If you’ve ever wanted to live in a home with an underground tunnel, you’re in luck: Two sprawling residences connected by a subterranean passageway in Carthage, Missouri, are now on the market for a combined $3.1 million.
Together, the properties boast eight bedrooms and 11 bathrooms across nearly 13 acres. The original home on the lot, which is known as the Carter House—named for its original owner, Dr. John Carter, a Civil War veteran—was built between 1893 and 1896. After renting the abode in 1963, businesswoman Ruth I. Kolpin Rubison purchased and restored it. She lived there until her death at the age of 96 in 2019, and her family has owned both dwellings ever since.
Rubison built the second abode—a carriage house that’s a bit larger than the original building, with an elevator that has access to all three floors—to ensure that she would have a more accessible home on the property.
Both homes feature ornate woodwork and chandeliers, Carthage marble, and stained-glass windows galore. (Look familiar? You might’ve seen it on the Instagram account Zillow Gone Wild.)
