PUNTA GORDA, Fla. -- A beautiful and unusual home is for sale in Punta Gorda, Florida.  It comes with a high price tag and a built in roommate.

The owners of this yellow Victorian say if you don't believe in ghosts the Sandlin home may change your mind.

"It's a great view so it's a great place to be. And if you have a perpetual 14 year old teenage girl playing trick on you, kinda fun," says homeowner Vander Wynn.

Built in 1893 the historic house in downtown Punta Gorda has a tragic past involving a young girl named Mary Leah. 

"So evidently kerosene spilled onto her, she caught on fire and then the burns ended up taking her life," Wynn explains.

Ever since the teenager's death, the home is said to be haunted. Homeowners Vander and Natalie Wynn say they've heard footsteps and strange sounds, even the rustling of a young girl's petticoats.      

"I hear my wife walk down the stairs, and I call out her name and she says yes from a different part of the house. There's some weird things like that you really can't explain," Wynn notes. 

"She's really not scary she just makes noise. Sometimes I've told her you need to be quiet," says Natalie Wynn.

If that doesn't spook you, you could move in. The haunted house is on the market for $1.59 million.

But interested buyers should act fast, because even though the couple is leaving the house behind, they're trying to convince their spirited friend to come along with them.

"So we're just gonna leave the door open and the car and if she wants to come she can."
