British millionaire property developer Patrick Diter and his wife, Monica, wanted to buy a villa in Tuscany.
But the couple ended up building their very own sprawling, $64 million Tuscan-style mansion in Grasse, a town in the south of France less than an hour’s drive from Nice, French magazine Paris Match reported in 2017.
The home, dubbed “Chateau Diter,” includes 18 suites, two helicopter pads, a swimming pool, and manicured gardens.
But it may not be standing for much longer. Last month, a French court decided the structure was illegally built and ordered Diter to demolish it within 18 months, CNN reported. Otherwise, the property developer will have to pay a fine of $226,000 as well as an extra $565 per day for every day the home remains standing past the deadline.
