Giant nuclear bunker hits the property market for $1.75 Million (£11.57M)
A one-of-a-kind luxury property has hit the market targeted at those fearful of a NUCLEAR BLAST.
The giant underground bunker comes with a whopping $17.5 MILLION (£11.57M) price tag and is able to withstand a 20 kiloton nuclear explosion.
According to the listing, the facility can survive all kinds of potential threats – including natural disasters, civil disturbances and terrorist attacks.
Located near Savannah in Georgia, USA, the unique property was built in 1969 by the army corps and engineers.
In 2012, the bunker was fully renovated, bringing it up to government standards and, according ot the listing, making it the only privately owned underground bunker of its kind in the United States.
Some of the protection features include 3ft-thick walls, air intake systems, a nurse’s room, decontamination showers and a $100,000 CCTV system.
Other, more everyday features hot water, solar panels and humidity controls.
The facility is situated on 32 acres of land and has two levels of underground living space, which total around 14,000 square feet.
Within this underground space, the second level features four luxury apartments – each approximately 600 square feet in size – with each containing a kitchen, dining area, two bedrooms, a living room and bathroom.
Level one features communal areas – like those found in a hotel – as well as a separate quarters staff, should the buyer wish to employ.
As well as being targeted at anyone who might want to use the bunker as a home, the property is also being advertised as a potential corporate retreat, to secure gold or other valuables, as a training facility – or just the ultimate man cave.
Chris Salamone, co-owner of Bastion Holdings, a training company for government and security personnel, said: “We are living in an increasingly dangerous world.
“This property offers the ultimate safe haven for any family, business or government that wants the ultimate in security and comfort.
“Renovations include amenities that rival any 5-star hotel, except located 45 feet underground, impenetrable and undetectable.”
Martin McDermott, CEO of Bastion Holdings and a counter-terrorism, surveillance and communications expert, added: “This Facility is impenetrable, while meeting the highest standards for quality, comfort and security.
“It is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.”
