Here’s your chance to own a piece of cinematic history. The three-story Princess Anne Victorian home owned by the skin-wearing serial killer Buffalo Bill, aka Jame Gumb, in the academy award winning movie Silence of the Lambs is up for sale again.
The house was last listed in 2015, after long time residents Scott and Barbara Lloyd decided to put it on the market. According to reports they had difficulty in actually selling the home. The home which had been originally listed at $300,000, dropped as low as $195,000 before it actually sold. Now just five years later the house is back on the market.
While in the film the location of the home is set in Belvedere, Ohio. In reality the home is actually located on 8 Circle Street in Perryopolis, Pennsylvania. According to the listing from Eileen Allan and Shannon Assad of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, the home sits on nearly two acres of land and comes with a large three car garage. The inside of the home is reported to have original hardwood floors, woodwork, light fixtures, pocket doors, fireplaces and wallpaper all in pristine condition, dating back to 1910 when the home was built. The price tag this time around is currently set at $298,500.
Before you decide to start breaking open your piggy bank to scrounge up the funds to purchase this home, know that like most Hollywood films the exterior and limited interior shots involving Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) and Jame Gumb (Ted Levine) were actually shot in the home. All scenes involving the basement of the home where filmed on a set. So unfortunately all you fans of the film will be disappointed to know that the home does not actually have a well in the basement.
Below is the guided virtual tour of the house from Eileen Allan and Shannon Assad of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.
