    The South Boston home where late mobster James "Whitey" Bulger and his gang buried three of their victims is for sale.

    The Boston Globe reports that the asking price for the 1,975-square-foot two-story home on a 5,000-square-foot lot that also includes a second residence is $3.5 million.

    The home at 799 East Third St. was once owned by a Bulger associate.

    "I don't hear anybody in the neighborhood here talk about the house," said man who lives in the neighborhood.

    During Bulger's racketeering trial, a witness said he saw Bulger kill Arthur Barrett, John McIntyre, and Deborah Hussey in the house. Their bodies were buried in the basement. In 1985, when the house was about to be sold, the bodies were exhumed and reburied elsewhere.

    Newcomers said they weren't even aware of the property's history when they moved to the area.

    "It's just so crazy that something like that could happen and now you look at it in 2019 and it's like a calm street... I feel safe walking home from the bars," one woman said.

    The real estate listing refers to the property as a "development opportunity," in South Boston's City Point neighborhood.

    The entire property is assessed at $899,000.

    The listing agent said the owner hope the sale will help the neighborhood move beyond the dark days of South Boston.
