Brian Stafford and Celine Dufetel, c-suite executives at different companies, bought a Venetian Islands mansion for $12.8 million.

Records show the married couple bought the 8,209-square-foot waterfront house at 436 West Rivo Alto Drive in Miami Beach from Natasha Dubarry.

Dubarry is the former wife of luxury watchmaker Franck Dubarry who created TechnoMarine and later the watch brand Franck Dubarry. Records show the two bought the property for $2.8 million in 2001, and the mansion was built in 2006. Natasha was granted the home in a marital settlement agreement in 2011.

Julian Johnston with the Corcoran Group had the listing. The house first hit the market in 2018 for $17.9 million. After a few price drops over the years, it was last listed for $14.8 million in July.

The six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom home has 210 feet of water frontage and a pool.

Stafford is the president and CEO of Diligent Corp., a software service company. He has held the position since 2015, according to Diligent’s website.

Dufetel is the CFO at investment management company T. Rowe Price. Dufetel was recently named to Fortune’s 40 Under 40 list in the finance category.

The sale is one of many on the Venetian Islands in recent months. Among them, a Brazilian billionaire sold a Venetian Islands waterfront home for $10.2 million, a former Ford executive sold his estate for $18 million and a group of developers sold a spec mansion for $13.6 million.
