Ever wondered what it would be like to live in a former Cold War era bunker?

Well you could now have a chance of finding out. 

An eco-friendly apartment built in the former Mistley Secret Bunker is now on the market.

Located in Shrublands Road, in Mistley, the property is currently listed at £325,000.

Originally built in 1951, the bunker was intended to serve as the communications hub of the country in the event of a nuclear attack.

The now townhouse is within close proximity to Manningtree Station and within walking distance to local schooling and the River Stour.

In fact, the property boasts three double bedrooms and a balcony/roof terrace leading off the first floor.

There is also an ensuite to master bedroom and separate bathroom suite, as well as a driveway and garage.

Designed as a safe haven for government officials in the event of a nuclear apocalypse, the property certainly has a rich, and controversial, past.

The Grade II listed property found in the quiet coastal village was intended to serve as the communications hub of the country should there be a nuclear attack.

Originally built in 1951, developers BuildVantage restored and converted the property into three plush duplex apartments.

Arranged over two floors, each home is enclosed by heavy blast doors made from military grade tank steel and protected by 600mm thick reinforced concrete walls.
