A converted underground bunker has been listed for sale in the US state of Georgia. The concrete bunker was built in 1969 at the height of the cold war. It was built to withstand a 20-kiloton nuclear blast. It isn’t clear what the original use was, however, it now appears to have been converted into a unique $17.5 million subterranean mansion!
The walls measure 3-ft thick, are constructed from 4000-6000PSI hardened concrete and feature a spring system throughout to absorb blasts. It features decontamination showers, a brand new secure air intake systems, six HVAC underground systems, a first-aid nurses room and a 100 yard outdoor firearm range.
The first storey of the bunker houses the living quarters with the bedrooms located on the second floor. The house consists of 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms arranged in individual apartments. There is a theatre and games room as well as the normal mod cons, kitchen, workshop and parking.
The Tipton-based bunker is said to be the only privately owned residential property of its kind in the US. We certainly haven’t seen anything like this hit the market before. The renovation works were apparently carried out in 2012 and the whole house is now EPA compliant!
