Amityville Horror House

Some homes have a history, but few are as well-known or horrifying as the Amityville Horror House ($1.15 million). Formerly listed as 112 Ocean Ave., this gorgeous Dutch Colonial was the site where Ronald DeFeo Jr. brutally killed six family members as they slept in 1974. Hauntings reported by later owners led to the bestselling 1977 book The Amityville Horror ($8) and the subsequent movie series. Features include a finished basement, large deck with views of the Amityville River, a renovated boat house, a central stereo system, and the chance for some supernatural houseguests.

  • Tumbleweed Tiny Houses

    When most people think of tiny houses, they think of the quaint, smallish-homes one finds in older neighborhoods, built back before the rise of the McMansion. But Tumbleweed Tiny Houses ($39,000 and up) make those homes looks like mansions in their own right. Ranging from 65 to 130 sq. ft. — plans for "Small" houses ranging from 251 to 774 sq. ft. are also available — these tiny homes are built with a goal of minimal environmental impact and maximum use of space, and since they sit on wheels, arriving pre-assembled, no building permit is required. Perfect for a backyard shack, rustic weekend getaway, or the modern nomad.

  • Ben Rose Home

    Reverse your own odometer in this architectural pop culture gem. The 5,300 sq ft glass-and-steel Ben Rose Home ($2,300,000), and more specifically the matching detached garage, is the site where Cameron gives an unexpected F-U to his dad in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Designed by architects A. James Speyer and David Haid, and once owned by photographer Ben Rose, the house was built in 1953 and is located in Highland Park, Illinois. Vast ravines in rear, but 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California not included. [Thanks, Scott]
