Do you like it when things go bump in the night? Do you consider yourself slightly morbid? Do you have USD $1450 to splash out on an overnight stay?

If you do, then you can now live out your morbid fantasies as a guest at the Alfred Rosenheim Mansion, otherwise known as the Murder House from the first season of American Horror Story, as well as countless other shows like The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

Built in 1908 by Alfred Rosenheim as his own personal residence, the 14,000-square-foot, nine-bedroom mansion has passed through the hands of numerous owners, including a Catholic convent, and has been a popular filming location for over 100 years.

The house was fantastic: Full of history and carrying her scars and scratches from a long and eventful life with pride ... beds, blankets and linens were top class, kitchen well equipped and our party of five made good use of it, both for relaxation and as an alternative meeting place with colleagues from Hollywood. If you are looking for something soulful, and do not expect everything to be brand new and shiny, this place is it.

No images of a basement are available, but we can all assume that this is what would be waiting for us:
