Wow, this home sure has went through a roller coaster of asking prices! Built in 2002, the home first went on the market with an asking price of $48 million over 6 years ago. Then the price went to $35 million, then to $59.55 million, then to $72 million, then to $65.5 million, then to $27.5 million, and now to its current price of $69,900,000. That is a $42.4 Million price increase!! Why in the world would they do such a thing?
