LEWIS, N.Y. -

A decommissioned nuclear missile silo is what Alexander Michael calls home. The historic relic is nestled deep in the Adirondack sitting on 8 acres in Lewis, New York.

At first glance, the property looks abandoned but the real treasures are hidden below.

The silo's one bathroom and one living room are several floors into the Earth. Deeper into the silo is the control center which Michael uses as his bedroom. The panel that once controlled the nuclear missile is only feet from his bed.

The warning signs and escape hatches are all intact. World clocks adorn the kitchen walls.

"I'm going through the process of restoring the interior of it to as close to what it was during the day it was operating," said Michael.

Michael, who only stays at the property during the spring and fall, is looking to sell. His realtor, Brian Dominic, is expecting a lot of interest.

"We'll get probably a thousand emails, probably one hundred calls and that will lead to a hand full of people that will actually visit the property," said Dominic, acknowledging this type of property usually attracts an eclectic personality.

And the asking price for such an interesting property is only $750,000.
