Why trick out a haunted house for Halloween when you can just buy yourself a copy of Disney's Haunted Mansion?
This 10,000-plus-square-foot, four-story replica of the Disney Haunted Mansion is in Duluth, Georgia, in the Sweet Bottom Plantation gated community. Designed and built in 1996 by Disney contractor Mark Hurt, the Haunted Mansion is listed on eBay for the Buy It Now price of $873,000. Click the photo above to see a slide show of the mansion.
Hurt measured the real-life Disney Haunted Mansion at Disneyland to come up with a faithful copy; he employed the foundry that produced the original ironwork for his own detailing; he topped the roof with four fake smokestacks just like the Disney version; he built a matching playhouse ... and perhaps best of all, he installed a "haunted" bathroom with flickering lights and a ghostly mirror, which neighbors clamored to visit every Halloween:
Hurt lived with his wife and son in the seven-bedroom, six-bathroom home for years, but now he's moving on to new Disney-related projects: a house modeled on Disneyland's Grand Californian Hotel, a Jungle Cruise-themed swimming pool and a replica of Walt Disney's backyard barn.
