Incredible Mansion Has Fake Town Hidden In The Basement

Incredible Mansion Has Fake Town Hidden In The Basement

This is inside of an incredible seven-bedroom mansion that comes complete with an entire model town in its basement.

The home, which is on the market for $4,500,000 (£3.6m), has all the usual features you would expect for a place of it's price. A heated pool, a pool house, a 'breezeway' to said pool house, 11 bathrooms, 10 fireplaces and so on.

But one rather surprising attribute to add to the list is an entire model town - complete with fake shops - such as a quaint post office, antique cars and even a cinema.

When you go into the secret town inside the home, which is situated in the prestigious Round Hill enclave of Potomac, Maryland, US, you notice that the floor resembles that of a cobbled street and the windows of the shops feature confectionery, sporting equipment as well as household goods.

According to The Sun, it also has memorabilia from different points throughout the 20th Century.

The entrance to the cinema even has advertisements outside which give customers the options of Mary Poppins, The Exorcist and Plantoon - films from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Sydney Waterfront Mansion Sells For Incredible $95m Despite Pandemic

Other 'shops' that can be seen as a flower shop, a tattoo studio and even a massage parlour.

The listing for the property quite bizarrely doesn't give viewers a nod to the unique floor of the home.

Instead the description simply reads: "A unique, first time offering of a magnificent, gated estate on four acres featuring 7 bedrooms/8 baths in the Main house, a two bedroom/1 bath guest house with full kitchen, and a pool house with full kitchen and bath.

"Also on the property is a lighted, newly resurfaced tennis court and heated pool. The four acres is already divided into two separate parcels. A driveway can be added to access the guest house for a private entrance. Opportunity to purchase 2 acre parcel next door for a total of 6 acres."

The pictures were posted on to Twitter with the caption: "My friend found a listing for an otherwise normal mcmansion that seemingly has a little.... fake... town (?) in the basement. It looks like one of those children's museums."

People loved the snaps with one replying, saying: "Aw man that rocks honestly," another added: "It's cute...if you're gonna be rich please be a weird eccentric."

If you fancy a move to Potomac (and obviously just happen to be able to club together £3.6 mil) you need to get on to the good people at Washington Fine Properties and let us have a visit for bringing it to your attention...
