Comedian, actress and activist Rosie O’Donnell just sold her West Palm Beach home for $5 million to billionaire heir H. Wayne Huizenga Jr., property records show.

Huizenga Jr., the eldest son of entrepreneur H. Wayne Huizenga, plans to knock down the nearly 7,600-square-foot house at 3100 North Flagler Drive, said Billy Nash of the Keyes Company’s Nash Group. Nash represented Huizenga Jr., who is president of Fort Lauderdale-based Huizenga Holdings and CEO of Rybovich Superyacht Marina in West Palm. Liza Pulitzer of Brown Harris Stevens of Palm Beach represented O’Donnell, a former Star Island resident.

The five-bedroom house, built in 1957, sits on an acre of land with golf course views, a deep water dock and 178 feet of waterfront. O’Donnell paid just under $5 million for the home in July 2015, according to property records. She listed it for sale in December 2016 for $6 million.

In October, Huizenga Jr. sold his 11,000-square-foot home mansion at 16191 Quiet Vista Circle for $6.7 million to Office Depot CEO Gerry Smith.

Huizenga Jr.’s father co-founded Waste Management, led Blockbuster Video in the 1990s and has owned three professional sport teams in South Florida: the Miami Marlins, the Miami Dolphins and the Florida Panthers.
