The Dutch founder of a production agency just sold his bayfront Coconut Grove mansion for $19.75 million, the highest residential sale in Miami-Dade so far this year.
3550 Matheson Ave LLC, a company controlled by a Miami attorney, paid $19.75 million in cash for the 14,000-square-foot home at 3550 Matheson Avenue. Property records show the seller is Will van der Vlugt, founder of Caramel Pictures, a production company with offices in Amsterdam, London and Miami. The price equates to about $1,400 per square foot.
Stephan Burke and Carol Cassis of Brown Harris Stevens Miami represented the buyer, whom they declined to identify. Jorge Uribe of One Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent. The home hit the market at the end of January for $22 million and the sale closed on Thursday. Uribe could not immediately be reached for comment.
Van der Vlugt paid $4 million for the 21,233-square-foot property in 2011 and completed the five-bedroom mansion in 2014. It features 350 feet of water frontage, a rooftop with a plunge pool, about 2,000 square foot of double height flex space, a five-car garage, an elevator, boat lift and a 60-foot lap pool, according to the listing. The home is in Entrada Estates, a guard-gated community.
In January, former NFL linebacker Jonathan Vilma sold his waterfront Tahiti Beach estate for $14.4 million, which now ranks as the second most expensive single-family home sale to close this year.
