“Buffalo Bill” Home From ‘Silence of The Lambs’ Goes On Sale
The house that was used for scenes featuring crazy Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), from the 1991 horror flick Silence of The Lambs, went on sale on Sunday.
‘Silence of The Lambs’ Buffalo Bill Home Is On Sale
The Silence of The Lambs home, located in Fayette County, Penn., is now on sale according to Realtor.com, and the asking price is $300,000.
The realtor describes the house as a “standout” Victorian built in 1910, the home comes complete with a wraparound veranda and oak-paneled walls.
The home has three floors, three bedrooms, one full bath, a “winter parlor” and a pool house made from a caboose.
However, the house does not come with the basement torture chamber where Levine’s character kept the senator’s daughter (Brooke Smith), since that iconic scene was filmed on a sound-stage.
Barbara Lloyd, the owner of the home, explained that she and her husband were eating dinner one night, when a movie producer knocked on their door and asked to see the house.
“They were looking for a home in which you entered the front door and had a straight line through,” Lloyd told the Pittsburgh Tribune Review.
“They wanted it to look like a spider web, with Buffalo Bill drawing Jodie Foster into the foyer, into the kitchen, then into the basement,” Lloyd added.
Lloyd and her husband, Scott, bought the home in 1976 and were married in the foyer in 1977.
Dianne Wilk, the realtor, believes the house’s movie connection will create interest in possibly turning it into a themed bed-and-breakfast.
“People love to be scared,” Wilk said. “I could see somebody doing something fun with this.”
