The Grounds : The Grounds occupy a three-mile stretch between Greymalkin
Lane and Breakstone Lake, on 200 acres of wooded land. The Ground around the
main house, leading down the lake are well tended, but the remaining land,
particularly near the property lines, is left wooded. The Property rises to the
east in low foothill. A landing strip is hidden in this hills.
Before its first destruction, the main building
was visible from the surface. Now, the visible building include the Garage, the
Boat house and the communication towers. The Hangars and the turntables for the
aircraft are locate underground, as are a set of tunnel for transporting personnel
and large objects between the strip and the mansion. An emergency entrance also
links the underground hangars with an airlock into Breakstone Lake.
Buried beneath the property is a VLF (very-low
Frequency) antenna used for world-wide communication. The antenna was hooked
into the Cerebro mutant-detection equipment within the mansion before the main
building was destroyed.
