A millionaire developer is learning that even he isn’t above the law.

Brit Patrick Diter built a $70 million mansion in Provence, France without …apparently…getting permits. he spent over a well over a decade creating the opulent home. Now he has to tear the 32-thousand square foot building within 18 months. It’s made of imported Italian stones, which no doubt will take a long time to haul away.

The property includes two helipads, a salt water swimming pool, a medieval cloister, a bell tower and a greenhouse, plus 17 acres of gardens, vineyards, olive groves and lily ponds.

In all fairness, Diter had a “verbal” permit, but only to add an extension to the original two-thousand square foot farmhouse. Another “oopsy” the millionaire made was paving a driveway through environmentally protected land.
