A renovated historic house with a separate cottage has changed hands for about $4.2 million, according to the deed recorded this month in the off-the-market sale of 134 Chilean Ave.

The buyers were William Henry and Hillary Jane Weldon of New Vernon, N.J., according to the deed recorded on Oct. 3. Corcoran Group agent Heather Bretzlaff, who acted for the Weldons, did not have any comment on the deal.

The two buildings — one dating from 1912 and the other from 1920 — were sold by Kranzburg Corp., a company registered in Panama. Agent Beatriz Llaneza of High Rise Properties Real Estate in Wellington wouldn’t comment about her clients, other than to say the family used the property for vacations.

The family paid $1.7 million for the property in May 2011 in a deal that saw Llaneza opposite agent Anne M. Surovek of Brown Harris Stevens, who was acting for the seller, the Ritterbush family.

Llaneza’s clients then undertook their top-to-bottom update, which was designed by architect Harold Smith of Smith and Moore Architects and completed in 2012. Interior designer Veronica Volani-Inza handled the redecoration and won two awards for the project from the Florida chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers.

The transformation of the four-bedroom house and one-bedroom guesthouse was featured this summer in Coastal Living magazine. The renovation included faux finishes and the installation travertine flooring, impact-resistant French doors, and a new kitchen and bathrooms.

Both buildings total about 4,300 square feet. The lot is narrow, measuring less than a fifth of an acre in the middle of Chilean Avenue’s ocean block, a couple of blocks north of Worth Avenue.

New York attorney David C. Camerini signed the deed as treasurer of Kranzburg Corp. Camerini is a partner in the law firm of Fox, Horan & Camerini and specializes in working with Latin American clients, according to the company’s website.
