This listing would certainly be an interesting buy.
A former bank that’s been converted into a four-bed house is now up for sale at $765,000 (around £633,671) – complete with three original vaults.
The bank, based in Vermont, has been given a second lease of life, after spending years storing wealth.
Located in historic Bennington, the renovated two-storey property has a spacious 3,700 sq ft ground floor with a classic mezzanine.
It’s perfect for an office or commercial space – or a grand home.
Upstairs, there are four bedrooms and two three-quarter bathrooms.

There’s also the kitchen and dining area on the top floor.
The upstairs residence comes with a private entrance and features windows with views of the Green Mountains, making it very picturesque.
The building dates back to 1931 and has many of its original features still in tact, such as ornate mouldings, polished brass chandeliers, ceiling medallions and the original marble teller.

On top of this, three of the bank’s original vaults – all of which are still in working order – are preserved.
Joel Lentzer, who currently owns the property, told NeedToKnow.online: ‘Living in a bank in the very centre of town is a unique experience.
‘It combines the energy of downtown out of one window with the serenity of the Green Mountains in another.’
The bank is adjacent to two new parks and a local theatre, so there’s lots to explore, not to mention it’s close to New York City, Albany and Boston.
This property is listed with Jason Saphire at Home Zu.
