A family home on the market for $297,00 comes with massive underground hidden cave just off the living room.

The property in Marietta, Pennsylvania, has a living room with a wooden door which connects the spooky rocky cave to the rest of the house.

According to the seller, the cavern already existed when they purchased the property which was built in the 1900s.

At 40ft long, it's believed it was once part of the town's underground railroad, or was built as a bomb shelter.

The 2,178sqft home has two additional floors.

According to Century 21 listing agent, Natalia Latsios, the seller rebuilt much of the three-bedroom and two-bathroom home with his late wife.

Throughout the house there is a mix of eclectic and modern styles, and visitors enter the house through the kitchen.

In Marietta, properties can range from new town homes that start at $150,000 to larger, historical homes that sell for upward of $500,000.

Natalia said the home's unusual nature made it challenging to price, but they eventually settled for something in the middle.

It is already attracting lots of interest from potential buyers and is not expected to be on the market for much longer, she said.
