Antique Home in Spooky Salem
We're one week closer to Halloween, and we're continuing our quest to find cool homes for sale in America's most haunted cities. Last week, we showed you a historic Federal-style mansion on Charleston's haunted High Battery. This week, we're traveling up the East Coast to the Massachusetts city of Salem.
Think "Salem," and the words "Witch Trials" swiftly come to mind. Indeed, this infamous event has shaped the city and made it a popular tourist destination for those interested in all things ghostly. Several of the 19 "witches" who were put to death between 1692 and 1693 are now said to haunt Gallows Hills, where they were hanged, while others float about other places in town.
Though this circa 1819 Salem residence was built well after the Witch Trials, it's steeped in history nonetheless. Set in the heart of the McIntire Historic District, the home is surrounded by one of the greatest concentrations of notable pre-1900 domestic structures in the United States. Carefully restored and renovated, the home's highlights include a custom-designed kitchen, a butler's pantry, a handsome library and a new family room.
According to the listing, the lovely grounds were designed by a world-class landscape architect, and we don't doubt it. That lushly planted patio is so charming, we'd be willing to share it with a ghost or two.
