BURRILLVILLE – Just two years after purchasing an allegedly haunted farmhouse on Round Top Road, owners Jennifer and Cory Heinzen have put the property back on the market – for more than double the price.
The house that inspired the 2013 hit horror film The Conjuring went up for sale on Thursday, Sept. 23, listed for $1.2 million.
The Heinzens, paranormal investigators from Maine, purchased the house in 2019 for $439,000 from former owner Norma Sutcliffe. In the years since, they’ve turned the legend surrounding the nearly 300-year-old structure into a lucrative enterprise, filming multiple movies and specials, and offering overnight stays at a cost of $125 per person.
Just recently, the couple began offering hour long day tours at a cost of $25 per person. And they announced that the overnight investigations were sold out through 2022.
The house was featured in Andrea Perron’s book House of Darkness, House of Light, in which she tells the story of her family’s experience living in the property, a farmhouse built in 1736 that she says was haunted. Paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren visited the house, and their experience was the subject of the movie, a supernatural horror filmed that spawned Warner Brothers Conjuring Universe franchise.
The listing for the 8.5 acre lot at 1677 Round Top Road, a three bedroom, single family home, makes no mention of its unique history.
The Heinzens did not immediately answer a call for comment from NRI NOW.
