(Newser) – It has 10 rooms, a strong rental history, and a terrace that overlooks a picturesque valley in Perugia, Italy. But those aren't the reasons the real estate listing for this house is drawing so much attention, reports the Daily Beast. It happens to be the home where Meredith Kercher was murdered in 2007, a crime for which Amanda Knox was convicted, then acquitted. A retrial is currently underway. The listing currently has the house up for 460,000 euro, or $625,000.

“It is obviously a property with a difficult history,” the estate agent for the property tells the DB. “Those types of houses are never easy to sell.” The owner remodeled the place in 2009, making changes that essentially eliminated the room where the murder took place. If it doesn't sell, the owner plans to tear it down and sell the land to a developer. "Who would want to live in a place like that?" wonders a blogger at the Stir.
