When a house listing’s first line is “Mystic House…Guarantee you will remember this property,” then you know you’ve discovered something unique. The feeling is further exacerbated when you read the line, “If you are a scaredy cat, don’t come”.

Yes, we’re talking about this seemingly-innocent listing from the Adelaide suburb of Magill.

What a gorgeous house, right? What could possibly be wrong with this listing?

Sure, the ‘Woodforde House’ – which dates back to approximately 1856 – looks a bit spooky, but doesn’t every 19th century house?

“This has been in the same family since 1977. The family of six best describe the fun and good times as Mrs Bates in the Hitchcock movie. The house on the hill,” real estate agent Anthony Toop describes the property.

He adds, “Everything needs work but what a property, what incredible grounds spread over two titles. Watch the cob webs, and don’t wear a suit.

“Brave people only, leave the kids at home or keep them supervised. Watch the steps.”

Could this be your future house? It’s a ‘no’ from us.
