    • A couple spent 30 years renovating a nuclear missile silo into an underground castle.
    • Now, the Kansas property is for sale for $3.2 million.
    • These photos show inside the stunning property.

    Kansas probably isn't where you'd first look if you're in the market for a castle, but you shouldn't miss this gem.
    Just 25 miles west of Topeka, this unique structure hides mostly underground. Ed and Dianna Peden bought this Cold War Atlas E nuclear missile silo and spent the last 33 years renovating it into an underground mansion and castle, which they rented out on Airbnb for years.

    Now, the Pedens are hoping to simplify and downsize, so they've enlisted friend and property manager Matthew Fulkerson to sell this unusual home. Fulkerson, who also got married on the property, has lived there and worked with the Pedens for the past 10 years.

    Owning this refurbished missile silo is a once in a lifetime opportunity, with a $3.2 million price for entry. These photos show the amazing renovation that took over three decades.
    The couple spent 33 years converting this Cold War-era nuclear missile silo into what they call a "subterra castle."

    The 18,000 square foot underground mansion is "turn-key," meaning it can be bought and moved into with no additional work.

    The Pedens say they've worked to make the space "cozy," no easy task for what is essentially a giant underground lair, but the property does have some homey charms.

    The 3,500 square foot great room even has a stage.

    ...great for doomsday preppers, white supremacists, neo-Nazis and NRA irregulars...
