This Bunker Is More Like An Underground Mansion, Worth $17.5 Million

5618835_1Back in the 50s and 60s, many Americans lived in constant fear of nuclear attack. If you’ve ever seen the Brendan Fraser movie Blast from the Past, you know exactly what I’m talking about. The threat of nuclear war forced many to make contingency plans, and if you’re now planning for the zombie apocalypse, then this “bunker” may be for you.

In Tift County, Georgia, there exists a two-level underground bunker mansion with 12 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, a exercise room, a movie theater, recreation room, and classroom. It also features three-foot think walls, decontamination showers, and a recently-updated air intake system. It’s also bigger and more gorgeous than your house.

Sitting on 20+ acres, the bunker, which was built in 1969 at the height of Cold War tensions between the Soviet Union and the United States, is made to withstand a 20-kiloton nuclear blast. The listing on Harry Norman Realtors has set the price of this fancy bunker at $17.5 million, making it the perfect escape from zombies, atomic bombs, and maybe even your debt collector.

It really is a beautiful home for the very rich and the very paranoid among us. Take a look:
