How often does it so happen that your childhood fantasy of finding a secret treasure somewhere around your house or maybe around a deserted island comes true? Well, it did for these people. They found these right where they lived. These people have discovered some reaaaally cool items hidden away in their homes - from money worth a million dollars to love letters that must've been priceless for the possessors. Try resisting your urge to rip down your walls after reading this!
So the person residing in this house found out about this basement after having lived there for 2 years. A basement full of food, chemistry equipment and sexual education information about incest and rape. Creepiest part? The former owner used to call this space - Palace. *Shudders*
What a man found behind the walls of his home were definitely priceless to its owner! These letters were addressed from a WWI soldier. He found them during renovation and gave them to the family of the couple to whom these letters belonged.
A couple found a 50 years old safe in the walls of their home which consisted of a vintage bottle of bourbon, the book "A guide for Perplexed" and $51,000 in cash. Talk about dreams!
Two weeks into moving in, this guys finds a secret cubby in his basement covered with plywood. The previous owner had packed this entire four feet by four feet room a shit load of scary crap - gun cases, grenades and ammunition.
A man had taken over a house from his grandmother and found a secret safe in the closet, sitting inside it were boxes and boxes of coins, jewellery and bars of silver! Quite a collection.
So this family decided to renovate their house, chipped away the plaster on the fall and VOILA! found this Mayan mural there.
A couple decided to check out what was beneath a metal grate in their front hallway and what did they find? An ancient chapel that researchers believe is 230 years.
A guy found an old briefcase full of video tapes, money, silver and a letter saying - Save yourself!
Yeah. There was an entire set up kitchen in this person's basement that is presumed to not have been touched in 60 years but thought to be dated back to the 1830s.
After 1928, this painting was the first piece of Van Gogh art found. Apparently a Norwegian artist discovered this in 1908 but it was then dismissed as fake and ended up in his attic. But whoops, it's actually real.
Not sure what it is with safes but yet another man found a secret safe in his home. It took a lot of effort to open it. The man also undertook all pains to open it. Only to find out that it was empty. Completely! Looking at the bright side, the guy said - "Well, at least, I now have a super cool safe!"
