A ‘dream’ house for some?

If you have a spare $3.25 million knocking about (that’s around £2.35 million in British sterling), you can purchase the lush Dutch colonial building and relocate to 1428 N Genesee Avenue in Los Angeles.

The house, which served as the establishing shot of Springwood, Ohio in the 1984 film, boasts three bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as other intriguing features that make it well worth its hefty asking price.

The picture perfect property also contains: “walnut floors weaving through archways and an open retro-modern kitchen, built-ins, a grand primary suite, bathrooms ensuite to every bedroom, separate laundry room, and multiple work from home options.”

And if that isn’t tempting enough, the property also has it’s very own guest house, with its own pergola covered patio, kitchen and designer-done bathroom.

Speaking about the impressive listing to the Los Angeles Times, Heather T. Roy of Douglas Elliman, who holds the listing with Learka Bosnak, said: “The whole neighbourhood gets the tour bus treatment. People always get tickled when they see it.

“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.”

The property is currently occupied by Lorene Scafaria — director of films such as Seeking a Friend for the End of the World and 2019’s Hustlers.

She bought the house back in 2013 for a cool $2.1 million (£1.5 million).

So if you’re looking to make an offer for this property? Be sure to get your requests in by midnight on Halloween to see if you can be in with a chance of buying.

A Nightmare On Elm Street made nightmarish slasher figure Freddy Krueger a horror film icon. The franchise has since spawned six sequels.
