The 'Amityville Horror' House Is For Sale


The Amityville Horror House that served as the inspiration for the infamous book and frightening films is now listed for sale on the market. The house sits at 108 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, NY and is listed on Zillow for $850K.

The 3600 square foot colonial home, built in 1927, includes five beds, four baths, two-car garage, and all the haunted history that fans of the book and films have become so familiar with. Joanne Mills, broker for the famous house told ABC News, "There is a value to the fact that it is this famous house." She continued by calling the house a 'double edge sword' and admitting, "The house is haunted, yes, but not by who you think. It's haunted by the curiosity seekers that make it difficult for the people that live there."

Mills mentioned the "owners have grown tired from the persistence of unwanted visitors who are all familiar with the home's frightening backstory." The infamous alleged crimes transpired at the house in 1976 by the DeFoe family. Then one year later, George and Katy Lutz bought the house and soon left after only 28 days because of the paranormal activity they allegedly experienced. They reported to witness horrors such as "strange sounds, voices, and green slime oozing from the walls."

The house for sale is the same one from the books and movies, but it has changed significantly on the interior and the exterior from the way it was depicted in the horror movies. Exterior changes included the removal of the infamous round exterior windows appearing to resemble a pair of eyes.


The house is up for sale, but it will not be open to the public for viewing because of the curiosity surrounding the story. While the house may be significantly different from what it was in 1976, it is yet to be determined whether or not paranormal activity still haunts the house after all these years.
