Baseball star Ryan Howard, who plays for the Phillies, is finishing touches on his massive 34,000 square foot Mediterranean style mega mansion located on County Road 699 in Belleair Shore, FL. He paid $3.5 million for the property back in 2011 and spent another $5.8 million on construction. The home, which is now one of the largest in the area, was built by Brandon Construction and features 8 bedrooms, 10+ bathrooms, 2 elevators, 2 kitchens, 3 laundry rooms, 2-story library, trophy room, bowling alley, wine cellar and a resort-style swimming pool with lazy river running through the home.

    $80,000 doorknobs?? Douche.
    The indoor/outdoor/underground lazy river does sound pretty awesome though.

    Only $9.3 million to build a 34,000 sq.ft. house, including a large lot of beachfront land! Quite the bargain. We see on this site an endless parade of mansions costing a thousand dollars per square foot. That this one is going up for only $270 per square foot means one of three things – honest work done at a fair price (yeah, right), a lot of corners were cut throughout (likely), or everybody else got ripped off (definitely). The ariel view shows much smaller homes around it – I wonder whether this bargain priced monstrosity will enhance their value, or make buyers ask why they’re getting so little for their money.

    This home has got to be straight up garbage. Only $5.8 million in construction costs for a 34,000 square foot home? That’s like $170 per square foot. John Finton said a quality home costs $500 per square feet. I think you need to spend at least $300 per square feet to have something decent. This is gonna look like a cheap spec home with cardboard walls.

      I was just going by Kenny Forder’s headline for this post. Apparently, either the article or Kenny has been misinformed. Keep Calm & Carry On.
