A real life “haunted” farmhouse is up for sale and worth more than a million dollars because it inspired a successful horror movie franchise.
Reported by The Wall Street Journal, the Rhode Island farmhouse, which does look rustic, even spooky, is up for sale, and its market price is $1.2 million.
Benjamin Kean and Ben Guglielmi of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty present the 14-room, 3,100 sq. ft. home on 8.5 acres as a “ghost house,” which is a real life attraction in Burrillville, R.I.
“Legend has it, the home is haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who lived in the house in the 1800s,” the agency said. “To this day, countless happenings have been reported.”
The current owners, Jenn and Cory Heinzen, who moved in in 2019 and at first only occupied a single downstairs room, have been hosting events and renting rooms to ghost enthusiasts who stay at the house for thrills.
The Journal reported that the couple are booked throughout 2022.
“I’m looking for someone who will continue to run the business as we’ve started it,” Jenn said, according to the Journal.
The Heinzens are self-described paranormal investigators who bought the farmhouse for $439,000.
It is interesting to note that the previous owners who sold it to the Heinzens never complained about ghosts.
“The Conjuring” was not filmed at the house — it was shot in North Carolina — but was said to be based on the experiences of the Perron family that lived there in the 1970s, The Providence Journal reported.
