The multimillion-dollar price tag on this windowless shack outside Kansas City, Missouri is inexplicable — until you see what lies underground.

In the 500-person town of Polo, a peculiar property has grabbed the internet’s attention with its unassuming above-ground appearance and the extensive doomsday shelter below. 

“This is the most unique property in Missouri,” Colleen Roberts of ReeceNichols Country Club Plaza’s Allison Rank Team told The Post of the offering, which is currently seeking $2 million. More unusual than the listing itself is the fact it’s even up for grabs on eBay for the same sum. “No one would ever suspect 10,000 square feet of underground space on this 10-acre plot of land.”

The property, Roberts added, has “so many different opportunities” for both commercial and residential uses.

Inside the shack — which sits rather ominously alone in a field next to a yellow shipping container — is an industrial-appearing lobby with a set of stairs leading multiple flights down into the earth.

Once inside the bunker, a sprawling, apocalypse-proof home awaits.

There are two bathrooms, a kitchen, a soundproof music studio with recording facilities, a pool room, a glass-blowing studio, a recreation area with 16-foot-high ceilings, a gym and room for multiple bedrooms. If the end of days comes, the owner will certainly have plenty to keep busy.

According to the listing, the space was constructed for an exorbitant cost in the 1960s (the listing estimates the amount would equate to more than $34 million today). It also boasts a variety of safety features, including 2.5-foot-thick concrete walls, electromagnetic pulse-resistant copper shielding, two 3,000-pound blast doors, an emergency escape hatch and a 177-foot communication tower. 

“In an era where even technology titans are grabbing headlines for their investments in personal safety, such as his end-of-the-world bunker, this property emerges as a true testament to visionary planning,” says the listing.

This for-sale offering was also featured on the Instagram account Zillow Gone Wild.

“If the Breaking Bad lab was a nice house,” joked one commenter. 

“You could close on this before the 2024 election,” wrote another.
