Prepper’s ESTATE with four houses and 20-person bunker hits the market for $6.5million


A sprawling country estate with four houses and a 20-person bunker built by a doomsday prepper ‘for maximum security in an uncertain world’ is on sale for $6.5million.

The 323-acre secluded property in Battle Creek, Michigan, featuring a stunning main house with yoga studio, gym and sauna, but it also offers its new owners their own 15,000sq ft camouflaged hideout protected by six inches of steel.

The bunker has its own shooting range, bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate 20 people, two kitchens and an interior grow room to feed a family during the apocalypse.

The shelter is solar powered and has an air purification system, meaning it can sustain itself with no need for its locked-down doom-mongers to venture outside.

Preppers have become increasingly common in the US in recent years, with survivalists preparing for natural disasters, political turmoil, nuclear war or pandemics, which has come into sharp focus in the past two years.

The property was built between 2013 and 2018 and the estate also offers three additional cottages, a state-of-the-art greenhouse, five lakes and mature timberland which has not been harvested for many years.
