Cold War Home Built 26 Feet Underground

This two-storey home at 3970 Spencer Street in Las Vegas, Nevada has it all: a swimming pool, a sauna, two Jacuzzis, four-hole putting green, a bar, a dance floor and a barbeque, but even if it looks perfectly normal above ground, the staircase leads to something that is way more interesting.

Below this lush home is where all the great amenities are. 26 feet below the ground there is an underground house that was built at the request of the businessman Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson, who was very concerned about being blasted during the Cold War.

The 15,200 square-foot underground house was designed to accommodate a family for a whole year, featuring lights that change depending on the time of the day, and an airy overhead blue sky with white clouds.

Aside from the décor that is totally 1970s, the house has everything a person could need for a year-long stay.

The house along with the basement casita recently sold for $1,150,000.
