  • Hi Sarah ! Thank you so much for the kind words about our house. You have no idea how nice it is to have someone acknowledge and recognize the effort and $ my husband and I have contributed to the “Big Ole Mansion”. You have it right- she was a money pit, but now she is very easy to maintain. Believe me- I love this house and will feel a massive void in my heart once she sells. It is not for the $ that we are selling-

    Kind Regards,
    Joni May

      You have done AMAZING work on that place! It is gorgeous! Hopefully some new owners come along to carry-on as caretakers for that historic home/Inn!

    I stumbled upon this site after watching a Manson documentary. I have been a house junkie since I was a child, and of course was curious about 10050 Cielo Lane. What does the house look like now, who has lived there, and who lives there now?

    This site completely satisfied my curiosity about Cielo Lane and I am so happy to have found it!

    I love your site, and was intrigued more because of the Amityville house; the real question is “who WOULDN’T want to own this beautiful home” .. and it’s “interesting history”. I love how it has been re-done and the current owners are lucky. Love all the photos from inside the house too, owners definitely took pride in it, if i ever win the lottery; I would make them an offer they wouldn’t refuse lol :)

As a mother myself who was blessed to have a job that offered a lot of flexiblity to spend alot of time with my children, I completely understand, it’s time that is precious and fleeting! God bless,

    More crime scene houses, I love your site. You rock!

  • Darlene says:

    As relates to “The Hobbit House” has anyone entertained the idea of purchasing the house and moving it to another location? That way they would have the land which they could then sell off to a real-estate broker who wants to erect something not near as charming. If they did that they would probably be able to make a “pretty penny” profit AND save a landmark home from destruction. It makes me sad that another piece of history might fall to the wanton disrespect of those solely interested in making $$$.
