Listed by 'The Sisters' Eileen Allan and Shannan Assad, the property in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, is being marketed for an asking price of $298,500.
We know what you're thinking: is there a killing pit in the basement? Take the video tour below to find out:
The three-floor Princess Anne Victorian house was the home of crazed serial killer Jame Gumb AKA Buffalo Bill (played by Ted Levine) in the 1992 hit horror, which scooped seven Academy Awards.
From the ominous dance scene - in which Buffalo Bill is seen wearing one of his victim's scalps (shudder) - to the famous line "It rubs the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again", the property formed the back drop to some of the film's most haunting moments.
Located on 1.76 acres of land that lies along the Youghiogheny River, the property has four bedrooms and one bathroom, and was built in the year 1910.
The exterior of the property looks much the same as it did in the original film, with its wraparound veranda framed by greenery.
A rose garden and fountain have been added to the front of the property.
There's also a built-in pool with a vintage caboose and ceramic tile pool deck.
Inside, many original features dating back to 1910 remain, such as hard wood floors, light fixtures and fireplaces.
With its cinema connections, the property is likely to receive a lot of attention from prospective buyers.
It has the potential to be turned into a popular themed Air BnB rental or tourist attraction, if the buyer did not wish to live in the house themselves.
The original film, starring Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, followed FBI trainee Clarice Starling as she tracks down killer Buffalo Bill with the assistance of imprisoned cannibal and serial killer Dr. Hannibal Lecter.
Deadline report that the film crew spent a total of three days shooting at the property.
We're hoping buyers don't have to lotion themselves up before entry. Expect "hello, Clarice" jokes on arrival.
