Amityville Horror home for sale

This lovely five-bedroom home at 108 Ocean Avenue in Amityville, New York is now for sale for $1.15 million. Amityville Horror house (current)Who cares? Well, 108 Ocean Avenue used to be 112 Ocean Avenue, where Ronald DeFeo Jr. killed his family in 1974 and, several years later, the Lutz family were traumatized by things that go bump in the night. The original Amityville Horror address, and spooky windows, were changed by previous owners to keep away creep-seekers. The real estate listing refers to it as a “legendary home” but does not mention flies, blood streaming from the walls, or a demon pig named Jodie. From Newsday:

James Cromarty, 77, bought the house in 1977. By that point, a bank had foreclosed on the house from the Lutzes, who have since died. DeFeo is at the upstate Green Haven Correctional Facility, serving 25 years to life for the murders.”Nothing weird ever happened, except for people coming by because of the book and the movie,” said Cromarty, who lived a decade in the house.

Amityville Horror house (past)He and his wife, Barbara, sold the house in 1987 to Peter and Jeanne O’Neill. Reached Monday, Jeanne O’Neill said, “I loved it. It was a beautiful home.” They sold the house in 1997 for $310,000 to the current owner, which records identify as Brian Wilson.

“It’s one of the more beautifully redone houses in the neighborhood,” said listing agent Laura Zambratto of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty.
