The auction of a 20,653-square-foot estate, known for its bell tower and status as a prime attraction for waterborne tourists traversing the New River in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will take place from March 26 to 28, 2019.
The auction is for the sprawling riverfront mansion that was home to the late billionaire H. Wayne Huizenga.
Huizenga was founder of the Fortune 500 companies Waste Management, AutoNation, and Blockbuster Video — and was also was co-owner of three South Florida sports teams, the Miami Dolphins, Florida Panthers and Florida Marlins. He died last year after a long bout with cancer at age 80.
Huizenga acquired the home in 2005 from Michael Egan, a friend and business associate who founded and chaired Alamo Rent A Car. Egan and his wife acquired the property in 1991 for $3.6 million.
