Curbed and Y! Local reports
In the popular imagination, the creator of the spooky Addams Family series, Charles Addams, probably occupied some gloomy Victorian, not a well-groomed Colonial in northern New Jersey.
Well, it turns out the genius who created such creepy environs for his characters actually lived in this quaint six-bedroom in Westfield Town, N.J., along with his wife — not named Morticia, by the way — from 1920 to 1947.
The house is now available for sale for $839K, and, it should be mentioned, has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
In an additional creepy coincidence, the house is located on ... Elm Street. Hmm. Amenities for the 6-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom abode include a dining room with butler's pantry, formal living room, an eat-in kitchen with granite counter-tops and a slider to the deck -- but no boiler room in the basement. Whew.
