Nightmare on Elm Street house listed for a killer $3.25 million

The iconic home from A Nightmare on Elm Street can now be yours for $3,250,000.

The charming three bedroom home located in Los Angeles‘ Spaulding Square neighborhood is a far cry from the shambled property featured in the hit 1984 slasher film in pictures advertising the upgraded home.

The Dutch Colonial-style home built in 1919 will be accepting offers until midnight on Halloween, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Long gone are the boarded up windows and shambled garden as seen in the film. Now, the two story property is more like a dream.

Photos of the inviting home showcase the property’s spacious kitchen with modern, orange-topped island counter sitting beneath an array of stylish metallic lamps.

The living room is equally as inviting with French doors allowing for plenty of natural light and access to the backyard.

In terms of the sleeping arrangements, photos showcase a spacious bedroom with ceiling lights and walnut floors adding a chic touch.

Pictures also capture several of the four bathrooms, including one particularly impressive one with a chic all-white interior.

A massive tub sits near the edge of the room while his and her sinks face a wide mirror on the countertop.

The backyard is equally as stunning with a well-manicured yard of grass surrounding a pool.

Guests of the future homeowner will be able to rest in seclusion thanks to a quaint guesthouse located by the pool.

Not even Freddy Krueger could resist returning to the home in photos of the house.

‘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,’ Douglas Elliman’s Heather T. Roy, who holds the property listing with Learka Bosnak, told the Los Angeles Times. 

Hustlers and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World director Lorene Scafaria purchased the home in 2013 for $2.1 million, but a prior owner recalled the home’s creepy energy not long after purchasing it several years prior.

Angie Hill purchased the house in 2008 for $1.15 million and spent a year renovating the property.

Initially, the home bore a greater resemblance to the decrepit and decaying version in Freddy’s dream world than the original sunny suburban home that shows up in the early films.

‘It was horrible,’ Hill said. ‘It was the only house on the street that looked beaten up…. The pool looked like it hadn’t been touched in 10 years – it was black.’

‘It had the weirdest vibe,’ Hill said. ‘You could feel the weird energy. There was a really oppressive odor.’

So she burned some sage to get ready of the bad energy, and then completely dismantled the property.

First, she burned sage to clear the energy in the house, she said. Then, she took apart 90 percent of the entire home – walls, ceilings, the roof – and replaced them.

She admits, the home’s fictional history of horror had a very real effect on her.

Although there was no nightmare villain hanging out in the property, it still gave Hill the creeps.

‘I used to be afraid to go in the basement,’ she said.
