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.

The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home was previously owned by the widow of William Todman of Goodson-Todman Productions. It produced the popular TV shows, “What’s My Line?,” “Password,” and “The Price Is Right.”

It features 227 feet of ocean frontage, and includes a vacant lot on the north side of the house, where Daniel Borislow, an avid soccer fan, used to play. He died in 2014 at age 52 while playing soccer in Jupiter.

In January, Michele Borislow bought a planned house on the southwest corner of North County Road and Via Linda in Palm Beach for $7.1 million.
