A Jordanian princess with a second degree black belt in taekwondo sold her waterfront Palm Beach home for $45.4 million.

Property records show Alia Bint Hussein, the oldest child of Hussein bin Talal, the former King of Jordan who reigned from 1952 to 1999, sold the waterfront house at 1330 North Lake Way. She sold it through Sherouq, a Delaware company that she leads.

The buyer is 1330 NLW, also a Delaware company with a Wilmington address, records show.

Princess Alia attended school in the United Kingdom — Sibton Park School in Lyminge and the Benenden School in Kent — before attending the University of Jordan in 1977. There, she received a bachelor’s degree in English literature, according to published reports.

She also holds a second degree black belt in taekwondo and is an equestrian, according to published reports. She leads a foundation in her own name that undertakes projects aimed at helping the environment, according to her foundation’s website.

The 7,048-square-foot, seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom, one-half bathroom home sits on three-quarters of an acre and has 138 feet of water frontage, according to Realtor.com. The house was built in 1996 and sits along the Intracoastal Waterway, records show.

The property has been transferred several times through trusts over the past several decades, records show.

It was listed last month for $48.8 million. Shelly Newman with William Raveis South Florida had the listing, and Christopher Leavitt with Douglas Elliman represented the buyer. Leavitt declined to discuss details of the deal.

Palm Beach has enjoyed a robust luxury housing market throughout the pandemic. Multiple high-profile sales have closed this month alone.

Fox News host and political correspondent Bret Baier bought a home from fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo Hilfiger, for $12 million. And the retired chairman of Mellon Financial Services bought a house for $14.5 million from the former CEO of a space technologies company.

Also, a scion of the Willow Grove, Pennsylvania-based Asplundh tree trimming company sold her Palm Beach home for $6.5 million.
