A 1970’s Cold War Ear Home Built 26 Feet Underground

Las Vegas is fertile breeding ground for the strange. Now that this bizarre, personal Cold War bunker has hit the residential market, you can add this creepy Hobbit-like underground home to your list of places to see on your next visit to Sin City. At this sprawling home for sale at 3970 Spencer Street, just east of the Las Vegas Strip, you can golf, barbecue, swim, relax in a hot tub, dance under a starry sky and make breakfast while gazing at the mountains – all while 26 feet underground.

The unusual home is a 5,000 square foot subterranean villa situated inside a 15,2000 square-foot bunker. It was built in the 1971 (and still retains a 70′s Brady Bunch décor) and features a heated pool, four-hole putting green, two Jacuzzis, sauna, bar, dance floor, and a small stage enveloped within 13″ concrete walls (it is designed to withstand a nuclear blast) decorated to mimic the great outdoors. If the thought of living in a dark, dank basement deters you, never fear.  The home makes use of a sky control system that lets the occupants adjust the lighting mode. Light switches labeled “Sunset,” “Day,” “Dusk” and “Night” simulate those settings by dimming or brightening lights and stars on the ceiling, which is painted sky blue with white clouds.

In 2012, the home was foreclosed on after a buyer who had purchased it in 2005 for $2 million, couldn’t keep up with mortgage payments. Now, it’s been repossessed by the bank and can be yours for a paltry $1.7 million.
