Proof that the Upper East Side is hot: Televisa Studios President Patricio Wills and his wife Adriana Santos have bought a bayfront house for $7 million in Miami’s MiMo District.
The former executive producer of Telemundo’s “La Reina del Sur” and Santos completed the purchase of the two-story house at 7311 Belle Meade on Belle Meade Island last week, according to a press release. The 6,208-square-foot house has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms, two half bathrooms, a pool and a dock.
Douglas Elliman Realtors Ivonn and Richard Goihman represented Wills. Compass Realtor Mathieu Rochette represented the seller, Pascal Nicolai, founder and CEO of Sabal Development. Nicolai listed the house for $7.495 million in October 2019.
Nicolai acquired the the property for $1.74 million in 2013 and completed construction in 2018. TOGU Architecture and Sabal Development designed the house.
Goihman and Rochette declined to comment due to non-disclosure agreements.
The house sold at 29% higher than the most comparable listing. Wills and Santos spent about $1,127 per square foot. A 8,573-square-foot waterfront home at 1201 NE 83rd St. is listed for sale at $6.9 million, or about $805 per square foot.
Wills joined Televisa, based in Mexico, in early 2018. He created Televisa’s telenovela production studio, Televisa Studios, and is behind “Cuna de lobos” and “La Usurpadora,” according to Variety.
