Hedge fund manager and Pittsburgh Steelers co-owner Robert Citrone has sold his Walt Disney World Resort vacation home, which was listed in early November for $8.5 million.

Mr. Citrone and his wife, Cindy, have four children, and their home base is in Connecticut, where Robert founded Discovery Capital Management. But the couple's hometown is Pittsburgh, and their stake in the Steelers along with their philanthropy keep them in close ties with the city.

BING CROSBY'S FORMER CALIFORNIA DESERT HOME HITS MARKET FOR $4.5M

The 9,056-square-foot Florida mansion the Citrones just sold is known as "The Beauvoir," and is situated in Orlando's coveted Golden Oak neighborhood on Enchanted Oak Drive. 

"The street name is fitting for the home," listing agent Matt McKee of the McKee Group at Compass told FOX Business. "It is truly something out of a Disney movie – the prettiest, most enchanting home within Golden Oak."
