Douglas Cramer, the prolific producer behind television greats including “The Brady Bunch,” “Dynasty” and “Star Trek,” has just sold his mansion on Miami Beach’s ultra exclusive La Gorce Island for a hair over $23 million.
The waterfront property quietly changed hands in an off-market deal that was recorded in Miami-Dade County property records on Tuesday.
The producer, 89, and his husband, artist Hugh Bush, have owned the home since 2010 when they bought it for $7.4 million, records show.
Due to the hush-hush nature of the sale, details on the property are scarce.
Previous listings show the four-bedroom home was built in 1937 and spans 8,235 square feet.
The deal was handled by Douglas Elliman agents on all sides. Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon represented Mr. Cramer and Mr. Bush, and Brett Harris represented the buyer. All, through a representative, declined to comment on the transaction.
The new owner, who could not be reached for comment, is an investment manager.
Despite the sale, Mr. Cramer and Mr. Bush will remain local. The pair dropped $8 million on another waterfront home in Miami’s upscale Morningside neighborhood, property records show.
The pair, who could not be reached for comment, are also trying to part with a New York City apartment within the famed River House building on the Upper East Side, having listed the co-op in November for $4.85 million.
Demand for South Florida’s high-end single-family homes have reached a fever pitch of late with their popularity being underpinned by a wealth of factors, including record-low interest rates, an increasing number of homebuyers ditching tax-burdened northeastern states, and the prevalence of work-from-home and remote-learning policies.
In December, the number of luxury single-family homes—defined as those priced at $1 million and up—that sold in Miami-Dade County soared 108.5% year-over-year.
The Real Deal first reported the sale.
