The Clutter House, featured in Capote’s In Cold Blood, is up for Sale

Holcomb, KS – August 29, 2006 – The Clutter House, a national historic home and the basis of the book, In Cold Blood, written by Truman Capote, is currently being offered for sale by Faulkner Real Estate.

The Clutter House was the scene of a grisly murder in 1959 in Holcomb, Kansas. The house’s original owner, Herbert Clutter, was found dead, along with his wife and two teenaged children early one fall morning. The house has since gained even more national attention by being the focus of Truman Capote’s book, In Cold Blood. The story of the Clutter House has also been memorialized on screen with two movies, the first actually being shot in and around the Clutter House.

The house is currently owned by Donna and Leonard Mader. The Maders’ took ownership of the house in 1990, and are the third owners of the historic Clutter House. One of the Maders’ neighbors, Sonnie Baird, states, “It’s like the Amityville Horror House in New York, or J.R. Ewing’s house outside Dallas.”

Faulkner Real Estate in Ulysses, KS is currently handling the sale of the Clutter House. The sale is offered as a “Private Auction,” a sales method developed by Mark Faulkner. Faulkner Real Estate has been in business for over 20 years, and offers residential, commercial, and agricultural real estate. For more information on Faulkner Real Estate, please visit:
