(Glenwood Springs, CO) Batman, are you interested in relocating from Gotham City to enjoy a quieter, slower-paced life near a Colorado resort known for its hot springs?

If so, a new property for sale near Glenwood Springs that’s the perfect fit for cave-loving superheroes or other adventurous types with pockets deeper than the cavernous dwelling itself.

The 25-acre Cave of Chimes property that hit the market this fall is located in the Glenwood Springs Canyon Walls and is listed for $2.45 million.

Amenities include thousands of square feet of cavernous hallways studded with stalactite and stalagmite formations and an elevator that plunges 120 feet below the Earth’s surface. (You can crawl through the cave virtually with a 3-D tour on Zillow).

“The way it’s built, it’s nothing short of the eighth wonder of the world,” Mike Henry, founder and director of Integrated Mountain Group, told The New York Post.

The cliffside property featured in the book “Caves of Colorado,” was purchased in the 1970s by a spelunking-loving couple from the East Coast.

Future owners of 217 Rose Bud Iron Mountain can turn the cave into a dream hideout.

“Build your dream home on this amazing property and own a piece of Colorado history!” says the listing that’s for sale by the Henry/Vannic Team at Integrated Mountain Group.

For the past four decades, a portion of the cave has been used as a personal dwelling by the owners who meticulously carved out the space.

The listing photos show all types of homey amenities like rocking chairs, a pool table, a bookshelf, and a glass block wall walk-in shower. It also has a balcony with views of the Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River.

However, the listing comes with a disclaimer: “The sellers make no claims regarding the habitability of the Cave of the Chimes.” We’re guessing the property inspection report would be a wild one!

So, would you live in a cave?
