Amityville Horror House Being Bought

November 18, 2016

AMITYVILLE, N.Y. — The Long Island home that served as the inspiration for the book The Amityville Horror and the subsequent films of the same name is being bought.

Newsday reports the infamous 1927 Dutch Colonial on Amityville’s Ocean Avenue went into contract this week.

The property’s listing agent declined to discuss the terms of the sale. The home came on the market in June for $850,000.

The 5,000-square-foot home sits on a quarter-acre lot along the Amityville River. It boasts five bedrooms, 3 1/2 bathrooms, a boathouse and a slip.

The home has been restored and updated while retaining period details such as leaded glass and oak floors.

Before gaining fame with the release of the original movie in 1979, the house was where 23-year-old Ronald DeFeo Jr. murdered his parents and four younger siblings in 1974.
