What Abdul said.:clap:
... The stars were suns, but so far away they were just little points of light ... The scale of the universe suddenly opened up to me. It was a kind of religious experience. There was a magnificence to it, a grandeur, a scale which has never left me. Never ever left me.

Missile not included.
I was totally going to ask!

But that would indeed be a cool home, in case of apocalypse. Only slight downside I can see is that it might be a direct target for an ICBM, and being underground might not help in that case.

A more plausible apocalypse is the one where most folks just plain get tired of being civilized and stop. :)

Doesn't look like much, but there are other buildings in the same style on the property, and best of all it has a great history.

(Got a bit carried away, there. :oops: )

Technical details:

480 m2 (5170 square feet for ed); 12 rooms, 4 bedrooms; double parking box; no opposite building; patio; structurally sound; fitted kitchen; 500 m2 plot; central heating; fireplace.

Now I ask you Muricans: price?
