TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — In response to a massively successful post on the social media website Redditinsisting that an ominous towerin Taoyuanis”infested with vampires,” the owner of theBaroque-style mansion currently being constructeddeniesthat his eccentric ediface is a haven for such undead, essence-draining entities.

The post, titled “There’s a 99% chance this place is infested with vampires,” was published on July 29, and in the four days since, it has garnered 58,200 up votes and 970 comments on the social media site. In response, the owner of the building, a 54-year-old man, who refuses to reveal his real name (like any self respecting vampire would)and instead goes by the surname Hsiao (), vehemently denied that his home was a Taiwanese version of Dracula’s Castle.

Count Mr. Hsiao said that he had spent seven and half years carefully constructing the intricately decorated apartment tower based on Baroque architecturehe had observedfrom his many travels toTransylvania Europe.

Hsiaosaid that he has alwaysloved European architecture and long dreamed of having his own Baroque-style home. Each floor covers an area of 50 Ping (a ping equals 3.3 square meters) and requires a great deal of time to fully decorate and furnish. In the future, Hsiao plans on themultimillion-dollarbuilding becominghis personal office and aguest house.

“Once again…welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring,” — Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”

Oddly enough, in the Google Street View of the spooky structure, a giant creepy hand can be seen protruding from a nail shop across the street:
