Inside the Spooky Old House From American Horror Story

New, 10 comments

The utterly creeptastic Los Angeles mansion made famous by the FX show American Horror Story has gone to market, reports Gawker. It's here where the pilot was shot and where the fictional Harmon family lives among ghosts of brutal tragedies past, thus earning its reputation as "Murder House." In reality, though, all subsequent episodes have been shot on sets designed to replicate the interiors as closely as possible: the 15,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-bathroom mansion was built by AIA architect Alfred Rosenheim, who built the place for himself in 1910. Inside: "grandeur of a bygone era," with details such as Tiffany stained-glass windows and light fixtures, wood paneling and floors, vintage-tile fireplaces, beamed ceilings, gold and silver leaf ceilings, a ballroom, and a solarium. On the show, the property is positioned as the cheapest in the neighborhood because of all the horrible things that've happened there; in real life, of course, $4.5M is awfully not cheap. Careful before you plop down all that cash, though: those resident ghosts don't want anyone else moving in.
