The house is listed at $1.98 million.
As of lately, it seems like true crime and murder stories are all the rage – that, or we’ve come to a time where people aren’t afraid to share their fascination on the matter anymore. While listening to podcasts, reading books and watching viral documentaries are one thing… living inside of a former “murder house” resides in an entirely different realm.
A Los Angeles home that was unfortunately a target for Charles Manson followers is on the market in the hilly neighborhood of Los Feliz. Couple Leno and Rosemary LaBianca were murdered the night of August 10, 1969 – only one night after actress Sharon Tate and her four friends were murdered in Benedict Canyon. It’s a two-bedroom with one-and-a-half bathrooms on Waverly Drive and honestly, without knowledge of the horrific crimes that occurred in the residency 50 years ago it would look like your average L.A. single family property… with a pool!
The classic single-story home is described as “truly, one of a kind” on it’s Redfin profile – sporting views of Downtown Los Angeles and the Silver Lake hills in the front and back yard. Though there are modern touches made to the original landscape, the inside still sports its 1920s, uhh… charm.
It seems as though the Manson Family is starting to gain national attention once more. Maybe it’s because of the 50 year anniversary of their brutal crimes or the approaching release of Quentin Tarantino’s film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood where actress Margot Robbie stars as Sharon Tate? Whatever it be, we’re just hoping the house is on the market again because the owners know 2019 is such a hot year in relation to its history and not because of other, more unnerving, reasons.
