David Siegel Sells $75 M Florida Versailles Mansion Unfinished
David Siegel Has Sold His Florida Mansion Nickname Versailles
David Siegel, billionaire CEO, put his 90,000 square feet Florida mansion on the market in May for $75 million, but the home boasting 13 bedrooms and 23 bathrooms is not even finished. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, someone has purchased it, although the final sale amount has not been revealed.
David Siegel and his wife Jacqueline called the house 'Versailles' after the extravagant palace in France built for King Louis XIV, but they had to stop building the house last year and blamed the recession. It is estimated the it will take between 12 and 18 months to finish the property.
The house, when fully built, would certainly top anything else in Orange County, where the current trophy for biggest house is held by Orlando Magic guard Vince Carter, whose home is 42,134 gross square feet.
The house has a 20-car garage, a 7,200 grand hall with a 30 foot-wide stained glass dome that was built by hand over three years and included 1.4 miles of lakeshore according to the Orlando Sentinel. It also has a two-lane bowling alley, an arcade, roller rink and children's theatre reports the Palm Beach Post.
The buyer remains unknown.
