What can you get the Disney collector that has everything? Well how about this mansion in Duluth, Georgia which is modeled on Disneyland’s very own Haunted Mansion.
This 4-storey building has 7 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and is more than 10,000 square feet. It was constructed to be as similar as possible to the Haunted Mansion in Disneyland – with an authentic attraction welcome gate plaque in the entrance, the unforgettable front 4 white pillars, 4 faux smoke stacks, flickering lights but any prospective buyers can rest assured, the property isn’t actually haunted.
Interested? Well we hope you have deep pockets, because this mansion on the market for a cool $873,000.
It has been listed on eBay and is being sold by the Theme Park Connection group who specialize in selling Disney and theme park memorabilia both online and in their gigantic warehouse in Winter Gardens, Florida. They claim to have the largest buyer and seller of Disney items in the entire world and this has got to be there most extravagant product yet!!
Theme Park Connection’s owner Marc Pianko said: “We are used to selling rare Disney items such as ride vehicles, attraction props and signs, along with a warehouse full of unique Disney items…This one is beyond anyone’s wildest dream. Can you imagine the Halloween parties you could have here?”
Yup, it does look like an absolutely superb place for a Halloween party, but then I suppose if you have enough cash in your bank account to splash out on a $873,000 house, you could probably afford to hire Freddy Kruger, Jason, John Kramer, Leatherface and every other horror movie villain your heart desired to come round to your house and scare the living beejesus out of your guests – that would be a pretty awesome Halloween party too I reckon.
Anyway, back to the Haunted Mansion replica, it is owned and was designed by Mark Hurt, a Disney contractor who partnered with Theme Park Connections to sell the property because he wants to move on to a more ambitious project – he is working on a resort themed house modeled on Disney’s Grand Californian! He actually lived at the mansion with his family for many years before deciding to sell.
Hurt has worked on numerous Disney projects and will continue to do so, he lovingly refers to Walt Disney as the mentor that he never met.
