Ordinary four-bedroom home on sale for $3.4million – but it comes with a STUNNING secret

A FOUR-bedroom home is on the market for $3.4million and comes with its own hidden underground cave.

The price of the humble abode, located in Versailles, Missouri, isn’t just for the property itself but for the land that spans a whopping 223 acres.



The home, which also has four bathrooms, also comes with a shop and museum.

Jacob’s Cave describes itself as the “world’s largest geode” and is renowned for its prehistoric bones, ceiling sponge work, and reflective pools.

The natural wonder was first unearthed back in 1875 and became a tourist attraction in 1932.

Evidence of six ice ages and three earthquakes can be seen when you venture inside the underground jewel.

The first earthquake happened 42-46 million years ago, while the third was the 8.2 magnitude New Madrid Earthquakes that rocked the state in 1811 and 1812.

Seismologists believe that the impacts of the quakes could be felt across an area of 50,000 square miles.

Impressive pictures show the spectacular rock formations and a hole formed from the outside allows light to shine through the cave.

Lights have been fitted to make it accessible to tourists and pathways are fully accessible.

The property is currently on the market with Justin Swast at Midwest Land Group for $3.42 million. 

The listing says: “Its beauty is one of its own, as you will see every type of cave formation imaginable.”

Tourists walk down a bridge to enter the cave. A shelter protects the natural wonder and its temperature stays around 53F all year round – whatever the weather outside.

Its listing states: “You will not want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime investment opportunity just north of Lake of the Ozarks.”

The Lake of the Ozarks is renowned for its serpentine shape and has gained the nickname “Puff the Magic Dragon”.

It's thought to be either the largest or second-largest reservoir in Missouri after the Truman Reservoir.

It has a surface area of around 54,000 acres and 1,150 miles of shoreline.
