Did you ever wish that you could relocate to a fortress in which you could wait out the Zombie Apocalypse?  Well, for the mere price of $649,000, a fortress can be yours.  The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home is on 4 wooded acres.

On the market in Yelm, Washington, is a prepper castle waiting for a family of survival-minded people. Sadly, there’s no moat, but there is a little pond in the back.

Yelm, according to Wikipedia, is a city in Thurston County with a population of 6,848

The home boasts of just about everything a prepper could want:

  • The walls are made from fire-proof concrete, poured 2 feet thick.  This moderates the temperature and protects the occupants from all but the very heaviest of artillery.
  • The house is ready to function off grid, should the need arise.
  • The crenalations on the roof look like excellent places from which to defend the castle.
  • The basement is protected by a Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical filter, keeping occupants safe in the event of a nuclear attack, a deadly pandemic, or biological warfare.
  • The basement has bunkrooms for sleeping, in the event the family needs to hunker down.
  • Small windows would make the home difficult to breach.

The pantry in the basement is so lovely that we stockpile-minded folks could probably write poetry to it.  (Although in a castle, I think the proper term is “larder”.)

For your pre-apocalypse needs, the home’s interior is filled with lovely touches, like arched doorways, a copper sink in the chef’s kitchen, and a large, rustic fireplace.

A girl can dream, right? If you happen to have more money kicking around than I do, you can find the listing HERE.

  • Wow Daisy! You sure know how to pick them! Amazing house….errr….fortress 🙂

    I see that you are moving! Right now you live very close to me. I find some comfort in that. Are you leaving CA? I have often thought of moving out of CA but this drought is kind of pushing me to consider it more seriously. I imagine the area surrounding the above property gets a lot of rain 🙂

    • Hi Kat – nope, staying in the area. Just moving to a place with land and a barn so I can extend my homesteading efforts 🙂


      • Yes, it’s really nice to have some land and a barn, although I have filled my barn and land with things that I probably should not be keeping. (“Gee, I might need that someday!”) Funny how “precious stuff” expands to fill the space. LOL!

        I live in Apple Hill. I do love the beautiful CA foothills. Now if we can just get this water situation resolved!
