Master chef Eric Ripert has bid adieu to his Miami Beach condo, his listing agents told The Real Deal.

Ripert and his wife Sandra sold the 1,271-square-foot, two-bedroom unit at the Maison Grande at 6039 Collins Avenue for $412,500, according to Brown Harris Stevens Miami agents Carol Cassis and Stephan Burke. It was listed for $425,000 and sold furnished.

The French chef, author and TV personality is known for his flagship restaurant in New York City, Le Bernardin, which has been ranked among the best restaurants in the world.

Property records show the couple paid $335,000 for the condo, which is just south of North Beach, in 2013. The renovated unit includes Tui furniture and a balcony with views of the ocean.

Ripert and his family used the condo as a vacation home at least once a month, according to Cassis. It hit the market in October. Ripert will “miss morning walks and bike rides along the beach,” he said in a press release.

Juan Fernando Lavieri of Keller Williams represented the buyer. He could not immediately be reached for comment, and the listing agents declined to identify the buyer.

The oceanfront Maison Grande was developed in 1971. The 18-story building has more than 500 units, a pool and gym.
