When you're in the market for a new home, there are a lot of factors influencing whether or not you put in an offer.
The history of the property, the neighbors, and what needs fixing are all important elements that should be carefully considered. But how about the house's ability to protect you when the world ends? If that's something you're looking for, then this is the place for you.
From the front, this house in Clinton, Maryland, looks completely normal.
But when you move to the side, you'll notice something very interesting — namely that the rest of it is built directly into the land under 25 feet of dirt.
Designed by architect Dale Percy and constructed by Formworks Building, the earth-sheltered home was intended to be energy efficient and easy on the environment.
But it looks more like a doomsday prepper's dream.
Would you buy this house?
It's a real shame that it's no longer on the market. It sure would come in handy in the zombie apocalypse.
