A video creator, Steve Ronin, said that the owner was an Arabian king and also a leader of the house of Saud. According to the clip posted on Facebook, it was built to be a replica of the American White House.

Before the man died in 2005, he was estimated to be worth $32billion. Steve said that finding a path into the house was a difficult task.

He stated that he later regretted his action for not going inside. It should be noted that all through the video, the owner's name was never mentioned. Briefly News cannot verify if this was to protect his identity.
Deserted but rich
At the time of writing this report, the video has been seen over 2 million times. Full footage of the house was shown, with the mansion looking deserted.
