Picture: Brian CasseyBut back to that Bulimba bunker.Mr Lawsen said it may have been used as a garage at one point — who knows, he said — but the current owners children, who have now flown the nest, used it as a teenagers retreat.“It was their teen hangout,” he said.And as for the house itself, Mr Lawsen said the residence is an attractive house with amazing views and character features.“But it needs some work,” he said.The one and only internal shot of the houseThe first floor is home to the open plan living, dining and kitchen area which flows out to the front and rear deck.A separate, second living area, two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms are also on this level, as is the master bedroom which has a bay window and a private ensuite.Downstairs are three more bedrooms, all with built-in-wardrobes, a large office and a rumpus room.This level also has access to the grassy landscaped backyard which lies above the hidden bunker.You would never know the bunker existed from the front of the houseOther features include an in-ground pool, two street access and space for up to four vehicles.Meanwhile in Ayr, south of Townsville, a “rock solid” masonry home on five acres has an underground bunker that doubles as a wine cellar and a cyclone shelter.It also has well-established and profitable market gardenwith about three irrigated acres of chillies, 40 lime trees and approximately 50 well-kept mango trees.Near Gladstone, a five-bedroom house on 6.32 hectares comes with its own steel and concrete cyclone bunkerlast_img
