If the Murder House from Season 1 of American Horror Story didn't scare you away from LA completely, how would you feel about spending the night there?

For a while, the Murder House (actually called the Alfred Rosenheim Mansion) was listed on Airbnb for just $1,450 per night. It has since been removed, but the original listing looked like this:

One Of The Most Important Estates Ever Built in Los Angeles, The Alfred Rosenheim Mansion Was Declared A Historical Monument And Cultural Landmark. Built In 1908 This Stunning Architectural Masterpiece Boasts Original Features Throughout.

American Horror Story isn't the only creepy series to feature the Alfred Rosenheim Mansion. The house can also be seen in Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dexter, The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, and Alfred Hitchcock Presents.

As it turns out, the mansion itself might not be haunted (so they say). Get a look at these real estate photos below, and see for yourself. (N.B. There are no pictures listed of the basement...)

The Bedroom

Tate/Violet's room has had a cheery coat of paint and been cleared of any trace of SWOT teams or troubled teens.

The Bathroom

Luckily, it looks like they were able to get the ring out of the tub after Hayden filled it with blood.

The Parlor

The room that was once used as the setting for a sick serial killer to off a young coed in 1968 has since been converted into a spacious parlor. Check out those hardwood floors!

The Kitchen

Don't worry, they put in all new appliances after the dog-in-the-microwave incident.


Any tenant could make an entrance on these stairs, with or without the gimp suit.

The Master Bedroom

Rest your head in the same place where Constance shot her scumbag husband and Moira the Maid.

Front Door

You never know who's going to be behind this door... or maybe it's you and your friends, ready for a terrific LA vacation!

Would you spend the night in the Murder House?
