Built in 1935, this deserted military barracks is located right on the coast of Llucmajorone of the southernmost municipalities on the island. It is now being sold as a stunning estate and is on the market for a cool €3.8 million, which is around £3.3 million ($3.8m).

According to the listing, the military barracks come kitted out with eight bedrooms, two bathrooms and a total of 5,758 square feet of inside space.

If you've ever wanted to get your hands on a unique property that boasts plenty of space, history and character, then this abandoned air force base in Gettysburg, South Dakota, could be for you. The sprawling former military site has outbuildings, land, and secret features galore, all for a hefty £3.9 million ($4.5m). 
Before it was abandoned, the property was Gettysburg Air Force Station. It became operational in July 1956 and the workers' mission was not only to track and identify aircraft entering the surrounding air space, but to guide Air Force interceptors to any identified enemy aircraft. The base played a key role during the Cold War too and was just one of 28 sites selected for radar surveillance. Initially, the crew consisted of 25 airmen, three officers and three civilians, according to FortWiki.
After the Cold War, there was little use for the base and it was deactivated in June 1968. Around an acre of land was retained by the government and the rest was left to fall into a state of decay. In 2007 it was snapped up by current owner Lev Goukassian, a retired businessman from California. 
Spanning 42 acres, the property is surrounded by farmland, making it ideal for a buyer looking for a remote, disaster-proof retreat. As well as endless land, the listing also includes countless outbuildings, such as the former barracks, an operations centre, and a mess hall. There are various old vehicles and discarded military memorabilia strewn around the site too. Yet the property's most mysterious and enticing feature has to be its secret underground bunker
The only sign that the subterranean space exists is this heavy, steel trap door that's pretty well concealed. Beneath the impenetrable door, you'll find a seemingly never-ending secret tunnel, which connects the base's many buildings. Military personnel likely used the passageway to move between locations without being seenor to transport equipment in poor weather. If you're keen to take on this unique piece of military history, then you can contact the current owner directly via Facebook Marketplace.
