It has three bedrooms, four bathrooms and is the setting for one of the most famous horror films of all time.

The house featured in the 1984 classic, A Nightmare on Elm Street, is up for sale, but the only nightmares patrons might have is footing the bill: it is listed for A$4.35 million.

The house, at Spaulding Square in Los Angeles, is described as “a beautiful Dutch Colonial with a modern twist”, in its listing by Douglas Elliman.

It has two storeys with walnut flooring and bright windows.

“Highlights include an open, retro-modern kitchen, beautiful built-ins, a grand primary suite, bathrooms en suite to every bedroom, separate laundry room, and multiple work from home options,” the listing reads.

“Patios, terraces, picture windows and countless French doors, maximise the use of the gorgeous grounds. Blue pool, green grass and fragrant citrus trees draw you out and make this an effortless example of the best of indoor-outdoor Southern California living.”

It also has a detached guest house. The listing claims cinephiles will immediately recognise director “Wes Craven's iconic Elm Street facade”. It was also used in a number of other iconic films and TV commercials.

The Conjuring house also up for sale

For other horror buffs and for those intrigued by the real estate market which is admittedly fairly scary these days, a house which inspired The Conjuring film series also went up for sale earlier this year.

The listing on realtor Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty claims the home, in Rhode Island, is “an extraordinary piece of cultural history”.

It is also purportedly haunted.

The movie wasn’t filmed at the home, but was based on the experiences of the Perron family that lived there in the 1970s.

“Rumoured to be haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who in the 1800’s lived in the house, 1677 Round Top Road is one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States,” the listing reads.

“The chilling stories from this house have inspired dozens of books and movies. Many qualified paranormal researchers have been invited into the home — most famously Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded the oldest ghost hunting team in New England, and in the 1970’s were hired to rid the home of its evil.”
