'Silence of the Lambs' Home Finally Sells for $195,000

Remember the scene at the end of Silence of the Lambs when Jodie Foster’s character, Clarice Starling, is searching an old Victorian home for the killer, Buffalo Bill? That very house went up for sale near Perryopolis, Pennsylvania and finally sold.

Though originally listed for $300,000, the Lloyd family, who have owned the home since the 1970’s, sold the house last week for about $195,000, according to Inside Edition.

“The Lloyds felt that the home was special and that the movie may have improved it’s value,” said Dianne Wilk, the realtor who sold the home. However, they struggled to sell the home.

The exterior of the home still looks the same as it had in the 1991 movie, but the inside is drastically different. Fans of the film might remember that the walls of Bill’s home were painted a horrible green color. The Lloyds didn’t keep that color after the film crews left — or at least not all of it. One wall was saved for “posterity.”

The Lloyd family decided to sell the home after deciding to downsize to a smaller ranch style home when they retired.
