Yvonne Gibb, the widow of Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees, sold her waterfront Golden Beach home for $5.1 million.

Dalia and Steve Berman bought the 6,729-square-foot house at 516 North Parkway in an off-market deal, said Sue Honowitz of Rusty Stein & Co. Steve, a developer, is president and CEO of Hollywood-based Firm Realty, according to his LinkedIn.

The sale price equates to $758 per square foot. Honowitz represented the seller and buyer.

The five-bedroom, six-bathroom home sits on a 17,000-square-foot lot. It has 100 feet of water frontage on the Intracoastal Waterway and a three-car garage.

Gibb paid $5 million for the home in 2006, records show. It was built in 2001.

Maurice Gibb died in 2003 at age 53 at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach of complications from a twisted intestine. He was known as “The Quiet One” in the band he shared with his brothers, late twin Robin and brother Barry. Maurice married Yvonne in 1975 and they had two children, according to published reports.

Golden Beach is home to such celebrities as Bruce Weber and Tommy Hilfiger. Residents of the exclusive waterfront enclave in north Miami-Dade have access to a private beach.

In late October, Carl Icahn’s stepdaughter and her husband, an executive at the corporate raider’s investment firm, paid $7.3 million for a new waterfront house in Golden Beach. A trust tied to Hunter Gary and his wife Shana purchased the 7,981-square-foot home at 301 Center Island Drive.

The same month, an 11,600-square-foot oceanfront estate at 387 Ocean Boulevard in Golden Beach sold for $19 million.

In September, billionaire real estate developer Ben Ashkenazy listed a 35,000-square-foot oceanfront lot in Golden Beach for $11 million.
