Tech entrepreneur David Centner sells Miami Beach mansion for $26M

Technology entrepreneur David Centner and his wife, Leila Centner, who heads a private school, sold a new mansion along the water in Miami Beach for $26 million.

The 11,000-square-foot home at 5465 Pine Tree Drive was purchased by Susan and Nicholas Maounis of Jupiter. Andrea Dalessio brokered the deal for the seller through Re/Max 360 Real Estate and also designed and developed the home through his company, Inspirata Group. The buyer worked with Ryan Mendell of Maxwell E Realty. The price equated to $2,364 a square foot.

Situated on a 21,156-square-foot lot along a canal leading to the Intracoastal Waterway, the home was built in an authentic Italian Mediterranean style, Dalessio said.

Italian native Dalessio said many of the components used to build the home were manufactured by hand in Italy, including the teal roof tiles. In addition to the 10 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms, it features a dine-in kitchen with a 28-seat bar, a 2,000-square-foot pool, a balcony and a dock.

Dalessio said the Centners were building the home for their family, but things changed and they decided to sell it.

The Centners still own a condo in both Miami Beach and Miami.

The website for David Centner Enterprises is dedicated to Centner and his career accomplishments including founding Highway Toll Administration before selling it to a private equity firm in 2018. Since moving to Miami Beach with his venture capital firm, he and his wife also founded the Centner Academy private school.

In August 2021, a trust connected to the Centners sold several home sites in Miami Beach to Rockstar Energy founder Russell Weiner , another deal brokered by Dalessio. In October 2021, a firm connected to the Centners purchased 150.6 acres of agricultural land in Wellington.

As for the buyer of the Miami Beach home, Nicholas Maounis is cofounder and CEO of Greenwich, Connecticut hedge fund Verition Fund Management. He is also well known as the founder of Amaranth Advisors, a hedge fund that collapsed in 2006 after losing more than $6 billion on natural gas futures.
