The riverfront estate of the late Fort Lauderdale billionaire H. Wayne Huizenga is listed for sale with a $26.95 million asking price.

The estate’s 18,000-square-foot house has eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms, plus separate wings for family members, guests and staff.

The 1.5-acre property in Fort Lauderdale’s Rio Vista neighborhood, located along a bend in the New River, has 600 feet of waterfront, according to real estate agent Kelly Drum of Drum Realty.

Drum also told the Sun-Sentinel that the Huizenga property, called Tarpon Pointe, has a dock large enough for vessels as long as 140 feet.

The Sun-Sentinel reported that Huizenga bought the estate from Alamo Rent A Car founder Michael Egan in 2005, when it was listed for sale with an asking price of $15.8 million.

The riverfront residence has become a popular discussion item for operators of sightseeing tours on the water.

Huizenga, who died at age 80 in March, is the only entrepreneur who started three businesses AutoNation, Blockbuster Entertainment and Waste Management –  that ranked among the 500 largest U.S. companies in an annual list published by Fortune Magazine.

Huizenga also was the owner of three professional sports franchises in South Florida: the Miami Dolphins football team, the Florida Panthers hockey team and the Marlins baseball team. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
