Decades after the end of World War II, some families in England are still using the bunkers created during that era to help protect civilians from bomb blasts. This bunker in particular was built on the former RAF base at Caversfield in England. It was originally built to withstand bombings and chemical attacks. It even came with decontamination showers, air lock doors and a war room. This building is still being used today, although it’d be hard for anyone to guess exactly what.
The bunker was built with bare walls and a muddy floor…
Today, it is unrecognizable.
It was split down the middle and converted into two 1,400 sq ft two bedroom homes.
They are being sold for nearly $750,000 each.
The space has been transformed from being 100% functionary buildings into modern homes.
The task, completed by City and Country developers, was not an easy one.
It used to be windowless and gloomy, but now these bunkers are quite beautiful.
(H/T Daily Mail) The developers of the home say that, “It was probably one of the most challenging buildings we have ever tackled and was particularly unusual, because it didn’t have any windows.” Demolishing history throughout the country, such as these bunkers, would be a tragedy. It’s cool to see a nation’s history preserved in such a unique way. Share this awesome luxury home with others, no one will ever be able to guess what it started out as.
