Former Jail Now a Stunning Home Where House Arrest Is a Good Thing
It's always fun to find homes for sale that have unique features, but this may be one of the most unique homes that I have ever seen.
A listing from Jeffrey Radel with House of Brokers Realty for a home in Fayette, Missouri (located thirty minutes from Columbia, Missouri - home of the University of Missouri) recently caught my attention. The two bedroom, one-and-a-half bath home was built in 1875, and while the outside still has that old brick home charm, the interior has been updated while still keeping some of its historic features. (The realtor says that a $1.5 million renovation was "supposedly" done on the home in 2005.) There's beautiful woodwork throughout the home, as well as stained glass windows and an ornate, and super cool, fireplace in the living room.
The master bathroom is the bathroom of my dreams, featuring a claw foot tub, plus a spacious shower and his and hers sinks.
But, there's also something that you don't generally see in a home - a fully functional, nine-cell jail with a booking room and a half bath. Take a look.
For just $350,000, this house seems like a steal. Plus, how cool would it be to be able to say that you own a house with a jail attached to it?
