The Colorado house where convicted murderer Chris Watts killed his pregnant wife, before murdering their children, is on sale for $660,000, the Sun reports.

Watts, 36, strangled his wife Shanann – who was 15 weeks pregnant with their son – inside the couple’s Frederick home on August 13, 2018. He later smothered their daughters, Bella, 4, and Celeste, 3.

The house of horrors was secretly listed last week under a fictitious address on realty website Rocket Homes. 

The 4,177-square-foot four bedroom, five bathroom home was built in 2013, sits on 0.15 acres and offers stunning views of the Rocky Mountains.

The listing agent, likely in an effort to deter true crime buffs from touring the property, is only offering ‘limited showings’ of the property to potential buyers with ‘funding commitment’ letters for at least $660,000. A Zillow listing estimated the home’s value at $816,200. 

The Watts family home, which was foreclosed on after Watts was arrested and defaulted on the mortgage, was featured in the Netflix documentary American Murder: The Family Next Door, which details the slayings of Shannan and her kids.

The seller, which is listed as Coldwell Banker Realty, opted to keep the living room the same shade of pale blue that the Watts family had chosen.

The laundry room and bathroom, which were painted in a distinct vibrant blue, also remained outfitted in the family’s chosen paint color.

The house, which features a gas fireplace and three-car garage, is being sold ‘as is,’ according to the listing.

Interested parties are asked to submit their funding commitment letters by May 24, at which point the seller will reach out to schedule a showing if they are willing to consider the offer.

Watts killed Shannan after she came home from a business trip to Arizona in 2018. 

He strangled her and then put her body and their two daughters in his truck and drove to isolated oil storage tanks owned by Anadarko Petroleum, where he worked.

He buried his wife in a shallow grave and then smothered his two daughters and placed their bodies inside the storage tanks. 

For two days Watts claimed that he had nothing to do with his family’s disappearance and went on television to plead for them to come home. 

After his arrest he initially claimed that Shanann had killed the girls after he had told her he wanted a separation, and then he had strangled her in anger.

At his trial, he pleaded guilty to avoid the death penalty, which has since been abolished in Colorado.

He is serving serving five life sentences plus 48 years in prison without the possibility of parole at the Dodge Correctional Institution in Waupun, Wisconsin.

At the time of the murders, Watts was having an affair with a colleague. At one point he alleged he wouldn’t have killed his wife Shanann and their two little girls if he hadn’t met his mistress.

One of his fellow inmates, David Carter, however claimed Watts told him that he killed Shanann because he didn’t want to pay child support, he didn’t want the son that she was expecting, and feared his wife would take their house in Frederick, Colorado, in a divorce.

‘I don’t buy any of that though,’ Carter, who was jailed for meth possession and for stealing money from his employers, told DailyMail.com last year. ‘I couldn’t ever kill my entire family just because I didn’t want a child or didn’t want to pay child support.

‘I have a lot of things going on in my life, but I have never wanted to stop and kill my entire family because I wanted certain things to go my way.’

Carter, who is now living in a halfway house in Green Bay, Wisconsin, said that Watts keeps pictures of his two daughters pinned up in his cell. 

‘But there are no pictures of Shanann,’ he added. ‘He told me he has nightmares every night, always the same, of his two girls standing in his cell playing catch.’
