The Fall of the House of Usher

Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher"

How much of what happens at the end of the story is to be believed, and how much is in the narrator's imagination?

I think that is up to the reader. There are certainly gothic and supernatural elements to this story. If the reader can buy into the idea that Madeline is a zombie, than the reader should be able to believe in the ultimate collapse of the house and Roderick Usher.
