'A Nightmare on Elm Street' House Hits Market for $2.1 Million (House of the Day)
The home once featured in the 1984 cult slasher flick "A Nightmare on Elm Street" has just hit the market for $2.1 million. But don't worry, potential buyers, you've got nothing to be afraid of. The home (which is on North Genesee Avenue in Los Angeles, not Elm Street in the movie's fictional Springwood, Ohio) is ultra-hip and looks anything but terrifying.
The traditional/modernist fusion-style home boasts glossy walnut floors, arched entries, a chef's kitchen, luxe master suite with floor-to-ceiling tile and a spa tub, and a stunning pool and garden. But it wasn't always so sleek -- in fact, it started out as a real nightmare for current owner Angie Hill. Twenty-two years after the filming of "A Nightmare on Elm Street," the famous home had fallen into disarray. Hill scooped it up in 2006, but by then, it was decrepit. (See the home's jaw-dropping transformation in the gallery below.)
"It was horrible," Hill told AOL Real Estate in October, referring to the condition of the home when she bought it in 2006. "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." Hill then proceeded to completely gut the home, replacing "every piece of wood," and even reconfiguring the entire floor plan. A nightmare on Elm Street? More like a dream!
