I enjoyed the last Transformers movie, but these properties don’t turn into larger-than-life superhero toys. Rather, the ones featured below have all been used as something else at one point ... a tavern, vineyard, even a former Coast Guard station. But now they're all are available to be your next home. (Perhaps in the new year?)
Neala Vineyard -- Madison, Virginia
Tucked in a valley between Washington, D.C. and the University of Virginia, this c. 1840 Greek Revival is more than just a house (though what a house it is, with carefully restored features, a library, and more). The 209 acres also come with a productive vineyard as well as beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Foothills from every angle. Price tag: $3,750,000
Manana Sound Signal Station -- Manana Island, Maine
If living on a vineyard doesn’t do it for you, how about living on an island? The two-story, four-bedroom former Coast Guard Signal Station 10 miles off the coast of Maine is for sale via public online auction. The property also comes with a brick Sound Signal/Engine House and picturesque views of the ocean for as far as the eye can see. Price tag: Contact agent
Cumberland Hall -- Mooredale, Pennsylvania
Built in 1788 by James Moore as a Georgian Colonial stone tavern, Cumberland Hall has been a private residence since 1945, when the Moore estate sold the property. There are more than 20 rooms throughout the three-storied home, plus a two-level barn, brick toll house, and in-ground pool. Price tag: $850,000
