Disney’s Haunted Mansion for sale

Want to move into a haunted mansion just in time for Halloween? For less than $1 million, you can.

A live-in replica of Disney's Haunted Mansion attraction is listed for sale in Duluth, Ga. for $873,000.  The 10,000-square-foot spooky house has four stories and seven bedrooms. The ghosts are not included in the deal -- except for the animated hitchhiking ghost scene in one of the home's six bathrooms.

The owner, Mark Hurt, is a designer and Disney contractor. He built the replica in 1996 in a gated community and lived there for 16 years with his wife and son.  The replica matches the exact architecture and every detail of one of Disney's most popular attractions.

"He actually measured the real Disney mansion to make sure it was exact," says Mark Pianko of Theme Park Connection, a Florida company that specializes in Disney collectibles. "He went through a lot of great details to make sure it was authentic." Theme Park partnered with the owner to market the home.

The house features a "Haunted Mansion" plaque at the front gate, a two-story library, an elevator and a surprise for guests as they enter the first-floor bathroom.

Elevator in house"When they start washing their hands, the lights start to flicker and a ghost appears in the mirror," Pianko says. "Mark says he would forget to tell guests about the bathroom and then he would hear screams and say, 'Oh, forgot to tell them.'"

Hurt says he is selling the house because he is working on his next project, a resort-themed house modeled after Disney's Grand Californian.

The Haunted Mansion has received 45 bids on its eBay listing, which expires Nov. 1. The offers have not met the seller's asking price yet.

The Adam's Family House or the Munsters House looked more like the Haunted Mansion

This is a replica of the haunted mansion. The out side looks like it but the inside is modern. It is not the same one used in the movie. That one was a designed set. This house is a modern version of that house. It is real but does not have the great wood interior that the movie had or the spooky feeling of the movie one. It is a copy on the outside with a modern inside. Jeesh people get a clue.

That looks nothing like the Haunted Mansion at Disney and the picture they are showing of the inside of the house looks contemporary and the Haunted Mansion is decorated really nice inside it's not sterile and plain looking like the picture posted of the inside.

If you go to e-bay, the pic of this house is in the ad. Looks as if to be an in-law suite or childs play house but it is part of the deal aswell!

I think the problem is the picture that is on this blog is not the picture of the house.

This is NOT a picture of the house. Why would you put a picture of the house that is NOT the house?

This house looks exactly like the haunted mansion! Super spooky! I have that same mirror in my house but I just stand behind it and watch people pee.

Thanks for the cheesy stock photo that has nothing to do with anything.
