Ok, break open that piggy bank. For a mere $3,000,000, you can own your own underground very cleverly designed cave home nestled into rock on 2.8 acres in Festus, Missouri. I guess they are downsizing due to the economy. They just can’t afford the home any longer and have 90 days to pull off a sale. I somehow think that the Stimulus plan wasn’t meant for a situation like this, but who knows?
Apparently, this was a famous cave at one time. It’s divided into three chambers which now are used this way:
The front chamber houses the main part of the 3-bedroom finished house.
The middle chamber holds the laundry room, storage, and a spare bath. The middle chambe(r) made a great party room. 80 feet by 80 feet.
The back chamber still has the stage where Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, Ike and Tina Turner, the MC5 and many other bands performed.
You for sure will be far enough away from burglars, muggers and any other assorted types that seem to be growing in numbers in this economy. Considering the looks of this place, if someone took the time to trek to your home, he has already earned whatever he takes. Besides that, you could actually blow somebody away near this place, never to be found again.
Your mother-in-law probably won’t like the location, so that could be a plus, too.
I don’t imagine the Postmaster General will arrange mail delivery to your door though, but small price to pay. Get a postal box in town. Or better yet, just hide out and don’t pick up your mail at all and instruct them to put the junk mail in the circular file for you. Bank of America won’t be able to get those weekly mailers to you–the ones that pimp a low interest rate in hopes you will crank up the balance before they hike the rate up to 26%, hoping you won’t notice.
I”ll bet your pets will love it there too. Lots of rock for the kitties to climb, no more sharpening those claws on the couch. Great place for the dog to run and play Lassie too.
Apparently, plenty of other people feel the same way about the place. The seller has received so many questions that Ebay can’t handle them. So he’s got another “Caveland” site for questions from possible buyers. No bids yet though, so I imagine plenty of dreamers are asking questions. And there are also the Caring folks, like the person suggesting everybody donate $5 to help the owners keep their home. A couple of million donations and Poof! Their problems are over.
Not a bad looking place for a cave, either. It has 15,000 or 17,000 square feet (not sure which). This means you could fit your entire existing house inside of here and it wouldn’t be in the way at all.
Must be a bitch to clean though.
Interesting entrance too, if that’s what this is. I’m kind of cave-dumb when we get past stalagmites. Whatever this is, it’s a modern-day Batman’s dream! I bet the religious solicitors you’ve been trying to get rid of for decades won’t be stopping by. No kids being forced to go door to door to raise yet more money for their schools, while you are still festering over your last tax payment. Probably no newspaper delivery either. You would just have to get your propaganda elsewhere. I do see a driveway so there obviously is a road to the entrance. You would have to block it off if you really want to get away. Those religous solicitors can be tenacious if they see a driveway.
Now all you need is the $3,000,000. A Dealbreaker would occur if you couldn’t get the internet there, right?
