bfv mentioned the phrase a couple days ago, so I thought I'd riff. Especially as someone who really wanted a missile silo until I, too, discovered that missile silos - at least the ones that weren't dug up and repurposed - tended to be built in places you'd never want to live.
But fear not: actual supervillain real estate can be had, and it doesn't suck. It's not cheap, though.
First up, the Elrod House, from Diamonds are Forever:
If that's a little rich for your blood, there's always the Volcano house in Joshua Tree, which just sold for a mere $650,000.
For true supervillain cachet, though, it's tough to beat the Ennis House by Frank Lloyd Wright:
...other than the $6m or so worth of restoration it needs. However, the company you're in includes -
- Blade Runner
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer
- Black Rain
- The Glimmer Man
- Twin Peaks
- The Rocketeer
- South Park (fer real)
and I've run out of time but I'm pretty sure there's more. Feel free to add your own.
