Wes Anderson’s film “The Royal Tenenbaums” is about ambitious siblings fallen from grace when they return to the home they grew up in — which, in pure Wes Anderson fashion, is as eccentric and layered as its characters. The property is currently up for rent for $20,000 per month, but if you’re looking to move into the Wes Anderson cinematic universe at a cheaper rate, Airbnb is letting two lucky fans stay there for close to nothing.

Located in Hamilton Heights in Harlem, NY, the four-story historic home is soon going to be available to book on Airbnb for $20. In “The Royal Tenenbaums,” everything in and around the New York home is quirky, symmetrical, slightly saturated, and suited for the prodigal Tenenbaum children. While the Harlem house may not look as eccentric in real life, it still looks as luxurious as ever.

Measuring in at over 6,000 square feet, the property is complete with a formal living and dining room, chef’s kitchen, and grand foyer. There’s one bedroom with a queen-sized bed and two bathrooms, so you and your guest can have your own.

The mansion is filled with beautiful design details, too. “Special touches like original stained glass windows, decorative woodwork, gas-operated fireplaces, and fully modernized bathrooms will let guests experience the best of both past and present,” says the release for the special booking event.

If and when you’d like to explore the surrounding Hamilton Heights neighborhood, the listing says there are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Additionally, it’s situated between Riverside Park and Riverbank State Park, so you can lay out if it ends up being a nice day.

The booking will open on May 26 at 12 p.m. ET on the Airbnb listing for the chance to live like the Tenenbaums for two nights, May 29 and 30. (Memorial Day weekend plans, anyone?)
