999. Jeffrey Lambert signed the deed as RDV’s chief financial officer.

The county recorded the sale on Wednesday. Pope did not obtain financing for the purchase.

RDV constructed the nearly 33,000-square-foot manse in 2004. The home has seven bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. Property features include a guest house, heated pool and four-car garage.

The mansion was listed with an asking price of about $20 million. Pascal Liguori of Premier Estate Properties was the listing agent.

Pope also owns a high-end home in Delray Beach. She operates several philanthropic organizations through her Lois Pope Life Foundation.

Generoso Pope died in 1988.
