In Buffalo, Texas, there's a 40-acre property with a house that was made for someone who wants total privacy. The home, which is on the market for $2.25 million, is completely underground. While it clearly doesn't get any natural light, the home's walls and ceilings feature super colorful paintings that brighten the subterranean space.
"I'm not sure that I know of another one like this in Texas, not completely underground, the way this one is," the listing's agent Terri Alexander tells realtor.com. "It’s different. It's going to take somebody very eclectic that wants to purchase a house—because it is out there."
Located off the pond, the home's entrance—which is circular and surrounded by greenery— resembles a hobbit hole. But Alexander points out that the entrance isn't actually small; the size of the property just makes it appear that way. Past the entrance, a tunnel leads to the main house's front door with a blue, red, green, and purple mural surrounding it. Made up of five interconnected domes, the 3,000-square-foot home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an open living, dining, and kitchen area. According to the listing, there are also three other rooms.
Three artists created the murals found on the walls and ceilings throughout the home, realtor.com reports. Almost every room features themed murals, some of which include sandy beaches with bright blue skies and oceans. "I was really pulled in by the artwork. It’s quirky, like the dogs on the pantry door," Alexander tells realtor.com.
Aboveground, the spacious property has a two workshops, a garage, and a utility dome, which also features a colorful painting. Plus, there are spring-fed ponds, a well, and garden space.
