Sugar Grove Station / West Virginia


Those readers with a few bucks to spare and who fancy owning an entire US base with a decidedly spooky history should proceed directly here for the opportunity to bid on Sugar Grove Station in West Virginia.

The facility once served nearby antennas forming part of ECHELON, and although the eavesdropping kit isn’t included in the sale, for a bid in excess of $1m (way in excess, we reckon), you’ll get a wonderful fenced community including 80 single-family homes, a 53-unit accommodation block, fire station, day care centre, gymnasium, community centre, swimming pool, baseball field, running track, and so on — via Youtube
