A retired aviation chief sold his waterfront Admirals Cove home in Jupiter for $11 million.

Harry “Sonny” Berry and his wife Eileen Berry sold their mansion at 109 Schooner Lane to Michael Coughlin, records show.

Harry is the founder of Berry Aviation, a private aviation company headquartered in San Marcos, Texas. Berry Aviation contracts for private charters and government aviation work. The company made headlines in 2017 for its involvement in a military evacuation in Niger that went awry, CNN reported.

The Berrys bought the half acre property for $6.9 million in 2019, records show. Built in 2016, the home spans more than 9,600 square feet, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. The property also includes a pool, outdoor kitchen and private dock.

The property is set in a gated yachting community. Admirals Cove includes a Golf Club and a Marina & Yacht Club that residents can join for access to a golf course, spa, restaurant and mega yacht facilities.

Northern Palm Beach County, which includes Admirals Cove, has experienced a boom in recent years. Pandemic migration and record prices in Palm Beach sent buyers northward, driving a price surge in areas like Admirals Cove and Palm Beach Gardens.

Last month, a real estate CEO from New York bought a home in the gated community for $8.5 million.

Billionaire CEO of Atlanta-based FleetCor Technologies Ronald Clarke bought the mansion next door to his waterfront home for $15.7 million in September. Retired insurance titan Leonard Abramson sold his mansion for $7 million in August.
