The widow of Daniel Borislow, the inventor of MagicJack, unloaded her oceanfront mansion in Palm Beach for $19.5 million, more than a year after first putting it on the market. Add on another $2 million for the furnishings and stocked wine cellar, according to the listing agent.

The nearly 10,000-square-foot manse at 1045 South Ocean Boulevard traded hands for about $1,950 per square for, property records show. The buyer is investment firm manager and founder Lionel Kerrin Vickar. He is the former chief executive of CorrFlex, and co-founded investment management firm, VSTH Capital.

Michele Borislow put the property on the market in July 2016, asking $27.5 million. The listing agent was Traci DeGeorge of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities. The property fetched $8.9 million in 2004.

The price was dropped to $25 million in November. DeGeorge said the home sold for an unrecorded price of $21.25 million, which includes furnishings and a wine cellar stocked with the Borislow’s collection. Wally Turner of Sotheby’s International Realty brought the buyer.
