Miami celebrity restaurateur Myles Chefetz is on a real estate roll.
Chefetz recently sold his beloved waterfront home to playboy billionaire Warren Lichtenstein for $15.5 million in an off-market deal, as Gimme reported exclusively.
Chefetz owns a string of popular eateries like Prime 112 — hot spots for the Kardashians, Oprah, Bill Clinton and A-Rod, as well as Rudy Giuliani and his ex-Soviet “‘henchmen,” as Page Six reported — loved the home and did not want to sell.
However, Lichtenstein, we heard, made an offer that Chefetz couldn’t refuse — almost $10 million more than the $5.65 million he had originally paid for the home in 2013.
Now Chefetz has bought a new home at 5780 La Gorce Drive for $5.3 million, from developer Greg Bennati.
The home first listed for $5.45 million.
Bennati bought the property for $1.15 million in 2018. The new development home — completed during lockdown, in December 2020 — is 4,084 square feet.
It features five bedrooms and 5½ baths overlooking Miami Beach’s La Gorce Country Club.
The home includes retractable glass doors, and an infinity pool. Furniture by Artefacto was part of the deal.
Douglas Elliman’s Oren Alexander and Isaac Lustgarten repped both sides of the deal.
