'Unique' House With Nine-Cell Jail In Basement Goes On Sale For $350,000

'Unique' House With Nine-Cell Jail In Basement Goes On Sale For $350,000

A stunning Victorian home has gone on the market in Missouri for $350,000 (£267,462), complete with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and, er, a nine-cell jail in the basement. As you do.

Built in 1875, from the outside the property looks like a quaint family home, with red bricks, a small front porch and welcoming garden with plenty of trees.

Even inside, the home has been kitted out nicely and has plenty of high ceilings, large windows and ornate fireplaces.

However, beneath the 'unique' house in Fayette, Howard County, lies a bit of a surprising twist, as there's a whole complex of jail cells.

Why? Because it used to be the Howard County Sheriff's House and Jail, obviously.

"Wait until you get to picture #30!!" House of Brokers Realty says in its listing, referring to the home as an 'extremely unique opportunity'.

The house was given an estimated $1.5 million renovation in 2005, meaning the historic site looks fairly slick and modern inside - where you'll find 2,465 sq ft of space.

Along with two bedrooms, one bathroom and another half bathroom, there's also a spacious living room and separate dining room and a bright kitchen.

But when you get downstairs, those smart floorboards and 'high end finish' make way for surreal grey walls and metal bars, as the home shows off its penal past.

"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."

There's no denying it's a pretty creepy addition to a home, but it's certainly a solid talking point for when conversation at the dinner table runs a little dry. Plus, just imagine the parties you could throw down there...

Check out the full listing for the house here.
