A couple that built a 5,000-square-foot dream house worth an estimated $680,000 is in shock after learning it was built on the wrong lot in Florida's prestigious Ocean Hammock golf community, home of a Jack Nicklaus-designed course that is one of the Top 100 You Can Play.
Mark and Brenda Voss, who own 18 other residential lots in Ocean Hammock, told the Daytona Beach News-Journal that they are “just amazed this could happen.”
Six months after the five bedroom, five and a half bathroom home was built -- which includes a game room, home theater and screened-in pool –- the Vosses learned it was built on the wrong lot. A North Carolina couple own that lot, adjacent to the one the Vosses bought in 2012.
Mark Voss joked that while they once looked forward to moving into the home, they’re having second thoughts.
"With this headache and grief, we’re not so sure,” he said. “The Midwest is looking pretty good right now.”
The Vosses have hired a lawyer, and are in the processes of trying to negotiate a settlement between all parties and the builders, Keystone Homes.
