The former home of Lennar Corp. founder Leonard Miller, who died in 2002, and his wife Susan, who passed away in November, is for sale. Asking price: $49 million.

The waterfront estate, which was built in 1973, is at 23 Star Island Dr. The seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion measures 10,211 square feet and features 327 feet of water frontage, pool, tennis court and a separate two-bedroom guest house.

The Millers were revered in South Florida for their philanthropy, raising more than $130 million for the United Way over the past 35 years. The couple made a $100 million contribution in 2004 to the University of Miami School of Medicine, which was renamed the Miller School of Medicine.

The property was listed on Wednesday by Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of The Jills Real Estate.
