Danby VT $695,000
4 Beds | 4 Baths | 3,600 Sq Ft
Constructed in 1872
To be honest, a tad more dilapidation might just catapult this 1872 beauty to a whole new level. But hey, as it stands, it underwent a complete renovation in 2014 (which I'm sure left the resident ghosts somewhat disgruntled). Nevertheless, it retains its wonderfully eerie Victorian allure. That extraordinary turret, in particular, is quite captivating.
Claysville PA $495,000
5 Beds | 4 Baths | 4,015 Sq Ft
Constructed in 1880
If you're in search of your very own eerie time capsule at what I consider a rather reasonable cost, look no further. This Victorian marvel is a complete mystery, boasting an impressive combination of a mansard roof and tower. What sets this 1880 gem apart is its exceptional condition, unlike many of the aging mansions you find in the area.
Lockport, NY $99,999
5 Beds | 2 Baths | 2,214 Sq Ft
Constructed in 1852
And the winner of this year's spookiest basement award is...
I must confess, the realtor's warning of "ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. SOLD AS IS, adds to the terror of these rooms. The admonition to wear gloves, mask, and boots" doesn't exactly instill confidence. The unsettling presence of a vintage baby stroller in the basement adds to the eerie ambiance, making it seem like something straight out of a nightmare. However, this mid-Victorian is a treasure. With over seven acres of land, it holds the potential to be a fantastic investment for the right buyer.
Port Townsend WA 1.5 million
11 Beds | 10 Baths | 5,796 Sq Ft
Constructed in 1889
Aptly named "The Grand Dome," this architectural marvel screams the exuberance of the Victorian era. If the dizzying spiral staircase doesn't ignite your imagination, I'm not sure what will. I can easily envision a ghostly figure gracefully descending it in the stillness of the night.
Each of these properties, with its ghostly secrets or historical mysteries, is a testament to the enduring allure of the past. Whether or not you believe in ghosts, one thing's for certain — these homes have the power to ignite your imagination. So, if you're ready for a real estate experience that goes beyond the ordinary, step into these spooky abodes, and let your own story become part of their mystery.
