Buffalo Bill's House From The Silence of the Lambs Is Up for Sale
A horror movie landmark is up for sale. The farmhouse in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, that served as serial killer Buffalo Bill's home in the 1992 film The Silence of the Lambs can now be yours for an asking price of less than $300,000, Travel + Leisure reports.
With four bedrooms, the home is the perfect place for a family—or you and your Bichon Frise. It was built in 1910 and the interior and exterior still retain their vintage charm. Amenities include a pool, gazebo, fountain, rose garden, and three-car garage. Bill's more sinister additions, like the pit in the basement, are thankfully missing from the real-life property.
After its release, The Silence of the Lambs became the first and only horror movie to win the Oscar for Best Picture. To date, only six films in the genre have been nominated for the honor. Anthony Hopkins's Hannibal Lecter is the film's main villain, but Buffalo Bill and his basket of lotion have scared plenty of fans as well.
"Rare Opportunity to own a prominent property featured in an Academy Award Winning Movie," the listing reads. "With everything the home offers AND ties to the classic horror film [this] ionic property would make for an amazing Airbnb!"
Scott and Barbara Lloyd, who owned the home when it was featured in The Silence of the Lambs, listed the property in 2015. Now it's being offered for an asking price of $298,500 by real estate team Eileen Allan and Shannon Assad. If the virtual tour below doesn't scare you off, you can learn more about the house here.
