The Florida home, which wasn’t on the market, is an Italian-style home on Indian Creek Island, an exclusive enclave of about 33 homes. The coral-colored home has an “arrival court” with formal hedges and a reflecting pool. The home measures about 17,000 square feet, has seven bedrooms and sits on 2.7 acres, according to public records. A spokesman for Mr. Lampert, who lives in Greenwich, Conn., declined to comment.
The would-be sellers are Miami businessman Paul Cejas and his wife, Trudy, who own the property through a trust. The couple bought the land in 1998 and tore down a house to build the mansion.
