Holy Cow!!! I’m in shock. This has OFFICIALLY made my day! It was reported a year ago that timeshare mogul David Siegel (owner of Westgate Resorts) had put the construction of his super mansion, dubbed Versailles, on hold because of the poor economy. Well, it seems like David had other plans as well. The home, located at 6121 Kirkstone Lane in Windermere, FL, just hit the market for a mind numbing $100,000,000, which makes it the most expensive home on the market in Florida. For $100 million, the home will be finished to buyers specifications. It is also listed for $75 million if it were to be purchased in its current state without being finished. The home is now part of the elite $100+ million real estate club that boasts the $150 million “Manor”, the $125 million Fleur de Lys estate, and the $100 million Tranquility estate. David’s super mansion boasts an incredible 66,800 square feet of living space (90,000 under roof), which makes it the largest single family residence in the United States. It is located on a 10+ acre lot overlooking Lake Butler. The home is an incredible 200ft x 200ft and is 67 feet tall. It boasts a large boathouse, formal gardens, 13 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, 3 swimming pools (one indoor), a 20-car garage, 1-story gatehouse with apartment, baseball field, 2 tennis courts, a 7,200 square foot grand hall with 30ft. stained glass dome, 2 grand staircases, 30-seat formal dining room, 1,110 square foot main kitchen, 10 satellite kitchens, his-and-her offices with 12ft. aquarium, 2-story wine cellar, rock grotto with 3 spas and 80ft waterfall, fitness center, a 2-lane bowling alley, an indoor roller rink, video arcade, children’s wing with home theater and multiple living areas, an adult home theater with balcony, and a 1/2 acre main pool deck.

First of all, can you say excessive?! Ugh, I am out of breath. I never seen a home with that many features/amenities before. Who the hell needs 10 kitchens?! By the way, the Brazilian mahogany french doors cost $4 million alone! To be honest, I really don’t think this home has a chance of selling. The other $100+ million homes are all completely finished and located in much better areas. Do you know how long it would take to complete a mansion of this caliber?! What do you think? I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.

    Cute price. $75 or $100 million. How the hell can you justify that? This is CENTRAL Florida! You are at least 45 mins from any beach. Lake Butcrack? No thanks…

    A home of this size is out of place in this part of Florida. I know there are big houses in the area (Shaq’s being one of them), but the price tag will never be warranted. I can see it selling for $35 million FINISHED tops.

    In my opinion, the home itself is ugly. For $75-$100 million, I’ll stick to places that actually command that price tag, say Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Aspen or The Hamptons. Not Windermere. Too many Cadilliac’s losing control and hitting trees with “sex-addicted” drivers…

    I think you’d be pretty foolish to select anything other than the $75 mill option with the seller’s preferences. I happen to be attracted to the Louis XIV – Napoleonic period, but even I would want to trade in an indoor ice skating rink for something else. The trouble is, what else? I happen to like big digital organs with like 70 – 100 speakers. Unless you wanted it out of site, it would be pretty easy to do this with minimum obstruction in the ballroom area. Unlike most homes, it wouldn’t take away room for furniture! That’s another reason to save $25 million – for furniture, taxes, insurance & utility bills!

    You have to admit from a Realtor’s standpoint (I used to be one) that anytime a property has a $100 million price tag, you get a lot more publicity. Publicity is free vs. advertising that costs $$$.

      Organbrett, and all other Homes of the Rich addicts……..Former, high-end realtor here too, in what’s called Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan…..maybe you’ve heard of it? Storied, very wealthy, historic district, among five other Grosse Pointes. ANYway……….

      I’ve been in a LOT of truly historic, beautiful, huge homes that have valuable, real lineage to Detroits founding and auto industry families, so I’m admittedly skewed towards REAL mansions, not “gargantuan-airports-attempting-to-disguise-themselves-as-homes”. So, with that in mind…….while this building (it will NEVER be a true “home” or even a “house”, it is indescribably TOO HUGE to ever qualify as either one of those words) might be built & designed with lots of beautiful & very expensive methods, theories, & materials, the reason it will never sell for anything even close to 100 mil is because it is most literally, psychotically, and incalculably TOO BIG, PERIOD. I’m 48, and I’ve honestly prided myself all my life on having one HELLUVA’ imagination when it comes to outta-control fantasies of being beyond FILTHY rich, but I will NEVER be able to comprehend the EGO & GREED of both Siegel and his wife. While their money is theirs to do with whatever they want, that fact will still never detract from the permanent & breathtaking absurdity of this monstrosity. At the risk of sounding like a know-it-all, homes that are REALISTICALLY & CORRECTLY proportioned for (mostly) EVERYDAY, REAL LIFE (a statistic that waaaay too many filthy rich people obviously hate with a passion & ignore regularly) is JUST as important to the overall beauty of the house, as is ANYthing related to design, materials, color, art, paint, blah blah blah. PHEWWWW….know what I mean? I could NEVER even begin to take this SHOPPING MALL seriously, as ANY kind of “single family HOME”…….hahahahahahaha!!!! Can I get an AMEN?!

        AMEN AMEN AMEN!!!! You sure hit it on the mark there. I actually drove by this home when our realtor took as around to look at lake front lots. It’s not even done yet and I can tell it will be the most gaudy & excessive “Home” I have ever seen. Yuck!! The neighbors must be pissed. This is just like London’s updown court listed at $14o million. I think it’s been on the market for over 5 years now. The designs I’ve seen of it are just ugly & does not have anything homey about it. I guess billionaires like the feeling of living in vast buildings as opposed to homes. I just don’t get this property.

    Barney –

    You hit the nail on the head! Fleur de Lys has 35,046 sq. ft., which is mind numbing by itself. Then you think, the Siegels planned 66,800 which is almost twice as big!!! 15 baths at the Sapperstein place & here we have 23! – (Poor Svetlana speaking in tongues!) I might have more fun in the swimming pool grotto, but beyond that it is just too $$$$$ much!

    Too small for me, I really prefer houses with 6 digits worth of square footage. Only 2 lanes in the bowling alley? Only 20 cars in the garage? Where do I play golf when it rains, it’s really important to me that I have an indoor 18 hole golf course.

        What do you mean someday, go to realtor.com, search in Flowermound Tx. There is a house listed at $6,500,000. that has an indoor driving range on the first floor and a putting green on the second. Remember in Texas basements are more rare than liberals.

          Golf course, not range, golf course. lol
          The cost would be astronomical, but I am hoping some enterprising billionaire like Roman Abramovich will undertake this feat.
          As far as I know, no one on the planet has an indoor golf course, and in the egocentric world of the billionaire, I think this is the next logical step.

    I would love a home like this, but at a smaller size, say maybe 35,000 square-feet? BTW an ice-skating rink is nothing big, some hedge-fund managers have those in Greenwich, Connecticut in their own homes as well.

    And if 35,000 turns out to still be too big for me, I’d shrink the size moreso, to 20,000, or whatnot. I’d want a massive library like that one previous home and a nice-size gym and home theater, maybe at most two kitchens though.

    I like large homes, but it’s like trucks and SUVs, people like big trucks and SUVs, but there is a point when you get to too big. I doubt most people would want a Cadillac Escalade as long as a bus, for example! Same with homes, I love them large, but not too large!

    Much like our local Champ D’Or, it is too much home in the wrong place. Egos running out of control, building structures that are like the cars on “Pimp my Ride”–interesting to look at, but worthless for their intended use.

    This partly finished monstosity might sell for 20 million some day, although I doubt it. Likely will be bulldozed. Hell, it dwarfs all the homes around it by 5 or 6 times or more. Rule #1 of building a home: NEVER build the biggest home on your street. This house should be on 500 acres somewhere, not in a subdivision fronting a lake affectionally known as Lake Buttcrack. God the upkeep for this place boggles the mind. And David Siegel is like, what 75 years old? Seriously? Good luck with all of that.

    my problem with this mansion is NOT the size….there are huuuge mansions above 40 000 or 50 000 sqft. and they look amazing. it depends on what you make with the sqft. you must try to fill such size with life and put away the emptyness…than in could be a jewel!
    but siegel`s mansion is only huge und ugly, it looks like a 6-story block. in this mansion i could never feel that i am at home…but there are mega-mansions where i could…

    Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, originally built by Marjorie Merriweather Post and is something like 50,000 square-feet I think, it is beautiful inside, but so huge, Donald Trump decided to make it into a country club.

    I say this with all due respect to many… But one thing I really dislike is when some ppl nitpick/bash other ppl’s (properties) when they have very little to show for themselves.

    I think we’ve all established here that this is a website featuring nothing but “Mansions”…. But to make certain comments like: “only huge und ugly, it looks like a 6-story block” or ““gargantuan-airports-attempting-to-disguise-themselves-as-homes” or “his house should be on 500 acres somewhere, not in a subdivision fronting a lake affectionally known as Lake Buttcrack’….

    Well, To those of you who made comments like those: WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SHOW FOR YOURSELVES?? What kind of property and what size property do YOU have??

    I happen to be a local resident.. and there are handful of HOMES that exceeds 20,000sf. and a few others that are greater than 30,000sf. And yes, Even one not so far away that’s approx. 50,000sf. all on LAKES which gives a picturesque view of fireworks from nearby Disney world.

    So, I guess what I’m trying to say here is: Whats the point of BASHING OTHERS whose made ‘the american dream’ become their ULTIMATE SUCCESS…

    A wiseman once said: Small minds talk about each other… While GREAT minds talk about GREAT ideas.

    Have a good day,
    Mrcool7723

    P.S. — I applaud you on your GREAT IDEA for creating this website. Keep up the good work pal.

    To put this all in perspective just compare this home and the asking price with a small condo just recently purchased by an elderly friend of mine. She is 80 and wanted to downsize so she bought a 1019 sq ft. condo. It cost her $1,150,000. Now look at this 90,000 sq ft house going for $100,000,000. Do you see what I’m getting at?

    The houses are indeed beatifull, but “the more you give the more blessings you will receive.” Will those homes make you happy, will they make you have a happy relatioship with others?

    My objection to this house has nothing to do with its size or cost. As a work of architecture, it is completely mediocre. “Versailles” – please! This house looks nothing like Versailles, or any other Louis XIV chateau I’ve ever seen. Stylistically, it is much closer to the Second Empire excesses of the Belle Epoque – think more along the lines of the Paris Opera House. Why anyone wouldn’t take the time to consult a talented architect (and there are plenty of them out there who would love to have a commission like this) is beyond me. One only has to compare it to Fleur d’Lys to see the difference. This house looks like a teenager’s idea of what a mansion should be. The floorplan makes absolutely no sense – where are the reception rooms, the drawing rooms, the library? Why do none of teh spaces connect or even relaet to each other? It really does resemble a mall, with the immense “ballroom” at the center and completely unconnected rooms at various corners. To the super wealthy patrons in America with the itch to build – please, please, please consult a reputable architect who understands design and planning before you waste your money on a monstrosity that has little or no historical or artistic value and will be torn down by the next generation that scratches its head in bewilderment!
