The selling price of the iconic home from A Nightmare On Elm Street was slashed and Freddie Kruger had nothing to do with it.
The charming Dutch Colonial-style home built in 1919 located in Los Angeles’ Spaulding Square neighborhood was sold for $2,980,000 according to a Tuesday report from TMZ.
The three bedroom home is obviously a far cry from the shambled property featured in the hit 1984 slasher film as shown in pictures which advertised the upgraded home which was originally put on the market for $3.25million.

Long gone are the boarded up windows and shambled garden as seen in the film. Now, the two story property is more like a dream.
Photos by Anthony Barcelo showcase the property’s spacious kitchen with modern, orange-topped island counter sitting beneath an array of stylish metallic lamps.
The living room is equally as inviting with French doors allowing for plenty of natural light and access to the backyard.
In terms of the sleeping arrangements, photos showcase a spacious bedroom with ceiling lights and walnut floors adding a chic touch.

It was originally stated that they would be accepting offers until midnight on Halloween, according to the Los Angeles Times at the time but obviously the offers weren’t quite what the homeowners had expected.

‘The façade is iconic, but the ties to the movie stop as soon as you walk through the front door. Inside, it’s a beautiful traditional-style space with a modern twist,’ Douglas Elliman’s Heather T. Roy, who holds the property listing with Learka Bosnak, told the Los Angeles Times.
Hustlers and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World director Lorene Scafaria purchased the home in 2013 for $2.1 million, but a prior owner recalled the home’s creepy energy not long after purchasing it several years prior.
Angie Hill purchased the house in 2008 for $1.15 million and spent a year renovating the property.
Initially, the home bore a greater resemblance to the decrepit and decaying version in Freddy’s dream world than the original sunny suburban home that shows up in the early films.

‘It was horrible,’ Hill said. ‘It was the only house on the street that looked beaten up…. The pool looked like it hadn’t been touched in 10 years – it was black.’
‘It had the weirdest vibe,’ Hill said. ‘You could feel the weird energy. There was a really oppressive odor.’
So she burned some sage to get ready of the bad energy, and then completely dismantled the property.
First, she burned sage to clear the energy in the house, she said. Then, she took apart 90 percent of the entire home – walls, ceilings, the roof – and replaced them.
She admits, the home’s fictional history of horror had a very real effect on her.
Although there was no nightmare villain hanging out in the property, it still gave Hill the creeps.
‘I used to be afraid to go in the basement,’ she said.
