The CEO of a Connecticut-based healthcare company LifeCare bought a Gulf Stream waterfront home for $8.5 million.

Peter Burki and his wife, Siri, bought the 5,603-square-foot home at 2801 North Ocean Boulevard for $1,517 per square foot, records show. The Burkis purchased the home from Betty Brown Vander Walk, who bought the property with her husband in 1991 for $1.1 million.

The house has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms and was built in 1993.

Burki co-founded LifeCare in 1984 in Westport, Connecticut to help employees manage their childcare needs. It offers a number of work-life products for employers and has a membership base of 100 million, according to its website.

A number of wealthy buyers are migrating from New York and Connecticut to Florida to take advantage of the state’s beneficial tax laws. The new federal tax law further limits the deductions for state and local taxes, meaning wealthy individuals in high-tax states in the Northeast owe more to the Internal Revenue Service.

Other wealthy investors have bought property in the quiet oceanfront town of Gulf Stream, with some looking to build new homes. In May, Peter Lampl, a British private equity CEO, sold his Gulf Stream estate at 3545 North Ocean Boulevard for $14.25 million to a San Fransisco-based company.
