“Haunted” American Idol House Listed for $12 Million
The house is not some Victorian-era mansion or even an abandoned mid-century modern from the 1960s. The American Idol house was built in 2008 and yet the contestants on Fox’s hit show claim that the place is indeed haunted.The home, now abandoned by the singers, has hit the Beverly Glen real estate market with a listing price of $12,000,000.
First reported by celebrity site TMZ, reports of paranormal activity began with “bizarre flickering lights” followed by an infestation of spiders. A few of the reality show stars told OK! Magazine that they saw “a hand falling down from the ceiling.” (They also admit to watching a horror movie at the time.)
But apparently the last straw was when several of the cast-mates “claim they watched a bed sheet suddenly take on a life of its own and float down an empty hallway.”
That and the roof leaked a little bit during a torrential Los Angeles rain storm.
Whether American Idol producers believed the singers, or were more concerned about potential flooding, they allowed the reality stars to pack up and relocate to a hotel for the time being.
And in the meantime, the $12,000,000 Los Angeles mansion is waiting for the right buyer — someone who doesn’t mind a few supernatural amenities.
The 9-bedroom, 9-bath “Tuscan compound” includes a pavilion pool and spa, dual winding staircases and granite, marble and hardwood features. The second floor hosts two adjacent master bedrooms with full baths and closets. The home sits on 2.14 gated, private acres with lavish landscaping including a waterfall and koi pond.
At this writing, median Beverly Glen home values are $1,200,700.
