“My Friend Found A Listing For An Otherwise Normal McMansion That Seemingly Has A Little Fake Town In The Basement”

If you’ve ever stumbled across the listing of a McMansion, you’ll know that not judging a book by its cover doesn’t apply here. Because these pretentious playgrounds, aka properties for the rich and richest, are all about being over the top. And loving it.


But it turns out, some McMansions are more extra than others, even if that beats the term in itself. You see, someone on the internet found a listing of “an otherwise normal McMansion,” which has all you’d expect—tennis court, heated pool, and countless rooms. But apparently, all the fun is in the basement. The 12089 sq ft property in the Potomac, Washington area has a life-sized retro village built in underneath. Cobblestone streets, 15 authentic store facades, real working parked cars ready to take you on the ride of a lifetime… do you want me to continue? Oh, and for those who love a cinema date now and then, a double feature of Mary Poppins and the Exorcist is on the menu. You get the vibes.
