A two-bedroom property up for sale in Las Vegas is creating quite a stir and it’s all because the property includes a luxurious bunker 26 feet underground.

The underground level was built in the 1970′s by wealthy businessman Girard ‘Jerry’ B. Henderson. The bunker was built to withstand nuclear blasts during the Cold War.

The underground level looks nothing like the typical bunkers you picture in your head or see in the movies. It has a heated pool and a water fountain, a sauna, two bedrooms, a guest house, an indoor putting course, a bar, and even a dance floor. There is also an underground yard that surrounds the home on all sides. The interior of the house and the overall design aesthetics are reminiscent of the 1970′s.

When Henderson and his wife died in the 80′s, the place passed on to a relative, but it was foreclosed and is now for sale for $1.7 million. The entire property includes the two-bedroom underground level, the one-bedroom underground guesthouse, the two-story and two-bedroom house above ground, the four-car garage, and over an acre of property.
