1984’s A Nightmare on Elm Street remains one of the most loved and critically acclaimed horror/slasher flicks of all time. It gave birth to an entire franchise and became an important part of pop culture in general. Now it seems the original house for the first film is up for sale.
According to Complex, the real-life house that made its first appearance in A Nightmare On Elm Street as Nancy Thompson’s home at 1428 Elm Street, is now up for sale. The house is currently up for sale for an asking price of $3.25 million.
Almost forty years after Freddy Krueger terrorized generations of people, the house has undergone numerous changes. Despite that, it still retains its classic green facade shingles.
“The whole neighborhood gets the tour bus treatment. People always get tickled when they see it,” Heather T. Roy, a representative from real estate company Douglas Elliman, said. “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.”
We will have to wait and see if any huge horror fan will end up purchasing this house so that they can relieve their dreams, or perhaps nightmares, featuring Freddy Krueger. Odds are not that many people will be willing to get into it anytime soon.
