The auction was conducted after the property had been listed for sale with an asking price of $10 million.

In 2004, beer magnate Dick Yuengling built the Las Olas Isles residence, which spans almost 15,000 square feet. Paddock bought it in 2012 for $6.5 million.

Paddock in February spent $17.1 million for a Fort Lauderdale mansion with 13,000 square feet at 1831 Southeast 9 Street. [Sun-Sentinel] — Mike Seemuth
