Spin city: inside an $18 million bomb shelter-turned-party pad in Las Vegas - in pictures

The underground home includes a pool, lawn, terrace with waterfall and five bedrooms

It may be located 26 feet below the surface of Spencer Street, but this former bomb shelter-turned-underground home has all the trappings of a party pad that befits the bright and bizarre city of Las Vegas.

Originally built in the 1960s, the shelter was designed to be a luxurious home for Avon cosmetics executive Girard Henderson. It is located 15 minutes from the city's famous Strip, and is on the market for $18 million (Dh66m).

The living area spans 5,000 square feet, while the site itself measures nearly 15,000 square feet. Within lie five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a chef's kitchen, combined living and dining rooms, a games room, sauna and a large bar.

The grounds, meanwhile, include a swimming pool, a second outdoor kitchen, a waterfall and 500 feet of floor-to-ceiling murals of city and mountain views, complete with lighting that simulates sunlight, dusk and dawn.

Novelty aside, the home offers layers of privacy, located as it is below a gated 1.05-acre plot of land under its caretaker's house, which can be accessed via two staircases and an elevator.
