Real Haunted Houses for Sale in the U.S. – Would You Buy One?
For some people it's Halloween everyday. What if you lived in a haunted house everyday of the year? There are some real "haunted" houses for sale in the U.S. and they could be yours; for the right price.
The Historic Campbell Castle
The Castle Inn Riverside "The Historic Campbell Castle" as it is known was built over a two year period (1886-88) for Burton Harvey Campbell, a Cattle Baron. The home is a nod to the castles of Scotland and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This 11,000+ sq foot home has 17 bedrooms and 17 bathrooms with 3 1/2 baths, conference room, commercial kitchen, and sits on 2 acres of facing the river. It also is said to come with a few inhabitants that refuse to leave; and I can see why it's very beautiful! It has been mentioned that some of the architecture that was brought over from Europe still has spirits looming. True or not is up to you to find out!! Here is a little more about the house as it is currently.
Haunted Hill House
This house just happens to be down the road in Mineral Wells, Texas. The Haunted Hill House is a 5 bedroom/2 bath that sits on a 1.4 acre lot just down from another famous haunted building The Baker Hotel. The current owners do not live in the house, that was once a brothel in the late 1800's, but they do use it as a Paranormal Research Center and tourist attraction.
The house is only valued at a little over $26,000 but can be yours for the low, low price of $99,900....ghosts apparently raise the market value drastically! Still quiet a bargain though considering most haunted homes come with a million dollar price tag.
The Hampton Lillibridge
The Hampton Lillibridge home is a beautiful, historic, restored home that is part of the Georgia National Landmark Property. There have been reports of strange noises, footsteps, moving furniture, ghostly sightings, and more. You can read more about the home and it's strange phenomenons here. The home is currently listed at around $1.3 million dollars.
This mansion in Washington state has been run as a Bed & Breakfast and Boutique for the last few years but is currently for sale as a home, for the mere price of $850,000. George Sterrett built the mansion for his beloved wife Ann in 1889; they had one son. Today it is said that a few apparitions have been seen; possibly those of George and Ann and the Nanny. Shadowy figures (one with red hair), flickering lights, cold drafts, and shaky beds and chandeliers. So if you don't mind a few little quirks then this amazingly beautiful, coastal house could be yours.
The Dakota Building
The Dakota Building is located in New York City and was the one time home of John Lennon. Lennon was murdered at the entry of the building in 1980 and it seems his ghost doesn't want to leave. It is said that Yoko (Lennon's widow) has even seen John's ghost playing the piano in their apartment. He's not the only ghost hanging out there either. Reports of an Indian figure watching the entrance, children in the halls and a lady crying have all been noted of the building. There is currently a corner apartment available in the building at a reduced price of $14.5 million, if you're up for it!
I personally, would not buy a house that is 'rumored' to be haunted. I don't really believe in ghosts, but why take the chance. I would constantly be thinking that every little noise was a ghost. The mind would start playing tricks, even if there wasn't really anything there you would probably start believing it to be true. I say if they want the homes that badly then let them have it. What do you think? Would you buy a "haunted" house?
