Inside home on market for £250k – you’ll never guess what’s in basement
AN unassuming house has hit the market for just $250,000 – but there’s a surprise tucked away in the basement.
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Marietta, Pennsylvania, US, appears to be a typical family abode, with cosy furnishings and wooden accents.
But lurking downstairs is something far from normal.
An innocent wooden door leads to an ominous stone hallway, with stairs leading down into a cave hidden underneath the house.
The property, which was built in 1900, is described on the listing as a “special house.”
It read: “Starting outside, you see the beautiful patio area that opens up or closes for privacy. There is a hidden area for the trashcans too to keep the beautiful aesthetic.
“Enter the home through the kitchen which has tons of cabinet space and countertops. Once you walk into the living room you are welcomed with lots of natural light and the openness of the space.
“The home has plenty of beautiful accent pieces like the large wooden beams, built-in closets, hidden compartments, small windows near the stairs, and grand light fixtures.
“The bedrooms upstairs are huge with plenty of closet space. There are over seven off-street parking spaces and a good-sized backyard for enjoyment.
“Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention the actual cave in the basement! Bring your ideas, or fascination with history and come see this unique home!”
Pictures of the quirky home were shared on Facebook, where users were stunned by the surprise cave.
One person said: “That would be an amazing torture chamber! I mean cold storage. Yeah, cold storage.”
“I mean, if they want to sell it they should advertise it as a time out room, guaranteed to make your children listen,” another user joked.
Someone else said: “On the one hand, it’s creepy as hell. On the other, it could make a good wine cellar.”
“I find this incredibly creepy. I wonder if the neighbors know that there is a cave under their house, linked to their neighbor. All kinds of horror movies come to mind,” commented another person. [sic]
Someone else added: “Not every day you see a home complete with a place to keep your pet dragon…”
The listing comes after a group of British students revealed their “confusing home” – which too featured its own cave.
Taking to TikTok, the students showed of their home as they noted that the shower was is in a cave and also had a pothole in it.
According to the TikToker, he and his mates pay £130 a week each to live in the strange house.
The video has since been watched millions of times.
In other property news, a student has revealed the horrors of the filthy flat she forks out an eye-watering £1,000 a month for in London.
Plus, a sunny two-bed apartment in a Victorian townhouse has hit the market for £300,00 – but there’s a BIG catch.
