The infamous killing spree by Charles Manson and his "family" of followers in the summer of 1969 left seven people dead and the entire city of Los Angeles on edge.
On Aug. 8, 1969, Manson devotees broke into a mansion in the hills of LA and killed whomever they could find inside, all in the name of launching Manson's "Helter Skelter" movement. Pregnant actress Sharon Tate, celebrity hairstylist Jay Sebring, coffee heiress Abigail Folger, aspiring screenwriter Wojciech Frykowski, and recent high school graduate Steven Parent, were all killed in the home on Cielo Drive in Beverly Hills.
The next evening, Manson led his followers to the Los Feliz home of supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife, Rosemary, and ordered his disciples to kill the couple. The words "rise" and "death to pigs" were scrawled in blood on the walls.
Fifty years after the murders, the LaBianca's Los Feliz home is now up for sale, priced at $1.98 million.
The two-bedroom, 1 1/2-bath home on Waverly Drive is billed as "truly, one of a kind" in the online listing. The property has changed hands several times since 1969 and last sold in 1998.
The house falls outside a requirement to inform buyers if a death occurred in a property in the previous three years, but Redfin listing agent Robert Giambalvo says he noted on the multiple listing service that it's the LaBianca house and agents should do research before showing it.
"I didn't want to go into escrow and then lock it up and find out two weeks later," Giambalvo told NBCLA.
The classic 1920s gated single story home with a pool is nestled in the "prime location" north of the Rowena Reservoir and offers unobstructed front and back views.
