For fans of AMC's The Walking Dead, the property may look familiar.

If you’re a fan of AMC’s smash zombie hit The Walking Dead, the home might look slightly familiar.

It was, after all, the set for Sheriff Rick’s house in the first season, albeit viewers will have seen it in worse shape than it is now – but considering he was in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, it’s safe to say there were bigger issues to be dealt with.

Dating back to 1897, the Victorian home’s sprawling front porch isn’t just an absolute eye catcher, we also imagine it to be perfect for staging your own rendition on the zombie apocalypse come Halloween.

Inside, the spacious rooms create time impression of being transported back in time for a few years, but the property has been completely renovated to bring it into modern times.

Heart pine floors and original millwork stand for the house’s history and tradition, while a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen – complete with a stunning, black-and-white island – and dry bar harken of modern times.

The master bathroom impresses with marble tiles, creating the perfect scene for the traditional claw foot tub which wouldn’t look out of place in historic photographs, either.

Two sets of large, 8-foot French doors open towards the rear of the home, leading out onto a huge, covered rear deck perfect for summer barbecues or to build a snowman in winter.

At the back of the house, French doors lead out onto the sprawling back porch.

Oh, and did we mention it also comes with sweeping, 11-foot ceilings and two fully working fireplaces, to cozy up in front of during the winter?

Sold through Virgent Realty, the Sheriff’s former perch luckily comes without any undead people lurking in the basement or the backyard, but with a price tag of $659,900 (€592,062.28, £497,162.06).
