Inside Kat Von D's $1.8M 'haunted' Indiana mansion with vineyard & 13 fireplaces after she flees California with family

KAT Von D is now the owner of a $1.8million “haunted” Indiana mansion after she left California with her family.

The property includes a vineyard, 13 fireplaces and more amenities.


The 39-year-old made the move after purchasing the historic Benjamin Schenk mansion in December 2020.

According to Realtor.com, the property is an Italianate style home and was designed by Cincinnati architect George P Humphries for Schenck.

The mansion was built in 1874 and was later restored from 1998-2000.

Spanning over 12,000 square feet and sitting on 10.6 acres, the tattoo artist’s new home features a four story tower, a widow watcher attic with three round dormer windows.

THE AMENITIES

Additionally, the home includes four porches, seven balconies, eighth chimneys, 13 fireplaces, more than 50 windows, 35 rooms and seven bedrooms.

Between the six bathrooms and two half baths, the home includes five original copper lined bath tubs.

The Indiana mansion also boasts an original slate roof, an Inn Keepers apartment and more.

A veranda overlooks the water garden, which was built using the original architectural drawings.

Special features on the outside portion of the property include a large patio, gazebo, fountains, waterfalls and a small vineyard.

The historic property is beloved by locals, as it was voted Indiana's best save in 2001.

Kat will be living in the home with her husband Rafael Reyes, 46, and their son Leafar Von Drachenberg Reyes.

MAKING MOVES

It seems Kat, whose real name Katherine Von Drachenberg, has no plans to permanently return to Los Angeles after she announced her plans on Monday to close her famous Hollywood tattoo shop.

Alongside a series of photos from High Voltage Tattoo Shop, Kat wrote on Instagram: "As some of you know, we recently purchased a beautiful home on a bit of land in rural Indiana, and the more time we spend out there we realize we feel more at home there than we do here in LA.

"After much thought, we have decided we will permanently be moving to Indiana at the end of this year. We plan on selling our beautiful home here, and I will most likely open a private studio in Indiana once we are done with the house remodel there."

END OF AN ERA

Kat then shared that she has chosen to permanently close that California-based tattoo show, writing: "I will be closing my beloved tattoo shop @highvoltagetat here in West Hollywood on Dec 1. I didn’t think it would make sense to keep it open if I wasn’t present, and aside from coming back to work on music with my band, we don’t plan on returning to LA very often."

The makeup mogul then encouraged her followers to stop by the tattoo shop before its closing date and suggested they follow her "talented fellow artists to see where they end up going in their journey!"

She continued in the caption: "I’d like to thank my beloved tattoo family that I’ve had the honor and privilege of working alongside.

"And a very special THANK YOU to all you wonderfully supportive folks who have come through @highvoltagetat over the years! Whether you came by to get tattooed, buy a tshirt, or just take a photo and say hi, I adore you for showing my little shop so much love!"

Kat's post concluded: "Thank you for 14 years of love + tattooing!"
