Buying a new house is never an easy undertaking. With prices skyrocketing, you really have to determine what features are essential before taking the plunge. For those who absolutely demand the companionship of a sadistic dream killer, the house for you just hit the market. 29 years ago, 1428 Elm St. was ground zero for a series of attacks by Freddy Krueger, the blade-clawed burn victim who brutalized his victims in their sleep. While the real home is on North Genesee Ave.—A Nightmare on North Genesee Ave. just didn’t have the same ring to it—both incarnations share an address number and a spookily symmetrical facade.
After falling into disrepair, the home underwent major renovations in 2006. However, as the new photos on Curbed make clear, this residence is still recognizable as the house where Nancy Thompson was driven to the brink of madness, which improves the chances that Freddy will be able to locate your family—should you scrape together the $2.1 million the owners are asking for.
Scare Tactic‘s Alexandra West recently attempted to get to the bottom of the home’s significance in the series. As she explains, Freddy’s connection to the house continued long after the Thompsons moved elsewhere. This suggests that future visits are likely, making this charming residence a no-brainer for wealthy, reckless Krueger enthusiasts. Still, it’s not clear which Freddy will haunt your family’s nightmares, the mischievous old school one (Robert Englund) or the Clint Eastwood-sounding dude with the extra gross face (Jackie Earle Haley). Make a bid and maybe you’ll find out.
