This Mansion’s Tennis Court Hides a Batcave

This is some random food for your mind. Personal opinion this is awesome



Under the residence’s 2,500 square-meter property, architects from Australian firm Molecule, have constructed a garage modeled after the one featured in “The Dark Knight.”




Just wait, it gets better.



“In a very well-mannered heritage house… we were asked to reintroduce some of the glamour,” said Haberfield.

What could be more glamorous than a home fit for a superhero?

The garage is buried about 20 feet underground. It sits next to an almost-as-impressive 12-seat underground private movie theater.

How do you get in, you might wonder? Cars access the garage when part of the tennis court is hydraulically lifted, of course.

“It takes a minute to lift the tennis court,” Haberfield tells Domain, “and a minute to close it down."






Once inside, the owner gains access to the residence via a staircase that feeds directly into the home, in true Batcave fashion.


Talk about some technical construction. Kind of. Really cool though!

I would say less Bruce Wayne and more like Tony Stark.

Look how reflective that garage floor is. My own floors couldn't reflect like that.

My assistant is reading a book about this very subject. How the Uber Elite have underground mansions, rail transportation, tennis courts, etc. All so they don't need to walk among us.

Whenever I think of this attitude, I recall what my mother used to say "Even the Queen of England flushes". I'm not so sure that SHE does, but there is a visual that lowers her social status equal to the rest of us, if only for a fleeting moment.

Lots of life underground.

They call them iceberg homes. The "mansion" above ground is just the "tip of the iceberg".

Yeah it's pretty cool. Have you ever seen the house in the country that looks like a house but the whole front of the house retracts open and is one giant garage? That one is pretty cool.
