The front door to the home where Sharon Tate was infamously murdered by Charles Manson‘s cult has sold at auction … and the highest bidder put a big chunk of change down for the piece of dark history.
The door was sold courtesy of Julien’s Auctions … after 40 bidders vied for the unique find. The high bid was $127k. It was projected to fetch somewhere between $2,000 and $4,000.
Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor recorded an album in the Cielo Drive house in 1992 — long after the grizzly 1969 murders.
Trent ended up taking the door with him before the place was demolished. He took it to his New Orleans recording space but left it behind in 2004 when he relocated his studio.
From there, a doctor bought Trent’s recording space and pulled the door out of the trash when he learned about its history. The door was then purchased from the doctor by a man named Christopher Moore in 2017. Eventually, the door made its way to Julien’s Auctions.
No word on who bought the door, but it will certainly be quite the conversation piece.
Sharon’s sister, Debra, told us she was disgusted the door was being sold … saying it should be destroyed, given its macabre history.
