THIS ordinary family home on the market comes with a secret that’s fitting for the tense times we live in.
Along with the stunning lake view, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and large garden, the £600,000 price tag also gets you a bunker.
The house is in the Mallacoota area of the state of Victoria, in Australia, and the bunker has already come in handy, when bushfires swept through the area.
Estate agent Kerri Warren of Mallacoota Real Estate explained that the owners added the bunker after totally re-building the property when they bought it in the late 80s.
The bunker comes with reception, a few old-out chairs, a radio, a peep hole and an air vent.
"The home is the same footprint but has been completely re-built,” she told Nine News.
“The owners then added all of the precautions for bushfires, which includes the bunker.”
