A son of the late Philadelphia media mogul and philanthropist H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest sold his waterfront home site in Jupiter.
Property records show 107 Quayside Drive LLC, led by Brook Lenfest, sold the lot at 107 Quayside Drive to Lisa McElhone. The 0.4-acre property sold for $5.8 million.
The listing advertised the property as a custom home site for a 6,000-square-foot house with custom cabinets, marble floors, a chef’s kitchen and a first-floor master suite. According to property records, the seller demolished the previous home in 2018 and filed a notice of commencement for a new house shortly thereafter.
Rob Thomson of Waterfront Properties & Club Communities represented the seller, and Eric Ditri of the same brokerage brought the buyer, according to Realtor.com.
Brook Lenfest’s father, Gerry, and Gerry’s wife, Marguerite Brooks Lenfest, sold their company Suburban Cable to Comcast in 2000 for about $1.2 billion. They gave away the majority of their fortune to schools, museums, the arts and journalism, according to the Washington Post. Gerry and a partner paid $88 million for the Philadelphia Daily News and Philly.com in 2014. Lenfest donated the publications to a nonprofit four years later.
Brook, one of three children, is president and CEO of NetCarrier, a national provider of cloud-based voice and data services.
Records show Brook’s entity paid $2 million for the Jupiter property in 2016. It’s part of the gated Admirals Cove community.
Earlier this year, former Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Jamie McCourt bought her Admirals Cove home for $8 million.
