The house from Nightmare on Elm Street is now someone’s dream home.
The charming, three-bedroom Dutch Colonial house in the Spaulding Square neighborhood has sold for $2,980,000. The 2,700-square-foot abode went on the market this past Halloween, with an original asking price of $3.5 million.
The house at 1419 Genessee Ave. is better known to horror movie fans as 1428 Elm Street, the setting of the original film and an important locale in many of the sequels. In the movies, the house belonged to original teenage protagonist Nancy Thompson, whose parents burned Freddy Krueger alive and hid his knife-fingered glove in the home’s basement. Starting with A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, the undead Freddy used the house as a sort of pied-à-terre in his nightmare dimension.
Scary fact: The selling price is nearly three times what it cost to make the original movie ($1.1 million) in 1984.
