Owners of private school sell waterfront Miami Beach estate for $26M

David and Leila Centner’s Centner Development sold a waterfront spec mansion in Miami Beach for $26 million.

The Centners, the controversial owners of a private school in the Miami Design District, sold the estate at 5465 Pine Tree Drive to Nicholas and Susan Maounis, property records show. Nicholas Maounis founded Amaranth Advisors hedge fund and is CEO of Greenwich, Connecticut-based Verition Fund Management.

The 11,000-square-foot, 10-bedroom, 14-bathroom mansion was completed earlier this year. Centner Development hired builder Andrea D’Alessio of The Inspirata Group to build the estate, according to a press release. D’Alessio, who is also an agent with RE/MAX 360 Real Estate, was the listing agent. Ryan Mendell with Maxwell E. Realty represented the buyers.

Mendell declined to comment. D’Alessio could not be reached for comment.

The Centners paid $8 million for the half-acre lot in 2017. It has about 125 feet of water frontage, a dock and new seawall.

The property now includes a gym, media room, elevator, a 2,000-square-foot pool, three-story pool tower, and 2,000 square feet of balconies and mirandas, according to the release.

The Centners paid $28.3 million for a waterfront home on Miami Beach’s Palm Island in August. About the same time, they sold two waterfront properties also on Pine Tree Drive to Russell Weiner , the billionaire founder of Rockstar Energy Drink, for more than $35 million.
