John D Wood & Co. Halloween

Finding your perfect home needn’t be a scary prospect.

No tricks, just property treats this Halloween

This year Halloween will be like no other, while we have already seen the return of the pumpkin spiced latte, which brings a welcomed sense of ‘normality’ this Autumn, restrictions on the usual door-to-door trick or treating, due to Covid-19, may be in place in some areas. However, you can still get your Halloween fix with activities a-plenty – many will be busy carving pumpkins and some embellishing their homes with ghostly decorations. While kids overindulge on sugary treats, adults will embrace their inner child by dressing up in outrageous and scary costumes and others might be more interested in visiting historical hauntings nearby.

By day, Brompton Cemetery is one of London's most beautiful Victorian garden cemeteries. Amid the stunning gothic mausoleums, there are headless angels guarding unmarked and crumbling tombstones.

Hampton Court Palace is the stunning former royal residence of Henry VIII. The Haunted Gallery is a favourite for those on the lookout for Henry’s fourth wife, Catherine Howard – said to have been dragged from the gallery to her ultimate death in the Tower of London, with her screams to be heard echoing in the night.

John D Wood & Co. is showcasing a selection of haunted property picks with some spooky window displays to bring a bit of light hearted fun to all of their branches, from Sloane Square to Richmond in London, and across the country from Oxford to Lymington – and will be well worth visiting.

Take a look at our spooky properties below

Hellsington Gore, KI11

An eerie two deadroom residence in an early Victorian mansion block. The property is located in unpopular Fearful Borough of Hellsington and Hellsea and boasts truly terrifying vaulted staircases leading nowhere throughout its grim, haunted halls and corridors. Scare of Frighthold | Guide Price £666,600.

Grimrose Thrill, HE11

A recently converted parish church on the outskirts of Grimrose Village, this property is offered for rent with many of the original frightful features still intact, including sorrowful wailing from the empty pews, random discordant outbursts on the original organ and an awful aspect over extensive haunted gardens. £1,313 Per Calendar Month (fleas apply).

North Salem Village, DE4D

An imposing gothic building in 666 acres of spooky shrubland and forest, this former ‘asylum for those of psychopathic tendencies’ is in some need of modernising. With over 60 bedrooms and constant shrieking from the hauntings, this property is perfect for someone looking for a project. Frighthold | Guide Price £6,660,000.

Cornfields, EV11

The Cornfields development is a series of flying properties, situated in an area of extreme weather. The fixtures and fittings are all of a period styling, and whilst the exterior could benefit from a few modern touches, the ambience created within the property really does give you that feeling of utter isolation. Scare of Frighthold | Guide Price £666,000.

Crystal Lake, GR1M

Surrounded by delightfully murky waters and in need of complete renovation, this ramshackle cabin is the perfect weekend getaway.

Frighthold | Guide Price £666,000.
