What’s covered in grass, filled with funky ’80s-era freshness, and priced to sell?

It’s the week’s most popular home on Realtor.com®: an earth-sheltered time capsule in Wisconsin listed for just $250,000.

Curious clickers couldn’t get enough of the home with a sod roof, catapulting the underground home to the top spot. This home is a choice, but for a buyer with the right vision, it’s a warm and welcoming respite from the usual tract home.

There’s a rustic retreat in Maine with a sunken hot tub in the basement, an 8-acre property in Wyoming with a three-bedroom cabin, and a gorgeous mansion in Ohio once owned by the Rockefeller family.

1. 221 W. Pleasant St, Iron Ridge, WI

Price: $250,000
Why it’s here:
Would you consider a life underground? Judging from interest this week, the answer is yes. Plenty of curious people clicked on this earth-sheltered home in the Badger State.

Green, energy-efficient, and one-of-a-kind, this three-bedroom ranch home is covered in grass and dirt for natural insulation.

The 1984 residence doesn’t appear to have changed much over the decades, so it’s in need of new carpet, a refreshed kitchen, and other updates to bring it into the 21st century. Affordable and an interesting alternative to above-ground life, the 5-acre property is less than an hour to downtown Milwaukee.
