Emeralds by Night
Living Houses are houses that have awakened to some measure of sentience and gone mad in the process. Avery Blackwell discovered this was a naturally-occurring phenomena when he scryed back to the origins of the house by the Ben Lomond.
This house attempted to compel and consume Avery as it had many other humans over the years. In addition to a telepathic lure, it also created inviting smells like baking that one might find in a home, and was able to manifest both a tongue and a third story not visible from the outside, presumably where digestion happens.
Ultimately Avery was able to negotiate his own release so that his comrades didn't burn the place down, and Amanda erected a fear ward to keep human beings away… though the house may still burn.
