Although I don't recommend that everyone seek a survival home of this variety, it does have its purpose for those who are acclimated to rural living or who have multiple adult children and their families who could help to live in and maintain such a property. The price for all that is contained is excellent. It would require someone very knowledgeable as to such a compound's maintenance requirements. Also, your due diligence should include understanding the water laws and sources of water available to this compound.
