Would you want to live in a house that was once the site of an appalling crime? That was the question posed by the listing of 3311 Waverly Drive, Los Angeles, in July 2019. It was quickly answered, too, as a buyer snapped up the infamous abode within weeks of it hitting the market – and five decades after the Manson Family paid the house a fatal visit.

Yes, while the property has been described as a “quintessential LA home,” few typical Los Angeles houses share the dark history of 3311 Waverly Drive. Famously, in August 1969 its residents were brutally slayed by members of Charles Manson’s cult. And while 3311 Waverly Drive is still standing 50 years on from those callous killings, its owners are finally moving on.
