New Jersey home seen in ‘The Amityville Horror’ sells for $1.5M
The New Jersey home seen in the 1979 film “The Amityville Horror” has found a buyer. Located in Toms River in Ocean County, the waterfront property at 18 Brooks Road was used as a stand-in in the horror movie for the real-life “haunted” house on Long Island. After first listing for $1.7 million this past September, the four-bedroom home recently closed for $1.46 million.
The riverfront home was built in 1920 and measures nearly 3,900 square feet with four bedrooms and five baths. When filming the horror movie in 1979, “Amityville Horror” producers chose 18 Brooks Road to represent the Long Island home where paranormal activity was reported following a gruesome murder.
The Long Island home at 108 Ocean Avenue last sold in March 2017 for $605,000 as 6sqft previously reported.
