For Sale: Luxury Home with Its Own 9-Cell Jail

Having some guests over for a long stay? Then this home in Fayette, Missouri is perfect for you and 9 of your friends (or 18 if they double up). That's because this house, which was built in 1875, was originally the home and office of the county sheriff.

A door off the kitchen leads down to the restored 9-cell facility, which is appropriately painted grey.

There's also a booking room, so you can process your guests for their indefinite stay. Each cell lock, the realtor confirms, still works. You can, though, still prank your brother-in-law by pretending that you've lost the key after he's stepped inside one of the cells.
