Records show the Millars purchased the house in 2006 for $7.6 million. Sherry Millar transferred ownership to a trust in her name in March.
Palm Beach County property records show the home has five bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms. The 6,498-square-foot house was built in 1997 on a 0.7-acre, oceanfront lot.
