Las Vegas luxury bomb shelter up for sale
LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Would you like to live underground? Yes, literally underground. If so, here is your chance! That is, if you have $18 million to burn.
A fully furnished underground bomb shelter house is being sold in Las Vegas.
According to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, “in the 1960s, thousands of Americans began building bomb shelters with the hope that their families might survive a hydrogen bomb.”
But Avon Cosmetics executive Girard Henderson wanted more than just a below-ground functional shelter. He wanted something with a little more flare.
The shelter measures nearly 15,000-square-feet with two utility rooms, two staircases and an elevator. The four-bedroom, four-bath house inside the shelter sits 26 feet below the surface. It measures 5,000-square-feet all by itself.
The grounds around the house include a 450-square-foot guest house, lawns, swimming pool with waterfall, two spas, outdoor barbeque, trees with 500 linear feet of floor-to-ceiling murals of city and mountain views with lighting that simulates day, dusk, night and dawn.
It also has a mid-century chef’s kitchen, large combined living and dining rooms with wood-burning fireplace in the living room, game room, sauna, large bar and almost endless venues for entertaining both inside and out.
In addition to the privacy of underground, it is located under a standard 2,316-square-foot house that could be used for a caretaker on a gated 1.05 acres of land with two two-car garages.
