Located in Southwest Georgia, a bunker was built in 1969 by the Army Corps of Engineers and fully renovated to government standards in 2012.

Construction cost $7 million back in 1969 and is now valued at between $5 and $50 million, depending on what an investor thinks it's worth.

This bunker is the only fully renovated hardened and privately owned underground bunker of it's kind in the United States, today.

Above ground, there is 2,000 square feet of commercial space and a renovated 1,000 square foot caretaker's home.

45-feet below ground is a 14,000 square foot bunker, with three foot thick walls, designed to withstand a 20 kiloton nuclear blast.

Water is supplied from a 300-foot deep well into the Georgia aquifer. A 1,000 gallon storage tank insures a constant water supply. Waste water and sewage is expelled from the underground facility via two systems.

Situated on 32 acres, this site offers protection against all types of potential threats and dangers, including all natural disasters, civil disturbances and terrorist attacks.

"As the recent events in Paris and Mali have shown, we are living in an increasingly dangerous world," says Chris Salamone, co-owner of Bastion Holdings. "This property offers the ultimate safe haven for any family, business or government that wants the ultimate in security and comfort. Renovations include amenities that rival any 5-star hotel, except it's located 45-fee underground, impenetrable and undetectable."

There are two levels of underground living space. Level two features four luxury apartments, each approximately 600 square feet in size. Each apartment is totally self-contained and offers two full bedrooms, a kitchen and dining area, a living room with TV and internet and a large bathroom. Each apartment has its own security and the air is controlled by a modern HVAC system and environmental monitoring sensors.

Level one of the bunker features common areas similar to a luxury hotel. Guests can enjoy the large home theater with seating for fifteen, a commercial grade kitchen, staff quarters, a recreation area, library and TV room. The facility is equipped with a full workshop, a separate business and conference center and a fully equipped medical room.

The renovations were overseen by Martin McDermott, co-owner and counter-terrorism security expert. "This facility is impenetrable, while meeting the highest standards for quality, comfort and security," said McDermott. As he states, "it is better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it."

The property has a commercial 3-Phase power plant, plus its own 8 Kw new solar backup system.

In addition to being one of the safest residential facilities in the world, there are various other potential uses for this unique site.

The building is presently used for training for the Department of Defense personnel in communications protocols. People stay on site for a specific period of time for their specialized training without distraction from the outside world.
