Longtime film and television producer Douglas Cramer bought a waterfront home in Miami’s Morningside for $8.1 million, setting an all-time record for the neighborhood.

Cramer and his husband Hubert Bush bought the house at 5901 North Bayshore Drive from Bruce Alan and Leslie Lara Weil, records show.

Cramer helped produce popular television series like “Dynasty” and “The Love Boat.”

Bruce Alan Weil is a partner at the law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP. He paid $475,000 for the home in 1995. Weil renovated and expanded the house, which was built in 1942.

The $8.1 million sale beats a previous record of $6.4 million for 5701 North Bayshore Drive, which traded in 2013.

The Weils listed their home in November for $9 million with Nelson Gonzalez of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices EWM Realty represented the Weils, while Esther Percal of the same brokerage represented Cramer. Gonzalez declined to comment on the deal.

The four-bedroom, four-bedroom has 4,616 square feet of living space on an over 30,000-square-foot lot. The property also features 100 square feet of water frontage with a dock.

Morningside is north of Bay Point and near the MiMo District. In November, a waterfront home site in Bay Point sold for $5.7 million.

In early 2019, Venezuelan developers filed plans for a live-work mixed-use building in Morningside.
