A Battle Creek $ 6.5 Million Home Ukraine, equipped with an underground bunker, is drawing attention from around the world as it shows warning signs of the potential impact of Russia’s attack on the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.
Completed on 323 acres of 22072 Pine Lake Road in 2018, the 14,000-square-foot home comes with a Texas-based Rising S Co. 5,000-square-foot bunker. Underneath the 6-inch steel is the largest and largest bedroom and bathroom. 20 people, 2 kitchens, cultivation room, shooting range.
“It’s everywhere in China, Australia, and the UK,” said Rian Johnson, a listed real estate agent for Michigan Lifestyle Properties, who originated the inquiries he received. “We are getting more attention from people close to Ukraine. Someone is coming from California. For those traveling from Detroit and Chicago, it’s a convenient, private, rural place.”
Gary Lynch, general manager of RisingS, told The Detroit News that the bunker in the house offers complete nuclear protection with an air purification system, solar panels and blast valves.
Rising S has sold 35 bunkers since Russia launched its attack on Ukraine on February 24th. This is about the same number that the company may sell in a normal year. According to Lynch, it usually ranges from $ 70,000 to $ 120,000, but some recent buyers are buying twice as much. A bunker in Battle Creek’s house costs about $ 2.5 million.
“We have a world superpower that threatens nuclear capabilities and bends his nuclear muscles,” Lynch said. “I encourage people to prepare.”
Ukrainian National Emergency Services Agency claimed on Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered preparations for a terrorist attack on the nuclear power plant, the site of the 1986 explosion and collapse. CBS News reported.. Authorities warned that radioactive clouds could form over Europe if power to the plant’s cooling system was cut off.
“When I listed this a year ago, it wasn’t what most people thought it was necessary, but I don’t know what Putin will do,” Johnson said. “It’s appealing to anyone looking for safety and protection, etc.”
Johnson refused to reveal the seller’s name, but public property records list the owner as TIA Corp. According to a filing with state regulators, the company’s president is Per Wickstrom. Wickstrom is the CEO of the Pharmacotherapy Center According to his LinkedIn profile..
The three-storey house has five bedrooms, six full baths and three half baths, and a garage of four cars. According to Johnson, he rarely lives. It is on a privately owned stored lake. There is a greenhouse and a video surveillance security system on site. There are 3 additional homes as part of the complex with access to 4 additional lakes.
Johnson said he requested more information from Rising S about the bunker. Accommodation cannot be completely off-the-grid, but there is ample space for a solar farm.
“You got such a property, and it’s as remote as you can find in southwestern Michigan. It’s a luxury property, so how about it?” Johnson said. He talked about the origin of the bunker. “There are people out there who are prepared about what’s happening in the economy and COVID, nervous and motivated to do that.”
