UPDATED, April 1, 11:35 a.m.: The former president and CEO of the mortgage servicing company Ditech Holdings Corp. snagged a waterfront home in Boca Raton for $7 million.
Thomas F. Marano bought the 11,264-square-foot house at 1281 Spanish River Road for $621 per square foot, records show. Richard and Diane Templer sold the property.
The gated home has 210 feet of water frontage and has a pool and patio with a spa, cabana and loggia. It was built in 2000 and sits on 1.56 acres.
Richard Templer owns the thoroughbred racing stable Doubledown Stables. In October, the Templers purchased a new 8,912-square-foot home at 190 Northeast 5th Avenue in Boca Raton for $12.2 million.
Carmen D’Angelo and Joe Liguori of Premier Estate Properties represented the buyer and the seller in the transaction at 1281 Spanish River Road. D’Angelo and Liguori also represented both sides of the sale of the property at 190 Northeast 5th Avenue.

The company filed for bankruptcy twice in 14 months and sold most of its assets to New Residential Investment Corp. for $1.2 billion in October, according to the news publication HousingWire.
