Farm that inspired the movie on sale for $ 1.2 million – deadline
Halloween is just around the corner, the house that inspired James Wan’s 2013 film Conspiracy is up for grabs.
Rhode Island real estate agent Mott & Chace Sotheby’s has put the Burrillville, RI property on the market for $ 1.2 million. The spooky 19th century house with three bedrooms and 1 1/2 bathrooms sits on eight acres of land, occupying 3,000 square feet.
Wan’s horror pic with Vera Farming and Patrick Wilson followed paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren, as they searched the house for demons and spirits in 1971. Since the film‘s debut in 2013, the house has grown in popularity, helping to launch a widespread franchise that is now called The universe of the conjuration.

In its list, Mott and Chace Sotheby’s were honest about what to expect from the house at 1677 Round Top Road. “To date, countless events have been reported,” they wrote. “The chilling stories, incidents and memories of residents and visitors to the property have been told in dozens of media productions, including books, films and television shows.”
Cory and Jennifer Heinzen were the most recent owners of the property, having purchased it in 2019. In an interview with NBC 10 WJAR, the former recounted strange occurrences like “doors opening and closing on their own, steps, bangs [and] disembodied voices.
“Last night we had a black haze in one of the rooms,” he added. “It looks like smoke. It will gather in an area, then it will move.
The Heinzen eventually opened the house to the public for tours and held events there often, allowing ghost hunters and others to tour the property.
Now that the house is up for sale again, will it become a permanent attraction? Or will a brave soul try to live with former resident Bathsheba Sherman, who owned the house in the 1800s? Some Conjuring fans may be looking to get their hands on this spooky farm, but anyone looking to do so must show proof of funds and sign an NDA to gain full access to the property, prior to purchase.
