Vegas nuclear bunker home
By Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson
Recently a property came up for auction in Las Vegas — a 16,936 square-foot nuclear bunker home on 1.05 acres at 3970 Spencer Street. The vendor is asking for $1.7 million. The home is decorated to keep occupants calm with fake grass, “natural” light, hollow-plastic rocks and staged water features.
A local magazine has compiled a comprehensive account of the home and its original owners (Girard “Jerry” B. Henderson), who made their fortune from Avon cosmetics, before entering the armageddon home market in the 1960s. The home up for sale was built in 1978 according to the realtors listing, but is noted to be 1971 according to the family records.
For those who are really interested, there’s even a terrible video tour (with commentary) available.
It sold for just over a million and the new owners said they did not care about farts smelling the place up.
