Towers, unfinished walls and a new owner -- oh my! This 4,861-square-foot five-bedroom mansion at 2309 Wichita Street sold Tuesday.
Listing Realtor Brenda Ames said in an email that the property was listed at $150,000 but after approximately 25 offers, the property sold for $251,000. That's a lot of money to pay to feel like you live on the set of American Horror Story.
The home was put on the market for the first time since Deutsche Bank snagged it in 2011, following the death of the previous owner, Charles Fondow.
Nick Ugarov, the new proud owner of this (haunted-looking) house, said he is unsure what his exact plans are for the home. "The only thing I know is that I will not tear down the property," Ugarov said.

Before dying, Fondow was overseeing a 31-year renovation and expansion of the property that never reached completion. Ugarov said he wants to complete the unfinished parts of the home.
"I am finishing this project in his memory," Ugarov said.
Here's to 31 more years.
