Couple discover 'creepy secret' in their 130-year-old house after receiving chilling letter
| Last updated
A couple have been left stunned after finding out the 130-year-old home they moved into has a lot more to it than meets the eye.
Courtney and Matt had barely unpacked when they received an eerie letter through the postbox revealing that their property had some hidden 'secrets' that they should be aware of.
Take a look:
Courtney explained it had apparently been sent from Canada by the 'last surviving member' of the family that previously owned the Victorian pad.
She told her followers: "We got a letter addressed 'purchaser'. It says, ‘Let me introduce myself. I am the last surviving member of the Madison family who once owned the house, and I grew up in it,’
"‘I would like to tell you about the secret rooms and a few things you may not have been told when you bought the house'."
The couple were obviously intrigued by the mysterious letter and began a bizarre treasure hunt to find what novelties were lurking under their noses.
Their first discovery was a secret compartment above their fireplace which slid up to reveal a horde of vintage liquor.
It was brimming with unopened wine, beer, bourbon and sherry.
The letter then instructed them to check out a secret room ‘in the [bathroom], directly opposite the door in the wall'.
Courtney joked that her unrenovated bathroom was 'by far the scariest room in the house' before she headed inside.
The mum wasn't as wowed by this discovery as she deemed it more of a 'creepy' crawl space rather than a secret room - but it was a interesting all the same.
She said: "I guess if you were a kid when you lived here you might be like 'oh, cool secret room'."
However, there was another hidden room directly across from her toilet which was hidden behind some wall panelling.
"There is this huge space," Courtney continued.
"We’re going to try and figure out how to use this space, but right now it’s just kind of a cool, cool room."
The third and final hidden secret room was in the basement, so the mum headed down and searched for something that was supposedly hidden by the retaining wall.
Unfortunately, the former owners had fortified the hidey hole and essentially blocked access to it, leaving Courtney only able to have a peek inside.
But she wasn't too bothered anyway, as this also appeared to be a furniture-filled crawl space - but it was still very spooky.
Courtney and Matt have found a host of other cool but creepy items in their new home, including a music box that plays a goosebump inducing version of The Wedding March.
If only walls could talk, eh?
The couple have launched a GoFundMe in the hopes of raising enough money to save their grand historic home and complete the necessary renovations.
