Cave

An incredible feat of engineering, this luxury cave dwelling is located 70 feet (6.5 meters) below the top of the cliff.

It is accessible via a carved stairway that takes you down the side of the 65 million-year-old rock formation.

It was blasted out in the 1980s to serve as a dwelling for a geologist, and it currently covers over 1,700 square feet (158 square meters) of luxury cave living.

Air holes, chimneys, and electricity supplies were drilled from the surface as the builders turned the cave into a truly unique dwelling.
