The eldest son of former Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon has sold his six-bedroom mansion in Coconut Grove, Florida, for $5.082 million, a record price for a non-waterfront home in the area.
The junior Ernesto Zedillo, an architect, bought the underlying property in 2012 for less than $1 million and custom built the so-called “Hammock House,” which was completed in 2014, according to property records.
The 6,212-square-foot home sold to a South American businessman, said listing agent Michael Light of Douglas Elliman.
The Real Deal reports that the sale set a new record for non-waterfront homes in Coconut Grove, a Miami oasis for celebrities and business people. Past and president residents in the neighborhood include Sylvester Stallone, LeBron James and journalist Jorge Ramos.
The last non-waterfront record setter in the area was a Phineas Paist-designed, seven-bedroom house, which sold for $4.77 million last year, according to sales records. (That house is now selling again for nearly $7 million.)
Hammock House is located in the exclusive gated Camp Biscayne. The modern home has marble flooring throughout, a heated, 40-foot salt-water pool, hot tub and outdoor-summer kitchen, according to the listing. A living space encased in windows juts out into the lush tropical foliage of the backyard, images of the home show.
There is also a modern, window-lined guest house separate from the main residence.
