Amazing £800,000 London apartment for sale with own private underground bunker

London’s property market is a bit of a concrete jungle typified by exorbitant house prices and small living spaces.

But one property that has recently been advertised on Zoopla appears to buck that trend adding space and value (relatively speaking) through a curious feature – it has its own bunker.

The amazing property in Islington comes with two bedrooms and is just a stones throw from Angel London Underground station.

The building dates back to the 1930s

On the market for £800,000, the flat is situated in the grand Rosebery Avenue art deco building and has a host of curious features.

The kitchen and appliances are pleasingly modern and all the rooms are airy with great natural light.

But the main attraction of the property is undoubtedly its large underground bunker which is really another property in itself.
