THE Perth house where David and Catherine Birnie lived during their 1980s killing spree in suburban Perth is up for sale.

The Birnies raped five women and murdered four, with two of them killed at the property.

The murders came to be known by the media as the Moorhouse murders – named after the street the Birnies were living on.

The house has an open plan kitchen and jarrah flooring throughout.

According to the listing, the house is “located in a leafy street so close to all amenities”.

“This darling house offers style as well as convenience,” according to the agent.

However, none of the victims were buried at the property.
