Mid-Century Time Capsule With Bomb Shelter in Rolling Hills Estates Asks $2.4 Million

Mid-century style never fully goes out of fashion, but anyone looking to really live the Cold War-era lifestyle can't do much better than this 1961 four-bedroom, three bathroom home in Rolling Hills Estates. It's got all the 1960s accoutrement one could ask for, from the abundance of wood panelling to the stone walls and fireplaces. But to see the real pièce de résistance that ensures this a true relic of the time, take a trip down the spiral staircase in the game room to the bomb shelter in the basement.

The home's listing says the bomb shelter would make a "great potential wine cellar," but a real retro enthusiast would stock that baby up with canned goods and flashlight batteries for the impending nuclear doomsday. The house is a bit of a bargain too, because the $2.4 million price also includes the 21,000-square-foot parcel of land behind the home—perfect for building additional bomb shelters.

Be sure to check out the home's virtual tour to see some indoor waterfall action and a better view of that rock garden in the master bathroom.
