Investor and entrepreneur Richard A. Chaifetz picked up an oceanfront Delray Beach estate for $34 million.

Palm Beach County records show Chaifetz, founder of the Chicago-based Chaifetz Group, bought the 31,786-square-foot mansion at 921 South Ocean Boulevard. The 1.7-acre property includes seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms and five half-baths. It was listed for sale at $39.95 million in January, according to Realtor.com.

Chaifetz bought the home through a revocable trust, records show. 921 South Ocean Boulevard LLC, managed by president and real estate attorney Cristofer A. Bennardo, is the seller. The Boca Raton-based firm paid $9.3 million for the property in 2010.

The waterfront property was developed in 2013 and includes a home theater, reflection ponds, a pool, spa, fountain, outdoor fireplace, balconies and more than 155 feet of oceanfront.

Chaifetz is also a licensed neuropsychologist and philanthropist. He’s also founder and chairman of Chicago-based ComPsych Corporation, a provider of employee assistance programs.

Delray Beach has attracted high-profile sales and listings in recent months. Actor and comedian Kevin James put his Delray Beach estate on the market for $29 million. James listed the waterfront 2.8-acre home at 502 North Ocean Boulevard in February. Also that month, a co-developer of Miami Worldcenter bought the property nearby to Chaifetz, also an oceanfront estate, at 901 South Ocean Boulevard.
