A dream, custom-built beach house has turned into a nightmare for a couple from Linn, Mo.
Six months after the three-story house was built along the Atlantic Ocean near Palm Coast, Mark and Brenda Voss learned it’s on the wrong lot in the gated Ocean Hammock community.
Mark Voss told the Daytona Beach News Journal they are in “total disbelief.” The Vosses own 18 other residential lots in the community. They bought the lot in 2012 and hired Keystone Homes to build a 5,000-square-foot vacation rental.
Keystone vice president Robbie Richmond told the newspaper they’ve trying to negotiate a settlement. The Vosses have hired a lawyer.
Keystone and Voss say the error can be traced to a 2013 survey. The mistake was uncovered in September after the house had been rented frequently.
