Hey guys.
Not sure if anyone's already seen these, but here's a link to photos of inside the house 2010.

Thanks. Yeah, these are the pics from when the house went up for sale. It was the public's first glance inside the house since the 80s or so. But for some reason I don't recall seeing that bottom photo of the kitchen before now. Maybe I just forgot...

I've seen these before. I know the walls to the original master bedroom and TV room have been knocked down to create the one giant room, but I'm still trying to figure out where the location of where Wilson's master bedroom was - looks like Ronnie's old room... but I could be wrong.

I also notice with the kitchen photograph there is a small portable television and no other televisions appear in the other photographs. I'm guessing Brian isn't a big television fan... :think:

I don't understand. Are you saying you think Wilson slept in Ronnie's room instead of the revamped (larger) master bedroom?

Those photos look a lot like the ones that AmityvillePhotos took. The original poster admitted these pictures aren't his and lifted (ie stolen) them from a website. Most likely Amityvillephoto's website.

It's such a beautiful home. Easy to see how some can overlook it's gruesome past; a home that beautiful needs to be loved and enjoyed. :)

It is a rare picture of the kitchen, though - not seen that one very often (whereas the others are all over the place!). Also remember seeing a picture of Allison's room, which is now a study. Can't find the link now (if anyone has it, please share). I don't think they're AmityPhotos' shots, though; pretty sure these are the official real estate shots (correct if I'm wrong, AP.)

It took me AGES to place that huge master bedroom btw! For the life of me I couldn't get to grips as to where it was in the body of the house. Soon as I realised it was the old master and TV rooms knocked together, it fell into place. :)

p.s. You talk of 80s photos, Dan - any links? :)

Just talking in general terms. I think the Cromartys were the last to "open" their home to the media, and that would have been during the 80s. No specific photos in mind -- just various shots found in newspapers/magazines, like the shot of the Cromartys in the living room (which is part of an article we have in our newspaper archives). Which article? I forget offhand, but it's in there. And you might run into others as well.

Also, there could easily be photos from the 90s that I am either forgetting about or unaware of.

I think you're right.

There is one other television in their master bedroom.

The DeFeos were the ones that had a TV practicially in every room...in the days when most families just had one TV.

Brian Wilson really did a good job at renovating the house. It really wasn't that well taken care of (at least on the outside) before he bought it.

My Mom keeps her TV inside a cabinet, and then opens the cabinet doors when she sits down to watch a program. Perhaps the same sort of thing is going on here, with the TV sets "hidden." Or maybe the house was "dressed up" expressly for these real estate photos, with the TV sets temporarily moved out of the shot and furniture rearranged.

I think it's a common practice for people to rent nice furniture in order to make their home look nicer to prospective buyers. So along those lines, maybe they decided the TVs kinda looked out of place, and had them removed?

I was thinking so, but now that you mention it, I'm guessing the room with the double bed is a guest room?

Of course I have no idea, but yeah, I would imagine it was being used as just another bedroom (maybe a guest room). I just don't see any reason why Brian would have used any other bedroom as his own other than that large master bedroom.

I really like the pictures , the house is beautiful ... and I thought that the Defeo family were the only one to had a boat in the boat house but now I see that the the Wilson family had a boat there too ... I definitely want to live there in a future :P .

Beautiful home! So nice in fact that one could find it surprising
that people were killed there once. It is a little too fancy for me,
I would be afraid I would break something. Not to mention I would be
obsessive about people taking their shoes off when they came indoors.

FOUND IT! Here's that picture of Allison's room I was talking about:

The room I'd most love to see though? That infamous "sewing" room ...

Thank you for the pictures. I already knew them but anyway. Today's house looks very beautiful. I would love to visit the place and the house someday.

I thought this would have been Missy's/Jodie's room since it's overlooking the boat house. I thought the sewing room would be on the opposite side.

Yeah, it is. :) Sorry if I wasn't clear - I didn't say that this room was the sewing room. I just said that I'd love to see what the room looks like now. Apologies for any confusion.

I still find it hard to picture ol butchie face walking around that very house
and murdering his family. It boggles the mind.

From what I read, the sewing room is part of the master bedroom. Brian Wilson knocked down the wall separating the two rooms and created a huge master bedroom taking up the entire half of that side of the house. There are photos of the master bedroom in a thread somewhere here.

No, the wall of the TV ROOM was knocked down, and is now part of the Master Bedroom.
