On Friday, February 12, the most important real estate transaction in Florida and one of the most outstanding in the country was completed, with the sale of an incredible mansion for $ 122,695,000, the highest figure ever paid for a house in the area from Palm Beach.
With its sale, it far exceeded what, until now, had been the most expensive house in the history of the area, the one that belonged to beauty mogul Sydell Miller and who sold it, in December 2019, for $ 105,000,000 dollars.
The property in question, which was launched on the market last January for $ 140,000,000, was built on land that belonged, until 2008, to former President Donald Trump.

History of the mansion
In 2008, Melania Trump’s husband sold one of his Palm Beach mansions to Russian tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev for $ 95,000,000.
Dmitry decided to tear it down in 2016 and divide it into three properties to later launch them for sale. In total, he received $ 108,740,000 for the three sites.
One of the lots was bought, in 2018, for $ 37,000,000, which is where the house that just shaken the real estate market was built.
