In today’s world of boxy McMansions and cookie-cutter pre-fab homes, it can be hard to find a house with character.
That’s why I instantly fell in love when I saw this exquisite Victorian home. With its large bay windows, Mansard roof, and gingerbread trim, it has all the makings of a living dollhouse.
But when I saw how much it’s listed for, I was stunned. Why on earth would a 10-bedroom, 6,661-sq-ft home built in 1875 be so cheap?
So I started doing a little investigating — and what I found shocked me. This was clearly no ordinary historic home.
Just like this strange home from the same era, the S.K. Pierce mansion house contains a chilling secret, and it seems to have lowered its market value.
What do you think about this hair-raising house? Would you live here despite its haunting past?
In 1875, a wealthy chair manufacturer named Sylvester K. Pierce designed and built a magnificent Victorian home.
This beautiful Massachusetts home boasts 10 beds, 2.5 baths, 11-foot ceilings, marble fireplaces, and all-original windows, doorknobs, hinges, and floors.
So with all of those exquisite details, how could the owners possibly ask for just $329,000? That’s roughly the same price as an average 3-bedroom home!
As it turns out, this beautiful mansion is listed as one of the most haunted homes in all of New England.
Over the years, in the hands of many different owners, seven individual deaths have been documented in the house, including a strangled prostitute.
The house experiences so much paranormal activity, it’s been investigated by TV shows like Ghost Hunters,Ghost Adventures,My Ghost Story,10 Most Haunted Places in New England.
So who is it still roaming the halls of this gorgeous mansion?
Some say they’ve seen the figure of a busy servant girl; others, a little boy who stares longingly out the front window; to some, a sad woman has appeared.
