1, 2, Freddy's coming for you. 3, 4, better lock your door. Or you could make an appointment to open the door of the A Nightmare on Elm Street house in West Hollywood. The site where Freddy Krueger first stalked the nightmares of teenagers in 1984, then again in 1985 (Freddy's Revenge) and 1994 (Wes Craven's New Nightmare), still remains recognizable to fans and has hit the market for $2.1 million.
The interior of the "spectacular traditional/modernist fusion" three-bedroom Spaulding Square home was extensively renovated in 2006, but the facade still looks like it did in the fictional Midwestern town of Springwood, Ohio.
Listed on Redfin, the 2,700-square-foot 1919 property at 1428 North Genesee Avenue doesn't sound so scary, "situated mid-block on a picturesque tree-lined street" with a solar heated pool, garden and guest house. It actually sounds quite dreamy. And we've always had a thing for Creamsicle kitchens.
The Hollywood home featured in the 1984 slasher classic “A Nightmare on Elm Street” has sold for its listing price of $2.1 million.
Bearing a signature red door as the two-story did during its days as a Freddy Krueger haunt, the now-updated 1919 traditional-style house features a classic center hallway, an open plan kitchen and family room, wide-plank wood floors, three bedrooms, 3½ bathrooms and 2,700 square feet of living space.
There also are a guest house and a swimming pool on the property, which last sold in 2006 for $1.15 million. Theodore R. Fleming and Peter Maurice of Rodeo Realty were the listing agents. Heather T. Roy and Learka Bosnak of Teles Properties represented the buyer.
