Miami’s Tacky Water Fortress For Sale
Assuming Mr. Sieger built himself the home of his dreams, one can't help but note that he completed construction on his ghastly, moat-surrounded homage to Louis XIV in 2007. Never mind the cost, the waste of building materials and destruction of land, he grew bored of his seminal creation in four years.
[Curbed] The eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 10,100-square-foot interiors have a bright, airy, double-height living room, but the ornate wrought-iron rail running around the second story creates a moody, almost Gothic feel (as do many of the furnishings). And if Stonehenge and the Roman Forum were to have an extremely modern baby, it would likely resemble that sculpture garden out back.
Personally, I can't wait to see how he applies his "genius' next. I truly hope it's another breeding pond for mosquitos.
And if it weren't obvious enough how unbelievably tacky the Sieger home is, it was the featured location in a hip-hop video.
Why do local politicians allow this crap to be built? Who does it benefit? Oh right, the local politicians.
