This Underground WWII Bunker Is Now A Beautiful Home With Skylights
Lifestyle| | By Jason Owen
Several years ago, Elizabeth Strutton purchased a World War II era radar bunker in St. Levan, England. Obviously, an old military outpost would need some remodeling, but what Strutton designed will leave you amazed!
“It is a magical fortress,” Strutton told the Daily Mail. “You don’t know what you’re letting yourself in for when you take this kind of thing on, but I know I live in the best place in the world now.”
The “best place in the world” cost and estimated 100,000 Pounds (about $155,000 U.S.) and five years to complete, but it was well worth it.
Though her home is technically underground, there’s plenty of sunlight filtering in to the various rooms through “sun tubes” in the roof that let in natural light and also offer better ventilation.
And it should go without saying, but being in a place so close to history creates a magical setting.
“A man studying bunkers of that era came round and I learned a lot about my home that I never knew.”
“Living in here you do really appreciate the way people fought – you feel a sort of connection with what they were doing. It is something I don’t want to take for granted and one of the best things about the place.”
That’s one magical place to plant some roots. Would you guys live there?
