‘Silence of the Lambs’ house for sale just in time for Halloween

“I’m having an old friend for dinner.”

It’s the ultimate real estate listing for fans of creepy movie houses — the home of Buffalo Bill from the 1991 hit film “Silence of the Lambs.”

The 140-year-old house has plenty of other history, too. Its garage served as the general store, post office and train station in 1880 in its Pennsylvania town.

“This 3-story Princess Anne Victorian located in Perryopolis was the home of Buffalo Bill in the film ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and is situated on 1.76 acres of level land along the Youghiogheny River,” the listing reads. “Original hardwood floors, woodwork, light fixtures, pocket doors, fireplaces and wallpaper are in pristine condition, dating back to 1910 when the home was built. Recent improvements include reflooring the wrap-around porch and gazebo, a rose bed garden and fountain were added at the front, refinished hardwood floors in attic, new hot water tank, well pump and UV filter. “

The house is listed for $298,500.

Fans will recognize the original foyer details that were seen in the movie when Clarice confronts Buffalo Bill. The basement, though creepy in it’s own right, does not actually feature a well.

For those not in the market for a house but in the mood for a road trip, the house is located at 8 Circle Street in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh.
