Four spookiest homes listed for sale
As Halloween 2018 approaches we’re in the mood for something a little different so we’ve rounded up some of the spookiest properties on Rightmove – from haunted houses to beautiful homes close to sites of paranormal ‘interest’.
The most haunted house in Britain?
Known locally as ‘The Cage’, this two-bedroom cottage in Clacton-On-Sea in Essex has a seriously spooky history – having been used as a medieval witches’ prison hundreds of years ago.
The building served as a holding cell for infamous local ‘witch’, Ursula Kemp, who was tried and hanged for witchcraft back in 1582 and stayed at ‘The Cage’ ahead of her execution.
It was eventually converted into a residential building during the 1800’s, but the many strange occurrences since then have kept it in the headlines.
A beautiful home in a village loved by ghost hunters
This wonderful collection of converted farm buildings comes together to create a truly unique property over in the village of Pluckley.
But while the residence itself is incredible, it’s the village itself we’re interested in here – known to be a regular haunt of visiting ghost hunters hoping to catch a glimpse of the ‘red lady’ said to haunt the churchyard, or perhaps the ghostly monk sporadically spotted wandering the streets.
A quirky property just down the road from the infamous Pendle Hill
This unusual looking home has an eye-catching facade but again it’s the location that’s captured our attention – thanks to it being situated close to Pendle Hill, famous for being site of a series of witch trials over four hundred years ago.
The landmark still attracts sightseers and ghost hunters hoping to climb the hill around Halloween time and see if they can spy something a little mystical.
A dream property sitting in a truly mysterious village
This magnificent mansion enjoys a private road, an indoor swimming pool and even a hot tub, but it’s the village where this home is located that gives us a little bit of a chill on the back of our necks.
Prestbury is said to be home to a ghost monk known as the Black Abbot – who appears around religious holidays and walks the churchyard – while several other ghost stories also surround this unusual place.
