The house from H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Shunned House" is for sale


The home at 135 Benefit Street in Providence, Rhode Island, that's featured in H.P. Lovecraft's story "The Shunned House" is for sale.  And if you're looking for "a particular house on the eastern side of the street; a dingy, antiquated structure perched on the abruptly rising side-hill, with a great unkempt yard dating from a time when the region was partly open country" and you've got $925,000, it could be yours. 

The house had a colorful history even before Lovecraft wrote about it, none of which is mentioned in the real estate listing however.  Aside from a giant monster buried in the basement (which can, admittedly, be killed with acid), it has four bedrooms, a koi pond and a library.

Historical Note: Although 135 Benefit Street is featured in "The Shunned House" it was actually a house in Elizabeth, N.J., that inspired Lovecraft to write the story.

  1. I wish I had that kind of money, but unfortunately I don't. I hope it goes to someone aware of its relevance, though.

  4. I'm surprised Stephen King hasn't bought the house. I wonder if he know it's for sale.

  5. Somehow, I didn't picture it as being a yellow house.
