A 1970s Cold War Underground Nuclear Bunker (12pics&video)

Are you in the market for a new home...?? 
How about a lovely 1970s style home built 26-feet underground with the capability of surviving (incase of nuclear fallout) within for up to one-year without resurfacing...?? If so, your in luck... because this one is for sale for only $1.7-million: 
The subterranean Las Vegas home is 3970 Spenser St. Flamingo Road boasts a 15,200-square foot basement beneath a two story home above ground. From the street, number 3970 looks like any other American home, except with a few extra ventilation and air conditioning units planted around the yard. Camouflaged by clusters of rocks, an entrance with an elevator takes you down to the underground lair. Another stairway is hidden inside a shed. 

The house was built in 1978 to withstand a nuclear blast... by businessman Girard "Jerry" B. Henderson. The house is pretty much a time capsule of 1970s decor and the surrounding walls of the basement offer a 360-degree mural of an elaborate outdoor landscape. 
The underground self-sustaining home is complete with a fully operational kitchen, three bedrooms and a bathroom. The property is is not too shabby either, with fake trees scattered about, four-hole putting green, swimming pool, two jacuzzis, a sauna, dance floor, wet bar and BBQ grill. The light in the sky (ceiling) can also adjusted for the time of day sunset, dusk and night.
