The eldest son of former Mexican president Ernesto Zedillo Ponce de Leon has sold his six-bedroom mansion in Coconut Grove, Florida, for $5.082 million, a record price for a non-waterfront home in the area.
Zedillo Velasco paid $795,000 for the 18,633-square-foot lot in 2012, and built the six-bedroom, seven-and-a-half-bathroom home with a guest house in 2014.
The 6,212-square-foot home sold to a wealthy South American businessman, said listing agent Michael Light of Douglas Elliman.
Hammock House is located in the exclusive gated Camp Biscayne. The modern home has marble flooring throughout, a heated salt-water pool, hot tub and summer kitchen. A living space encased in windows juts out into the lush tropical foliage of the backyard, images of the home show.
There is also a modern, window-lined guest house separate from the main residence.
Zedillo Velasco’s father was president of Mexico from the December 1994 to November 2000, and is currently the director of a globalization center at Yale University in addition to being on the board of directors at Citigroup.
