The possibly-haunted St. Charles stunner has been on the market since 2017.

The price tag on a circa-1885 Victorian mansion that once belonged to author Anne Rice has been lowered for the second time in two years.

After extensive renovations, the property’s current owner first listed the New Orleans landmark in 2017 for $5 million. The price was dropped to $4.5 million last summer, and now Curbed is reporting that it’s been chopped yet again, this time to $4.3 million.

Even with the most recent deduction, the exquisite 8,747-square-foot home on St. Charles Avenue (video below) remains among the most expensive residences currently on the market in New Orleans. Long-rumored to be haunted, Rice is believed to have written some of Lasher and The Witching Hour while living in the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home.

Listing agent Eleanor Farnsworth of New Orleans Luxury Real Estate told Realtor.com that the seller spent around $2 million bringing the home into the modern age all while maintaining its vintage charm. Remaining original details include stained-glass windows, chandeliers, intricate millwork, and a mahogany and cypress staircase.

Um, we’ll take it!
