Real estate deal of the day: Buffalo Bill's house (from Silence of the Lambs) for $300,000


Home for sale, dungeon not included.

The owners of a Fayette County (PA) house that appeared in the 1991 thriller “The Silence of the Lambs” are looking to sell.

Scott and Barbara Lloyd's three-story Victorian near Perryopolis was the home of a serial killer nicknamed Buffalo Bill in the Academy Award-winning film.

The couple, both 63, put the house up for sale Sunday. The asking price is $300,000.

The Lloyds' foyer and dining room appeared in the movie. But there is no pit dungeon in the basement, as in the film. That was filmed on a sound stage, Scott Lloyd said.

The three-story Victorian depicted in the film is spooky and moth-ridden, with a dungeon where Buffalo Bill keeps the young women he abducts and harvests moths to place in the throats of his dead victims.

In real life, the house is bright and cheery with flowery wallpaper and a swimming pool with an old train caboose serving as a pool house.

Here's the clip of Jodie Foster (as Clarice Starling) entering the hose:
