Zak Bagans Buys Charles Manson Murder House!

According to a TMZ post, it looks like dark and macabe collector Zak Bagans from Travel Channels’ Ghost Adventures has purchased the Murder House associated with Charles Manson.

A quote from the TMZ page:

The house was owned by by Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, the couple brutally murdered by Manson family members. Rosemary was stabbed 41 times … Leno 12 times. The August, 1969 murders came the day after Manson Family members slaughtered Sharon Tate and 4 others. The murders sent shock waves through Los Angeles like never seen before.

We’re told Zak jumped when he heard the home was up for sale for $1.98 million. He literally ran to check out the house, and made a close-to-asking offer. It’ll close in early Sept.  He was smart to jump, because the realtor tells us there were multiple backup offers.

The news comes the day before the official opening of the Quentin Tarantino film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” starring Brad Pitt and Leo DiCaprio. The sale will close JUST after the 50 year anniversary of the murders. The Manson’s crime is part of the story line in this new movie.

The Spanish-style home was built in 1922 and has had several upgrades under different owners in the intervening years. Situated high on a steep slope, the 1,600-square-foot home has privacy from the street, yet is close to the popular Griffiths Park and Glendale restaurant and retail centers. The “Hollywood” sign is around the corner, according to Giambalvo.

“The grade level of the house is probably equal to or greater than the height of a two-story home,” said Giambalvo. “Even when you’re standing at the gate you can hardly see the house. It has that grandeur feeling to it [as] you go up the driveway.”

Zak tells TMZ, as a collector of dark culture, this is the holy grail. It was such a gruesome scene … after committing the murders, the Family members showered at the home before leaving.

Zak says almost everything inside is original, and that’s one of the main things that attracted him.

The house is 1,600 square feet and has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It also has explosive city views.

Zak won’t say what he plans to do with the house, but says it has a storied history beyond just the Manson murders. He says dogs have mysteriously disappeared from the property and occupants have been freaked out over what he says is paranormal activity.

Several of Manson’s cult members murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca in the house in Los Angeles’s Los Feliz section in August 1969, the night after killing actress Sharon Tate and four others at her Los Angeles home. Why the LaBiancas were targeted has never been discovered. Manson initially was sentenced to death for the murders but resentenced in 1977 to life in prison after California abolished its death penalty. He died in 2017 of natural causes.

The “wedding style” ceiling in several of the main living rooms include concentric circles of stucco in shaded gradients, according to Giambalvo. The dining area has an ornate chandelier and sliding-glass door to the outside.

A modern kitchen accommodates a breakfast table and movable island.

The backyard has a pool, hot tub and free-standing sauna. A covered patio near the pool is directly off the kitchen.

Several mature fruit and avocado trees not only provide fruit when in season but also add to the privacy.

Louver-style vents in the attic help circulate the air so the home stays cool, even without the use of air conditioning.

A two-car garage is behind the property.

    1600 square feet?
    Are you going to be able to take a nice hot quiet shower and some rest there with all the activities?

    He will be dead before he takes possession of it, anyway. It’s haunted beyond normal. I would not own it, even if it was given to me for free. Just saying.
