The Rosenheim Mansion/ Murder House 'American Horror Story' Home Returns on the Market for $7.8 Million (VIDEO)
In another classic case of how being popular can up the ante for anything, the Rosenheim Mansion, in all its fictional haunted glory is up for sale at $7.8 Million. This Los Angeles mansion is the home where the first episode of FX Horror/thriller series 'American Horror Story' was shot.
The giant castle in the Hancock Park neighborhood earned the moniker of 'The Murder House' after the series was shot in the residence. Although the interiors look creepy and the backdrop served to be perfect for shooting, the home is absolutely harmless and not a single haunting has been reported in the house.
The Rosenheim Mansion is named after Alfred. F. Rosenheim, a prominent architect based in L.A. He built the house for his family and later it was occupied by a group of nuns called "The Grey Sisters". However, they moved out after the 1994 earthquake, reports Creepy LA.
Although the home is not haunted, it is definitely having some hard luck getting sold. Going on and off the market multiple times, it was last listed for $6.3 million before re-surfacing in Nov. 2013.
Listing records of the home state that the residence is a 7588 square feet, single family home comprising of six bedrooms and five bathrooms. Sitting on a 0.69 acre lot, the home three-story, tudor-style home is done up with classic taste. Interiors feature hardwood floors and beautiful flights of staircases with French doors and glass windows.
