There’s No House In The World Like This One In Kansas

Is it just me, or does it seem like unique homes are all the rage these days? Forget cookie cutter. People want tiny, unconventional or just plain different when it comes to their homes. While there are plenty of these unique homes around the Sunflower State, Dover’s Subterra Castle may just be the most uncommon of them all.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Built in the late 1950s, this Cuban-Missile-Crisis-turned-spacious-home boasts a two story apartment, state-of-the-art kitchens, a 47 ton drive-in door, 11,000 sq. ft. of underground shop and garage, a solar greenhouse entry and so much more.

The most unique part of this unconventional home, however, may just be owners Ed and Dianna Peden, who purchased the “home” for a mere $40,000 and turned it into a large, yet cozy living space that oozes both personality and history.

If you are interested in owning one of these unique castles of your own, you’re in luck, as the Pedens show and sell these gems through 20th Century Castles, a company that re-sells former safe shelters. For more information about the Pedens, their home or business, be sure to visit Subterra Castle’s official website.
