“AND THE BEST PART, connected to the home is a 2500 sq ft legitimate jail with 9 cells, booking room and 1/2 bath. The cell door lock throws appear to be operational. Full basement under the home with lighting throughout. Possibilities are amazing with this property,” the property description says.
Dubbed a “notable historic property” in 2010 the outside windows for the jail cells still have bars over them!
The three-story home, located in Fayette, Missouri, was built in 1875, according to the House of Brokers Realty website. It was a former Howard County sheriff’s home/jail, and the cells are still there.
The functioning jail has even a booking area and the listing mentions one-and-a-half bathrooms but there are also several toilets in each of the jail cells.
From the outside, it looks like a perfect family home featuring beautiful stained-glass windows, polished hardwood floors, unique hardware and light fixtures and more.
Right off the city centre, the house is glam, historic and unique with a magazine-worthy kitchen and a metal door leading right to the jail cells.
