Every star on real television programs, not reality shows, expects to have a little makeover for the part. The star of “American Horror Story” not only had a little makeover, it was a huge makeover. Of course, in this case, we’re not talking about Dylan McDermott or Connie Britton, we’re talking about the spooky, but quite stately mansion that keeps the haunting spirits alive. (Of course, it’s nothing like the quick change the housekeeper undergoes when viewed by a male or female.)
The listing photos of this once $4.5 million dollar mansion is quite different from the house on the program where most of us would dread living. The exterior, for starts, is a bright pink-red brick with the same clean white stone framing around the entry way and windows. However, there are no boarded windows, bent wrought iron gate or “Little Shop of Horrors” foliage growing everywhere. It’s clean and pristine.
The interior had quite a makeover too. While the 1970’s hallway was in great disrepair and the renovated one, much better, the real hallway has no creepiness about it and is quite pristine and inviting. My best guess on the 1970’s look is that it took the aid of some computer generated destruction, rather than a real crew decimating the premises.
Word has it they shot the original pilot on location at this home but the crew then replicated the look of the interior in the studio for the rest of the series. The crew didn’t replicate the kitchen and it’s entirely different from that of the mansion.
The mansion has an abundance of Tiffany fixtures, stained glassed windows and display cases. In fact, it even has a Tiffany glass door. It also has its own website, but the price went up since the filming of “American Horror Story.” If you go to the site, your tab at the top reads, “FOR SALE: $17,000,000.” Even though the price tag increased, one of the benefits of being famous, let’s hope the house doesn’t turn into a diva.
