Murder Island for sale with 6 Bed house 325k

Recommended Posts

Lighthouse caretaker went stir crazy 60 years ago and chopped up his colleague, whence it has been unmanned. Lighthouse excluded but 29 acres and six bed house included.

Guess if it all goes wrong, there must be a book and film rights in there, just pretend you have got possessed or haunted.

Reminds me of this Hammer House of Horror production where a couple unwittingly  buy a ''cheap'' semi during the housing price boom of 1979 only to discover the grisly past later. Estate agent scene  3 minutes 40 seconds in. ''House prices are ridiculous these days, especially for first time buyers''.....how ironic, if only he knew what was coming 38 years later.

The people who buy properties like this don't usually give a flying toss for its grisly history, and may even prefer it because of the potentially cheaper price. 

I lived in a house once that I later found out had a sort of unpleasant past, in the past couple of decades it had had two deaths in it. One a suicide by hanging, the other just a solitary alcoholic who died of liver cancer in bed and who wasn't found for another week. 

There no ghosts in that place that I could detect. It was just an ordinary Sydney suburban s*itheap. 

Years later I read about the guy who bought the house in Perugia, Italy where Meredith Kercher was murdered. He was aware but blithely indifferent to the history of the place as well, saying that he wasn't superstitious and liked the price and location.

Regardless of being superstitious, I do think some houses have an 'atmosphere'.  Ages ago Mr B and I looked at a house that ticked all the boxs on paper, but it felt unwelcoming and cold, and I don't mean the temperature.  

By contrast the houses bought by both daughters within the past few years were equally terribly dated and needed a lot of doing up, but they both had lovely warm atmospheres - you felt they'd been happy family homes.  And that was/is despite the wife of the vendor of one of them having died of a massive stroke in the bathroom, as we found out later from a neighbour.  

Some of the other houses I looked at with both of them just didn't have that same feel.

Seems quite appealing actually.  Though would probably be pretty expensive to get any repairs done, and transporting everything by boat would surely jack up prices.

Well indeed, I thought just the concept of owning your own island was worth the asking price.
