sECRET BUNKER, MISTLEY.
Mistley, England’s old nuclear bunker, was created in 1951 to defend citizens from a third world war. It was converted into a museum when the Cold War ended, but once the museum closed in 2002, it became dilapidated and underused. Buildvantage refurbished and converted the property into two stories of magnificent modern homes. Each residence boasts massive blast doors constructed of military-grade tank steel and 600-mm-thick reinforced concrete walls, and one of the three properties still maintains the original ventilation system contained behind a glass wall. Each apartment also has its own off-street parking space and garden.
