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.
