That house is awesome, I didn't say anything negative about it, just that it wasn't the most expensive, it's still a breath-taker though. I seriously wonder what people think making houses that big sometimes though, like are you planning on using it as a hotel or something? Jeez.

Orlando has some very nice areas, even though I'd still definitely pick Miami or anywhere in South Florida over Orlando, but still, whats wrong with it being in Orlando?

It's modeled after a real palace. If you see the photos of when it's finished it doesn't look that tacky, just overly elegent. And why not Orlando? A lot of rich people love golf and that section of Orlando has some of the best and most popular golf courses, that's why tiger woods and many other pro golfer's live there. Orlando offers the same amenities as you would need in other US cities.

Most expensive at best seems a moving target but one that I have personally seen (if driving by and looking at the massive gates and gigantic hedge count) is the Beverly Hills Estate called "Fleur de Lys" (built by formerly alive Texas billionaire David Saperstein) priced at $125 Million by Saperstein's widow.

Supposedly Mariah Carey was trying to buy it but I don't think that sale ever went through.

I thought the gates and hedge looked only slightly better than you could get for in a mansion for oh...say $50 Million.

Nothing wrong with Orlando, but if I had $100M to drop on a house, I cant say OTown would be at the top of my list of places.

I hear ya, Orlando wouldn't be number 1 on my list, but it's still a thought. I figure if you have money like that you'll probably have multiple residence anyway. The main reason I wouldn't pick Orlando first is because I would want something on the coast somewhere.

Actually no. As discussed before,

The largest occupied house is 100,000 square feet in Sagaponack, NY (The Hamptons). It's also the most expensive home built in the US.

And the most expensive property ever sold is also in The Hamptons.

Hamptons, ocean view: Sold for a record $103 million - USATODAY.com

Trump Palm Beach is the second most expensive selling residential property in the US..sold for 99 million.

And I second you, Orlando is too pedestrian for such a house.
