Ensconced in her sprawling California mansion,
eccentric firearm heiress Sarah Winchester believes she is haunted by the souls of people killed by the Winchester repeating rifle.
a mansion in San Jose, California,
that was once the personal residence of Sarah Winchester,
the widow of firearm magnate William Wirt Winchester.
Since its construction in 1884,
the property and mansion were claimed by many
to be haunted by the ghosts of those killed with Winchester rifles.
Under Winchester's day-to-day guidance,
its "from-the-ground-up" construction proceeded around the clock,
by some accounts, without interruption,
until her death on September 5, 1922,
“Burnt Offerings” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074258/...
“The Blair Witch Project” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185937/...
“The Old Dark House” (1932)
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0023293/... and this film had a remake too as a horror comedy in 1963.
Several nightmare on Elm Street films had scary looking houses.
The film i’m going to mention in a family comedy that ghost. In fact, director Brad Silberling wanted the haunted house in his film not to be a typical Victorian style haunted house . (Yes, I’m deliberately avoiding mentioning the name of the film until the last second.) Production designer Leslie Dilley suggested using the style of Gaudiesque of architect Antoni Gaudí for Whipstaff Manor In Casper. While there is no exterior shot of Whipstaff on the IMDb, this interior shot will have to do. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112642/...
To show how closely they copied Gaudi’s style and what elements made it into the film, check out this site that shows pictures of his buildings and of the Whipstaff Manor sets. https://sites.google.com/site/thecasp... . In fact, if you use the picture of Whipstaff from “Casper”, could you pleased include “Inspired by the architecture of Antoni Gaudi”.
Holmes Home ? ?
(Not a movie house = Not for your list)
Herman Webster Mudgett (May 16, 1861 – May 7, 1896),
better known as Dr. Henry Howard Holmes
or more commonly known as H. H. Holmes,
was an American serial killer.
While he confessed to 27 murders...
Many victims were said to have been killed
in a mixed-use building which he owned,
located about 3 miles (5 km) west of
the 1893 World's Fair: Columbian Exposition,
supposedly called the World's Fair Hotel
(informally called "The Murder Hotel"),
though evidence suggests the hotel portion was never truly open for business
Many of the rooms were outfitted with chutes
that would drop straight down to the basement
where Holmes had acid vats, quicklime and a crematorium to dispose of his victims' bodies
In popular culture...

Please correct the discussion link in your thread from:
The Inventor's mansion from Edward Scissorhands
1314 Mockingbird lane from the TV series “The Munsters” https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057773/... Yes, I’m cheating because the picture has the Munsters’ great looking car in front of it, but it is the best picture the IMDb has got of the house’s exterior. It is the only picture the IMDb has got of it.
I have already tried to look for The Addams Family mansion but couldn’t find it except for this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057729/...
And in the comedy mystery or comedy horror genre:
