Underground 1970s Home, Built 26 Feet Beneath Las Vegas, Makes A Great Pad For The Paranoid (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

You know what they say about real estate: It's all about location, location, location. And if you were a paranoid millionaire during the Cold War era, apparently the best location for your home is underground.

26 feet below the ground, to be exact.

The home, which is currently for sale for 1.7 million dollars, is basically a real-life example of the '90s Brendan Fraser-Alicia Silverstone movie "Blast From The Past." It's an entire home, complete with fake scenery, built far underneath Las Vegas. How do you get there? You go through a completely normal-looking home, which exists as camouflage for the elevator that takes you down where the action is. And boy, is there action. The house has all the hallmarks of 1970s living (see: sauna and hot tubs), to the point where it could really just exist as a museum to the decade. The original owner, Girard "Jerry" B. Henderson, had built the home in 1978 and intended to, well, ride out the end of days in the comfort of his lair. Probably in the hot tub.
