The “Nightmare on Elm Street” House Is on the Market for $3.2M, and It’s Scary Beautiful Inside
After “The Conjuring” house hit the market last month, another horror movie house followed in its footsteps — thankfully, this one isn’t haunted. The Dutch Colonial home with the green shingles and bright red (now black) front door from the 1984 Wes Craven classic, “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” is on sale for $3.2 million.
Located on 1428 N Genesee Avenue in Los Angeles (known as 1428 Elm Street in the slasher film), the interior of the 2,700-square-foot house has a chic, modern feel. It has three bedrooms and five bathrooms spread out over two stories, with walnut floors throughout and elegant archways linking rooms. Each bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, and there are several rooms that would make a great at-home office.
The house is filled with light, thanks to picture windows and countless French doors. There are patios and terraces built into the house for lounging and enjoying the fresh air and landscaped grounds without having to actually step foot outside of the house.
In the backyard, there’s a pool, citrus trees, and lush grass for sitting out and enjoying beautiful Southern California days. There’s also a charming guest house adjacent to the pool with a pergola covered patio and an elegant bathroom that looks straight out of a fancy hotel.
While the house was built in 1919, the real estate listing notes that the elegant, traditional home was reimagined by an English designer in the mid-2000s, which explains the modern touches.
Offers from potential buyers are due by midnight on Halloween (makes sense, given its cinematic history). The real estate agents selling the house told the Los Angeles Times that they will be handing out candy to trick-or-treaters at the house on Halloween.
