An unbelievably cool house in San Antonio may appear like your average, run-of-the-mill house on the outside — but it’s likely beyond anything you’ve ever seen before.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom Texas residence comes with its very own cavern, and it is akin to something straight out of an adventure film. And it’s listed for $875,000.
“Do you love Natural Bridge Caverns?” the listing on JB Goodwin Realtors says. “If so, take a look at this one-of-a-kind park-like property. This must-see property boasts a cavern of its own. Over $87K in excavating, lighting, electricity & improving a natural cavern on this lovely 2.56-acre property in the exclusive 7 Hills Ranch POA surrounded by 3500 acres of Nature Conservancy land.”
According to a news release on the home, the cave was discovered by the residence’s owners in 2004.
“They noticed that a significant amount of cool air would sometimes blow from a small 1-inch diameter hole in the ground, causing the grass and weeds to wave back and forth (caused by a difference in atmospheric pressure: sometimes it blows, sometimes sucks air),” the release said. “When small leaves were dropped on the blowing air, they were blown two-three feet into the air. When another blowing hole was found three feet away from the first hole, they decided ‘there must be something down there.’”
The cave was confirmed by geologists from Natural Bridge Caverns and St. Mary’s University. Caves in the area are “100,000 to 2,000,000 years old,” the release said, making property even more impressive.
While the caverns are the primary draw of the property, the 2,745-square-foot home itself comes with some excellent features as well, including:
Huge walk-in closets
Plenty of storage
Fans on the social media real estate page Zillow Gone Wild became quickly obsessed with the property and flocked to the popular page’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
And yes, there were a lot of “Batman” references.
“Bruce Wayne’s suburban retreat,” one person tweeted.
“HOLY CRAP..... it’s an incognito batcave!” another compared.
“I would cry non stop with joy if I had my own personal cave,” someone gushed.
“All the retired Batman villains seeing Wayne manor for sale on Zillow,” one person joked.
“Buys, occupies, and immediately becomes brooding crime fighter obsessed with flying rodents,” another wrote on Facebook.
“If I bought that house, it’d pay for itself,” someone said. “I would have cavern tours on the weekends and rent it out for parties.”
“They really dropped the ball by not building the house directly over that cave entrance, if the kitchen island had a secret door to that I totally make an offer,” another noted.
The listing is held by Lori Largen and is currently “pending.”
