HOUSE OF THE DAY: Live In The Addams Family House For Less Than $1 Million

addams family

This house isn’t creepy or kooky, but it’s where Charles Addams lived with his wife and gained inspiration for The Addams Family cartoon.

The Westfield, N.J. home is a registered landmark and is listed at $839,000.

Addams, the creator of The Addams Family, lived in the house between 1920 and 1947.

His single-panel cartoon, which first appeared in The New Yorker, spawned two live-action TV shows, two animated TV shows, three movies, and a Broadway musical. 

The 1907 colonial home has been preserved much as it was during the time Addams lived there with his first wife.

And don’t worry they didn’t keep a hearse in the living room.
