Two-bedroom London flat features garden door leading to underground bunker

A two-bedroom flat comes with its very own underground bunker – and it’s on the market for £800,000.

The London home is located in the Art Deco “Lab Building” development on Rosebery Avenue in Clerkenwell.

It features incredibly high ceilings, bright rooms and even a patio terrace which is perfect for a morning coffee.

But the property has a pretty cool feature which lies behind a narrow lilac door in the garden.

Stairs lead down under the soil to a 1,610 square foot bunker, featuring blast-proof doors, heating and a ventilation system.

The home forms part of a “New River Head” development, which was built between 1936 and 1938.

It was once the headquarters for the Metropolitan Water Board.

Now the property is currently up for sale with Unique Estates Property Services with the bunker described as an “amazing space”.

In the description it says the flat offers the occupier a “different style of residence from normal flats”.

It added: “There is also a separate underground bunker that has a very spacious fully refurbished space which could ideally be used as an office or a music room, gym or just storage; an amazing space.”

The description continued: “The Laboratory Building still retains much of its 1930’s style with original hallways, a large beautifully maintained communal rose garden and daytime concierge.

“The bunker has a ventilation system and heaters, it also has lights throughout (lower lighting, walls and ceiling) with separate switches for different sections.

“Fully private and sole use throughout.”

Joanna Lewis, from Kent, bought the run-down property in 2018 with the hopes of transforming it into a dream house.

The mum-of-two turned the “ugliest house on the street” into an unrecognisable home which took two years to renovate.

She began with her fiancé Adam where they converted the downstairs kitchen, bathroom and bedroom into an open plan space.
