The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home spans 7,900 square feet under air and 11,000 square feet including terraces and garage space, according to property records. It sold for $1,100 per square foot based on under-air space.

The four-story home was listed for $9.96 million. The beachfront home was designed by Delray Beach-based Randall Stofft Architecture and Marc-Michaels Interior Design, based in Boca Raton. It features marble and wood floors, a fireplace, pool, Jacuzzi, cabana, covered patio and access to the beach.
