Paranoia will destroy ya, but it will almost make you build some major underground glamour! Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson, a wealthy businessman, built this underground family home in Las Vegas in 1978 to withstand a nuclear blast. Apparently, Henderson was convinced that things with the Soviets weren’t going to end well in the Cold War, equipping the house to allow it to be lived in for up to a year without resurfacing.
You enter the house via an elevator camouflaged by clusters of rocks, and won’t miss the outside world at all because according to Messyness Chic:
The “garden” includes a four-hole putting green, a swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, dance floor, bar, BBQ (camouflaged in a rock) and adjustable light settings for “sunset,” “day,” “dusk” and “night”. The night setting comes complete with twinkling stars.
The house was lost to foreclosure last summer so you can pick it up today for a cool $1.7 million. Check out more photos after the jump.
