Despite his legendary status among horror fans, less is known about the beloved Dracula portrayer's many dwellings throughout Los Angeles, even during the peak of his film career. One such palatial estate is this house in Beachwood Canyon, in which Lugosi is said to have lived for just one year (1936-37).

According to real estate site Curbed LA, the five-bedroom house, dubbed "Castle La Paloma," was last on the market last summer when it sold for $2.6 million, and prior to that, it apparently looked a bit spookier and more vampire-appropriate than it does today, as you can see here:

Some mysterious touches remain, however, including exotic statues and paintings, and an antique rocking horse.

The current owner has invested in extensive renovations, including new a slate roof, paint job and a remodeled kitchen, and is now reportedly flipping the house at an asking price of over $4.1 million.
