For Sale: Repurposed, Recycled and Renovated Atlas Missile Base

Worried about a nuclear attack? Got $2.3 million? Here’s a “luxury home with its own private airport,” built on top of a 9-story underground missile silo, with the top 2 stories converted into a 3-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath underground living space. It’s in the Adirondack Mountains in N.Y. state. Here’s how the real estate agent describes the underground structure:

“The Silo has a climate constant/approx, 58 degree earth ambient temperature. It is 52′ diameter x 178′ deep / 9 floor steel superstructure. Entire steel superstructure hangs from gigantic spring suspension system designed to absorb shock of a direct nuclear hit.”

Just the thing for some wealthy Tea Party patriots awaiting the Rapture.

  1. What are their names?
    And on what streets do they live?
    I'd like to ride right over this afternoon and give them a piece of my mind about peace for mankind.
    Peace is not an awful lot to ask.
