Celebrate your purchase of this lovely four-bedroom Victorian with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. The house that was used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs" is up for sale.
The house that was used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film "The Silence of the Lambs" is up for sale.
A film crew spent three days shooting in the foyer and dining room of the home near Perryopolis, about 30 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The owners, Scott and Barbara Lloyd, both 63, were married in that foyer on Feb. 13, 1977, a couple of months after buying the house.
"The Silence of the Lambs" won five Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
The home is located near the Youghiogheny River.
An in-ground pool sits in the backyard. The Lloyds are asking $300,000 for the home.
Real estate agent Dianne Wilk said she could envision someone turning the house into a bed-and-breakfast with a horror theme.
A dome-shaped gazebo is one of the home's many amenities.
Next to the pool is a vintage caboose, which serves as a pool house.
Hopefully there are no monsters in this 38-foot by 28-foot attic. "People love to be scared," Wilk said. "I could see somebody doing something fun with this."
