‘American Horror Story’ Star Gets KILLED on House Sale … Loses $1 Million

exclusive 0817_morris_chestnut_house_sold_launchAmerican Horror Story” star Morris Chestnut is in real-estate HELL … he just unloaded his Hidden Hills, CA home, and got screwed out of a million bucks in the process.

The 43-year-old actor bought the 5,522 square-foot digs back in 2007 for a whopping $3.3 million.

It must have seemed like a good investment at the time — 6-bedrooms, 7-baths, horse stables, a giant pool … tennis courts … fruit trees … the whole nine yards.

Fast forward to Jan 2011 … Chestnut tried to sell off the estate for $3 million, but no cigar.  He finally managed to unload it in July 2012 … but for a mere $2.3 million, aka a 7-figure screw job.
