That's Rather Creepy

"I just googled the address and everyone is saying it's a harem of horror," Nina Neivens says of the property, known as the Sultan's Palace, that she now owns. "I was totally shocked. I fell in love with this house the moment I saw it. I was really taken aback and worried that it would affect the property value, but I knew I wanted to own it." The story goes that the Gardette-LaPrete mansion, built it 1836, was rented out by a rich, young Turk who moved in with his harem and threw some pretty wild parties. Legend has it that a crazy mass slaying occurred and the bodies were discovered after blood was trickling out from under the door. Now split up into six apartments, two are up for grabs.
