Abandoned $10.5 Million Mansion Still 90% Furnished
An Oklahoma 'Urban Explorer' goes by Big Bankz, who travels all over the countryside with his camera and takes his viewers into incredible abandoned properties. First, hats off to this dude and his crew because a person has got to be pretty brave going into any building that's been abandoned. You never know who or what is going to be in there!
So, these guys have some major courage, that's for sure. I'm not sure where he gets his information nor how he learns about these properties. However, the former homes and buildings he comes across and the stories that go along with them are fascinating. The video below is one of his latest expeditions featuring an amazing 30,000-square-foot mansion that was abandoned with 90% of its belongings, including three vehicles in 2016!
Here's the story:
Somewhere in the U.S.(location of home not mentioned) is a 10-bedroom and 11-bathroom home. It is estimated to be worth $10.5 million and was built in 2006 for a wealthy surgeon, his wife, and four children. He was reportedly very successful and owned several practices that expanded to nearby states. Sadly, they only got a chance to live in the home for a couple of years before tragedy struck.
The surgeon was also a licensed pilot and owned a single-engine plane. Supposedly one day, he and his 15-year-old son went for a flight and tragically crashed into a mountain. They both died. Apparently, the surgeon didn't have finances/life insurance, or paperwork to secure the property for his family. Allegedly his wife was forced to sell the home and move with their remaining three children.
The new owner, according to Bankz, was a foreigner who lived there until moving back to their native country in 2015. This person left everything behind furniture, dishes, clothes, vehicles, etc., stopped paying taxes, and never returned! For the past seven years, this massive mansion has been abandoned in the middle of a sprawling gated community.
