A 21,000-square-foot megahome in South Florida is the most expensive beachless home in Delray Beach ever to sell, and its selling price of $ 19 million makes it the city’s best-selling in more than three years, according to MLS.
“Resort style living is a driving force in the ultra-luxury market,” listing agent Senada Adzem told TBEN, “People are rethinking their lifestyles – their wants and needs – as a result of the pandemic. “

The property, known as the Rockybrook estate, was initially listed at $ 23.5 million in May amid the pandemic. Adzem says that during its first month on the market, the house could only be visited virtually because of Covid-19. The price was reduced to just over $ 21.9 million before selling for $ 19 million earlier this month.
According to MLS, last year’s most expensive sale in Delray Beach was $ 17 million for 9200 Rockybrook Way, known as the Sundara estate. The 18,000-square-foot mansion was also represented by Adzem whose team achieved more than $ 200 million in sales during the pandemic, which was his team’s best year, according to real estate brokerage firm Douglas Elliman. ..
The Rockybrook Estate, which is located just off Sundara at 9192 Rockybrook Way, features seven bedrooms and 14 bathrooms located on a 2.5 acre lot located in a private community called Stone Creek Ranch. The closed neighborhood has a total of 37 estates and is located approximately twenty miles south of Palm Beach and fifty miles north of Miami
