I’m in heaven =). It seems as though the estate’s listing agent has put up a website dedicated to the monstrosity that is “Versailles”. Now that’s more like it!!  The website features a video, a few pics, and info on the 90,000 square foot, $100 million home. However, there is another website with a virtual tour and 125 large photos of most of the rooms. While it’s still under construction, I still think it’s awesome to see the sheer size of all of the rooms. They are all basically 2-1/2 stories high! When I was looking at the virtual tour, I couldn’t help but stare in awe. The home is so voluminous it seems like a museum. I think this home has MAJOR potential. What do you guys think?!!!!!

* I emailed the realtor, Lorraine, and asked if I could take a tour of the home when I visit Florida again. Most realtors wouldn’t email me back, but she did an said “it would be an honor and privilege” to take me on a tour. How awesome is she?!! I’m super excited. Hopefully it will still be for sale when I decide to go down there.

    I guess the rooms look about how I thought they might–large and hotel-like. This is really more of a commercial building than a home, not only in size but also in the way it seems to be constructed. Just too boxy and overdone in pretty much every aspect. I wish I knew how much money Siegel had invested in this thing so far–with all the imported materials stacked in the garage, there is no telling–probably at least 40 million. I still see it never selling for anything over 20 million…regardless of what has been said by visitors to this blog about the Windermere area, the street this house sits on has 3 or 4 houses that are 8-9000 square feet, tops. Orlando isn’t Beverly Hills or Palm Beach. I can’t see anyone investing 75 or 100M in this place. The Hadid house blows this thing away (because it looks more like a home and seems liveable, regardless of its 48,000 SF) and it went for 50M ? complete. This house isn’t worth twice that, regardless of how fancy they finish it out.

    I still predict bulldozers to raze this thing someday, but I may be wrong. It will be quite a story if he can sell it for anywhere near his asking price, but considering houses like The Manor, Fleur de Lis, Champ d Or and Le Reve sitting for year(s) I suspect this ego on display will be no different.

    sorry Kenny, but other than it’s sheer size this things is an architectural albatross. I’d certainly visit it if I were in Florida, but this thing in no way is Versailles. bad bad bad! I agree with the above poster who said it won’t sell for that price. not in Orlando. There is talk about knocking down Champ D’Or here in Texas. I’d see this happening to this home as well especially since it’s incomplete.

      I agree, this home is in the wrong town, while it shouldn’t called “Versailles”.

      Mr. Siegel you picked the wrong location…

    Great find & awesome video. His wife sure came off as a major ditz though. Didn’t come off as someone with sense or intelligence. Anyway, back to the house. A home that has a full movie theater is an awesome privilege. But 2 movie theaters is beyond necessary? Why in God’s name would you need two? This house is boarder line hotel.

    This is some sort of mess they got into. Usually people who can afford this asking price have very discerning taste. I would think that at least half of the people who can afford the asking price would rather build exactly what they want. This is another “updown court” waiting to happen. I think that house is still on the market, which would be about 7 years now? Should be interesting to watch how this story will end.

    and that swampy lake is not very appealing, especially if your going to be having alot of kids around, the artists rendering of the spa is awesome though

    It’s not even half done, it’s still a complete dump inside. This monstrosity will NEVER be completed. I think it will just be left standing there for several years and then probably torn down again.

    My Realtor took my family out today for a 2nd time to look at some lake front lots in Windermere. We were in a development called Waterstone and what do I see across the lake…..the so called Versailles. I’ve known about this home and have commented here a few times about it. Totally didn’t expect to see it from afar today. I did my best to snap a picture of it from across the lake. I’ll email it to you Kenny for what ever its worth. I know you discovered some great shots here.

    The house is so tall. I guess it’s actually 3 stories with a higher elevation in the front to create the illusion of a basement. I’m sure the neighbors are pissed seeing that outside of their windows everyday. It’s taller than the surrounding homes. We are not looking to build a home even near the sq footage of Versailles. That size would never feel like home to us.

      Nice! What would be the largest home that you would ever build on one of those lots? 20,000 sq.ft?

        Definitely 15-20,000 sq ft max if it were in my budget. The house our architect designed is 11,083 sq ft and I’ll be more than happy with that. We’ve waited a long time, saving & planning looking at countless homes to get ideas. Your site is such a great resource & you have a fan for life. I do enjoy looking at all types of nice homes.
