Hot Homes: Austin real estate for the macabre clientele


In honor of Halloween’s fast approach, we did a little house-hunting with a particular type of homeowner in mind.

Check out these brooding, funky, or downright dignified homes that we think clients from Dracula to Edgar Allan Poe would fawn over. (If anyone has an extra $2-$5 million they’re interested in handing out in lieu of Halloween candy this year, we wouldn’t mind purchasing them, either.)

While the entirety of this home emits moody vibes, thanks to dark appliances and trim throughout, it’s the master bathroom that we think Dracula would really love: A deep black soaking tub, dark grey walls, and a corner enclosure shower that’s just as secluded (but far more spacious) than his coffin. The mother-in-law floorplan doesn’t hurt either — it’s the perfect place for Jonathan Parker to stay.

“Wuthering Heights’” Heathcliff, master of the brood, will love the fenced-in yard ensuring privacy, along with the grey kitchen cabinetry and dark-yet-exquisite exterior. The his-and-hers vanities would get plenty of use from Heathcliff and Catherine’s ghost, we’re sure. We can picture him now, pensive as ever while wandering the sprawling front yard.

A home this unique deserves inhabitants equally as kooky, which is why it makes the perfect home for The Addams Family. Spanning 11.5 acres with six bedrooms, the home’s size is ideal for Morticia, Gomez, et al. Its unique features, like a guest house designed around a shipping container, just make sense for the family — after all, “their house is a museum.”

It’s giving “Cask of Amontillado” in all the right ways. Nevermore will Poe seek a space of solace for writing; the executive office space in the wing of the home will do just fine. We imagine him spending his days in the luxurious outdoor patio space, looking through the arches and across the pool in search of the raven.
