ATLANTA, GA (WALB) - An actual secret bunker in South Georgia is now on the market. If you're willing to pay the hefty price for it, it could be yours.
Bastion Holdings is selling a bunker built by the Army Corp. of Engineers during the Cold War in 1969. Due to safety concerns, the location can't even be disclosed.
The bunker is modeled almost like a home for the stars.
"Justin Bieber would probably be the perfect purchaser for this right," said Chris Salamone "Where he can come and bring his friends and not have any one know they're here."
It also has a unique door and is fully equipped with a decontamination chamber. Unfortunately, the owners had to put it up for sale.
"If it wasn't for health conditions of our partner this place would never be for sale," said Bruce Kitchens.
The CEO of the company used the space as a training facility. It's also 45 feet below ground and designed to withstand a 20 kiloton nuclear blast. Not only that, but the facility offers protection against potential threats and dangers including natural disasters, civil disturbance, and terrorist attacks.
"He bought this as a place to do training for military and government personnel," said Salamone.
That was all the reason why in 2012, the place went through a five star hotel upgrade.
"We built rec rooms for them. There is a home theater," said Kitchens.
"There is nothing this place doesn't have."
Above ground and situated on 32 acres, the facility offers 2,000 square feet of commercial space with a newly renovated 1,000 square foot caretaker's home. Below ground, the bunker offers 14,000 square feet of living and working space.
Level one of the bunker features common area similar to a luxury hotel. There is a large home theater with seating for 15, commercial grade kitchen, staff quarters, recreation area, library, and TV room are all available. It is also equipped with a full workshop, business and conference center, and fully equipped medical room.
The second level features four luxury apartments, each approximately 600 square feet in size. Each apartment is completely self-contained and offers two full bedrooms, a kitchen and dining area, a living room with TV and Internet, and a large bathroom. Each suite has its own security, with a modern HVAC system and environmental monitoring sensors.
The property also has a commercial Three-Phase power plant, along with an new 8 kilowatt backup system. A $100,000 CCTV security system, similar to a high street bank is also included.
Other potential uses for the facility includes corporate threats, secure storage for gold and other valuables, a sporting club, training facility, detox/treatment center, and even the ultimate man-cave.
The owners are not just looking for any type of people to buy the place. They are looking for the ones who will enjoy it just like them and appreciate the history.
Originally it cost around $7,000,000 to build the bunker. Now it has a nice price tag of $17.5,000,000.
