Unfinished Mega-Mansion

July 27, 2008


The owner of this unfinished mega-mansion is Hollywood Video founder Mark Wattles. The mansion has over 50,000 square feet of living space and sits on over 32 acres of waterfront property. It was being built in Portland, Oregon. A lack of funding and problems with the builder halted construction and it hasn’t been worked on since 1997. Upon being completed, the mansion was going to include 9 bedrooms including a 10,000 square foot master suite, which is almost 5 times the size of the average American house, and 8 bathrooms. Also, it was going to include a gymnasium, a massive 4,000 square foot pool, and a 19 car garage.
