Location: Windermere, FL
For sale: $75 million as-is, or $100 million finished
Monthly mortgage: $348,248/month
If someone wanted the finished version of America’s “largest single family home under one roof," the 66,800-sq ft "Versailles" estate would sit at the top of the most expensive homes’ list at $100 million. But, as an unfinished monster mansion, we’re giving the $75 million “as-is” price more weight, bringing this Windermere real estate masterpiece to number two on the list. Highlights of the property include 13 bedrooms, 23 bathrooms, three pools, baseball field, indoor roller rink, two-story wine cellar, and bowling alley. Whether the finished or as-is asking price is taken, the buyers will still have a whopping 6-digit mortgage payment of $348,248/month (based on a 20 percent down payment of $15 million and 3.94 percent 30-year fixed mortgage rate).
What does one Versailles mortgage payment translate to on the Windermere real estate market? A 2,400-sq ft house:
