This 17,000sqft underground house near Vegas is the perfect place to wait out a nuclear apocalypse, and it's for sale

What do you do when you've got a boatload of cash thanks to working in the aerospace industry in the '70s, yet didn't think your products could properly defend our nation? Build a giant underground bomb shelter outside Vegas, which is covered by a totally normal-looking home with a realllly big backyard, and features $1 million in imported marble, a giant subterranean "yard" surrounded by 360-degrees of hand-painted 3D murals, a pool with dual jacuzzis, a dance floor/stage for parties, a sweet fountain, a putting green, an indoor barbeque hidden in a faux rock, and a lighting system that replicates day, sunset, or night.

And now it's for sale, for a cool $1.7mil. Let's take a look at the place where you could throw some seriously underground parties.

... with a slightly-larger-than-usual barren yard, and a cave in the back corner.

Your neighbors over there will be totally jealous of this sweet fountain.
Not a real well. Not real chickens, either.
