Own the ‘American Horror Story’ Mansion

Fans of the season’s hottest new horror tv series “American Horror Story” now have the chance to own one of the show’s main characters – the “Murder House”, or more commonly known as “The Rosenheim Mansion.”  Sciencefiction.com assures potential buyers that the mansion is not actually haunted, but after watching the show could you live here?  If you haven’t watched yet, American Horror Story follows a family of three who moved from Boston to Los Angeles as a means of reconciling their past anguish.  They moved into this restored mansion, unaware that the home is haunted!

The mansion was originally designed by Alfred F. Rosenheim in 1908 to serve as his own personal residence.  Considering its age it’s amazing the amount of original details that have been retained.  Rosenheim and his family lived in the mansion for 10 years until they sold it in 1918 to A.J. McQuatters who used it as a Winter residence.  In the the 1930s the home was leased by actor Edward Everett Horton.  The home served as his residence when he was working in the studios.  In 1932 the mansion was taken over by the Sisters of Social Service who operated it as a convent.  This group added the chapel on the property which is currently being used as a recording studio for Planet Earth Records.  Given its unique past the mansion has been used for several film, tv & print shoots and can produce an annual income of up to $350,000!

 

The Alfred F. Rosenheim mansion located in Country Club Park is an irreplaceable masterpiece comprised of a 3-story main house plus a grand ballroom (formerly a chapel) currently used as a recording studio.  Comprising of 10,440 square feet the mansion includes details such as Tiffany stained glass windows, Tiffany light fixtures, Tiffany leaded-glass display cases and a museum quality set of Tiffany glass doors adorn this one of a kind residence.  Additional features include rich wood paneling, wood flooring, six original tile fireplaces, beamed ceilings and countless other details.

There is a formal dining room with antique gold and silver leaf hand painted ceilings.  There is also a large solarium overlooking the beautiful, private grounds.  Breathtaking in every respect, this residence evokes the quality and grandeur of a bygone era and represents a once in a generation opportunity.  Substantial tax savings through the mills act.
