This affluent house sits upon a hill overlooking Echo Park. It resides a neighborhood called Hathaway Hills.
The story behind the house is that Charlie Chaplin used to own the house and sold it for whatever reason? In any case, a man moved in with his family. And soon after the house would lead to his and his family`s demise. He came home from work one afternoon and killed his mother, his wife and children.
People describe the house as a spooky and haunting location. Curious kids went to the house and saw the same Mercedes Benz crashed into the garage with "police tape" stuck to the side of the house and front porch. It has been reported that one can see a mirage of the grandmother and hear the children screaming.
There have been other reports of eerie sounds and sightings of wild animals, for example, a lion. Lastly, the house has a dark side and lighter side.
Today one can see a single window with a table lamp on shining noticeably. The house is an old Victorian style, also it looks like the Psycho house used in the actual film.

We were doing some research into this topic, as per a request. Sadly, It looks as though this is partially bunk. Chaplin has owned many mansions.
The mansion in Switzerland is where Chaplin spent his remaining years and died on Dec. 25 1977 of natural causes.

Two bodies found at Charlie Chaplin`s mansion in Switzerland -- (C-News) Two bodies have been found on the grounds of a mansion near Lake Geneva that belongs to the family of silent movie star Charlie Chaplin, police said Saturday.
Police baffled by murder at Chaplin`s Swiss mansion -- (Toronto Star)
Swiss police were baffled this weekend by the discovery of the bodies of a hanged man and a decapitated woman at the Swiss estate that belongs to the family of silent movie star Charlie Chaplin.
So, the mansion which had the murder occur was in Switzerland, not in the USA. Chaplin had atleast 2 houses in this area. One at 1085 Summit Drive, Beverly Hills, and the other at 6147 Temple Hill Drive in hollywood hills. He had rented a third house, but I am not able to find an address as of yet.
I don`t know about the comment from the anonymous visitor, but I couldn`t possibly see the mansion from Duane st/2 on ramp. (see pictures), perhaps hes refering to the house that chaplin rented?
Chaplain had two homes in Los Angeles County
6147 Temple Hill Drive
Hollywood Hills , CA
1085 Summit Drive
Echo Park, CA
The Moorcroft manor is now for sale, for about 9 Mill.
So it seems that this story has some truth behind it, and some missunderstandings... A gruesome murder/suicide occured at his Switzerland mansion, but as of yet... I have not seen a single news story in any archive, about there being a murder at one of the California, USA locations.
