April 1, 2013 by Billionaire Addresses
Today Billionaire Addresses is featuring a sprawling mega mansion in Tampa, Florida that has gone on the market for half of the original cost to build it. Building it to look similar to the Palace of Versailles near Paris, France, the mansion is now on sale for the price of $12.9 Million. The mansion was first put on the market 4 years ago with a price tag of $25 Million, and has dropped in price three times since the initial offering.
The head of the now bankrupt coin wholesaler National Gold Exchange, Mark Yaffe, reportedly agreed to the price as a way to pay off millions of dollars of debts.
The mansion is 29,000 square feet and has ten bedrooms and ten bathrooms along with 14 fireplaces, a grand ballroom, wood-paneled library, wine cellar and basketball court. The home was put on the market just 4 years after being built in 2004.
The Avila community in Tampa is known for it sweeping driveways and secluded properties. Residents include New York Yankees’ captain Derek Jeter and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Tony Dungy.
Yaffe, has been a coin dealer since 1975 and is a respected expert. He was the first ever dealer to sell a single coin for more than $1 Million. It is unclear why the National Gold Exchange went bankrupt. They filed for Chapter 11 filing on July 24, 2009. Thank you to Realtor.com for a few of the mansion images below.
