LOS ANGELES- MAY 25- The house from American Horror Story will be featured on the upcoming episode of Syfy’s Hollywood Treasure. American Horror Story developed a tremendous cult following during its premiere season and the whole series was centered around the house which is now going on the market.

Construction of the house began in 1904 and was completed in 1908. The Catholic Church added a chapel addition in 1954.  The house sits on approximately 3/4 an acre and is around 12,000 square feet. The home was built by renowned architect Alfred Rosenheim and is currently a designated historic monument.  The house will be going on the market for $12,000,000.00 and Joe and the staff of Profiles in History will help market the property around the world with Brad Downs of Rodeo Realty Inc. of Beverly Hills, California.
