According to Mansion Global, the house from the movie “A Nightmare on Elm Street” has officially been sold for $2.98 million. The three-bedroom, four-bathroom building was put up for sale at the end of October 2021. Then the value of the property was $ 3.25 million, and the accompanying photos showed the figure of Freddy Krueger in the bathroom. The start of sales was timed to coincide with Halloween, but, apparently, the festive auction was not successful, because later the house was put up for sale again. In December, the price was reduced to $2.99 million.
In the 1984 horror film, Nancy Thompson, the heroine of Heather Langenkamp, lived in this house. In fact, the owners of the mansion recently were Lorin Scafaria (screenwriter and director of such films as “Strippers” and “Looking for a friend at the end of the world”) and her partner comedian Bo Burnham. By the way, Burnham shot his 2021 Inside single for Netflix here in the guest house, thereby adding to the Hollywood legacy of the house. The couple bought the mansion at the beginning of their relationship in 2013 and paid $2.1 million for it.
Freddy Krueger was also involved in marketing purposes.

The 250 m2 house was built in 1919 in the colonial style, in the mid-2000s it was renovated, the interiors were updated, but the references to the retro style were preserved. So, some doorways have an arched shape — a simple but spectacular detail that gives the mansion charm. Adjacent to the master bedroom are not only a bathroom and two walk-in closets, but also a recessed balcony overlooking the backyard. In the backyard there is a swimming pool and the self-catering guest house mentioned above. And although in the movie house No. 1428 was located in the city of Springwood, Ohio, in fact it is located in a small area of Los Angeles.
