The Safest Home in America is For Sale

The Rice House, near Atlanta is up for sale. It covers 36,000 square feet and has eight bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, three kitchens, a private museum, a wine cellar, an indoor shooting range, and commercial-grade elevators. The price has dropped from $17.5 million to $14.7 million, so it definitely a bargain. But none of that is what makes this house stand out from the rest. It's the security features.

The master and guest bedrooms have ballistic doors that can withstand fire from an AK-47 assault rifle. The car vault is large enough to hold 30 vehicles and has an entrance designed to be concealed by a waterfall. Secret doors lead to a 15,000-square-foot bunker  in which an embattled owner could conceivably hole up for years, with off-grid power and water drawn from three artesian wells drilled 1,000 feet into the ground. The house had its own security architect who spent two decades designing secure buildings for the U.S. Department of Justice.

Listing materials boast that it is “one of, if not the, safest home in America.”

Oh yeah, and it's never been lived in. While the house is completely constructed, there are some finals details that have yet to be added. You can see the Rice House inside and out at Sotheby's real estate listing. -via Digg
