Buyer pulls out of $2.3m ‘porn house’ sale

THIS home has seen its fair share of happy endings - but not for the person who was about to buy it.

In Paradise Valley in Arizona in the US, a woman named Linda Fein had just made a $2.3 million offer on a four-bedroom, 4,172-square-foot home spread across a half-hectare lot - until she pulled out of the deal after discovering its past in the porn industry.

Indeed, the property had been used as the set of Wifey's World, a porn site founded in 1998 and operated by a couple named Kevin and Sandra Otterson - the owners of the home - according to the Arizona Republic.

"At that price point, I figured there might be some courtesy to the buyer," Ms Fein told the Republic.

"I just can't make Thanksgiving dinner on counters where a porn star has been lounging around."

The home's listing agent told Ms Fein the owners were in the "entertainment industry."

That titbit led her to the shocking discovery.

In Arizona, there's no statute stating that porn-film-set history has to be disclosed in a listing.

"I certainly believe there are people out there who wouldn't care about the house being used for those purposes," Ms Fein told the paper.

"I'm just not one of them."
