This dark abode will really grab the attention of history buffs, as it’s a near-perfect replica of the SALEM WITCH HOUSE.

The original all-black home belonged to Puritan Jonathan Corwin, and was at the centre of the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.

The more modern property, however, was built in 1984, and is based in Sandwich, Massachusetts, USA – around a two-and-a-half hour drive from the original.

Still, it features the likes of a black timber exterior, low ceilings of wooden beams, three peaked roofs, and a stone fireplace.

For 725,000USD (557,000GBP), the successful buyer will get more mod-cons than Corwin’s “Witch House”, as well as three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms – and a secret closet hidden behind a book.

Corwin’s home is the only structure that still stands in the town, according to its website, and is still part of public tours. 

From the winter of 1962 until May of the following year, 19 people were hanged for allegedly being witches, and overall more than 200 people were accused. 

Tori Harrison, the home’s listing agent of Sotheby’s International Realty, said: “I’ve had a lot of interest.

“I think it’s perfect for someone who’s looking for a unique property because there’s so much character.

“Everyone wants to see it because it’s so unique.”
