In case you missed it, Andrew Parkers OTHER house is on the auction block! Check out these photos. One of the most incredibly opulent houses in San Antonio. Andrew is in jail for wire fraud, racketeering and other charges. I posted a link to his story last winter.

Well there's no furniture. Why would anyone want to by an empty house and then have to furnish it. I'll skip the auction.

I love the walk-through shower in the master. Wonder if there is a sauna or steam room.

Surprised the kitchen only has 6 burners, I would expect 8 or perhaps more burners on the island considering a house of that size that is clearly meant for entertaining.

I can't figure out the black glass behind the tub in slide #10....and the paint job on the ceiling with the black hole.?? Like the ceiling was painted sky blue and they started to paint it butter yellow and got interrupted by the IRS.

Notice the mirrors are missing in the bathrooms.

I don't think that's a walk through shower, though. I think the commode is on the far end behind the shower. You can tell by where the floor ends in the shower.

The staircase is incredible! That house is move in ready. Not sure if it was fitted with bulletproof glass like his other house. I think Eleanor Rigby knew the scoop on that.

Giant nose candy parties? Or what? I'm not savvy so I really don't get the mirror part.

LOL~!!! All I can figure is that they had hung antique mirrors or something expensive that was not "fixed" to the wall. That way they could be auctioned off with the contents. Not sure what the "real estate" rules are when the IRS is the owner!
