While the latest season of Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story might be over, fans who are in need of a fix can get theirs if they're ever in Los Angeles and looking for a place to spend the night: you can now check into the original residence used as the titular location for AHS: Murder House for $1,450 a night, all thanks to Airbnb.
The mansion, which went on the market in 2012, sold in 2015 for $3.2 million to an actress named Angela Oakenfold, the ex-wife of DJ Paul Oakenfold, and her domestic partner. As LA Curbed noted at the time of the purchase, the market had been on and off the market for more than a decade prior — since 1999.
The home itself was constructed in either 1908 or 1902 (reports vary), and designed by its namesake, architect (and roller coaster designer) Alfred Rosenheim.
If the Murder House looked somewhat familiar to viewers who first tuned into the first season of AHS back in 2011, there's a good reason: the mansion was also used as a set for television shows like The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and even one of the most important seminal shows in the TV horror genre, The Twilight Zone.
According to the home's Airbnb page, the Alfred Rosenheim Mansion can accommodate "16 plus," with nine bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Airbnb users can book either the entire house or selected "apartments" within, and can expect amenities like Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer unit, cable, free parking and kitchen access.
Here is Airbnb's description of the estate:
"One Of The Most Important Estates Ever Built in Los Angeles, The Alfred Rosenheim Mansion Was Declared A Historical Monument And Cultural Landmark. Built In 1908 This Stunning Architectural Masterpiece Boasts Original Features Throughout [sic]."
If you decide you want to Airbnb it with hopes of coming across the Infantata, chainsaw-wielding home-invaders, Evan Peters in a gimp suit or the ghost of Kate Mara, you might be disappointed. As Roadtrippers reported, despite the mansion's colorful past residents, which included mining magnate A.J. McQuatters, actor Edward Everett Horton and after that an Catholic Order of Nuns called Sisters of Social Service, who converted the home into a convent during their tenure, there are no reports or stories of any ghostly activity on the premises.
For those who want to get a taste of the hauntings featured in AHS season 1, you can always trek up to Connecticut, home of the Bailey Mansion — the actual inspiration behind the show's Murder Home. Purportedly once both a residence and a funeral parlor, the house was the site of a murder-suicide.
