Palm Beach County records show that the 1.65-acre property, at 11680 Turtle Beach Road, sold to Elissa Raethe Kovas, of the Raether 1997 Long Term Trust, in the care of KKR Financial Services. Raethe Kovas was a media consultant and is now a co-designer behind the line ShellKare, a clothing line.

She’s also the daughter of Paul E. Raether, head of the portfolio management committee at KKR, a global investment firm; and is married to Edward A. Kovas, according to a 1997 New York Times wedding announcement. Kovas was then listed as an analyst at Bear Stearns & Co.

It was listed for $20 million and had been on the market for 66 days.

McLaughlin Body Co., a Molline, Illinois-based company, sold the waterfront four-bedroom, four-bathroom home. It paid $64,800 for the property in 1977, according to Palm Beach County property records. CEO Thomas L. McLaughlin signed the deed transfer.
