Bela Lugosi’s Dead (but You Can Live in His House for $3 Million)

Dracula's Castle, Transylvania

Bela Lugosi’s mansion — where the actor lived from 1934-1937 — is on the market. For only $3million dollars, you can buy the Tudor-style Hollywood home, built by architect Frank W Green and complete with a ballroom-size living room with stone fireplace, a formal dining room with “banks of iron glass windows” (because why not), a library with its own entrance, a bright chef’s kitchen kitchen with Gaggenau appliances (presumably kitchen appliances for rich people but maybe they are torture devices; who knows!), three en-suite bedrooms, an expansive master suite with marble fireplace, a grand foyer with a skylight, gated courtyard entry, grassy yard, gardens and terrace with waterfalls, fountains, outdoor stone shower, in-ground spa, and a gym and wine cellar.

Past residents of the mansion include Kathy Bates from Misery and American Horror Story, which seems appropriate, and Jon Cryer from Two and a Half Men, which seems less so. Current residents may include the “earthbound spirit” of Bela Lugosi himself, discovered in the 1980s by famous psychic Sylvia Browne when she visited Lugosi’s home with a team of paranormal investigators. (You can read about her experiences in her 2011 book, Afterlives of the Rich and Famous — apparently Lugosi appeared in his Dracula cape and told her “You weren’t invited.”)

  1. Sylvia Browne was proven a fake! She told parents that their abducted daughter was dead. The mother committed suicide. Years later, the girl was found. Béla Lugosi told me he has never haunted that place with the abject remodeling and most hideous bathroom.

  2. Google says my commute would be 20 minutes if I lived there, so clearly fates need to align so I win the lottery or something…
