Calling All Prospective Spelunking Home Buyers Willing To Relocate

Cave domicile
Cave domicile

(Not the catchiest headline ever, but hey. It’s apt. If you can come up with a better one I’ll gladly insert it.)

To steal our editor’s thunder a little bit, what can 300K get ya in SF? A one bedroom TIC in the Mission? Well, out in Festus, Missouri, it’ll get you a 17,000 foot custom cave dwelling!

Up for auction, right now, on EBay. It’s a pretty remarkable and Quixotic tale. Check it out:

Festus, Missouri, Cave Domicile

    Wow; it’s the Bat Cave!

    What are we doing living in rainy expensive San Francisco when Bat Caves are going for a song?

    living in a cave-house would be ideal; nothing but peace and quiet all the time

    Easy on wonderful San Francisco, I have only two coffee choices in the morning. I lived in Cali for about three years prior to returning to Missouri. Thank you for your kind words and I hope you all can visit some day. I think we are close to reaching private investment / financing so we can keep our home. Perhaps one of you San Frans can swap homes for a vacation next year.

    Again, Thanks.

    It seems as if a white knight came along in the form of a private lender mortgage.
