Clue (Parker Brothers)Fresh off determining the real-world prices for Monopoly properties, the board game fans at Movoto have tackled another famous piece of fictitious real-estate: the mansion from Clue.
Making its board game debut in 1949, the sprawling manor would seem like a hard sell, having hosted countless dastardly deeds over the years. But look past its tainted rooms and deadly weapons and you'll find a pretty amazing home.
Movoto puts the Tudor-style mansion at a hefty $4,450,000, based loosely on a real-world location that does a pretty great job of emulating the house of horrors (minus all those murders, that is).
Grab a candlestick and say hello to Scotney Castle. Located in Kent, England, it's got everything you'd need in a mysterious mansion: medieval ruins, a moat, hidden rooms (dubbed "priest holes," as they were initially used to hide Catholic priests persecuted in the 16th century), and even its very own ghost.

From there the Movoto folks simply tallied up the number of bedrooms (eight -- one for each character and one apiece for the butler and maid), lined up some comps, and wound up with the $4 million-plus asking price. You might want to throw in an extra $50 a month for a rug cleaning service, though. Blood doesn't come out easy.
