This underground bunker was built in 1969 as an Army Corps communications centre in case of a nuclear war with Russia. Now, it could be yours.


IF THERE was ever a place to hide-out during a zombie apocalypse, this is it.

An underground bunker, dubbed “The Facility”, in Tift County in the south of Georgia, has just gone on the market for a whopping $23.9 million.

According to the listing on Harry Norman Realtors, the 8-hectare, 13.7m underground bunker can withstand the deadliest of apocalypses, including a 20-kilton nuclear blast. It also includes decontamination showers, a spring system throughout the building to absorb “blast”, a first-aid nurses room and a 91m outdoor firearm range.

Then there’s the power plant, in addition to a solar backup system. The facility is also equipped with a $138,000 CCTV security system, just in case.

And zombies? They’ll have a lot of work to get through the 90cm thick walls standing in their way.

The underground facility was built in 1969 as an Army Corps communications centre in case of a nuclear war with Russia, but was “renovated to government standards in 2012”.

It is the only privately owned underground bunker of its kind in the United States.

While the world crumbles outside, guests can live it up in apocalyptic bliss in luxury apartments that can sleep 13, along with another five staff bedrooms. There’s also a home theatre that seats 15, along with exercise and recreation rooms.

The property’s listing managers a calling it “the ultimate safe haven” in an “increasingly dangerous world.”

“As the recent events in Paris and Mali have shown, we are living in an increasingly dangerous world,” Chris Salamone, co-owner of Bastion Holdings, said in a release.

“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 (13.7m) underground, impenetrable and undetectable.”
