This once-grand, six-bedroom estate was being used as a ‘standing set’ for movies; often filling the role of a haunted mansion. Many celebrities have graced its Gothic halls, Lady Gaga, David Bowie, Lana Del Rey, Ewan McGregor, Christina Aguilera, Tori Kelly, Chainsmokers, Natalie La Rose, Dillon Francis, Queen and Slim and so many more…
Much of the furniture, decorative objects and clothing have been filmed over and over to enhance a decorator’s Victorian vibe. You now have the chance to buy a piece of Hollywood history and bring some of its vintage glamor home with you.
As the old saying goes “a picture is worth a thousand words” and a “thousand words” cannot convey the enormous amount of content this grand old house has.
