Shortly after selling his historic Palm Beach home, Richard Wackenhut bought a mansion in Boca Raton’s Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club for $12.8 million.
Records show Wackenhut, an heir to the security firm founder George Wackenhut, purchased the home at 191 West Key Palm Road from Lisa J. Leder as trustee of The Lisa J. Leder Revocable Trust.
Wackenhut and his wife, Marie, sold their 6,525-square-foot home in Palm Beach for $17.9 million earlier this month.
Leder is the founder and president of Boca Raton-based Best Properties LLC, a real estate firm. Her ex-husband, Marc J. Leder, is the co-founder of private equity firm Sun Capital Partners.
Property records show Leder, under The Centre V Revocable Trust, purchased the mansion for $9.2 million in 2011. It was built in 2010.
The 10,367-square-foot house, on a half-acre lot, has seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. The property also features 150 feet of waterfront and deepwater dockage, according to the listing.
The home hit the market in October, asking $13.5 million. Senada Adzem Schweitzer with Douglas Elliman represented Leder, while Lawrence Moens of Lawrence A. Moens Associates represented Wackenhut.
Among other recent sales in the Royal Palm Yacht & Country Club, the owner of a real estate company in Boston sold a waterfront spec home for $12.5 million, and the former CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald sold a mansion for $9.4 million.
