Lisa Hochstein recently sued a commenter online for making accusations about her life prior to being on the hit Bravo shot, but now Lisa could be facing even more troubles. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report released on Feb. 6, “The Real Housewives of Miami” star Lisa Hochstein and her husband are facing an uphill battle when it comes to tearing down their Miami Beach home. According to the report, “Lisa and husband Leonard Hochstein want to tear down their 20,000 square foot 1920s mansion in Miami Beach, but the Design Review Board and Design Preservation League are barring the couple from doing so.”
Supposedly, her house has some historical luster and the Design Preservation League wants to preserve the home. “We believe that the proper engineers will be able to save it, and at less than half the cost they claim it would cost to restore it,” said Kent Harrison Robbins of the Design Preservation League. The “Real Housewives of Miami” couple is hoping that they get permission, because the “cloth electricity (is) located 30 inches below flood [level]” and there is “no plumbing to the second floor.”
And it sounds like “The Real Housewives of Miami” star Lisa Hochstein can’t understand why they need permission given they brought the home. “It's our home , we. Bought it , how in the world should it be ANYONE'S concern what we do with it? , how does it affect anyone ? Nuts,” Lisa tweeted yesterday. Are you surprised that Lisa and Lenny can’t change the house they own?
