While scrolling through home finding websites you might find some interesting properties up for sale. A quaint 4 bedroom 2 bath cottage with a great exterior might catch your eye, complete with a row of prison cells. Yes, you read that right! A 2,190 sq ft home is listed in Guildhall, Vermont with an entire abandoned jail in the north wing of the house.
The formerly functioning jail-house was once the Essex County Jail and was the full time residence of the jailer. Untouched since the “facility” closed in 1969, prospective buyers will find the original rusty toilets, barred windows, and jailer’s office.
The main part of the home is completely modernized, just the prison quarters retaining historic roots. At an asking price of only $149,000, the listing suggests buyers to “bring your own ideas on what this 28′ x 40′ wing could be!” This opportunity would be a great canvas for a DIY dream home, or could even become a feature in the growingly popular Escape Room adventures.
