Vintage Fallout Bunker Features A Full House And Yard

underground-house-1.jpg

This is a shot of the fallout bunker built in 1978 below 3970 Spencer Street in Las Vegas. Above ground is a normal looking two story house. But 26-feet below the home (accessed via hidden elevator or stairs) is a 15,200-square foot basement room containing another full house and fake yard (including pool and two jacuzzis!). I say we try to rent it for New Years and throw an end of the world themed party. And if the neighbors still complain about the noise you'll know WE'RE DOING IT F***ING RIGHT.

The house is pretty much a time capsule of 1970s decor, with those handy little amenities such as a toaster built into the kitchen wall. There are three bedrooms in total, one in a guest house.


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, naturally.

Both homes together are currently on the market for around $2-million, so if 1,000 of us all chip in two grand apiece we can buy it and use it as a time share. I will live there permanently though, you can just come and visit. And if I were you I'd keep your fingers crossed you happen to be one of the lucky visitors when I push the big red button and put an end to the above-ground world.

Hit the jump for a picture tour, starting with the house above ground. There's also a video.

    Looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie.

  • Sarah Beth

    Hmm, I wonder if I could just rent out the fallout shelter? It's kind of like a carriage house....

  • Tanner La Marche

    I have to say the idea about a 1000 of us all chipping in 2000 a piece is worth it. Just sayin, way more then a 1000 people follow geekologie everyday. Think about it. I'm in.

    Needs more beer

  • Totally reminds me of "Blast From The Past." Now I'm sad.

  • bigalosu

    I was trying to remember the name of that movie!

  • I feel a little self-conscious writing a comment with all the other intelligent sounding comments here, but I feel I should. I believe you're right on many of your points in this article.

    Leave my elevator alone.

  • Ben

  • Lee

    Did anyone elses brain not only flash to the Fallout: New Vegas music below.. but also the trailer scenes itself, or is their CAT-5 wired into my veins?

    aka - the most epic party house ever.

  • poopienoodles

    how exactly are you supposed to use that grill?

  • porkleaker

    Ventilation system.

  • Job Genders

    Ventilation system? Lol you forgot that it is a Fallout shelter? Wouldn't the air in a bunker be a bit scarce to be using it for a friggin' barbecue? And even so, the exhaust gasses would be draining your powersupply. And where do you keep that meat frozen for that long?

  • porkleaker

    Don't ask me, I didn't build it. But if you watched the video they asked the same question and they were told there was a ventilation system.

  • Carissa Lynn Van Raak

    THE BATHROOM!!!! <3 I would live here in a heartbeat.

  • Mario Rosales

    booy, this is a real blast from the past

  • Tyler AitchKay

    god damn it, you beat me to it
