...7,8, better stay up late. 9, 10, location, location, location.
It was the house where iconic movie monster Freddy Krueger first infiltrated the nightmares of unsuspecting sleeping teens, but a Los Angeles real estate company hopes it will be a different kind of dream home for at least one brave buyer.
The three-bedroom, two-story "traditional/modernist fusion" home in Hollywood's Spaulding Square neighborhood may be better known to horror film buffs as the site of 1984's seminal slasher flick A Nightmare on Elm Street (as well as at least two sequels), but Rodeo Realty swears the scariest thing about this $2.1 million house is how reasonably priced it is.
Appropriately, the house which bares the same street number (1428) as its fictional counterpart was once a real-life nightmare for current homeowner Angie Hill.
The interior of the house underwent a total remodeling, with nearly every square inch gutted and redone.
Except the furnace in the basement where Hill keeps the dusty old bladed glove she lifted off a child murderer who used to live in the neighborhood until all the parents got together and burned him alive.
