Freddy Krueger haunted this house — and it just sold for nearly $3 million

Do not let the warm exterior fool you — scary fans understand this house well. It’s a brilliant area of the dubious, tree-lined Elm Street and, most significantly, the searching ground for one striped sweater-wearing killer.

Or it was, as the centerpiece of the hit “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Freddy Krueger haunted this house in the initial movie, attacking a young Thompson’s dreams, though off-camera, it came from Los Angeles suburbanites and a minimum of one filmmaker.

And now, it’s been offered a brand-new life once again — the renowned house simply cost almost $3 million, according to, where the house was noted. (And, according to the website, that has to do with 98% more costly than neighboring houses, a stat that would alarm even Freddy.)
The three-bedroom Dutch Colonial got a significant facelift in the years because Wes Craven’s 1984 movie was launched, though its outside stayed the very same. However the remainder of the house was “reimagined by an English designer in the mid-2000s,” so it’s brighter, whiter and airier than the popular motion picture beast would’ve liked. All egregiously ’80s flourishes have been replaced — and the door, once blood-red, is now painted a stately black.
The house from 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' is for sale -- if you have the guts to buy it
The house used to belong to “Hustlers” director Lorene Scafaria, who bought it in 2013, according to the Los Angeles Times. It originally hit the market in the fall at $3.25 million, and, in a nod to the house’s cinematic history, deals were due by midnight on Halloween, the California paper reported.
And everything comes with a visitor home, one that fans of comic Bo Burnham may acknowledge as the setting of his well-known unique, “Inside.” Burnham in the small house throughout the pandemic to produce the claustrophobic work, though it looks much less enormous in noting pictures.
