The House That Inspired Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY is Up For Sale

The House That Inspired Stephen King’s PET SEMATARY is Up For Sale

Nearly 40 years ago, Stephen King moved his family into a rented home that went on to inspire one of his most successful novels: Pet Sematary. Now, that home can be yours if you have the will and the money to pay for it. But we can’t guarantee that any supernatural properties are attached to the land behind the home!

Via the Associated PressWCSH-TV is reporting that the house in question is being sold for $255,000.00. For that price, you’ll get a four-bedroom home that was built in 1904, three acres of land, and potentially enough nightmares to last a lifetime. According to King, he moved into the house while he was the writer-in-residence at the University of Maine at Orono. The house was located near a road frequently used by truckers that infamously claimed the lives of several neighborhood dogs and cats. The local children created an actual pet cemetery behind King’s house, which he had to use when his daughter’s cat was killed by a truck on the road. After a close call with his son and the road, King hatched the idea for Pet Sematary.

The picture above is from the Pet Sematary movie that was released in 1989. That’s actually a different house in Maine, rather than the one used by King. Within the novel and the movie, the titular Pet Sematary did have the power to raise the dead. However, animals returned to the living as shells of their former selves, and resurrected people became vicious murderers. We can understand why the fictional realtors would leave that part out of their sales pitch for the home!

In reality, you can get a glimpse of King’s former home here, and it looks quite pleasant in that real estate listing. This realtor is also very upfront about the house’s past, and they use it as a selling point.
