Harlem-based contractor Atelier Premiere says Middlesex Corporation founder Robert Pereira is stiffing them on a $781,000 bill for faux-marble finishes in his monster mansion.

The contractor alleges they redid the finishes twice due to Pereira’s complaints about the coloring of the faux-marble columns and pilasters that adorned his 11-bedroom property, nicknamed Le Palais Royale, in Hillsboro Beach, according to the New York Post.

Atelier’s work at the 4.4-acre property began in 2015 and included work on $3 million worth of gold-leaf gilding.

Pereira has been looking to sell the mansion since September 2014 when it first hit the market asking $139 million. The price was raised to $159 million in November 2015 when it was re-listed with a different agent, but is not currently on the market. [NYP]Erin Hudson
