Humble Arizona shed hides extraordinary bunker house

You should never judge a book by its cover, as this a humble shed in the American state of Arizona proves.

Located on a 1.7-hectare property, the unassuming structure contains a staircase which acts as a hidden entrance to a subterranean home. But it isn’t the only entrance.

Adjacent to the shed, an unconcealed pit houses a staircase which spirals down into the ground. The pit also allows the house to have windows – a lack thereof being a massive drawback to living below the ground.

Inside the house, originally built in 1982, you’ll find 193 square metres of renovated space; a large bathtub and granite countertop being among the top selling features.

If you’ve always dreamed of living a clandestine life, the home is currently on the market for $US200,000.
