THE LOS Angeles home where the Manson Family murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca has finally been purchased after months on the market.
It was previously owned by actor and paranormal investigator Zak Bagans, who described it as a "beautiful place with a very dark history".
Who owns the Charles Manson house?
The 3301 Waverly Drive property in the Los Feliz neighborhood was snatched up for $1,875,000, a substantial discount on the $2.2million asking price.
The 1,655-square-foot, two-bedroom two-bath home was snatched up for $1,875,000.
It's Redfin listing read: "Attention builders/developers/flippers/history buffs and those looking [to] add their touches to reimagine one of LA’s most unique properties.
"This is an ideal opportunity. Classic, 1920’s Los Feliz gated single story pool home with breathtaking, unobstructed front and back views and an infamous history."
Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures star Zak Bagans purchased the home last year for $1.98million, reportedly with a plan to shoot a film project there.
But Bagans later scratched the production out of respect for the LaBianca family after deciding the troubled history of the home should be laid to rest.
After sitting on the market for almost nine months, the murder house was purchased by a mystery buyer who wishes to remain anonymous.
The Redfin listing simply confirmed: “This home sold," on June 15.
What happened at Charles Manson's house?
The Los Feliz home was once a notorious homicide scene more than a half-century ago.
Charles Manson’s followers savagely tortured and murdered LA grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in 1969, less than 24 hours after killing pregnant actress Sharon Tate and her three friends.
The gruesome gang had the property on their radar after allegedly attending a party next door to the LaBianca house and decided at random to kill them as part of a scheme to inspire a race war.
The Family Members – including Leslie Van Houten and Steve "Clem" Grogan – savagely tortured, murdered and mutilated the wealthy LA couple.
They then used their blood as ink to write "Rise," "Death to Pigs," and "Helter Skelter," a misplaced reference to the Beatles song "Helter Skelter," on the walls and refrigerator door.
Manson and his murderous clan were tried and convicted for the murders, seeing him sentenced to life in prison after being spared execution by the California Supreme Court.
The notorious cult leader died back in Nov. 19, 2017, at a hospital near California State Prison in Corcoran, California at age 83.
