Homeowner finds secret apartment inside attic that ‘looks like horror film’

A Reddit user said “there’s a house in my attic” as he posted “creepy” photos of the bizarre find at his home, which was a store and then a church before it was converted into a private residence

A homeowner was shocked when he discovered a secret and creepy-looking “house” decaying in his attic.

The man shared fascinating photos of the crumbling apartment, which has several rooms, a decades-old toilet, a bathroom sink and intact glass windows that have been walled over.

After making the bizarre discovery when he crawled into the attic, the property owner snapped photos of the eerie scene and posted them on Reddit with the caption: “There’s a house in my attic.”

He described the secret flat as “creepy” and filled with spiders, and said the two-storey building was originally a store where the owners lived upstairs, but it was turned into a church and “they just built around it”.

The building has since been converted into a private home that is occupied by the Reddit member, whose username is CatchingWindows.

It is believed the property is somewhere in the US.

The Reddit user wrote: “Coz people keep asking, it was a store where the owners lived upstairs.

“I believe someone told me it was Carl’s market.

“But it was turned into a church. I’m guessing the church owners didn’t want to bother with knocking it down so they just built around it.

“When it was converted into a church the second floor was sealed off and a C-shaped addition was added to the ground floor, with a large attic built around the second floor.”

He said he has lived at the property for about two years and, responding to questions from stunned Reddit users, said the attic is “big”.

Inside, he wrote that he found “junk, old cabinet, a tire, a hat, a toilet and sink”.

He added: “Dirt. Lots of dirt. And spiders.

“The only way out of the attic is through a small square hole, so extra scary.”

Someone jokingly asked if the flat was occupied by Pennywise, the clown from Stephen King’s It, and the owner replied: “No I’d guess Satan lives there because it was over 100F [37C] up there.”

He didn’t expect his original post – showing only the creepy-looking door that leads to the upstairs apartment, with white paint peeling off an old exterior wall – would “blow up”.
