"Houdini's old haunt" going up for auction May 19

The New York Post reports that the former Ridgefield, Connecticut home of Houdini's brother Dr. Leopold Weiss is going up for auction on May 19. The 10-bedroom home is known as Sunset Hall and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was recently on the market with an asking price of $4.75 million.

It's debatable how often "Houdini used to chill" (as The Post puts it) at this property. He and his brother Leopold had a famous falling out in 1917. Leo eventually left this house as his fortune and health declined. He ended his days in an apartmet in Inwood.

UPDATE: Historic Ridgefield estate sold one day before auction.
