·2 min read

BURRILLVILLE, Rhode Island – The Rhode Island home that inspired the Conjuring series of movies is expected to be sold to a Boston developer on Thursday, according to a spokeswoman for the buyer.

Jacqueline Nuñez, owner of Boston-based WonderGroup, has agreed to pay $1.525 million for the house, which had an asking price of $1.2 million, according to her spokeswoman, Michelle McGrath.

"It's not going to be turned into a private property," said McGrath. "It's still something that will be open to the public."

McGrath said Nuñez's interest in the property is personal. "She has an interest in the spiritual," McGrath said. "She believes that there's some spiritual activity that happens in the house."

Live Facebook announcement

The current owners of the house, Cory and Jenn Heinzen, have scheduled a live event on their Facebook page, The Farm on Round Top Road, for 1 p.m. Thursday.

Nuñez, who holds a master's degree from the University of Rhode Island and bachelor's and law degrees from Northwestern University, lives in the Savin Hill section of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood.

The Heinzens had operated a business renting the house to overnight visitors who styled themselves as paranormal investigators.

McGrath declined to comment on whether Nuñez would live in the house.

The first film in the Conjuring series focused on self-proclaimed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, of Connecticut, and their investigation of spiritual happenings that the Perron family said happened to them when they lived in the 3,100-square-foot house at 1677 Round Top Rd.

In October, three members of the Perron family – father Roger, then 86, and daughters Andrea, then 63, and Nancy, then 61 – returned to the house to take part in a live-streamed paranormal investigation there.

Other members of the family joined the event virtually from Georgia, where they now live.
