26FT UNDERGROUND SAFE HOUSE IN VEGAS

If shit hits the fan and the end of the world is definitely nigh, then it's safe to say all those sci-fi and action movies definitely paid off for some overly prepared and paranoid American. While Americans will be tooling up and living out their favourite Spielberg films, I think it's safe to say England's outlook will be more reminiscent of Shaun of the Dead or an episode of Misfits and Top Boy mixed into one - so, still pretty bad.
 
But while we're all hiding out in our favourite pubs rationing the pork scratchings and straws, there'll be a particular household in Las Vegas who are living the post nuclear explosion dream.
 
 
This house in Nevada has recently been listed for sale and it's all yours for a measly $1.7 million. The USP is that it's built 26 feet underground and is a safe house against nuclear blasts. Built in the late 70's by an American entrepreneur who feared a nuclear Armageddon during the cold war, he built this place as his second underground home, you know, in case he got bored in the first one.
 
The property boasts a large open-plan living room with an overall theme of 100% kitsch which is great if your name is Barbara and you're 70 with a few dogs... or if your name's Alice and you're a 24 with an awful taste in furniture. Basically it's Kevin McCloud's nightmare.
 
 
Boasting several bedrooms, a hot tub, faux tress, a dance floor, three bathrooms, a mini golf course and a swimming pool so if nuclear winter doesn't come, it's still a great spot to film the next Big Brother. There's also three light settings for morning, noon and night so everything will seem just fine.
 
Apparently the property was only designed for a family to live in for one year. It doesn't say what the plan is after that, but I imagine it goes a little something along the lines of they all die.
