Underground Home Is Maryland's Most Bizarre Hidey-Hole

New, 6 comments

Sometimes, you just want to get away from it all — the traffic, the work, the noise — and just find a nice, quiet space where no one can find you. With this underground home, you not only get some peace and quiet, you get a nice warm hug from Mother Earth as well as a perfect hideout for a zombie apocalypse. This 3,300-square-foot underground home was built by eco-focused Colorado-based developer Formworks Buildings Inc. with a presumed taste for Hobbit homes. In the front, its colonial facade causes it to look like any other normal listing on the Prince George's County market, but in the back, you can see that half of the home is engulfed by the neighboring hill. While living underground may not be the sexiest thing in the world, it's apparently one of the most affordable as the listing uses geothermal heating and cooling, causing the utility bills to average $150/month. If interested in taking advantage of the lay of the land by living inside it, the asking price is $425,000.
