Are you looking for the perfect place to escape the day to day life, whilst also being safe from the threat of nuclear apocalypse? Well look no further than “The Facility” in Southeast Georgia.
An underground bunker and giant complex, it has recently come onto the market, for a mere $17.5 million (£11.6 million). Built in 1969, it was fully renovated to government standards in 2012, and can withstand a 20 kiloton nuclear blast… Not bad!
It features its very own power plant, with an 8KW solar backup system, and a $100,000 CCTV security system. Above the ground, The Facility offers you 2,000 square feet of commercial space and a recently renovated 1,000 square foot caretaker’s home.
Meanwhile, 45 feet underground, you are treated to 14,000 square feet of living and working space, set across two levels. Level one has been described as having common areas similar to a luxury hotel, whilst level two has four luxury apartments, which are all self-contained, with all the necessities you would expect.
Oh, and you will also find a conference centre, fully stocked medical room, home theatre and weapons room... Could you imagine a skirmish in this place?!
90 cm thick walls will keep the outside, outside, and the 91 m firing range can help you keep your eye in when practising with your air rifle. Originally built as an Army Corps communication centre, it is the only bunker of its kind in the United States. So if you’ve got a spare £12 million knocking about and fancy the ultimate safe haven, why not take a look for yourself?
