'There is nothing left': Family's $4MILLION medieval-style dream mansion that took them three years to build burns to the ground
A sprawling $4 million mansion built by an Ohio family has been gutted after a fire broke out on Friday afternoon.
Homeowner Maria Decker, who had only added the finishing touches to her family's dream home last year, was on vacation when the fire broke out.
Plumes of smoke and flames as high as 30ft could be seen as the fire ripped through the 22-room stone-built mansion.

Did the first one fall into the swamp?
That place looks like something out of Citizen Kane. How awful for them.
It’s not that the mansion cost $4 million, or so I thought. But when I found out that it cost $4MILLION, I took notice.
If I had $4 million to spend on a house, it would be made mostly of concrete and would include a sprinkler system.
Yes sad, I wonder how the family business was doing? Bet that’s one of the first things the police will look into.
we need more castles and dungeons in America!
Sorry about their loss, but it was ugly. And what are you going to do with all those rooms?
If I could have a fantasy house, I’d want an indoor pool, gym, bar/rec room, and movie room.
Isn’t that where Hillary lives? She sleeps in her coffin in the basement?
My buddy is just finishing his house, bigger than that one and costs more, I think it’s a bit much, but it’s his money. He has a fire system.
The good news from this is that nobody was hurt, always be thankful for what you have.
Some people do have to worry. Ya can get castles pretty cheap[Europe]. Cheap is always subjective.
That’s what I never understood, why someone would want to live like that? It’s like living in a hotel with no guests, just creepy.
I’d be very happy with a 6000 sq ft spread and weather insulated to the max. A little detached workshop and some land to garden on and its a mansion/plantation.
It’s mostly jealousy and envy in the comments at the site. If it took them years and years to build they can’t be THAT rich. And how do those commenters know whether this family donates generously to charities? Plus they probably think that their celebrities that live in WAY more expensive houses are A-OK. Whether it is arson remains to be seen. I feel sorry that they lost their personal articles.
