Manalapan estate with oceanside mansion goes for $28 million: deed

The sale of the sea-to-lake property at 1160 S. Ocean Blvd. is one of several sizable deals recorded this year in Manalapan.

Another sizable ocean-to-lake sale — this one recorded at $28 million — has closed in Manalapan, the wealthy town south of Palm Beach that has seen an unusually active real estate market over the past several months.

Changing hands via a deed recorded Monday was a seven-bedroom, 26-year-old mansion at 1160 S. Ocean Blvd.

The bulk of the property fronts the ocean with 160 feet of direct shoreline. The coastal road separates the seaside portion estate from a narrow parcel with another 160 feet of frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway. The property totals about 1.7 acres.

The identity of the buyer was not immediately available in the preliminary information about the sale posted on the Palm Beach County Clerk’s website.

The seller was apparently a Florida limited liability company managed by Michael Cantor. Property records show he took possession of the property in December 2016 from the estate of his late father, New Jersey real estate investor Edward A. Cantor, who died in 2002. His will left Michael Cantor an estate valued at about $90 million, primarily derived from the commercial and industrial properties that Edward Cantor owned through various companies, court records show.

The elder Cantor paid about $1 million for the Manalapan property in 1987, according to property records. Conference room
