Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty proudly brings 1677 Round Top Road to market. Listed at $1,200,000, the c.1826 home that inspired the horror franchise “The Conjuring” is one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States. The property is represented by The Blackstone Team of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

Legend has it, the home is haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who lived in the house in the 1800’s. To this day, countless happenings have been reported. The chilling stories, incidents, and recollections of residents and visitors of the property have been told in dozens of media productions including books, movies, and television shows.

The critically acclaimed original movie was based on accounts taken from inhabitants of this fourteen-room farmhouse. Many qualified paranormal researchers have been invited into the home – most famously Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded the oldest ghost hunting team in New England. In the 1970’s, the Warrens were hired to rid the home of its evil. They have confirmed that the events depicted in “The Conjuring” franchise did transpire.

Currently, the full functioning restored farmhouse in Harrisville is rented overnight to paranormal researchers, ghost hunters, and folks of the like. Day events, tours, and live streams comprise the numerous ways that the sellers have created an income-producing property. The true potential though is awaiting the next caretakers.
