The owner of Epicure and his wife have sold their Bay Harbor Islands home for a neighborhood record of $4.85 million.

Jason and Diana Starkman sold the six-bedroom, 6,712-square-foot home at 10031 West Broadview Drive on Tuesday, listing agent Chad Carroll of the Carroll Team told The Real Deal.

The deal of the nearly half-acre property marks a record for dry lots in Bay Harbor Islands. The record was previously held by the home at 9737 West Broadview Drive, which sold for $2.35 million in February of last year, Carroll said.

Carroll, of Douglas Elliman, took the listing over about a month ago and increased the price to nearly $5.5 million. It sold to a Northeastern buyer whom he declined to disclose. Shaun Malvin of Luxe Realty Group represented the buyer.

“Dry lots have become in high demand across all of South Florida because there are very few nice homes on the water for under $5 million,” he told TRD. The majority of luxury buyers are looking for single-family homes between $3 million and $5 million, Carroll said.

The estate features a tennis court, full sauna and gym, and an infinity-edge pool. Property records show it was built in 1950, and the home includes Viking kitchen appliances, onyx and marble floors, and a Creston sound and security systems. The deal breaks down to $723 per square foot.

Carroll said the Starkmans wanted a different lifestyle and change of scenery. They paid $1 million for the property in 2008, records show. Epicure is a gourmet deli, cafe and grocery store in Miami Beach and Aventura.

Their former neighborhood, which is tucked between Surfside and Bal Harbour, is undergoing significant redevelopment. Earlier this year, The Real Deal took a deep dive into Bay Harbor Islands, which was once home to the largest concentration of mid-century Miami Modern-style architecture in the country.
