This 27,000 square foot mega mansion is being built by Wayne and Judy Heller in Winter Park, FL. It is being built on the site where the historic Casa Feliz home once stood. It will boast a 2,000 square foot art gallery and an unfinished 2nd floor.

From the Orlando Sentinel:

Th Hellers purchased Casa Feliz in 2000 after selling a lucrative, cruises-only travel agency, started razing the 1930s house that year to make way for a larger, more-updated home until they were stopped almost immediately by the city amid protests from preservationists. Despite the rush to demolish Casa Feliz, the Hellers didn’t build their new, larger house once the historic structure was moved across Interlachen Avenue to city-owned property. Instead of the two-year timetable they had envisioned, it has taken than more than 10 years for them to even start the construction of their dream home and they now hope to finish it as soon as next year.

    Eh. Did they have to make every window in the front identical? Looks like a prison.

    Kenny, do you know if it’s the space at: 656 N Interlachen Ave, Winter Park, FL?

    I think it will be a nice place. I like the look of it. White is a good color for large homes.

    It’s an interesting thing to build a 2,000 sq ft room dedicated to art.

    So is the place going to be 27,000 sf with or without the second floor…?

    Regardless, I find it odd that they’re choosing to build the home that way. With properties of this size, I would think it’d be unusual to make that big a concession to the hypothetical future owners. Wouldn’t the people that spent 10 years getting the design and construction of their dream home under way not want to make any compromises for the sake of possible future owners? It’s a little puzzling to me, almost suggests they don’t plan on living there very long.

    An unfinished 2nd floor? Why? And what IS the appeal of the Orlando area that there are so many huge houses in the area? If this place turns out looking anything like Vizcaya, I’ll be surprised.
