Haunted MansionIf you’ve always wanted to move into the Haunted Mansion at Disney, here’s your chance. Theme Park Connection, the theme-park memorabilia reseller in Winter Garden, FL is selling its largest piece of Disneyana ever: a 10,000-square-foot home constructed to look just like the Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland.
The seven-bedroom, six-bathroom house is in a gated community in Duluth, Ga., more than 2,000 miles away from the original in Anaheim, California. Owner and designer Mark Hurt, a contractor, had the home built in 1996.
“He got permission from someone at Disney over at Disneyland to actually walk the attraction outside and measure it to get the exact detail of the house,” said Marc Pianko, owner of Theme Park Connection. A replica plaque at the entrance gate even reads “The Haunted Mansion.”
The goal was to re-create the attraction’s exterior, a Southern-style structure with columns, as might be found in New Orleans. (By contrast, the Haunted Mansion at Magic Kingdom represents an older, gothic style.) The interior of Hurt’s house is contemporary and less themed, except for one bathroom that’s home to a variation of the “hitchhiking ghost” scene of the Haunted Mansion attraction. Hurt has lived in the home with his wife and son, and he said there is no evidence that the structure is truly haunted.
Asking price for the home is $873,000.
“We researched it, and this is the only house in the world where someone actually spent the money to model it after a Disney attraction,” Pianko said.
The sales arrangement was made after Hurt became a customer of Theme Park Connection. “It was a perfect match for both of us,” Pianko said. His 8,000-square-foot warehouse, open to the public, holds an array of collectibles from Walt Disney World and other theme parks, ranging from souvenir buttons to cast-member costumes to stage props to ride vehicles. Hurt is selling the home, Pianko said, because he’s moving on to other projects, including a home in Hawaii fashioned after Disney’s Grand Californian resort.
No tours are available of the Georgia house. Only real estate agents and prequalified buyers will be able to make appointments to see the home.

It may not look as haunted as the Haunted Mansion at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom but it still sure would be cool to own!

    The Disneyland Haunted Mansion building is, actually, itself a nearly identical replica of the Shipley-Lydecker Mansion of Baltimore Maryland which was built in 1804 but torn down in the 60s. You can look up photos of the mansion.
