The house where fictional serial killer Buffalo Bill lived in the 1991 Oscar winning movie The Silence of the Lambs has been on the market since last summer when it was listed for $300,000. The owners, Scott & Barbara Lloyd, have just reduced the price on the three-story Victorian style home near Perryopolis, PA, which is about an hours drive from Pittsburgh, to $250,000. Even though the house was the second most clicked home on Realtor.com last year, it hasn’t sold possibly because of it’s location. OR the fact that there is only ONE bathroom for all four bedrooms and three stories of the the house! Erik Gunther, a senior editor and expert on unique homes for Realtor.com said:
Even though it’s got notoriety, location still is a big deal. The fact that a home gets a ton of publicity doesn’t necessarily add up to a quick sale. Just because I want to gawk at something doesn’t mean I want to buy it.
The foyer (where the Lloyd’s were married in 1977) and the dining room were seen in the film, but there is no creepy dungeon with a well to keep your victims just where you want them in the home.
