Marc Laukien, the founder of the local software company ZeroC, just sold his waterfront mansion near Jupiter for $5.1 million, property records show.
Laukien sold his 9,310-square-foot home at 19307 North Riverside Drive for about $550 per square foot. His company designs tools for software developers.
Records show he paid $3.9 million for the house in 2011. It sits on nearly an acre of land north of Tequesta Drive. The buyer, Richard Theryoung, is an advertising executive affiliated with companies like Alliance Outdoor and Adventura Outdoor Advertising.
Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties and Club Communities brokered the deal. The six-bedroom, six-bathroom home hit the market in March for $6 million, which means it sold at a 15 percent discount off its original selling price. It was re-listed in September for $5.5 million, according to Redfin. Thomson was not immediately available to comment.
Exclusive communities in Jupiter have long attracted celebrities and business executives like basketball legend Michael Jordan, tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams, and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Céline Dion.
In 2014, Laukien paid $14.3 million for a bayfront Hibiscus Island home in Miami Beach.
