Wanna guess who’s next on the bankruptcy rolls?. Here’s the part I like best about this Florida entrepreneur’s delusions:

Another current McKinney project is a $135 million spec home, The Manalapan Residence. This three-story 67,670 square foot home includes 14 bedrooms, 24 bathrooms, an 18 car garage, a 6,140 sq. ft. master bedroom suite, lavish Grand Rotunda room for entertaining, dual water walls, aquarium ceilings and walls, movie theatre, casino and club room with stunning aquarium wet bar, oceanfront gourmet family kitchen, catering kitchen, outdoor summer kitchen, his/her offices, 10 wet bars, two wine rooms (one for red, one for white), gymnasium with beauty salon, two swimming pools (classical lap and grotto waterfall/waterslide), shark tank, two elevators, bowling alley, tennis court with pavilion, archery range, 1/4 mile jogging/go cart track, butterfly gardens, Italian and Floridian gardens, sculpture gardens, citrus orchard, guest house, staff house, back-up generator, full home automation, and more.

One reader has suggested that Greenwich residents who want to build a dream house just wait a few months and take something off the hands of a failed builder for pennies on the dollar. If you’re also thinking of a little vacation spot in Florida, you may want to apply that advice to our south, too.

    “Florida Catering” submitted the following comment which I inadvertently deleted. Here it is again:
    “I think that pennies on the dollar of a $135 million estate, is a lot of pennies.”

    And he’s right – the Helmsley estate may never sell for its asking price but it’s a very impressive place – clearly the most visible mansion in Greenwich, which will appeal to certain types. 50+ acres of land, nice house, great views and a Round Hill address will certainly bring more than mere pennies.
