We live in a world today where technology has advanced so far that a nuclear threat is a reality for us all. While we haven’t found ways to combat surviving nuclear bombs on land, there have been designs for a bunker that would be able to withstand a 20 kiloton nuclear explosion!
For example, this one up for sale in Tifton, GA. It contains four apartments that each include a kitchen, a dining area, two bedrooms, a living room, and a bathroom. It’s set in 32 acres of land and the bunker contains more than 14,000ft of living space… more than enough space to protect a family!
The self-powered bunker sports three-foot-thick concrete walls, its own power plant with solar backup, decontamination showers, a secure air intake system, 12 “luxury apartments” and five staff bedrooms, according to a listing on Harry Norman Realtors.
There’s even a 15-seat movie theater, in case residents get bored during nuclear war and even a conference room so that business can continue despite all obstacles.
While it is a bit old (the house was built in 1969 during the height of the Cold War to protect from the persistent threat of an all-out nuclear exchange), it was renovated in 2012 to meet government standards, the listing notes.
For comparison, it reportedly could stand up well to the types of nuclear bombs detonated in Hiroshima and Nagasaki decades ago, but likely couldn’t survive the thousand-kiloton thermonuclear warheads stashed by the thousands in military stockpiles today. Although, if you have the money, it’s probably worth a shot to have this house anyway. It’s not like Georgia is a major target location!
Take a look at the layout and interior photos for yourself, below.

Fashion isn’t too important when it comes to extreme safety.
