In the Market for a Haunted House?

by Christine DemosOctober 25, 2011

In honor of Halloween we thought we share some of the spookiest, creepiest and downright scary houses on the market today. There are definitely some benefits to living with another person, but when the other person isn’t exactly living on this earth it can become a creepy situation. For those of you who’d love the opportunity to live among the spirits of former residents, one of these may be your dream home! Here’s your chance to buy a haunted house of your own.

Ever dreamed of living in a castle? I’m guessing this isn’t what you had in mind. Built in 1927 this home features a huge dining hall that could have been the stage for a few Dracula scenes. The home also features faces carved into the wood paneling, creepy… I think so! A guesthouse and lookout perch completes this home. As an added minor detail the home is sold as is.

This home looks all cute and sweet right? Does the name Charles Addams ring a bell? Well if not, he was the creator of the New Yorker cartoon The Addams Family. That cartoon has since been turned into a TV series, two movies and new Broadway play. This bright and beautiful house was once Charles Addams home, not exactly what you expected huh? I’m quite sure it didn’t look like this in the early 1900s!

The home is known as Kimball Castle and has been the feature of a “Ghost Hunters” episode. The home is said to be filled with ghosts. Previous owners have been quoted as saying “There was doors opening and closing as well as seeing a figure in the living room.” They also said they heard the sound of horses by the old stables. Yeah, that would totally make me move! On the bright side, the home features beautiful lake and mountain views and is surrounded by 206 acres of conservation land.

Located in a town that bills itself as “The Largest Ghost Town in America” is this beautiful (and allegedly haunted) bed and breakfast. For $1.2 million you can be the proud owner of this gorgeous property along with spirits who are known to wander around it! Who wouldn’t want to live in a place with a supposed couple who dance by the moonlight, yet you never see during the day? Oh yeah that’s right ME! For more history on the home, click here.

Happy Halloween!
