    I thought this article was appropriate for the PlagueFest.com theme!
    Enjoy, Melvins! :grin:

    So the rumor is that the zombie apocalypse may have
    what does the CDC know? Just to be on the safe side, Realtor.com
    capable of putting those with an unquenchable thirst for
    human flesh at a distance from you and your family.
    others at Realtor.com. This slideshow is adapted from

    Epic Lake Castle in Miami, FL


    [IMG]
    Price: $10.9 million
    The Skinny: This insanely symmetrical, moat-surrounded
    masterpiece was designed by architect Charles Sieger. While
    it lacks a working drawbridge, simply destroying the only
    path that leads into the compound would be a logical first step.
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: The rapper Birdman filmed
    a music video here, so there’s likely to be an automatic weapon
    or two that got left behind.

    Nuclear Missile Silo Home in Saranac, NY
    Price: $750,000
    The Skinny: For a home that can withstand a zombie
    apocalypse, not to mention a nuclear apocalypse and other
    various apocalypses, $750,000 is a freakin’ bargain. Anyway,
    it’s a former nuclear silo-turned-luxury home. How cool is
    that?
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: Paved air-strip gets a
    nod, but the real bread and butter is the former launch control
    center that sits behind doors made of three-inch concrete
    and mesh, 125 feet underground. Oh, and there’s a Jacuzzi


    [IMG]
    Fortified Manse in Los Angeles, CA
    The Skinny: This crazy compound is the (paranoid?)
    masterpiece of one AI V. Corbi, the founder of a company
    called SAFE (Strategically Armored & Fortified Environments)
    that specializes in stuff like mounting lasers on sharks, build
    missile-proof yachts, line Escalades with tank armor, panic
    rooms, etc. It’s also set on a private hilltop behind a pair of
    gates, and has a helipad.
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: Not one, but two panic
    rooms and a pair of “safe cores,” which is basically when
    all the bedrooms go on lock-down mode with the twist of a
    doorknob.


    [IMG]
    East Sister Rock Island in Marathon, FL
    The Skinny: Private, remote island with its own breaker
    that has been designed to be self-sustaining with wind
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: Property includes not
    only a dock, but also a helicopter pad for making your
    escape, which might come in handy if the zombies pull a
    "Dawn of the Dead" reboot and figure out how to make a
    ship out of corpses.


    [IMG]
    Castle Rogue’s Manor in Eureka Springs, AR
    The Skinny: A massive and secluded mountain castle that
    could potentially provide residence for the masses. Also
    other structures.
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: A pair of guard towers
    and other tall structures for scouting and medieval archer
    (and sniper) defense.


    [IMG]
    Modern Castle in Austin, TX
    The Skinny: Concrete façade and a rooftop deck for
    headshot contests. Just under 4 acres and over 12,500
    square feet provides enough room to take in a roaming
    survivor or two, you know, to help fight off forces, grow
    crops, repopulating Earth, etc. Pick and choose wisely, folks.
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: 200-foot wood and steel
    escape home that leads from the main home to a private
    boathouse on the lake.


    [IMG]
    Missile-Proof Window Home in Cedar Key, FL
    Price: $695,000
    The Skinny: The name of this place kind of says it all,
    doesn’t it?
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: Double-lock ship’s doors
    and Galvalume siding make this one pad that the walking dead
    wouldn’t want to mess with.


    [IMG]
    Jamesburg Earth Station in Carmel Valley, CA
    Price: $3 million
    The Skinny: A former space communications satellite used
    during the Kennedy administration that’s loaded with tons of
    tech stuff (albeit dated tech stuff). Other amenities include a
    Bonus Zombie Defense Feature: If you manage to get this
    thing running, you might be able to contact an extraterrestrial
    life force to do one of two things: 1) kill the zombies or
    2) repopulate the earth with half-human, half-alien beings.
