Located in the heart of Kansas and built on 11 acres of land, the hidden concrete structure was designed to withstand a nuclear attack, according to the real estate website. Zillow.

It has everything a modern family needs to survive the apocalypse including running water, electricity and a mandatory sewage drainage system to the surface.

It even has two upper floors that measure 1,200 feet and are only accessible through a quaint entrance above ground level.

The former launch site was home to the Atlas F missile silo complex, which housed Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBMs) from 1961 to 1966.

When operational, the bunker was manned by a crew of five and had an underground tunnel connecting it to the launch control room 170 feet underground.

These sites were later used in the US space program and helped put the first four American astronauts into Earth orbit in the early 1960s.

Hirsch Real Estate is trying to promote the property, which it describes as a “one-room office or storage building”.

“This establishment has a lot of potential either way you choose to go,” the online ad reads.

“A house, apartment or a Bed and Breakfast are just some of the ideas.

“If you want something that offers security and uniqueness, then this property is for you.”

The Atlas F series missile silo complexes were the last of the ICBM bases built and cost £11 million each in the 1960s, according to the report. atlasmissilesilo.com.

According to the website, there are already 72 Atlas F launch sites across the US – with 12 of them in Kansas.

This bunker is located in Abilene and is Schilling’s AFB site.
