Missile silo designed to withstand nuclear strike on sale for $380K – New York Post

It’s move-in ready — and nuclear-attack ready.

A missile silo in Abilene, Kansas, used to store and launch ballistic missiles in the 1960s, is on sale for $380,000.

Built on 11 acres of land, the silo was specifically home to the decommissioned Atlas F missile, which were deployed from 1961 to 1966. After retirement, the ballistic missiles were refurbished and used for more than 30 years as space launch vehicles.

The underground complex was designed to withstand a nuclear strike and has water, electricity and a sewage system, the listing notes.

There is 6,900 square feet of living space, and the upper two levels of the silo consists of 1,200 square feet of space.

The upper levels were used for the launch control center and living quarters for the crew. The main missile silo is located at a depth of 170 feet, the listing states.

Images show a nondescript entrance to the silo, with an intricate underground structure.

The property was featured on the Instagram account ZillowGoneWild, where some users noticed a similarity to the Soviet missile silo in the 1995 James Bond movie, “GoldenEye.”

“Almost 7 thousand square feet and there’s only one bathroom?!” Another user questioned.

“The entire place is a top secret potato shed,” another quipped.

There is 6, 900 square feet in the complex with the upper two levels consisting of approximately 1, 200 feet of space.
