Having your property featured in a hit movie or a TV show usually means bank. Carrie Bradshaw's Manhattan pad was sold for close to $10 million back in 2012 — and for $20,000 higher than the asking price. The owners of Walter White's house get, well, lots of free pizza. Yet, such is not the case for the Alfred F. Rosenheim Mansion, the season 1 backdrop for the popular American Horror Story series.

The spooky dwelling finally sold for $3.2 million, taking a drastic cut from the initial asking price of $17 million. The home dates back to 1908 and is no doubt a Hollywood favorite, with location credits in Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Dexter. The Tudor-style abode features a billiard room, five fireplaces and stained-glass windows throughout. It probably would have sold like hotcakes had it not racked up so much street cred in the "You're Going To Die Here" department.

Click through for a last look inside the "Murder House" — if only to honor the creepiest house in recent TV memory.

The real exterior is much less spooky than the TV depiction.

Those Tiffany stained-glass doors belong in a museum — preferably one people actually visit because they don't fear that they'll be murdered there.

Bonus points if that's a clawfoot tub.

Oil paintings line the carpeted staircase — classy stuff, "Murder House!"
