The House from ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ Lists with a Halloween Offer Deadline

This Dutch Colonial-style home’s façade was used to film A Nightmare on Elm Street, one of the most famous horror movies in film history. Fictionally known as 1428 Elm Street, the Los Angeles house may have inspired fear in the 1984 classic, but in reality, it has an endearing aura. Now on the market for $3.25 million, the home carries its historic value with a modernized flair. And, the deadline to make offers on it expires after midnight PST on October 31st.

Listing agents Heather T. Roy and Learka Bosnak of Douglas Elliman shared, “With the inventory shortage in our market, offer deadlines have become really common. Sometimes it’s helpful, sometimes it adds to agents’ and buyers’ stress, sometimes both but never fun. We were very excited to have an opportunity to make a deadline fun.” Indeed, the Halloween night cutoff adds a festive feel to house-hunting here.

Whether you are a horror movie fan or not, the circa-1919 abode is more than just a Hollywood film location. Today, its airy open-floor plan is flooded with natural light. Reimagined by an English designer, the elegance of the beautiful archways and modern layout build a beautiful transitional atmosphere.

The 3-bedroom and 3.5-bathroom main house features constant views of the serene landscaping. Far from scary, the property includes a balcony, expansive patio and other terraces to relax on. Next to the pool, a detached guesthouse has its own pergola-covered patio, kitchen, and designer bathroom.

For those seeking a new home in LA this spooky season, 1428 North Genesee Avenue might be the best treat. Meanwhile, on the east coast, the haunted house that inspired The Conjuring is also on the market.
