Currently for sale, a beautiful and extensively remodeled 5,000-square-foot home with five bedrooms and three baths on the water in Long Island. Sounds like a lovely home, right? It is, until you realize that this waterfront gem is the same home that inspired the Amityville movies. The storied horror house on Ocean Avenue is back on the market and priced to sell for $850,000 which is down from the $1.15 million dollar asking price just a few years earlier.
The home is the location of the gruesome DeFeo murders where Ronald DeFeo got up in the middle of the night and brutally murdered his parents and four siblings with a rifle while they slept. The home was occupied just a year later by the Lutz family, until they were forced to leave because of rampant paranormal activity.
