This underground home in Las Vegas is for sale for $18 million. It was built in 1978 inside a 15,000-square-foot bunker of steel-reinforced concrete.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in an underground home originally built as a bomb shelter?

In 1978, businessman and Avon Cosmetics executive Girard Henderson built one of the most luxurious doomsday bunkers in Las Vegas -- years after Americans were scrambling to find safe shelter during the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis in the 1950s and ’60s. It was common at the time to build backyard or basement shelters stocked with supplies to survive a possible missile attack.

“As years went by and the threat of an atomic-bomb war became a distant memory, most of the bomb shelters were turned into playrooms, food storage or simply abandoned” 

But now Henderson’s unique home is for sale for $18 million.

The 5,000-square-foot house, grounds, and amenities were all built inside a 15,000-square-foot steel-reinforced bunker.

Amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, people are once again trying to find the best and safest place during the outbreak, according to toptenrealestatedeals.com. The outlet said the Las Vegas bunker home may be the “perfect place to ride out the 2020 pandemic and have fun doing it.

”The interior of the home still has its 1970s-styled kitchen, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a great room, stone fireplaces, a game room, and a theater room, according to the outlet. The master suite has vaulted beamed ceilings and a hideaway television console at the foot of the bed that rises with the push of a button. It also has a generator and a 1,000-gallon water tank.

But the most unique part of the bunker is the “outdoor” space filled with artificial grass, fake trees, a swimming pool, and a barbecue disguised as a boulder. The hand-painted murals in the “outdoor” area use lighting to simulate night and day, with views of mountains, valleys, woods, and a jetliner view over Las Vegas.

According to a Forbes report, the mansion also has two jacuzzis, a sauna, a putting green, a nightclub with a bar and dance floor, and a guest house. The home has cellphone reception, cable, and internet below ground. Air-conditioning units were recently replaced, among other infrastructure upgrades, the report said.
