You can hang out with Bela Lugosi for just $3 million!
Do you believe in ghosts? If you do, then perhaps you buy into the stories that late horror legend Bela Lugosi haunts the Los Angeles home he once lived in. Famous psychic Sylvia Browne once visited the home, which rests under the iconic Hollywood sign, and reported seeing the spirit of the long-dead Lugosi roaming the halls in his Dracula cape; now there’s a mental image for ya!
Lugosi lived in the Beachwood Canyon home between 1934 and 1937, which means he purchased it shortly after the release of Universal’s Dracula. As reported by Realtor.com, the remodeled mansion, which was built in 1930 and is referred to as Westshire Manor, Castle La Paloma, or the Bela Lugosi House, went up for sale this week with an asking price of $3 million.
