If you’re a fan of horror, you are most likely a fan of American Horror Story, a new drama that has currently wrapped up it’s first season on the FX cable network.
Rumor has it that the story was inspired by a home in Los Feliz, CA. with a lot of creepy history around it, however, the actual home that is being used for filming is not creepy at all.
Located at 1120 Winchester Place in Los Angeles, 10,000+ square foot house with six bedrooms, and five baths sits on a well manicured 30,000 square foot lot. With Tiffany stained glass, deep, rich wood, and expansive rooms, the Los Angeles Cultural Monument is grand and breathtaking. And the best part about it – it’s for sale for a cool $17 million.
If you’ve watched American Horror Story, you’re familiar with the home already. You’ll quickly recognize the grand staircase, the entry way, and the marble bathroom where several gory scenes have been filmed.
The home was built by fame architect Alfred Rosenheim as his personal residence in 1902. He also built the famous Doheny Mansion (aka Greystone Mansion) currently owned by the City of Beverly Hills.
Fun Fact: When I lived in Beverly Hills I was a docent at Greystone and witnessed several paranormal events on the site. The original owner of the home, Ned Doheny, was murdered in this home and the crime remains unsolved to this day.
But I digress…
Is 1120 Winchester Place a stigmatized home? Absolutely not. It is a charming residence, once considered the most grand home in Los Angeles. Interested in buying it? Give me a call – I am happy to represent you as your Realtor!
