    Default How much would a spooky mansion cost?

    If I were going to look at a serious attempt to own something akin to the beautiful spooky-esque mansions you see in movies. How much would that sort of structure cost me? What would make the property complete?

    Must haves:
    At least 3 secret tunneling systems throughout and under the house and panic room
    Secret underground vault
    Huge fireplace
    A conservatory of sorts.. the whole green-house looking room.
    Observation deck
    spiral staircase
    A wonderful wrought iron fence around the establishment
    Huge entry doors.

    Absolutely nothing. From what I've learned through horror movies/cartoons, all you have to do is wait for your rich relative to die/kill him and you'll get a spooky mansion through inheritance.

    Millions of dollars.

    Did you see the movie "The Haunting?"
    It has an amazing victorian mansion.

    I dunno, but if you get one I demand that you throw wild, evil parties, rumored to be frequented by the devil himself, replete with debauchery and sin.

    And invite me.

    ^ Done, and done. And yes, I LOVED the fireplace in The Haunting.

    I wouldn't need one nearly as big as all that. >.> but evil accessories are a must.

    Wait a minute--Was this inspired by your trip to Disney World?

    Probably need lots of trees nearby so that on windy nights, the leaves blow menacingly across the driveway.

    I've always wanted one of those too, since I was a kid. I love Victorian and Queen Anne houses. The expense isn't so much in finding or buying one, but in restoring and heating the dang thing.

    I completely understand the compulsion. Totally.

    Oh me too. Most definitely. I don't think I'd have one nearly as big as in the movies.. but with the ILLUSION of being big.. like having a huge entryway or something with a spiral staircase ala Casper style.

    If I ever get well off enough to build my own home on my property, you better believe I will design it like this. And you better believe I'll throw MBTI halloween parties
