Colin Furze’s underground bunker, which he recently completed, is pretty sweet. It has a well-stocked kitchen, not-so-private bathroom, bed, generator, flat-screen TV, drums … pretty much everything you need to survive a disaster, or just to enjoy as a cool place to hang out in with your friends. But his homemade bunker has nothing on 123 Private Drive in Tifton, Georgia.
The 12-bedroom, 12-bathroom underground structure at that address was built in 1969; its owners updated it to meet government standards in 2012. The bunker can apparently withstand a 20-kiloton nuclear blast. But that doesn’t mean you can’t wait for the end of the world in style; the first floor has a common area “similar to a luxury hotel.” I would definitely read a book titled after its nickname, “The Facility.”
It might be better described as an underground (45 feet down) compound, as it has four luxury apartments, five staff bedrooms, a 15-seat home theater, conference rooms, a first-aid room, and a commercial kitchen. Above ground, there’s a 100-yard firearm range, so you can practice for the zombies. To keep the lights on, it has a three-phase power plant and backup solar system. “Above ground, The Facility offers 2,000 square feet of commercial space, a renovated 1,000-square-foot caretaker’s home, and below ground the facility offers 14,000-square-feet of living and working space,” according to a press release.
The Harry Norman Realtors is listing “the only hardened and privately owned underground bunker in the United States today” for $17.5 million. That’s a lot of moolah. “The type of buyer would [be] someone who is of substantial wealth and [likes] privacy, or [is] with the government,” real estate company’s public relations manager, Jeanne Shannon, told The Blaze.
Or maybe Overstock’s CEO is in the market? He doesn’t have quite enough in gold and silver to buy it outright, though.
