From the outside, the home looks like your typical $4.5 million mansion with seven bedrooms, a pool, a tennis court, and a two-bedroom guest house.
But scroll through the listing's 89 photos and you stumble upon what looks like a small town centre in the basement, and it is large enough to fit an actual car, or three.
Currently up for sale in the affluent DC suburb of Potomac, Maryland, this estate is not wanting for space.
Measuring just over 12,000 square feet, it has every amenity one can expect from a property that is on sale for $4.5 million: seven bedrooms, eight full baths, 10 fireplaces and a four-car garage, and extraordinarily – a basement with a life-sized town.
Modelled after the town centres from the turn of the century, it has stone-paved thoroughfares and 15 brick storefronts (including a movie theatre, massage parlour and a post office), several fleshed out with realistic interiors. The space is so large that it also fits three real cars.
Fantastic for children and adults alike, this palatial home rests on a full four acres of land with a gated perimeter. Though the main house comes accompanied by a two-bedroom guesthouse, a pool house, and a fully illuminated tennis court so players can keep their matches going even after the sun sets.
