Charles Manson murder home where his followers killed couple is sold for $1.8million

THE LOS Angeles home where the Manson Family murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca that had languished for months on the real estate market has secured a buyer who paid below the $2.2million asking price.

The 3301 Waverly Drive property in the Los Feliz neighborhood, is a 1,655-square-foot, two-bedroom two-bath home that was once a notorious homicide scene more than a half-century ago, was snatched up for $1,875,000.

The Redfin listing confirmed: “This home sold yesterday."

The Los Feliz home where Charles Manson’s followers savagely tortured and murdered Leno and Rosemary LaBianca back in 1969 was offloaded by “Ghost Adventures” star Zak Bagans to a mystery buyer, TMZ reports. <<>>

Travel Channel Ghost Adventures star Zak Bagans purchased the home last year for $1.98million, reportedly with a plan to shoot a film project there.

However, Bagans scratched the production after determining the troubled history of the home should be laid to rest and out of respect for the LaBianca family, according to TMZ.

The Manson family murders caused hysteria to grip Los Angeles and prompted Hollywood elites to seek protection or even hideouts. 

The notorious cult leader died of natural causes back on Nov. 19, 2017, at a hospital near California State Prison in Corcoran, California where he was serving a life sentence for the mass murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others.

He was 83.

The original sticker price was $2.2million when it listed last October.

The Redfin description of 3311 Waverly Drive didn’t shy away from the property’s pedigree; even embracing investors or fans of history to take on the spread to flip as a profit. 

“Attention builders/developers/flippers/history buffs and those looking [to] add their touches to reimagine one of LA’s most unique properties,” the Redfin description reads. 

“This is an ideal opportunity. Classic, 1920’s Los Feliz gated single story pool home with breathtaking, unobstructed front and back views and an infamous history.”

The 1920s gated single-story home “offers unparalleled privacy” while being surrounded by fruit trees and greenery.

The home rests on 31,000 square foot lot with a pool and “nestled in the prime location north of the Rowena Reservoir” and has unobscured views of Downtown Los Angeles, the Silver Lake hills and Griffith Park, the listing states. 

Manson gang members had the property on their radar after allegedly attending a party next door to the LaBianca house and decided at random to kill them as part of a scheme to inspire a race war.  

On August 8, 1969, the feared cult leader ordered four of his disciples - Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles "Tex" Watson - to the Beverly Hills address of shared by pregnant actress Sharon Tate and film director Roman Polanski with the command to “totally destroy everyone in it, as gruesome as you can.”

On the night Tate was killed she had three friends over for a dinner party: hairstylist Jay Sebring, Polanski’s friend Wojciech Frykowski and his partner, the coffee heiress Abigail Folger.

The Family members killed all of them that gruesome night.

The LaBiancas murders came less than 24 hours after the slayings of Tate and four others in Beverly Hills. 

The deadly gang - which also included Leslie Van Houten and Steve "Clem" Grogan - savagely tortured, murdered and mutilated wealthy LA couple Rosemary and Leno LaBianca.

They then used their blood as ink to write "Rise," "Death to Pigs," and "Healter Skelter," a misplaced reference to the Beatles song "Helter Skelter," on the walls and refrigerator door.

Manson and his accomplices were tried and convicted for the murders, apart from Kasabian who testified against them and played no direct part in the killings.

After his conviction, Manson was sentenced to death. 

But he was spared execution and sentenced to life in prison after the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional.
