Sometimes iconic movie locations are everyday places. I mean remember that the cabin Tony Stark owns in Endgame is actually an AirBnB that people can still rent to this day? Well, it seems that horror lovers now have a similar opportunity to be part of movie history but at a rather hefty price. Just $3.25 million or so.
As reported by the New York Post, the house that’s featured at the centre of horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street is up for sale for one lucky buyer. The house isn’t actually located on Elm Street, nor is it located in Ohio where the film is set. It’s actually all the way in Los Angeles on North Genesee Avenue. With a beautiful interior and three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a separate loo, this could be yours if you’re a multi-millionaire.
Of course, with the house coming up for sale in October, there is a Halloween theme to the entire thing. The pictures of the property you can see often include a cosplayer dressing up as Freddy Krueger. Additionally, all offers on the house have to be in by midnight on Halloween, which adds just a touch more flair to the entire thing.
The house isn’t only famous for its connection to A Nightmare On Elm Street, however - it was also bought back in 2013 by filmmaker Lorene Scafaria who wrote and directed 2019’s Hustlers. She also happens to be Bo Burnham’s partner huh. Back in 2013 though, the house cost $2.1 million so there has been a little added to the price since then.
Heather T. Roy from Douglas Elliman, the real estate agent selling the property, tells the LA Times: “The façade is iconic, but the ties to the movie stop as soon as you walk through the front door. Inside, it’s a beautiful traditional-style space with a modern twist.” And she’s right - although the outside still looks like it did in the horror flick, the interior is gorgeous. I can’t say I’d buy it as I’m not a multi-millionaire or want to be murdered in my sleep, but it’s surely perfect for someone.
