A fashion mogul just sold his home in Coconut Grove for a non-waterfront record of $7.5 million.

A Brazilian family from Key Biscayne purchased the mansion at 4020 Kiaora Street in Miami, a Compass spokesperson told The Real Deal. Property records show the seller is Marco Frachesen, a former head of Fendi and owner of luxury retailer Merak.

The sale beats the previous record that was set in May, when the son of former Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon sold his non-waterfront Grove home for $5.08 million. That deal still holds the per-square-foot record.

Ben Moss of Compass represented the seller, and Juliana Pereira of Ansasi Realty represented the buyer.

The property, a 14,000-square-foot, eight-bedroom mansion, was built by Frachesen in 2004. It sits on a nearly 37,000-square-foot lot about two streets west of the bay. Records show Frachesen paid $1.75 million for the property in 2002.

Moss re-listed the home in July for $7.95 million. “It had been listed before at a price that was, frankly, unrealistic,” he said. It was previously asking $10.9 million.

Frachesen sold the house with a tenant in place through December of this year. It’s being rented for $45,000 a month, and includes a heated pool, a 5,000-bottle wine cellar, and a home theater.

South Florida, and the home, “dodged a major bullet” with Hurricane Irma, Moss said. Most of his scheduled closings throughout the state have been pushed back. The Grove property, which features a 100-foot banyan tree and full-house generator, was not affected by the storm.

The sale closed on Thursday, about a week after its initial closing date.
