David Siegel, a timeshare tycoon based in Florida, once had ambitious plans to build the largest home in the U.S.He got as far as the walls. The mansion, fittingly called Versailles and located in Windermere, the same Orlando, Fla. suburb where Tiger Woods lived pre-scandal, is totally bare-bones and currently on the market for $75 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Siegel and wife Jackie were forced to put the property on the market after the credit crunch hurt his company, Westgate Resorts, the WSJ reported.

The mega-mega-mansion clocks in at 90,000-square-feet. It has 13 bedrooms, 23 full bathrooms, a 6,000-square-foot master suite and indoor-and-outdoor pools.

The unfinished shell can be yours for $75 million. An extra $25 million will buy you the rest of the construction work.

At 90,000 square feet, Versailles, if it's ever completed, will be the largest home in America.

Unfortunately right now, it's still a gigantic construction pit.

Here's a fairly optimistic artist's rendering.

Here's the home's main entrance. Even unfinished, it looks majestic.

The main hall contains not one, but two grand staircases.

Here's how it will presumably look when it's competed.

Of course, there's still a long way to go.

The stained glass dome is already in place. At 30 feet wide, it's an absolute masterpiece.

Eventually, this will be a dining room that seats 30.

And this will be a garage with room for 20 vehicles.

This is the view from the balcony. Not bad!

There's a boardwalk leading through the swampland towards the house.

Eventually, it hits the boathouse (also incomplete).

Someday, this will be a bowling alley.

And if things go according to plan, this will be the children's playroom.

This unfinished room will be a children's theatre and computer room. It's larger than some people's houses.

Here's what the yard looks like, today.

There's a swimming pool, but you probably don't want to take a dip in it yet.

Here's what the indoor relaxation pool currently looks like.

A far cry from the final plan.

Just so you can understand how immense this mansion is, here's the bird's eye view.

This isn't the only American house modelled after a European masterpiece
