PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The house in Fayette County, where the famous film “The Silence of the Lambs” was filmed, has a new owner.
The house on 8 Circle Street in Perryopolis was Buffalo Bill’s home in the legendary film.
The agent who sold the home says they received six offers within two weeks of the sale, and some of the offers are from non-state movie fans.
The sale comes just a few days before the debut of the new CBS show “Clarice”.
“We’re very excited about what the buyers have planned for the home, and we can’t wait to give you the details later this week,” says Realtor Eileen Allan.
The home was listed for sale for $ 298,500.
The listing says the home sits on 1.76 acres near the Yough River and the 110-year-old home still retains many of its original features such as hardwood floors, woodwork, and wallpaper.
The home also has a rear swimming pool and a detached three car garage.
The house was already sold in summer 2016. At that time, PETA showed interest in the house and wanted to turn it into an empathy museum where visitors could wear the skins of abused animals.
“Stay tuned movie buffs, you’ll love what’s slated for the home,” said Realtor Eileen Allan.
