Hilary Grinker Musser and her husband, Gene Thomas Bishop, have sold Casa Bella at 137 Woodbridge Road, for $6.25 million to New York liqueur entrepreneur Raphael Yakoby, according to recently filed court papers.

Listed for $7.4 million, Casa Bella’s seller was represented by Carole Koeppel, broker-associate, and Brett Koeppel, realtor associate, with Sotheby’s International Realty Inc.

“Sotheby’s marketed the property internationally to a great response, resulting in serious activity and a relatively short selling time,” Carol Koeppel said.

Maureen R. Woodward, realtor associate with Brown Harris Stevens, represented the buyer.

The market is “off to the races,” she said. “The house behind Casa Bella on Kings Road has a pending and I told my client timing is everything.”

Musser purchased the 8,000-square-foot Mediterranean-style house in 2005 for $6 million. The five-bedroom, two-story house features deeded beach access, a three-car garage and a Mar-A-Lago Club membership.

Yakoby is the creator of Hpnotiq, the first blue liqueur, and more recently Nuvo, a pink cocktail aimed at women.

In a related sale, Musser bought an 8,000-square-foot waterfront house at 5615 S. Flagler Drive in West Palm Beach for $2.97 million.

According to available sources, the asking price for 5615 S. Flagler was $3.48 million; it previously sold in 2005 for $3.48 million, and in August 2010 for $4.18 million.
