The 11-bedroom, approximately 38,000-square-foot home is about five miles north of the Long Island Sound coastline, said Karen Scott of Compass, who represented Bernstein in the off-market transaction. Westport’s non-waterfront homes typically don’t sell for more than $10 million, Scott said.

The Bernsteins purchased the land for $5 million in 2007 and built the house in 2008, according to real estate records. The seller did not respond to a request for comment. Scott declined to identify the buyer.

The approximately 7.5-acre site includes a pool, tennis courts, playground, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor seating and dining areas, Scott said.

Bernstein recently wrote a book on mental health, LifeLines, and founded a wellness company of the same name, according to the company’s website.
