Mansions have always been a wish of all of us when we see them in movies. Their huge bedrooms, bathrooms, balconies, acres of landscape, luxuries, and ballrooms have always attracted people to buy them.
Believe it or not, there are some mansions that no one wants to buy even for the lowest price possible. Here is the list of them and the reasons why nobody wants them.
THE $10 MANSION

This historic home in New Jersey costs only $10! At 4,000 square feet in size, with 6 bedrooms and three bathrooms. But there is a thing, you do not just need to move into it but to move it!
This mansion was designed by a great architect Dudley S. Van Antwerp and any of his work at any price would be a catch for anyone who is looking to invest in property. But it’s not a case with this one, because there is an issue with it. The town’s Planning Board approved a subdivision for the land the home is on, so as a condition of owning this house, you must pick it up and move to a new location. Crazy, right?
BLOOD ON THE WALLS

This is a gorgeous Victorian-style mansion with five bedrooms, a garden with two acres and boasting beautiful architecture. The amazing catch, you will agree. But, once you find out what happened here you won’t find it that amazing.
The major reason no one wants to buy this house is horrible murder. Lawyer Christopher Lumsden knifed his wife over 30 times in this mansion. The house was left to collapse into disarray which makes it less desirable than it already was.
THE NEW JERSEY ‘WATCHER’ HOME

This ancient mansion in New Jersey has 6 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 4 fireplaces. It was bought for $1.5 million USD in the past decade but despite renovating and modernizing it, the buyers never moved in.
The main reason is letters sent by an anonymous person claiming to be the house's “watcher” as his ancestors who were hired as caretakers in the 20s and 60s. The story about these letters and ''watcher'' went viral so the owners haven't been able to sell it or even rent it.

This palace-like mansion is the most beautiful mansion you will ever see. This is like a dream home! It spread over 21,000 sq. ft. and has 12 bedrooms, 11 baths, a ballroom, a library, an elevator, and a 400-foot-long beach and has hosted a number of royals and nobles including the Duke of Windsor in its 100-year-long existence. This house was abandoned for almost 50 years. There is a story that both (a couple) of the owners died in the mansion, with the husband committed suicide. No matter how the price gets dropped no one will buy this mansion.
THE PRIESTLEY HOUSE

The mansion is built by Dr. James Priestley in 1852. It is built in a Georgian style and it has 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a parlor, a music room, a library, swimming pool, office, terrace, and a separate greenhouse. The stories of the hauntings have stained this mansion’s real estate reputation. Former owners have claimed that they saw ghostly activities around the house like things moving about the room, a woman figure on the porch, and heard terrifying voices.
THE ANN STARRETT MANSION

Another Victorian Mansion on this list. This gorgeous mansion was built in 1889 by contractor George Starrett as a gift for his wife Ann.
It has 11 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and it's been a bed and breakfast and boutique hotel but is now being sold as a house. Guest reviews mentioned wardrobes opening on their own and the sound of footsteps. Some of them say that the Starrett couple and some of their servants still haunt the mansion. This house is currently without buyers and even without a price tag.
THE HALSTON PARTY PENTHOUSE

This luxurious mansion is located in New York, Upper East Side of Manhattan. This amazing penthouse was a really popular place for parties, hosting a great number of famous people. The price of this place really dropped but still, no one wants to buy it because of its controversial owner Roy Halston Frowick no one wants to get associated with. He had peculiar tastes that repel the potential buyers from buying the house.
