Marin Headlands POS

The realtor write-up says it all:
This is a must see!!! First time on the market. This wonderful starter home is located in the prestigious Marin Headlands. Sturdy construction (in places 5' thick concrete walls, 3" thick metal doors), fabulous views, good bones -- lower levels can withstand high altitude, high yield saturation bombing and tunneling ensures safe evacuation for your family in case of emergency. Needs a little TLC so be sure to bring your contractor. Excellent starter home for a young family. Don't pass this one up. Price is only $1,999,000.

This is a joke. Happy 4th of July!

"...And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our real estate was still there..."

I'd call that a bust-proof Marin bubble bunker. Nicely timed, happy 4th!

And the first photo, at least, is not even in Marin but instead in the Presidio of San Francisco!

Though many similar installations are spread throughout the Headlands, of course.

Well, Battery Alexander is very similar. I'll take a few pics today when I'm out. Those places have good bones, and awesome views, think of the remodel/resell potential.

Great! Camping out all the time! Livin the Marin REI dream!

Would that be REI as in "Recreational Equipment, Inc." or "real estate investment"? Or was that pun intended and I was too dense to pick up on it?

Yes, REI as in "Recreational Equipment, Inc."

Looks like part of the prison in Tomb Raider II.

Coast artillery bunker, 1910-1930s vintage. Centered around an underground ammunition magazine, with tunnels out each end to open-topped gun pits for 14" guns on disappearing mounts. Smaller command rooms (some with windows) adjacent.

One advantage to underground ex-military bunkers is they stay cool year-round, like any earth-sheltered structure. Disadvantage is, one this old is going to be damp and leaky.

Hilarious!! I would actually have believed this was a Marin listing had I not spent hours exploring the bunkers around the headlands as a child. Good one...
