In February of 2014, Ashton Sachs, then 19 years old, allegedly entered his parents' home in San Juan Capistrano and fatally shot both his mother and father, Andra and Bradford Sachs, as they slept in their bed. He also allegedly shot his 8-year-old brother, paralyzing him, and attempted to shoot his 17-year-old sister, but missed. The home where the horrific incident occurred is now on the market for $4.995 million.

This is not the first time the home has been for sale since the killings. According to the OC Register, it was sold for $2.995 million in 2015, and it was previously listed in June for $5.695 million.

According to the listing, the five-bed, five-bath home was built in 1982, but has been recently renovated. Photos reveal a bright, white interior with lots of natural light and a beautiful yard. Amenities include a “large entertainers’ backyard, black bottom pool and spa with waterfall, large workout room, media room, sauna, steam room” and a “tranquil koi pond.” There is also a separate pool house with a bathroom and room for an office or art studio.

In California, a realtor is obligated to tell a potential buyer if a murder, suicide or other unsettling incident has occurred on the property in the last three years. Therefore, a realtor would have to disclose the Sachs murders in this instance.

Ashton Sachs pleaded not guilty to the killings, and will represent himself during his trial in September.
