    Cool old building. Too bad they took out the old windows but probably needed to for security. Renick had 211 people in the 2010 census.

    Wow, good for Renick! .I wouldn’t have thought that the local market could support the asking price….shows what I know……

    Absolutely beautiful! That view when you walk in with the mosaic floor leading your eyes to the fireplace and cool glass wall. The only thing that concerns me is how small it is. I would think you could put one bedroom in it at most with maybe a bathroom in the vault. The one thing I would do first is knock out that brick where the windows go and restore the huge windows!

    Yes, the interior details are gorgeous, but why go to all the trouble of making the windows smaller? There are many ways to secure windows without going to that extreme. I agree, free the windows! Beautiful lot and interesting building.

      Maybe privacy if someone was turning this into a home. But I’d go for removing the brick, stalling windows with tinting when you look from the outside.

    Interesting. I expected this to be in the middle of a downtown, but it looks like it’s all by itself in the country!

    First thing to do is open up those big windows and let some sun in (while restoring the look of the original facade). Nice place; as someone else said, it would make a decent one-bedroom home.

    Just like that Masonic Temple the other day, they bricked up the lovely large windows and changed it’s character completely. Really like the mosaic floor. Wish they had kept those ornate teller windows and separator walls.

    This would make a great home but I’m with most of the others, restore the original size windows!

  9. It’s a shame they didn’t take more photos. Love to have seen the basement. The vault room you have for a unique bathroom. Restore the fireplaces and free the windows. Would make for a nice home.

    So it looks like there is a mission era light fixture in picture 27 along with appears to be a bathroom style mirror/cabinet. It wouldn’t take much to restore this back to the original layout. I personally wouldn’t mind having the walls up it makes an interesting floor layout when converting to a home. Definitely a talking feature in the hone is the safe or the whole building in general.
