Developers John Flynn Sr. and Leona Flynn just sold their Palm Beach estate for nearly $13 million, a few months after buying a smaller home from Apple’s former CEO.

The Flynns sold their 7,316-square-foot house at 300 Ridgeview Drive to Harvey C. Jones Jr., a trustee of H.C. Jones Living Trust, according to property records. Jones is a managing partner at Square Wave Ventures, a private investment firm. He purchased the house for $1,773 per square foot.

The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom house is near the Palm Beach Country Club. The Flynns paid $2.4 million for the half-acre lot in 2006 and built the home two years later.

The Flynns own a Dublin-based development company with a portfolio of projects in Ireland and England. The couple recently bought a nearly 4,000-square-foot house at 127 Reef Road in Palm Beach for $6 million in April 2018. It was formerly owned by ex-Apple CEO John Sculley and his wife Diane.

Waterfront Properties and Club Communities agents Toni Hollis and Gloria More had the Ridgeview Drive home on the market for $15 million. Todd Peter of Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
