Green bought the house for $4.3 million in 2015, the year it was built, according to records. The nearly 8,000-square-foot mansion sits on 0.6 acres and spans seven bedrooms, seven full-bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms, according to the listing. The estate features 100 feet of waterfront and a private dock that can accommodate a 70-foot long boat. The home also includes an elevator, saltwater pool and outdoor kitchen, the listing shows.

The property is within the private boating community Frenchman’s Harbor, a gated development of 48 homes, each with water frontage and a private dock. The community was developed by the Pennsylvania-based Toll Brothers and completed construction in 2015. Robert Toll, one of the firm’s founding brothers, died in October.
