A home for sale in Missouri comes with room for nine inmates as photos reveal that the historic structure is connected to a former jail.
The Fayette, Mo., property is currently listed for $350,000 as a single-family home on House of Brokers Realty, where the listing boasts of the historic home built in 1875 and renovated in 2005. While must of the home’s interior looks updated and rather homey with “modern high end finishes with traditional architecture and character,” it’s a secret steel door in the kitchen that leads to the listing’s standout feature.
“THE BEST PART,” the listing reads, “connected to the home is a 2500 sq ft legitimate jail with 9 cells, booking room and 1/2 bath.”
Photos show the hidden entrance to the jail from the home, as well as a separate entrance directly into the jail from outside. The listing notes that the property used to be the Howard County Sheriff’s House, which would explain the jail attached. The rest of the home contains two bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths and an unfinished basement.
“Possibilities are amazing with this property,” says the listing.
The page doesn’t include any additional information about the jail or when it was last in use.
