The Alfred F. Rosenheim estate, otherwise known as the “Murder House” featured on “American Horror Story,” is now up for grabs! Originally built as a private home in 1908, the home boasts an enormous wooden interior that has quite the history attached to it (don’t worry—nothing murder-y about it!).
Not only has the Rosenheim mansion served as the backdrop for the best horror show on TV (sorry, “Walking Dead”), but Hollywood producers have long had this property on their radar. From “Old Blue Eyes” starring Frank Sinatra, to a Halloween episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and 2002’s “Spiderman,” the house seems to always be waiting for its close-up. Other shows featuring this unique residence include “CSI Miami,” “Law & Order,” “The Mentalist,” “Criminal Minds,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Californication” and many more.
With Tiffany stained glass windows and antique hand-painted ceilings, there are surely quite a few reasons for the home’s lengthy screen resume. Given the home’s classic and contemporary features, it can represent both old and new, transporting its owners (and viewers) back in time to whatever period or style is desired.
The Catholic Church once owned this property and built a chapel in the house in 1954. Since being declared an L.A. Historic Cultural Monument in 1999, the estate has been the primary residence of music producer John Gocha (and Greta von Steinbauer) and boasts a private, professional recording studio in the grand ballroom, which was formerly the chapel. In addition, the three-story home has six oversized bedrooms, five baths, and a solarium overlooking the beautiful park-like grounds complete with a private pine forest.
Just stay out of that basement…kidding! We’re kidding!
