Description - Iconic Cold War Site

Are you looking for the ultimate DIY challenge, a home worthy of Grand Designs, a slice of Cold War history or just to survive a Zombie Apocalypse? Deep in the Kingdom of Fife we may just have found the property for you.

Built on what was RAF Balado Bridge, a World War Two airfield where Polish pilots trained on Hurricanes and Spitfires, the 'Golf Ball' dominates the landscape.

The now inactive NATO Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) early warning radar is situated in 9 acres of land surrounded, as you'd expect, by a burglar-proof double layer security fence.

Opened by Princess Anne in 1985 the white fibreglass radome houses a large dish antenna which could be rotated and elevated to point in any desired direction.

Linked to the main equipment building by a corridor and doors built to withstand a Nuclear, Biological or Chemical attack there's an additional emergency power generator room and an accommodation block which housed the station mess, recreation, and office facilities.

There's also garages, diesel tanks and a sizeable guardhouse with full facilities including a kitchen and toilet... what more could you want?

Well, it's close to local facilities and those all important schools, being just two minutes from the town of Kinross and a mile from Junction 6 of the M90 motorway - making Edinburgh just a half hour commute away.

Situation - Kinross-shire is a beautiful county bordered by Perthshire, Fife and Clackmannanshire. Set amidst gently rolling hills this and known as the gateway to the Highlands this is the perfect location for a residential, commercial or leisure development.

Prime development land suitable for a variety of uses as a gated complex, retirement village, data centre, secure storage, leisure, high end residential etc.

The former Balado Bridge NATO Communications Facility is surrounded by secure fencing the facility includes the former satcom ground station The Radome (Golf Ball) is linked by corridor to the equipment building and recreation accommodation and office building. A guardhouse was built at a later date and is situated close to the main gate and contains an office area, small recreation area, toilets and kitchen.

There are a number of outbuildings including workshop/garage and diesel fuel tanks.
