Daren Metropoulos, a son of Greek-American billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos, paid $18 million for an Oceanfront home in Miami Beach’s Altos del Mar community, sources told The Real Deal. The three-story Miami Beach home has two full kitchens, a home theater, three wine cellars, three fireplaces, a guest house and outdoor kitchen. It sits on a 0.37-acre lot.
Mark Keller and his wife, Carolyn Keller, sold the five-bedroom, 5,686-square-foot house at 7815 Atlantic Way on Friday, April 9, 2021. It was listed for $19.3 million.
Metropoulos, who owns the Playboy Mansion in L.A., is not the first in his family to pick up pricey Miami area real estate. In recent years, Daren’s brother Evan acquired adjacent homes in Key Biscayne for nearly $60 million.
Mark Keller, the seller of the Atlantic Way home, is chairman and CEO of Edge Funds, an investment and asset management firm with offices in Washington, D.C., New York and Miami Beach. He was previously CEO of Republic Property Trust, a real estate investment trust. His wife founded EBeauty Community, a nonprofit that helps women undergoing cancer treatment.
Oren Alexander of Douglas Elliman represented the Kellers, while Miltiadis Kastanis and James Hait of Douglas Elliman brought the buyer. They declined to comment on the deal.
Next door, Bal Harbour Shops owner Matthew Whitman Lazenby in February paid more than $17 million for an Oceanfront Altos Del Mar estate.
