From the outside, it looks like a typical Las Vegas home with a lot of property.

That's because this home is hiding a huge secret: A self sustaining underground lair in case of, say... a nuclear war.

This underground lair was built in 1978 by Girard B. Henderson, a very wealthy man concerned about the Cold War. And if Henderson was going to wait out the end of the world underground, he was going to do it in style.

To get there, you must take an elevator.

The murals took three years to paint. Each reflects where the owner lived, including Colorado and Los Angeles.

The home has been purchased a couple times since he first put it on the market, but it's currently owned by a bank after a foreclosure.

I guess no one is preparing for the end of the world these days...
