‘Partridge Family’ Star David Cassidy Is Auctioning Off His Fort Lauderdale Estate
The Sept. 9 auction for David Cassidy's Fort Lauderdale house closed with a high bid of $1.8 million—about $700,000 more than the star paid for the property in 2001, Reuters reports. The sale will go before a judge next week.
Now’s your chance to live in the home of “Partridge Family” star David Cassidy.
A federal bankruptcy court recently ordered the 1970s pop star to auction off his waterfront estate on Sept. 9, the Associated Press reports. Fisher Auction Company is handling the sale of the property, located at 1600 S. Ocean Drive in Fort Lauderdale, at 11 a.m. that day.
The former teen heartthrob filed for bankruptcy in February. People magazine reported that Cassidy’s assets and debt amount up to $10 million, including $102,000 owed to a lawyer in Hallandale.
The home has six bedrooms and six bathrooms and includes a chef’s kitchen, custom wood flooring, high ceilings, a resort-style pool, dock and boat lift. Cassidy paid $1.1 million for the home in 2001, according to public records. Zillow estimates its current value to be $3.2 million.
Cassidy has faced trouble in recent years. In May, he was fined $900 and ordered to perform community service for drunken driving in upstate New York, according to the Associated Press. He pled guilty after being charged with a misdemeanor in August 2013.
