$680K Dream Home Built On Wrong Lot In Florida

680000 Home Wrong Lot

A $680K home was built on the wrong lot. Mark and Brenda Voss, a couple from Missouri are in disbelief after learning that the construction company they hired for their $680K Floridian vacation home, accidentally built it on the wrong lot. Mark and Brenda Voss have a total of 18 lots in the area, the company just had to pick the wrong one.

Here is an interesting question, what do you do with a stunning $680K home built on the wrong lot? That is, what Mark and Brenda Voss, and Keystone Homes are trying to figure out.

Few years ago, Mark and Brenda Voss, a husband and wife duo from Missouri, who owns a well-established real estate company, hired Keystone Homes to build their $680K home.

The pair has been using the 5,000-square-foot house as a vacation rental. The breathtaking three-story $680K home has 5.5 bathrooms, a home theater, game room and screened-in pool.

Keystone Homes were supposed to build the home on the 23 Ocean Ridge. Blvd. lot, but; instead, they went across the street and constructed it on the lot at 21 Ocean Ridge Blvd. Records show that the 23 Ocean Ridge. Blvd. lot was purchased by the homeowners in 2012 for $160,000.

“The wrong lot” belongs to Andrew Massaro and his wife, Brooke Triplett, who reside in North Carolina. The duo has refused to talk to media. A quick search, revealed that the pair bought that lot in 2003 for $355,000.

Here is the ironic twist in the “$680K home built on wrong lot” story, the real estate moguls own a total of 18 lots in the gated community near Palm Coast, but for some strange reason the builder just had to pick the one lot that belongs to someone else.

The Voss family learned about the $680K error last month, after the home had been rented numerous times.

Robbie Richmond, the vice president of Keystone Homes has taken full responsibility for his mistake and has contacted both parties to solve this matter sans lawyers.

Believe it or not, according to Richmond, another builder from Flagler County has at least once in the past built a home on the wrong lot. He went on to explain the reason why the home was erected on the wrong lot, it is because there are no distinguishing landmarks on the lots.

The builder has apologized for the headaches he has caused the two families, and has confessed that he has never done anything like this before.

While Richmond is hoping that the lot owners will simply swap lots, it appears that the Vosses have other plans. Talking to local media, Mark Voss stated that he has several ideas on how to resolve this amicably, but do not expect him to agree to swap lots.

      Impossible to believe, since they are real estate agents the should know they would have received an appraisal, survey, title commitment with the legal address and property address. Did they not read?

        The paper work could have been fine. It’s not the real estate agents at fault here; it’s the builder.

      Don’t know about in Florida, but where I live the EVEN-numbered houses are on the North/East side of the street and the ODD-numbered homes are on the South/West side of the street. Any 5th grader around here knows that. To put it on the wrong side means you do not fully understand maps and simple map reading.
