The Palm Beach, Fla., home of Daniel Borislow, the late inventor of MagicJack, a device that enabled voice calls over the internet, has been listed for $27.5 million.
The nearly one-acre property, with 228 feet on the ocean, boasts a unique feature: a soccer field abutting a white-sand beach.
Mr. Borislow was a soccer enthusiast. In 2011, he purchased the Washington Freedom, a team in the Women’s Professional Soccer league. He moved the team to Florida and renamed it MagicJack; he clashed in court with the league, which disbanded in 2012.
Mr. Borislow died two years ago at age 52, while playing soccer in nearby Jupiter, Fla. His wife, Michelle, who has three other homes, is listing the house with Traci DeGeorge of Waterfront Properties & Club Communities.
When the Borislows bought the property in 2005, they lived in another home just a few miles away. Ms. Borislow says they made an offer quickly, in part because it included a sizeable unbuilt lot.
Mr. Borislow “saw it and he wanted to make it into a soccer field,” she says. The family used the field frequently for sports and entertaining. She notes that this part of the lot is buildable, should a buyer wish to add to the property.
The contemporary-style house, built in 1970, measures nearly 10,000 square feet, with four bedrooms, six bathrooms and a 2,400-bottle wine-cellar. The home features nearly surrounding views of the ocean, with floor-to-ceiling, hurricane-resistant glass windows. The windows have a built-in automated cleaning system that is programmed to clean the windows daily.
