‘Vanderpump Rules’: Beau Clark Almost Proposed to Stassi Schroeder at ‘AHS’-Inspired ‘Murder House’
Beau Clark from Vanderpump Rules had even creepier plans when it came time to propose to Stassi Schroeder. Instead of the (creepy enough) graveyard proposal, he mulled over popping the question at an infamous Los Angeles “murder house” that Schroeder loves.
The home which is thought to be the inspiration behind American Horror Story‘s “Murder House” is located in Los Feliz and the true story behind the home almost mirrors the storyline during season 1 of the series.
Clark knows Schroeder loves all things creepy but had to pivot away from selecting the murder house for his marriage proposal because it is abandoned. “They gutted the whole thing,” he explains in the Vanderpump Rules After Show. He’s likely thrilled to get away with a proposal in a graveyard because the story of the house is nothing less than chilling.
Schroeder visited the home before with Katie Maloney-Schwartz
Schroeder offers some backstory to the home. “So there’s the Los Feliz murder house, look it up,” she says to a producer. “If you have not heard of it.” Clark adds that Schroeder has been talking about the home since he’s known her.
“Back in the 50s, this is dark, the dad bludgeoned his wife,” she says. “But his daughter was able to escape with her other siblings. And then he killed himself. He was a doctor, with a bunch of pills. And ever since then, no one has ever moved into it.” Clark looks on, seemingly stunned.
“So this house, no one ever took out their sh*t,” she continues. “Like I went eight years ago with Katie [Maloney-Schwartz] actually, in the middle of the night and peered into the windows. You still see all of their … It’s like a Hollywood story.”
Clark wants to be clear too, “Also to note, I would never have moved into that place. Ever. Ever.” Schroeder smiles slyly and takes a sip of her cocktail.
Someone actually bought the home (and promptly put it back on the market)
The home actually ended up attracting some owners, according to Curbed Los Angeles. After sitting unoccupied for decades, a brave owner purchased the home for a little under $2.3 million in 2016.
Likely excited to renovate the crumbling mansion, the new owner embarked upon making updates and renovations. However, in mid-construction, the owner has now put the home back on the market. The new owner first listed the home at $3.5 million. Permits have already been pulled and some work has been done. This includes the interior space being taken down to its studs. Plus flooring has already been stripped. Zillow recently reports a price reduction to $2,500,000.
So why did the new owner suddenly abandon the project and run? Was it the ghosts? While it may be unclear exactly why the Los Feliz owners want to sell, owners who purchased the physical property that was featured as the actual “murder house” during AHS season 1 are trying to sell now too. But their reason isn’t because of a haunting. Instead, they claimed to be unaware that their new home was featured on the series and it became a Hollywood tourist attraction, according to The Hollywood Reporter. In fact, people have tried to break into the home and owners claimed the home’s fame factor was never disclosed.
