‘American Horror Story’ house finally finds a buyer


The “American Horror Story” house immortalized in the FX series has finally sold for $3.2 million in what must have been a listing agent horror story of sorts.

The Tudor-style house in L.A.’s Arlington Heights area has been on and off the market for years at prices ranging from $17 million to the latest asking figure of $3.678 million.

The Alfred F. Rosenheim Mansion, built in 1908, captured the imagination of TV viewers nationwide when it was used as the haunted setting for the first season of the show.


Amid the 10,000 or so square feet of nooks and crannies are Tiffany stained-glass windows, period light fixtures, Peruvian mahogany paneling, a billiards room, a sunroom, six Batchelder tile fireplaces, six bedrooms and five bathrooms.

A chapel has 56-foot-tall ceilings. Just for good measure, there’s a hidden room in the basement, a gym and a recording studio.

White paint in the interiors appears to have exorcised many of the demons from earlier listing incarnations.

The series, created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, has been renewed for a fifth season to air this fall.

The Los Angeles historic-cultural monument was listed by Stephen Apelian and Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker. Apelian also represented the buyer.
