Are you interested in a "Legendary Amityville Home" that's a "Pristine,Charming 3-Story, Waterfront Dutch Colonial Commanding Beautiful Views Of Amityville River"? Would you be more interested if you knew it was the home that inspired the "Amityville Horror" book and films? The real estate agent tells Newsday, "It's one of the more beautifully redone houses in the neighborhood."
The home gained its notoriety when Ronald DeFeos killed six family members while they were sleeping in 1974 and subsequent owners George and Kathleen Lutz claimed to be haunted for 28 days, which were detailed in the book "The Amityville Horror" (on the cover: "This book will scare the hell out of you"—Kansas City Star). However, James Cromarty, who lived in the house after the Lutzes were foreclosed upon, "Nothing weird ever happened, except for people coming by because of the book and the movie."
Another broker, whose brother used to own the property, also said, "It's a gorgeous, big center hall Colonial with a finished basement," and there's "nothing spooky about it." Well, it definitely is pretty—check out the listing.
