The Tate Murder House

Price: $1,999,000 (listed); $1,600,000 (sold)

Location: 10050 Cielo Drive, Los Angeles, California

This beautiful, 4,600-square-foot abode that once hosted stars of stage and screen was sold to investor John Prell in 1988 after just two weeks on the market. Overlooking scenic Benedict Canyon, the same house also was the scene of the tragic 1969 slaying of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four guests by Manson family members. Tate's husband at the time, director Roman Polanski, was later rumored to have offered $1.5 million to bulldoze the house, the Los Angeles Times reports. The final resident of the house, before it was bulldozed and its address changed to 10066 Cielo Drive, was Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. And here's a frightening fact: Reznor installed a recording studio inside that he dubbed "Pig"—a reference to the murderers scrawling "Pig" in blood on the door, according to Entertainment Weekly.
