Today, our houses are never short of amazing features and with security more important to homeowners than ever, it's no wonder that private survival shelters are now top of our property wish lists.

Click or scroll on to step inside…
You don't have to be a millionaire to afford a house with a safe room. This affordable three-bedroom family home in French Village, Missouri sits on two lots in a 400-acre gated community close to the edge of Goose Creek Lake. The garden boasts mature apple and peach trees, but that's not all…
Built in 1984, the house is well-maintained and even comes with most of the furnishings and appliances you need to move straight in. With three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a free-standing carport and lots of storage place, it would make a great holiday home. The garden is ringed by a chain-link fence to keep your dogs in and intruders out. 
The hidden gem in this property is most definitely the secret bunker concealed in the garden. An accessible ramp leads down to a single door, which opens into a concrete room with lots of potential.
The 122-square-foot room would make the perfect bunker or safe house. You could even use it for storage – but in Missouri, which is prone to violent storm systems and deadly tornados, we think a storm shelter would be a safer bet. Interested? It could be yours via Triple Creek Realty for just $99,900 (£77.9k).
When looking at this charming family home from the outside, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was pretty ordinary – but you'd be wrong! Located in Ortonville, Michigan, the residence was built in 1998, but it's definitely fit for a dystopian future… 
Spanning 2,404 square feet, the property has a bright and spacious interior. There's an open-concept living room with a double-height ceiling, a kitchen and a dining zone, while upstairs you'll find four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Design-wise, the place could use an update, but it has plenty of potential thanks to its glossy timber floors, knotty pine ceilings and huge arched windows. 
The property even has a substantial basement, which is the size of a New York City loft. Although pretty bare and in need of finishing, the space is ready and waiting to be put to use. Plus, it comes with a hidden and very enticing extra…
That's right, it's your own private bunker! Sadly, we don't know how big the space is, but from the pictures, it looks like it could accommodate a large crowd. It already has plumbing and electrics installed, too. Plus, the house is nestled on more than two acres and boasts two stocked ponds, a septic system, a whole house generator, and a reverse osmosis and tankless water heater, so you could create an off-grid retreat that's ready for the apocalypse. 
If you'd rather buy in rural Arizona, then this compound in Show Low is up for grabs via West USA Realty for $589,000 (£459.5k). Positioned on almost two acres of land, the custom-built home was finished in 2016 and clearly, the owner thought of everything during its design…
Inside, you’ll find 2,534 square feet of living space, complete with an open floorplan. There’s a great room, equipped with a lounge, kitchen and dining zone, while barn doors connect the room to a separate space that could be used as a games room, office or an additional bedroom – there are currently four.
However, whoever buys the property will need to bear in mind that this extra room comes with a hole in the floor that leads to a hidden bunker! Currently, the door is a wooden block, but the new owner could switch this out for something more stable and secure.
Perfect as a panic room or clandestine hideout, the space is nestled below the ground and features corrugated metal walls and just enough space for a bunk bed and washroom facilities. Currently utilised for storing essentials, this would be the ultimate safe space to protect you from intruders.
Have you ever fancied buying a rural homestead in Texas, USA? If so, then this property could be your dream retreat. As well as boasting more than an acre of land in the city of Midland, the house also has 3,129 square feet of interior space and a few hidden surprises…
Yours for just $639,900 (£499.2k), the residence was built in 1983 and is showing signs of age. In need of a total overhaul, the home is a bit of a blank canvas that's waiting to be brought to life. Inside, there's a huge living room, a kitchen, a dining room, a sunroom, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms.
Yet the ranch's best asset has to be its private, underground bunker. Described by the listing agents, Sims & Guess Realtors, as a "hidden storm bunker", the space can be accessed via the utility room and features a rather eerie metal tunnel that leads inside.
We don't know the exact dimensions of the awesome bunker, but looking at it, it's more than big enough for a few bunk beds, a kitchen, bathroom facilities and a living room. With its metal barrel ceilings, solid concrete block walls and working electrics, you'd be safe and sound hiding out down here.
If you have the best part of a million dollars to spare, you might be interested in this newly transformed family compound in Merton, Wisconsin. Not only does it contain a spacious three-bedroom farmhouse, but it also boasts a heated garage, barn, granary and even a milkhouse to add to the charm.
Although built back in 1872, the previous owners have poured $50,000 (£39k) into the property since 2022 – and it shows! An enormous great room opens into this newly-fitted kitchen, complete with new granite countertops and a woodburning stove for keeping cosy in the winter. plus, there's even more waiting underground…
Below ground, there's a large partly-finished cellar providing plenty of storage space for a family. But with all the outbuildings to store your belongings in, the cellar could be the perfect place for a gym or rec room, or even to shelter in for a while. 
Additionally, there's a small bunker with a tiled floor, electrical supply and built-in shelving to store long-life food, medical supplies and whatever else you might need to ride out a storm – literal or metaphorical!
Those with a bigger budget could get their hands on this sprawling, off-grid estate in Savannah, Tennessee. Available through Compass for $1.4 million (£1.1m), the self-sustaining home sits on 68 acres and comes equipped with everything you could need to see out a nuclear disaster or a zombie attack.
The estate comes with a main house, which was constructed in 2010. The 2,825-square-foot, custom-built home has an open-plan living room, dining zone, kitchen, home office, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are high-end details throughout, too, including Sub-Zero & Wolf appliances and granite countertops in the kitchen, as well as scraped pecan hardwood and travertine flooring.
Yet the home’s main selling point has to be its off-grid, engineered concrete bunker. Hidden away, only the new owner will know where the secure retreat is. It comes with potable (drinking) water, full off-grid power and communications systems for if you need to make an emergency call.
The space has bed zones, marked off with curtains, as well as large rooms that could be turned into underground living spaces and bathrooms. There's also a huge storage space that's filled to the brim with essentials, to keep any occupant going for years. The estate also has an on-site stream for all your water needs.
If you have a larger budget, then this impressive compound in Battle Creek, Michigan, might be within your reach. The estate benefits from a 323-acre garden and an almost 14,000-square-foot custom-built mansion that overlooks the tranquil waters of a fully stocked, nine-acre lake. 
Listed with Five Star Real Estate for a cool $4.9 million (£3.8m), the house was built in 2018 and offers chic living spaces, five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a gym, a movie theatre, a yoga room and a spa. Elsewhere, there's a large vegetable garden and a state-of-the-art greenhouse, both built for self-sustainability, as well as a video surveillance security system and three additional homes that could be utilised for your family and friends.
Yet the estate's main selling point is its 5,000-square-foot secure bunker. The entrance to the subterranean space can be seen here, camouflaged among the foliage. The sprawling retreat has been kitted out with everything you could need to survive the end of the world. 
There's a kitchen, numerous bathrooms and bedrooms, and even an underground garden with indoor growing equipment, where you could grow your own produce. The bunker also boasts a unique, soundproof room that could come in handy if you need to lay low. Other plus points include the estate's 7,200-square-foot outbuilding, which could be converted into an additional home, allowing the new owner to create a self-sufficient bolthole.
This otherwise ordinary family home has been turned into a doomsday sanctuary. The modern mansion is located in Richmond, Kentucky, and can be found secluded on 200 acres of land. It's also just 15 minutes from Lexington, the Horse Capital of the World, making this pad ideal for equestrian fans, too.
The home was completed in 2014 and spans 14,300 square feet. Designed to meet the needs of a family, it features sprawling and light-filled living spaces, including a huge open-plan lounge, three kitchens and a grand dining room that's perfect for entertaining. Elsewhere, there are nine bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and a luxurious basement with a garage and a fitness centre.
Built like a fortress, the zombie-proof property also boasts its very own nuclear fallout shelter. As one of the best private underground bunkers we've ever seen, the space is said to have cost $3 million (£2.4m) to build and it’s really no surprise. Located 26 feet below ground, it comes equipped with heavy-duty blast doors, a 39-inch solid concrete ceiling and walls that are 15 inches thick. 
Powered by natural gas wells, the secure shelter features 21,000-gallon underground propane tanks, an 8,000-gallon pressurised water tank, three generators and geothermal heat and air. It was built to withstand earthquakes and has three air filtration systems and two escape tunnels. If you want to get your hands on the place, then it's currently for sale with Hoffman International Properties for $6.5 million (£5.1m).
