Chilling house from 'Silence of the Lambs' up for sale just in time for Halloween


Buffalo Bill’s house is up for sale, but do you dare live in the creepy house from thriller “Silence of the Lambs”?

The Queen Anne-style home was used as a set in the 1991 classic, but has been a fully livable home ever since.

The listing for the four-bedroom home located in a suburb of Pennsylvania reads: "This 3-story Princess Anne Victorian located in Perryopolis was the home of Buffalo Bill in the film 'The Silence of the Lambs' and is situated on 1.76 acres of level land along the Youghiogheny River.”

“Most of America has seen this house but now you have a chance to buy it,” the real-estate agents boast in the video tour.

There are definitely parts of the home that fans will recognize from the film including the foyer.

However, don’t expect to find a well in the basement since that was filmed at a sound stage. The agents say that the brick-lined cold cellar is “actually kind of creepy” in its own way.

Much of the original home has been preserved including “hardwood floors, woodwork, light fixtures, pocket doors, fireplaces and wallpaper are in pristine condition, dating back to 1910 when the home was built.”

There have been some new improvements including “reflooring the wrap-around porch and gazebo, a rose bed garden and fountain were added at the front, refinished hardwood floors in attic, new hot water tank, well pump and UV filter. "

Aside from being featured in the film, the 140-year-old house has historical significance. Back in the 1880s, the garage was a general store, post office, and train station.

It could be yours for just $298,500.

If you’re a fan of the movie and simply interested in driving by, the house is located at 8 Circle Street in Perryopolis.
