While some have hopes to reside in typical colonials on a cul-de-sac, others look for more, well, alternative living arrangements. Take this Cold War missile silo home for sale in Lewis, New York. According to Realtor.com's listing, the 3,200-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom space is a converted 1960s bunker that once held an Atlas missile (it's now decommissioned, of course!), and it can be all yours for $750,000.
So, if the idea of kicking back in a control room excites you, or you're into quirky features like a wall of clocks displaying the world's time zones and switchboards with blinking lights and gauges, this may be the house for you. The retro furniture throughout, like the spinning Eames-inspired mission control chairs, is actually pretty cool. And while the exterior may be lacking, unless you think concrete and steel blast doors have curb appeal, eight acres of land in the foothills of the Adirondacks aren't too shabby.
If you're interested in taking a peek at these strange digs, you better be a serious shopper. In fact, KGW Portland reported that the realtor, Brian Dominic, is charging $375 just to see the place. "We'll get probably a 1,000 emails, probably 100 calls and that will lead to a handful of people that will actually visit the property,” he told the news source. So, get on it!
