The Turpin family house of horrors is up for sale, as The Press-Enterprise has reported.

In a world exclusive earlier this year, RadarOnline.com published sickening photos of the home, showing the filth that a forensic team had to sweep up.

The house of David and Louise Turpin became notorious after they got accused of abusing most of their 13 children there. It was a case that shocked the nation when one of their kids fled the house to freedom in January 2018.

According to the allegations, the married couple, among other things, shackled their kids to furniture, fed them moldy pie, and whipped them with a belt.

The Turpins' kids were taken away from them; they have pleaded not guilty to torture, child abuse, and perjury charges that could carry a life sentence.

Cops investigated their filthy house at the time, as Radar's scoop revealed — and on Saturday, December 29, as the Turpins' trial date looms, their home in Perris, Calif., went on the market.

The auction for the now clean four-bedroom house with an appraised value of more than $350,000 ends this Wednesday, January 2, 2019.

It is being conducted on behalf of an unnamed lender through the web site Hudson and Marshall.

The house has four bedrooms and three bathrooms -- but it was allegedly an unhealthy tight squeeze for the Turpins' big brood.

The property is listed in fair condition, but there is no mention of the alleged abuse that took place there.

As Radar reported, the Turpin parents pleaded not guilty to charges of torture, child abuse and a "lewd act on a child," in a Riverside, Calif. court. Their home has clearly been cleaned up since then. According to the Press-Enterprise, everything inside the property is now working -- and there is no sign of the horrors that might have occurred there.

David and Louise were charged with holding their 13 children—who ranged in age from 2 to 29-- hostage and keeping them "chained" to furniture as they staved and beat them in their home. Some of the kids appeared severely malnourished.

On November 30, 2018, a judge announced that motions in the Turpin case will be heard the week of August 12, 2019, and that the Turpins' trial would officially begin on September 3, 2019. They were arrested in January 2018 when a daughter, 17, escaped from the family's home and called 911. The house was foreclosed on in November 2018.
