Icky house with creepy backyard man cave

This one is from the “rescue me” files.

Now, we don’t know if that pertains to the house alone, or the house and any kidnap victims who may be trapped in the dungeon.

When a reader named Ed sent me this listing in Sanford, Florida, my first impression was: torture chamber.

What do the symbols on the door mean? What does it mean!?

It’s probably a cold war era bunker. And the letters spell “DIE COMMIES” – or something like that.

But it is on the small side… maybe it was an old well? A root cellar? A time-out room for kids?? An S&M chamber???

The house that comes with this subterranean anomaly is equally repulsive.

Let’s just say it is a bit of a fixer.

So how does the listing agent spin this beaut?

With a good portion of elbow grease this home on a desirable double lot in downtown Sanford can be transformed in the home of your dreams. Original hardwood floors can be re-finished to give the home its former elegance. The spacious layout and addition in the back of the home (including the unfinished second floor) provide plenty of living space. On top of that the guest apartment in the backyard can make a great income property. A highlight of this home is its fenced backyard with tropical landscaping. But wait until you see this: a literal (man)cave! Yes, there are steps in the backyard that lead you into a small cave! Imagine the potential of this unique backyard when it comes to entertaining or simply impressing your guests. If you are up for the challenge, this home can be yours and you will be able to soon take advantage of the beautiful Downtown Sanford lifestyle with lots of restaurants, shops, bars and breweries as well as a very active community life!

Wow, that’s impressive. The description makes it sound like you could have your own backyard grotto à la Playboy Mansion.

Your own backyard cave! Hours of fun!

Survivalists and sadists take note – this place won’t last long.
