Halloween is for really famous haunted mansions….right next door to us!

Did you know that PropertyMinder headquarters are less than a mile away from one of the most famous haunted houses (well, mansions) in the United States?

The Winchester Mystery House.

There are doors, stairways, and windows placed in random areas. Some of the doors open on to blank walls, and some of the stairs go to the ceiling. Many believe the mansion is haunted due to its eerie and frightening past.

One thing is for sure, this is no cheap piece of real estate. Sarah Winchester, the owner of the mansion, used her fortune to continue uninterrupted, round-the-clock construction on the house for 36 consecutive years because she believed it would appease the spirits who had cursed her family. The cost for the constant building has been estimated at about $5.5 million (equivalent to over $75 million in 2012).
