Maybe the house is haunted in real life?
The house that is featured on FX’s newest hit drama American Horror Story is on the market for $4.5 million. The house, which is located at 1120 Westchester Place in Los Angeles, California is a 6 bedroom, 5 bathroom mansion that sits on a lot of 30,000 sg ft. The mansion where the pilot for American Horror Story was originally shot has a unique character just the house in the series. Real Estate agent Joe Babajian goes into details about the house.
“This is an irreplaceable masterpiece composed of a 3-story main house plus a grand ballroom (formerly a chapel) currently used as a recording studio. It has Tiffany leaded-glass display cases and a museum-qualtiy set of Tiffany glass doors” to “6 vintage tile fireplaces.”
Even though the house is up for sale, this will not impact the filming of the show. Connie Britton (Vivian Harmon) explained to The Washington Post that filming is already done for season one. Also, only the pilot was actually shot on location in the house. The rest of the series was shot on a soundstage in Los Angeles where the crew built exact replicas of the house. Everything from the kitchen, to the grand staircase in the main foyer is exactly what the house looks like in real life. Britton went into details on how the replica of the set felt exactly like the real house:
“That house is the most amazing thing. It is a location. We shot the entire pilot in that house in Los Angeles,” Britton says. “To shoot the series, they have actually built sets that are exact replicas. … When we’re on the set, it feels like we’re in that house, to the point where on the set you know if you run up the stairs to the second floor, it kind of ends. It sort of just ends into nothingness, like you could actually eventually walk off of a platform.”
American Horror Story airs Wednesdays at 10p.m. on FX.
