Who best to show off the iconic “Nightmare on Elm Street” house than Freddy Krueger himself? You can spot him throughout listing photos of the home used in the famed 1984 horror flick.
A costumed Freddy Krueger can be seen throughout the listing photos around the home, such as working from the home office, lounging near the pool, haunting the bathtub, and more.
The home made famous by appearing in the movie “Nightmare on Elm Street” is for sale, and the listing agents—Heather T. Roy and Learka Bosnak of Douglas Elliman—are reminding potential buyers this isn’t just an ordinary home. They are accepting offers on the $3.25 million home until midnight on Halloween. The real estate professionals say they’ll be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.
The exterior of the home, built in 1919, still looks much as it did in the movie. The movie was set in the fictitious town of Springwood, Ohio, but the home is actually located in the Spaulding Square neighborhood in Los Angeles.
“The facade is iconic, but the ties to the movie stop as soon as you walk through the front door,” Roy told the Los Angeles Times. “Inside, it’s a beautiful, traditional-style space with a modern twist.”
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom home features contemporary white walls and walnut floors, terraces, patios, a swimming pool, and a guest house. The home was last purchased in 2013 for $2.1 million by Lorene Scafaria, the writer and director of the 2019 film “Hustlers.”
