Disney's Haunted Mansion Replica for Sale
Why wait in line at the "Happiest Place on Earth" for the Haunted Mansion when you can live in its replica?
Theme Park Connection, a company that specializes in selling rare Disney collectibles, has posted the 10,000-square-foot-home in Duluth, GA, for $873,000 on eBay.
The four-story, seven bedrooms, six bath mansion was custom-built to the dimensions and architectural structure of Disney’s ride attraction. Owner and designer Mark Hurt, who is also a Disney contractor, included a matching children’s playhouse, a hot tub, a two-story library, an elevator shaft, and in-law/nanny suite. Hurt even used the same foundry as Walt Disney to make the hand-welded iron railings of the balconies.
Although it’s a bit cheesy, one of the bathrooms is supposed to give that “haunted” effect. When the faucet turns on, the lights flicker and dim as a skeleton appears in the mirror, and the ride's music and voiceover echos on for a "spooky" time.
Watch the video below to see if the Disney-inspired house is worth the price tag:
