The New Jersey creepy Watcher House is back in the news today as another attempt to sell the home that comes complete with a creepy watcher is underway. This million dollar home looks like it is worth every penny of the asking price, but buyer beware of the “Watcher!”
As Fox News reports on March 30, the house was dubbed the “Watcher House,” because no matter who is living there, notes arrive from a mysterious source. These creepy and anonymous letters are all addressed to the owners of the house, whoever that may be at the time.
The notes have said things such as: “Do you need to fill the house with the young blood I requested? Once I know their names I will call to them and draw them to me,” one note read. “Have they found what is in the walls yet? In time they will,” said another bizarre message.
Derek and Maria Broaddus purchased the house in 2014 and they are still the current home owners. The creepy notes started coming the first few days they owned the house. Because the Broaddus couple didn’t feel it was safe to move into the house with some bizarre stalker out there penning notes on the dark side, they never moved in. They didn’t want to put their three kids in a home that has a mysterious watcher, so they put it back on the market.
The watcher of this home, which is in Westfield, New Jersey, had a note waiting for the new owners just three days after the closing of the house. The police have investigated, but can’t seem to find the culprit, who has eluded to the house possibly having something sinister sitting inside the walls, as one note suggested.
News Max reports that the Broaddus couple purchased the house for $1.25 million and because they are having a rough time sparking the interest of a buyer, they are selling it at a loss with the price reduced to $1 million flat! The Broaddus couple is suing the previous owners for not divulging the bizarre and frankly, quite scary notes coming to the house. The previous owners said that they did receive a letter, but it wasn’t threatening.
“The Watcher” is a fictitious character, and the suit should be dropped, which is the previous owners’ take on this. Fictitious or not, when you are raising a family and you have some type of weird pen pal watching over the house and all that goes on there, you can’t take a chance of putting your loved ones in harm’s way. The parents don’t want to take the chance despite these notes having many believing that they are nothing more than a prank.
The “Watcher” claims to be from a long line of watchers of that house. He once wrote, “My grandfather watched the house in the 1920s and my father watched in the 1960s. It is now my time.” Families hand all types of traditions down through the generations, but watching or stalking a house… now that is just plain weird!
