Famous ‘Silence of the Lambs’ House Goes Up For Sale
Buffalo Bill's house in the award-winning 1991 film, The Silence of the Lambs is hitting the market just in time for Halloween. The three-story Princess Anne Victorian house located in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania and boasts four-bedrooms. It is situated on 1.76 acres of land that lies along the Youghiogheny River. You can make this house your own and buy it for just under $300,000! It reportedly still has the same "serial killer charm" it did back in the early 1990s.
There hasn't been too many renovations to the home as it's exterior is mostly unchanged since the film. There are a few minor landscaping and painting changes however. The foyer has many of the original features. You'll notice the trim and hardwood floors pictured the same now as they were in the film. The dining room where Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) was filmed confronting Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), remains in similar condition as well.
This Hollywood horror house has it's own unique history separate from the movie. A detached garage, now a workspace, once served as the town of Perryopolis' post office and train station. There's been a vintage caboose placed next to an in-ground pool too.
The home was recently on the market back in 2016. Animal rights group PETA wanted to purchase the home and turn it into an “empathy museum,” where visitors could wear the skin of mistreated animals, just like Buffalo Bill did in the film. That idea is almost as creepy as the actual movie in my opinion!
