Elegant Victorian Asking $144K is 'Slightly Haunted,' NBD


This house is a ways away from Philly, but the listing is worth a look. It's a beautiful, spacious Victorian with lots of character, and, according to the listing copy, ghosts. But, like, it's only "slightly haunted", no big deal.

Here's the broker's description of the paranormal activity:

Slightly haunted. Nothing serious, though. e.g. The sounds of phantom footsteps. A strange knocking sound followed by a very quiet (hardly noticeable, even) scream at 3:13am, maybe once a week. Twice a week, tops. And the occasional ghastly visage lurking behind you in the bathroom mirror. Even still, this occurs very rarely and only in the second floor bathroom. In addition to the second floor bathroom ghastly visage, this house also comes with a terrifying crawlspace and a secret room behind a bookshelf. "Large unfinished crawl space behind concealed door hidden in bedroom closet. Very strange area, but perfect for storage". Yes, very strange. Surely the inexplicable bedroom crawlspace has nothing to do with the haunting.
