Zillow chose the historic Rosenheim mansion as the house of the week. This home is recognizable to fans all across the country as the “Murder House” in the first season of “American Horror Story” but the home’s real history is much less scary. The six-bedroom home in the Country Club Park area of Los Angeles was built in 1907 by architect Alfred F. Rosenheim as a private residence. It was later owned by the Catholic Church which constructed a chapel on the property that has since been turned into a recording studio.
There is not another property like this in Los Angeles. Tiffany stained-glass windows, custom woodwork, Batchelder tile fireplaces, and the formal dining room with handpainted ceiling speak to the home’s past. Updates makes this a highly liveable home for the discerning buyer who wants to own a legend.
The home has since had star turns on many television shows including: “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Spider-Man,” “CSI Miami,” “Law & Order,” “The Mentalist,” “Criminal Minds,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Californication.”
Rodeo Realty’s Joe Babajian has just listed it for $5 million, marketing it as “an enormous private palace with an appearance as intriguing as its history.”
