Wouldn’t You Like to Live in a Decommissioned Missile Silo?

December 19th, 2011, byJeremy Freed

I know I would. And, just in time for the holidays as it happens, one has come up for sale. Are you listening, Santa?

The “Adirondack Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Silo Air Park” in Saranac, NY is an Atlas Missile site from the 1960s that has been converted into an elegant modern home. Beneath a rather inconspicuous Adirondack-style log home (and behind a pair of heavy steel blast doors) is a 52-foot-wide silo descending 176 feet below ground. While the silo itself is yet unfinished, the realtors note that a deck built within it would add an extra 2000 square feet to the property.

With 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and its own private runway, this could be the perfect spot to get away from the grind of city life or ride out the zombie apocalypse. And, at only $259,000, it’s a relative steal!
