Mathew Fulkerson and his wife Leigh Ann pose at their Subterra Airbnb located in a former underground missile silo base near Eskridge, Kansas, USA.

It was designed to house a nuclear warhead six decades ago – but now, this Cold War silo is the perfect spot for a mini break at just $133 a night. The underground mansion has been marketed as a “truly unique experience”, with the former Atlas E missile base transformed into a luxury Airbnb listing.

The 33 acre property is just 15 miles southwest of Topeka, Kansas, with the house itself completely underground. The space is decorated in bohemian eclectic style for its guests, who can make the most of the hot tub and have tours around the quirky space, even checking out the launchpad control.
Ed and Dianna Peden own the silo and have lived there since 1994, listing it as the perfect place for a history buff, or anyone wanting a unique place to stay the night.

They said: “The underground missile site has a fascinating Cold War history for you to discover. Guests will also be inspired by the story of its transformation from a bunker into a home”.

The impressive space is about 18,000 square feet, while the outside area offers an outdoor pond, and moon deck. Visitors will also be able to make the most of wildlife, and can expect to see the occasional mountain lion, coyotes, deer and skunks. It is believed to be the first and only Airbnb located in a converted missile silo.
