Creepy ‘Silence of the Lambs’ house up for sale for $298K

Buffalo Bill’s house from the iconic thriller “Silence of the Lambs” is up for grabs. Lotion not included.

The psychotic killer’s Queen Anne-style home was used as the set in the 1991 film classic, but has been a fully operational home since then. Now, it’s on the market for $298,500.

“Most of America has seen this house but now you have a chance to buy it,” say the real-estate agents, the Sisters, in a video tour.

The four bedroom home with a sprawling front porch sits on 1.7 acres in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, along the train tracks featured in the opening shot of the Buffalo Bill scene.

The foyer has many of the original features, such as the trim and hardwood floors, pictured in the Academy Award-winning film. The dining room, where Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) was filmed confronting Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), still has that same serial killer charm.

The basement, though dark and foreboding, does not include a hole with a well and a basket — that part was filmed at a sound stage. However, also included in the subterranean storage area is a brick-lined cold cellar, which is “actually kind of creepy,” the agents admit.

For all its Hollywood lore, the home also includes a bit of real life history. A detached garage, converted into a workspace, was once the town’s post office and train station. And a vintage caboose has been placed next to an in-ground pool.

The home has had competition in the past, according to Yahoo News. When it was on the market in 2016, animal rights group PETA offered to buy it and turn it into an “empathy museum,” where visitors could wear the skin of mistreated animals, just like old Bill.
