On August 10, 1969, supermarket executive Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary were brutally murdered at the hands of Charles Manson 's followers.
They were mercilessly executed by the Manson Family commune in their LA mansion the day after the cult members killed pregnant actress Sharon Tate.
But decades later you would have no idea the luxurious house had such a bloody and disturbing history.
The $2.8 million (£2.2m) abode, nestled in the heart of Hollywood, boasts an outdoor pool and a state-of-the-art interior with a large private living space, a majestic garden and a scenic views.
The gated two-bedroom home, which was built in the 1920s, seems like the perfect place to live – but the bloody past haunts the residence.
The house is now on the market and photos from the online listing give us a glimpse of the house.
It has been decorated with a modern style with lots of windows and light furnishings.
The kitchen has white units and a matching floor with a statement wooden unit in the middle which the current owners use to store pots and pans.
The front door opens into a seating area with a comfy cream sofa and a elaborate chandelier.
There's also a more cosy looking living area with a patterned rug and a book case.
There is a large bed in one of the bedrooms with sliding glass doors opening on to a terrace with stunning views of the surrounding hills.
Real estate agent Robert Giambalvo revealed the history behind the multi-million dollar mansion.
In California, it is mandatory for any seller to reveal any deaths in the property over the last three years.
But due to the high profile nature of the case, he decided to make the public aware on the unfortunate event that befell the residence 50 years ago.
Mr Giambalvo told the Los Angeles Times: “We don’t want somebody to go into escrow and find out 10 days, 15 days later that there was the event that happened 50 years ago. And then they don’t want to buy it because of that.
“We just wanted people to make offers with their eyes wide open.”
However, a couple of potential buyers have expressed interest in the property despite the killings.
Mr Giambalvo said: “It’s just such a calm, peaceful, serene environment that I don’t think anybody cares about what happened a long time ago.
