Potential buyers are expressing interest in turning the two-storey bunker into a hotel or to store wine and cheese.

The bunker was originally built as a radar station in 1941 and was later redeveloped as a regional government base in 1950.

The base was on standby until the 1990s ready to accommodate 250 government workers in case of a nuclear attack.
