Nuclear bunker with dull exterior hides luxurious secret apartments

Real Estate

A nuclear bunker covered in reinforced concrete looks ugly from the outside – but feet below the surface hides an incredible secret.

Three luxury apartments nestled beneath the Grade II listed nuclear bunker in Mistley, Essex, England are going up for auction later this month – with a guide price of $1,912,757.

The bunker was built in 1951 – during the Cold War – to be used as a communications hub in the event of an attack.

It was kitted out with military grade tank steel and 23.6 inches reinforced concrete walls to protect government officials – but it was never used.

Now, the three apartments inside the old bunker – one four-bed and two three-beds – are up for grabs.

Developers BuildVantage have created the homes over two floors, centered around a beautiful light-filled atrium.

All three still have the original reinforced doors and walls, and one of the properties also features an original ventilation system housed behind a glass wall.
