Nicolas Cage’s Haunted House in New Orleans for Sale
Actor Nicolas Cage has never shied away from huge real estate investments. He just sold his Midtown penthouse in New York, is looking for back-up offers on his Bel Air Tudor, has his Las Vegas home on the market for $9,490,000, and is looking to sell two gorgeous New Orleans properties — one which is claimed to be a haunted house.
Cage’s French Quarter house at 1140 Royal St, New Orleans, LA 70116 is for sale for $3,550,000 (photo above). Known as the “LaLaurie Mansion,” it is considered the most haunted house in New Orleans. During an interview with David Letterman last year, Cage was quoted as saying the mansion is:
“…a very notorious house, a very famous house, meaning it is allegedly the most severely haunted house in the United States of America. “Some people have beach-front property, I have ghost-front property.”
Is the house really haunted? Or, does the LaLaurie story make for good urban legend? Cage’s problems with his homes aren’t because of some spiritual encounter, but more to do with the government. Cage owes the IRS more than $6.6 million in income taxes.
