UPDATED, Sept. 19, 5:50 p.m.: French magazine editor Jean Pierre Cohen paid $11.7 million for a home on the Venetian Islands.

Cohen, editor-in-chief of Résidences Immobilier, a luxury real estate publication, closed on 1374 South Venetian Way on San Marco Island in Miami on Tuesday, according to the agents involved in the deal. The nearly 8,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom home features a rooftop, glass-walled pool, a dock, a home theater and fireplace.

It was listed with Allan Kleer and Fabian Garcia-Diaz of One Sotheby’s International Realty for $13.9 million. The price set a record for San Marco Island, according to a release. Roy and Rachel Benmeir of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

Property records show Craig M. Dorne, acting as a trustee on behalf of the Gerald H. Goldfarb trust, is the seller. The property last sold for $6.4 million in 2013. The home was developed on a waterfront 10,500-square-foot lot in 2006.

One Sotheby’s said the home is one of a handful in Miami-Dade County to have a rooftop pool.

A number of properties have sold in the Venetian Islands in recent months to buyers who include Menin Hospitality principal Keith Menin  and developer Alex Sapir.
