Mansion with NUCLEAR BUNKERS on sale at £2.5million

Protective hideouts part of the deal on the five-bedroom home

House-hunters will certainly get plenty of bang for their buck with this £2.5 million mansion, which comes with two nuclear bomb shelters and a concrete bunker.

The precautionary measures were put in during the 1980s by a previous owner who was worried about Britain being bombed by the former USSR.

The preserved bunkers are 10ft underground -  one is only 12ft from the house and the other one 100ft away.

Aside from the nuclear hideouts, the five-bedroom detached Worcestershire property also comes with 9.5 acres of land and its own lake.

"All I know is that the bloke who we bought it off put them in during the 80s -  he put them in because he was a bit of a worrier," said current owner Graham Wainwright, who bought the house four years ago.

The bunkers were built around the time the iconic 80s TV drama 'Threads' was released, which showed what would happen if a nuclear bomb landed on Britain.

"Perhaps he took it too seriously and didn't want to take any chances," commented Graham. "They have the proper strong-arm doors and there's a toilet in them.. We've cleaned one out and it's an ideal wine cellar or boy's room."

The unique mansion is situated in the picturesque village of Drayton, near Belbroughton in Worcestershire.

The house and 1.7 acres of land are available for £2 million  - and there is the option to buy the other 7.8 acres of grounds and pools for an extra £500,000.
