4995 Hammock Lake Drive and Andy Ansin

Developer Andy Ansin, son of media billionaire Edmund Ansin, just sold a spec home he co-developed with Jomed Construction for $7.9 million.

Property records show Hammock Lake LLC, led by Andy Ansin and Jomed, sold the seven-bedroom, roughly 11,000-square-foot mansion at 4995 Hammock Lake Drive to a trust controlled by attorney Scott J Perdigon. The 4995 Hammock Lake Drive Trust financed the deal with a $5 million mortgage from Iberiabank.

Dennis Carvajal of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer and seller, according to a spokesperson. It hit the market in 2016 for $9.25 million, which means it sold at a 15 percent discount, and was later relisted for nearly $8.5 million in February.

The lakefront estate sits on a 40,500-square-foot lot with an infinity edge pool and Jacuzzi, a guest home, home theater, outdoor fireplace, wraparound terrace and summer kitchen. Hammock Lake is west of the Old Cutler neighborhood.

Edmund Ansin owns South Florida television station WSVN-Channel 7. Andy Ansin runs the Miramar Park of Commerce, a business park with five million square feet of industrial space. Last week, the Ansin family paid $14 million for a nearly 29-acre development site in Miramar with no immediate plans for the land.

Andy Ansin also paid $8 million in 2015 for a waterfront lot on Sunset Island I in Miami Beach.
