This 1955 1-story home was first listed in July at $379,900. Just south of Beechnut and west of S. Rice Ave. in Meyerland, the 2,359-sq.-ft., 3-bedroom, 2-bath, 1-garage mod was priced down this month to $350,000. This exterior shot shows the home sitting back on a relatively expansive 11,067-sq.-ft. lot, but the listing also reveals something else, described as an “extra room” that’s downright subterranean.
It’s this 21 ft. by 8 ft. basement/shelter, clearly outfitted with plenty of paraphernalia and entertainment options to get you through the harshest of nuclear winters.

The light-filled kitchen:
With a nook of its own:
The listing mentions 3 bedrooms; one appears to have been used as an office:
One of the 2 bathrooms:
Off the kitchen is this utility room . . .
. . . which appears to open up to a small patio:
County records show that the home was remodeled in 1988. The listing doesn’t explain where the basement/shelter is located or how you might get into it, though it does mention rather ominously that it has “access from the inside.”
