This 1970’s Residence Is Going for $18 Million, but Not for the Reason You Think

If you're looking for somewhere to isolate during this coronavirus pandemic, and want a quite and solitary place to spend your days locked away from society, maybe you should consider purchasing this Cold-War era bomb shelter that will suit your every need. That is... if you have a spare $18 Million laying round...

During the Cold-War, a lot of things were uncertain, and people were doing everything they could to protect themselves and their loved ones from what seemed like impending doom. Not unlike our current situation with the lockdown set in place to attempt to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

So if you think hiding away until the smoke clears is as good a solution as any, maybe tucking yourself way in this underground bunker is the right move for you!

A man named Girard B. “Jerry” Henderson who founded a number of companies, built this extravagant underground residence in the 70s after founding a company called Underground World Homes and even had an exhibit at the New York World's Fair where he promoted the concept of living underground. He even lived in his own underground residence until his death in 1983.

Does $18,000,000 seem reasonable for your own personal 5000 square foot underground residence, complete with a swimming pool, dance floor and bar? We sure think so. Check out the video above to see some images of the amazing underground shelter!
