Palm Beach just saw another residential sale top $100 million, according to the price recorded with the deed for a sea-to-lake estate at 1840 S. Ocean Blvd.

Seasonal resident Dr. Ernst Langner, who has ties to Hamburg, Germany, sold for a recorded $109.625 million the estate he and his wife, Nataly, built on the south end of Billionaires Row.

The sale price is the second-highest Palm Beach residential transaction ever documented at the Palm Beach County Courthouse.

The sale price trailed the recorded price of a February sale across town, in which a never-lived-in house developed on speculation at 535 N. County Road sold for a recorded $122.65 million — a price that likely set a state record for a single seller/single buyer residential sale. 

The sale logged this week is the second deal within two months to hit $95 million, courthouse records show. In a deal recorded May 19 at $95 million, an oceanfront mansion at 1341 S. Ocean Blvd. sold on the same stretch of coastal road as the former Langner estate.
