“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” created by Joss Whedon, ran for seven seasons and 144 episodes and became one of the best examples of genre television of the 1990s. Though there is no canonical connection between “Buffy” and “AHS,” some fans of both shows may have experienced some serious déjà vu. In the Season 4 Halloween episode of “Buffy,” titled “Fear, Itself,” the sprawling six-bedroom mansion exterior is used as the Alpha Delta fraternity house. The episode centers around Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), who is still recovering from some relationship issues with Parker (Adam Kaufman). In order to get her mind off things, they take her to a Halloween party held at the Alpha Delta frat house. However, everything is not hassle-free (this is a “Buffy” episode after all), as a demon called Gachnar is accidentally summoned.
While it made an impression on “Buffy,” loyal “AHS” fans, however, will always associate it with the fan-favorite first season “Murder House.” Built in 1902 by Alfred Rosenheim (via Atlas Obscura), the mansion used on “AHS” and “Buffy” is located in Los Angeles in what is known as Billionaires Row. An addition was built onto the structure to further help the production crew as they worked on “Murder House.”
The house has been used in other productions such as “Bones,” “Law & Order: Special VIctims Unit,” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents.” If you want to own the iconic mansion, you will have to dig deep into your pockets, as it was recently put on the market for $7.8 million, according to Realty Today.
