The three-story Queen Anne Victorian house sits on 1.7 acres of land and still has many of the architectural features it had during the 1991 film, including its recognizable doorway, foyer, dining room, kitchen and hallway that led to Buffalo Bill’s general.
Other notable features of the home include original hardwood floors, woodwork, pocket doors, light fixtures and fireplaces while the exterior has a wraparound porch, gazebo, fountain and rose garden.
The property’s new owner, Chris Rowan, previously told Fox News he aims to make Buffalo Bill’s House a “boutique accommodation” that offers a “cinematic experience” for horror film lovers.
He has been recreating sets from the Academy Award-winning film and is making a replica of the basement well where the finale takes place between FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) and Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine).
