Multifamily investor Robbins Property Associates has been snapping up properties across Palm Beach County.

Now one of its co-founders bought a home in Boca Raton’s Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club for $5.5 million. Mitchell Robbins purchased the 7,997-square-foot house at 461 South Maya Palm Drive for $687 per square foot, records show.

Built in 2016, the home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.

The property sold at a slight loss from its previous sales price in 2016, when Robert Noble bought the property for $5.82 million.
