Idol's 'Haunted' Mansion -- $12 Million Price Tag

4/9/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Must be tough to rent out a giant mansion after several frightened "American Idol" contestants accuse the place of being haunted -- because TMZ has learned, the place is now up for sale ... for $12 million.

The private gated 15,000 square foot home sits on a 2-acre compound -- and features a giant pool, one especially large room with a 28-foot ceiling ... basically marble everything ... and a "motor court" with enough room to park 100 CARS.

In other words, it's the perfect home for scary ghosts.

I think I might know why the mansion is haunted. You guys know what was there BEFORE the mansion was built?. Back in 1969, Charles Manson's "Family" killed Sharon Tate and several others in a house that occupied the SAME land/location 40+ years ago. That house was demolished around the mid-90's and they built the current mansion there. Since then, it's been hard to sell...I'm amazed it's even at $12 million now. Not sure I'd want to live or even rent there either.

Isn't that the same house where MTV filmed A SHOT OF LOVE with Tila Tequila? Not that I ever watched the show, but that could also explain the evil spirits.

There's no difference between trying to get renters or buyers to stay in this home. However, probably nobody will buy it until they get some sorry ghost hunters in there to give the clear. On those ghost shows like Ghost Hunters, their are people who call them because they cannot get business or sell because of a ghost legacy. The owner might as well give up.

NOT the same location as the murders of Sharon Tate. Polanski/Tate residence was 100050 Cielo Drive. That house was torn down, but this is not the new house.
The Idol house is haunted because it's UGLY! And what's with the kiddie fence around a 12 mil dollar house?

wasn't this the house that Josh Altman looked at on Million Dollar Listing and his client hated it.

For that kind of money, I wouldn't buy that house. It lacks warmth and coziness.

If they take bad checks and a promise to pay. I will take that house right now. Oh I need the butler to stay. I have a collection of hair pins I found on a subway. Maybe I can use them as a down payment? I will have to get me a segway just to make it to the fridge and back.

#1, "Louis" you are a fool. The place where the murders took place is now an Italian Villa on a cliff. Jeff Franklin (TV PRODUCER, FUll HOUSE) lives there!

Not interested...I can only park 100 of my cars there, and 28 foot ceiling? Too low...minimum acceptable is 35 feet.
