BUFFALO BILL’S SILENCE OF THE LAMBS HOUSE
The Silence of the Lambs house where psycho Buffalo Bill lived is for sale. Since the house went on the market it has made headlines with national news outlets like Good Morning America, CBS News, The Wall Street Journal, Buzz Feed and the list goes on and on. Grab your fava beans, a nice Chianti and take a look at what everyone is talking about.
This is how the real Silence of the Lamb House looks today.
The house is a 1910 Princess Anne style home. She looks good for being 105 years old.
“A near perfect expression of comfort with its wraparound veranda or its prominent staircase of paneled walls of oak, this home is a statement of taste and prosperity. The home is in beautiful condition, with all original moldings, doors, pocket doors, built ins, fireplaces with over mantles. All original glass door knobs, even the original skeleton keys.”
In 1977, homeowners Scott and Barbara Lloyd got married in the foyer.
The scene when Agent Sterling knocks on Jame Gumb’s door looking for clues about Buffalo Bill was shot on site. Don’t go inside the house is what I was thinking
A ‘winter parlor’ with working gas fireplace.
The Journal reports: “Scott and Barbara Lloyd lived here for 39 years.
The production crew took six weeks to turn it into the squalid home of Buffalo Bill. Then a film crew spent three days shooting in the foyer and dining room.”
Kristie Forsman of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices said the “Lloyd’s actually lived upstairs during the shoot, but not during filming.”
Unique octagon shaped hallway.
Master bedroom with walk-in closet.
“The cast and crew left a signed poster that is now framed and hangs in one of the bedrooms.”
“At the time of the filming, the homeowners were given a Silence of the Lambs book, autographed by Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme and Oscar-winning actress Jodie Foster. The homeowners have decided that the book stays with the Fayette County home when it is sold”
I did not expect this nice pool and whimsical caboose/pool house.
Waaaaaaaait, don’t go! Don’t scream “Get me outta here”yet.

But seriously, there is nothing scary about this lovely home that will likely sell in no time with all the national attention it’s getting in the news.
