During an appearance on Rob Lowe‘s Literally podcast, Kevin explained that the farm’s former owner hesitated to include an abandoned house that was located on the premises, and the actor was only able to purchase the land after writing into the contract that he would destroy the house.

“It was an abandoned house that [the owner] had grown up in,” Kevin said. “We kind of went back and forth on it for a while and then, eventually, I said, ‘Listen, you can’t sell me a piece of land but not sell me the house that’s on it. Like, that’s just weird. What if you sell it and there’s somebody that’s just living, basically, right up in the backyard?’”

The owner, who feared that Kevin would get “possessed” and “do some serious damage,” arrived at an agreement with Kevin obligating him to destroy [the house] within a month” of buying the farm.

Rob prompted Kevin on if he had “spent a night” in the abandoned house, but the Footloose star denied any interest in tampering with the supernatural.

“Not only did I not do that, but I went up there and there were some beautiful old pine boards and a banister and I said to [my wife] Kyra [Sedgwick], ‘We’ve gotta take those out.’ And she’s like, ‘No you’re not. You’re not putting those f—king things in our house,’” he said.

Kevin Bacon also recently opened up about wanting to collaborate with a certain singer!
