The house is actually a super popular filming location, beginning way back with Charlie Chaplin’s silent movies and then the inevitable talkies. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dexter, Six Feet Under, The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, Angel, and loads more TV shows filmed episodes at this iconic location. It’s also a photographer’s paradise, used by Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Annie Leibovitz, Diane Arbus, David LaChapelle, Mario Testino and Terry Richardson, among many others.

I loved to see it just because I watch AHS season 1, but a little upsetting because someone lives there now and not able to explore it.

I just went by the other week. Still gorgeous but so sad to see it falling into disrepair. Would love to see some owners that want to repair n upkeep it move in.

how close can you get to the house to take a picture? I'm a big AHS fan and not a creepy stalker by the way. I'm just a 14 y/o and wanted to actually be close up to the house in a non-creepy sort of way
