The private island even comes with some juicy history as the mansion was commissioned by water park developer Jeffrey Wirth, who in 2021 was sentenced to 4-1/2 years in federal prison for a tax evasion scheme.
According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, Wirth developed the Grand Rios Waterpark and Waterpark of America and despite making around $28 million in income between 2003 and 2005, he paid just $7,567 in federal income taxes.
As a result of Wirth’s incarceration, the mansion sat unfinished for several years until it was purchased by Kaskaid Hospitality CEO Kam Talebi for the bargain price of just $1.88 million in 2013.
And now, it can all be yours.
Assuming you can afford the approximately $60,879 in monthly mortgage payments, and a $3 million down payment.
It’s toally worth it though. Heck, the place is so insane that it even has a trailer.
