When most of us think of our dream home, the words “entrapment vestibule,” “blast door,” and “escape hatch,” probably don’t come to mind. But when you live in a Cold-War era missile silo, those features tend to come standard.
That’s exactly what lies underneath homeowner Alexander Michael’s mysterious door. He’s turned this bit of 1960s history (where Air Force crews used to live and work) into a subterranean abode. The industrial style (and noteworthy lack of sunlight) might not be for everyone, but owning 8 acres of land, and a 25,000 square-foot home 30 feet below isn’t too shabby.
“I have no idea why everyone isn’t amazed by the extraordinary things humanity makes,” he says. “And when I actually got a chance to not only visit them, but own something extraordinary, I just jumped on it. No questions asked.”
You’ve certainly got us there, Andrew.
