I know the title of this post sounds like the latest in a string of questionable sequels to The Amityville Horror, but this is actually about a kitchen. I am a house nut, which helps explain part of the reason for my obsession with this story, and horror fan or not you have to admit 112 Ocean Avenue is a great house. As much as it pains me the owners who have lived there in the decades since the DeFeos have updated the home to meet the needs of modern living. Personally I love a kitsch mid-century/70s house but not everyone does. Recently the horror house changed hands again and new owners immediately made some changes. Lucky for us the design firm that did the work shared the before and after photos with the interwebs.
Check it out below. For your viewing pleasure I included pics from 1974 for comparison.
These are from the crime scene photos taken the day the DeFeo’s died. Don’t worry…I’m not going to sneak any photos of the victims in here.
The new kitchen is nice, just not my style. Hit the link above to check out the rest of the pics, including some of the updated third floor bathroom. I am glad that we’re able to see what the inside of 112 looks like today since the chances are slim I’ll ever be invited over for dinner.
Finally…just for fun…here is some fancy Photoshop magic.
