NY's Adirondack State Park - During the late 1950's and early 1960's when the Cold War was escalating, the U.S. government built hundreds of Atlas-F missile silos (each for 18 million in 1961, with the rising cost of construction today one could barely fund the excavation.) to prepare the country for an attack that never came. Today, most of these silos lie abandoned and filled with water, monuments to a bygone era of American historyand left to waste. But now, thanks to two entrepreneurial cousins, Bruce Francisco and Gregory Gibbons, one of these silos located in beautiful Adirondack State Park near Lake Placid is finding new life as a luxury home safe haven getaway complex accessible by plane or car. The real estate includes 20 acres of land with approximately 78 acres available as 10 approved building lots. The home is conveniently located to Montreal, Lake Placid and Plattsburgh and boast such outstanding year round activities as golfing, hunting, fishing, boating, hiking and world class skiing.
Surely it is the most unique real estate property you could own with the ultimate level of security and privacy. The silohome sits on 105 acres of manicured grounds, forest and trails. On the surface it features a hangar and spacious open living room with a fireplace and a wrap around porch. Below ground in what was once the launch control center, now is a two level, 3 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath with an open living area and kitchen adjoined by a spiral staircase. Star war like doors open to a large tunnel that accesses the silo.
maybe not just a unique home . . .
The silohome is a surface mountain home with an underground 20,000 sf vault one can habitat in with luxury. Francisco and Gibbons have restored the 2300 sf two level launch control center. Their complex is climate controlled using the earth temperature to moderate the surface and below ground environments. The same principals can be built into the large and expansive additional 20,000 sf silo area. So one can see the possibilities are unlimited.
The silohome is a restored rare 20th century collectable. As with any restored collectable the value increases with time. Perhaps one day, the value will be priceless!
