The House That Inspired The Conjuring Film Franchise Is Up For Sale And Can Be Yours – If You Dare


If you fancy a personal spookyfier for a home, you are in luck. One of the most famous haunted houses in the world, the one that inspired The Conjuring, is up for sale for $1.2m.

It is a farmhouse in Harrisville, Rhode Island, USA, built circa 1826 and believed to be haunted by Bathsheba Sherman, who lived there in the 1800s. The mysterious death of Sherman and her baby gave way to rumours that she was a witch who killed her baby as a sacrifice to satan.

“The Conjuring” was released in 2013.

Cory and Jennifer Heinzen, owners of the house since 2019, have witnessed strange events unfolding shortly after moving into the home, as Cory told a local American station:

“It’s been very busy, doors opening and closing on their own, footsteps, knocking (and) disembodied voices.”

He added: “Last night, we had a black mist in one of the rooms. It looks like smoke. It’ll gather in one area and then it’ll move”.

Cory and Jennifer Heinzen are the new owners of the spooky house.

The farmhouse became famous after the visit of celebrity paranormal researchers Ed and Lorraine Warren in the 70s. Their reports inspired The Conjuring franchise.

The Warrens were invited to the house by then residents, the Perron family complied by a mom, a dead, and five daughters. One of the daughters wrote a chilling book called House of Darkness House of Light telling of floating coat hangers, hand scythes attacks, constant low temperature and putrid odours inside the house.

The Warrens lived at the house for approximately a decade before finally growing convinced that, yes, ghosts are petty and, yes, they do want to break the real state market by haunting the most beautiful properties out there.

In case you have been living in a basement without Netflix for the past ten years, here is what happens in The Conjuring: the mother, Carolyn Perron, is possessed by the spirit of a witch, Bathsheba Sherman, who starts terrorizing everyone. Spoiler alert: the Warrens exorcise the mother in the end.

Currently a hotspot for paranormal researchers, ghost hunters and horror aficionados, the house is fully functioning and completely restored, currently offering overnight rentals.

With 14 rooms to satisfy your need for terror, the house with three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms (whatever that means), has approximately 300,000 square metres and sits on eight acres of horrifying trees and natural life. However, do not think that you can book a visit just for a laugh. According to Sotheby’s International Realty, who has listed the house: “Interested parties must provide proof of funds for in-person viewing of property and sign an NDA for release of full property financials”.

Happy Halloween!
