Here is a video of the 2 mansions owned by brothers Darain and Cory Atkinson. If you don’t already know, the brothers are the founders of the now bankrupt US Fidelis. They both had to move out of the mansions that they built due to the creditors. Darain’s 40,000 square foot mega mansion, located at 5 Lakeview Court in Lake Saint Louis, MO, recently went into a purchasing agreement for $4.75 million. The home reportedly cost him $30 million to build. Darain’s brother Cory built a $10 million mansion at 302 Atkinson Way in Wentzville, MO.

    Screams nouveau riche like no other place I have seen.

    They can have both of those homes. Look how gloomy the view is from that steeple. Horrible horrible horrible. Give me a 5,000 square-foot oceanfront home in S. Florida ANY DAY over this gigantic behemoth. It may be a good purchase price, but the maintenance will exceed it in 2-3 years.

      Probably MUCH sooner, Dan. And I couldn’t possibly agree with you more. Make my oceanfront home exquisitely done contemporary or a perfectly authentic interpretation of an Art Deco/modern home, thankyouverymuch! These two ridiculous behemoths are truly without any true essence, originality, correctness or attractiveness!

      Ahhhhhhh, ETERNAL EGOMANIA AND ABSURDITY……..Thy name is HUMAN!

    I can’t stand either house. That larger is simply a monument to one person’s ego. Clearly his ego doesn’t have a lot of good taste either. Why so many spiral staircases? Those are terrible for Feng Shui to begin with, plus they’re just not that pleasant to use.

    If the prices quoted to build those houses are correct, both brothers grossly overpaid.

      I entirely agree with you:It’s a luxury mansion, not the Ghostbusters headquarters LOL LOL!

    Enjoyed the video, the first house is going for a massive steal, the up keep is going to probably cost more than what the house is being purchased for.

    I don’t know where people come up with these square footage numbers, it’s pretty obvious this house isn’t near 40,000 SF, unless they are counting garages, patios, everything that’s concrete. Think of Aaron Spellings house and tell me this thing is within 12,000 SF of that place. No way. The appraisal shows around 20,000 which looks about right. Maybe more with the basement, etc…but no way 40K. I like it to some extent, but not there, it’s way out of place.

    I’m with Grrrrowler and Daniel. These homes are garbage. McMansion city all the way, especially the smaller one. These guys had more money than taste.
