Mark Wilf, co-owner and president of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings, is the latest NFL biggie to score a property in Palm Beach.

According to public records, Wilf just bought a lakefront townhouse at Villa Plati on Ocean Avenue.

What’s a four bed, four bath run in that neighborhood of 301 Atlantic Avenue?

Wilf paid $6.975 million — cash, for course.

There are three other Villa Plati townhouses on the market ranging in price from $2.75 million to $3.4 million.

The big markup for Wilf’s new place is likely because it is one of only two lakefront residences in the fancy development, and because it’s attached to the neighbor’s place by just one wall.

Wilf, a real estate developer by trade joins a dozen or so NFL owners with homes on the island.

They include the Miami Dolphins’ Stephen Ross; New England Patriots’ Bob Kraft; Washington Redskins’Dan Snyder; the Houston Texans’ Bob McNair; the Philadelphia Eagles Jeffrey Lurie; Pittsburgh Steelers boss Art Rooney; and the families of recently deceased Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer and the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson, among others.
