A sweet underground bomb shelter in Vegas is for sale, and color us interested

There’s no denying that old homes can hold a lot of mysteries, and you never know what you’re gonna find in the basement or in the attic of said home. Maybe it’s treasure, or a love letter or some old comic books. Or maybe, it’s a fallout shelter from the 1970’s, that’s so gaudy and fabulous, that it might just be right place to ride out the future apocalypse.

Can you imagine nailing your birdie on this groovy green, while the mutant zombie hordes wander the wasteland?

He even had a town painted on the walls, to make everything seem normal.

Looks relaxing, I guess.

He even had a pool put in, though I’m not sure where he’d replenish the water, or keep it clean.

Looks romantic enough to help re-populate the Earth, though.

He even had a fountain put in, to make everything seem more idyllic and normal.

This is what the inside of the open-concept and unfurnished house looks like.

Plenty of room to entertain some imaginary friends.

But it does have a wet bar and a fireplace, so really… I’m thinking this could also be a sick love nest, even if there wasn’t an apocalypse.

The bedroom’s got a nice 70’s chic look to it. Apparently, it was a law in the 70’s, that every room needed to be loud.

But that view, though.

It’d make me go insane.

The second bedroom had a nice “let’s pretend the end of days isn’t here” type of wallpaper.

How about that kitchen. Came with a built in coffee maker and toaster, and is a perfect time capsule for the decorating aesthetic at the time.

Here’s where things get a little sketchy. There’s pink shag carpeting in the bathroom.

Really Jerry? Aren’t you afraid of gross carpets, mould and other crazy shit festering in your hermetically sealed bomb shelter?

I would be.

But at least there’s a whirlpool tub. That’s all you need after a long day of avoiding radiation – a hot bath.

The guest house is pretty quaint. Has a mini-kitchen so you don’t disturb your host, and right outside is a BBQ hidden in a boulder.

Awkward

That’s a nice boulder.

Though, what would you be grilling down there, I wonder? No where is it mentioned that he’s got a storeroom or giant walk-in freezer for all that food you’d need.

Review Journal

Fortunately, Henderson never got to use the shelter for it’s original intention, and he and his wife passed away in the 80’s. The house has changed hands over the years, and is currently run by The Society for the Preservation of Near Extinct Species – a secretive and mysterious group that’s looking into extending the human lifespan.

They do offer tours though, which is nice.

Maybe they’ll let us come visit?
