The House That Freddy Built

If you’re a fan of the Nightmare on Elm Street films and happen to have an extra $2.1million in your bank account, you could own the ultimate piece of Freddy Krueger memorabilia. The original Hollywood house that was used as the home of Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) in A Nightmare on Elm Street is currently for sale and looks more fabulous than ever before. The home’s current owner purchased the iconic house back in 2006 and spent over a year on a complete renovation. Head over to Curbed LA to get a rare peek inside the house where we were first warned, “Whatever you do, don’t fall asleep.”
