EQUESTRIAN ESTATE

Want to see a secret buried down in the basement of this Equestrian Estate in Arizona? Here’s your ticket to ride because the basement is made out of vintage railroad cars, believe it or not.

Right now, the railroad cars are set up for entertainment. The listing says the basement space is the perfect place for “preppers.”

What’s a Prepper Sue? Preppers are survivalist who stock up for emergencies and build underground shelters just in case the world goes mad.

Equestrian Estate in Cave Creek, Maricopa County, Arizona has a basement made out of vintage railroad cars!

THE EQUESTRIAN ESTATE SITS ON ALMOST 5 ACRES IN CAVE CREEK, MARICOPA COUNTY, ARIZONA.

The house has “western charm with contemporary flair. Room for 25 horses with covered stalls, arenas, tack sheds” and more. It used to be a B&B so the “kitchen is commercial grade with hickory cabinets.”

THE MASTER BEDROOM OVERLOOKS THE POOL.

Unbelievable basement in this house is Arizona is made from buried railroad carsI just was not grasping the concept until I saw this photo. There really are old railroad cars buried in this basement. I wonder how many make up the basement. I tried counting and came up with 4, plus there’s a small bathroom that I didn’t share. Take a gander at the old wood plank flooring.

  1. I’m pretty sure the zombie uprising is already happening. Just take a look at the GOP candidates.

    (Sorry, couldn’t resist)

    Oh, and this time I had few issues 😉

  2. You read my mind when you said “if these walls could talk.” I was thinking the same thing. Thank you Heather as often reader’s say the things I leave out.

  3. That is so very unique! I love the feel of it all … Just brings to mind an old saying, If these walls could talk I wonder the stories they would tell. So very interesting. Thanks for sharing this gem Sue!

  4. That is the most excellent comment Candy. Of course, the boys love the railroad cars. Stockpile provisions to last for years to ride out the Zombie attacks is genius.

  5. Great home! It is the perfect place to stockpile provisions to last for years and to hole up in to ride out the Zombie Uprising!

    Actually I do think it is pretty cool. The novelty of the railroad car basement is fabulous. I could see where the guys would think this would be the perfect place for a man cave.

  6. Wow Sue, that’s really unique! I know a lot of folks are into prepping these days. My son is into it too …just not as bad as most lol. The house is stunning and the grounds are a dream. Very cool find!
