I love these kind of stories! It’s fun to dream about owning an actual haunted house. Like, I live in an old NYC apartment (with a clawfoot bathtub!) and the only thing this place is haunted by is the chilling yowls of my bipolar cat. Anyway, if you have £375,000 to spare ($577,474 in US dollars) and are dying (ha!) to own a piece of haunted property, now’s your chance!
A manor house thought to be one of the UK’s most haunted properties is to be auctioned later this month. Security guards refuse to work alone at night at Wymering Manor in Portsmouth.
The property, believed to be the city’s oldest house, has a guide price of £375,000. The building is a 17th-century former vicarage, monastery and home, and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It has seen much-documented paranormal activity including children whispering and strange apparitions.
The reason why I chose to quote this particular article (out of all the other articles that talk about this house up for sale) is the fact that the author is a man named Martin Halfpenny. Teehee!! Crazy Brits with crazy names!!
