Did you watch the latest season of Stranger Things and think: ‘ooh, that’s a nice house’?
Probably not. You might have been a bit distracted by all the death and 80s outfits.
But if you did happen to notice the property in the show, and could see yourself living there (not in Hawkins or the Upside Down, don’t stress), we have some exciting news for you.
The house lived in by Victor Creel – the old man who gouged his own eyes out – in Stranger Things is now on the market for $1.5million.
Yes, that’s a little pricey, but the house is also rather lovely.
It’s a 6,000 sq ft house that sits on East Second Avenue in Rome, Georgia, built back in 1992 by Colonel Hamilton Yancey and originally called the Claremont House.
Its current owners bought it in 2019 and restored it to its ‘original grandeur’, with handcrafted built-in bookshelves, Victorian-style cabinets, and intricate moldings.
Now, they’re putting it up for sale once again.
‘You will recognize much of what has been prominently featured in the show’s fourth season,’ Realtor Jeb Arp, of Toles, Temple & Wright, writes on the listing, noting ‘the majestic formal dining room where telekinesis is no longer practiced during meals; an adjoining parlor, perfect for playing Dungeons and Dragons; and a living room ideal for hosting meetings of the Hellfire Club.’
Despite not having a portal to the Upside Down, the home does have some cool features, such as a large wall safe and a cast iron urinal.
Enter through a hefty wooden door and you’ll be greeted by a grand staircase and chandelier, dark wooden floors, an antique mirror, and a small fireplace and desk area under the stairs (a home office, perhaps?).
On the ground floor is a living room and a piano room, complete with another chandelier.
Then there’s the dining room, with a large table and old photos decking the walls, plus a home bar, with a tropical print backsplash.
The kitchen is glorious, with a 15ft long island complete with a black marble countertop. We’re big fans of the dark green cabinets and the pantry, which has a wet bar and ice maker.
There are a whopping seven bedrooms, all with stunning antique bedframes and dark paneling, and seven bathrooms.
If you were to buy this place, you’d likely love sitting in front of the fireplace reading a good book (or watching a Netflix show, perhaps) and wandering around the large gardens.
You might also enjoy knowing that just five miles away are the Ford Buildings at Berry College, which acted as the Pennhurst Mental Hospital in Stranger Things.
‘Don’t be surprised if you find some residual demogorgons skulking about the property,’ reads the listing. ‘In the event that things get too strange and even go awry, a funeral home is located nearby.
‘Lightyears away from the Upside Down, the home, with its splendor and grand modernization, awaits her next stewards.
‘An unparalleled provenance and pop culture pedigree translate to a one-of-a-kind opportunity that won’t last long. Time is of the essence.
‘So if you’re thinking about running up that hill to make the deal to become the next owners of this magnificent dwelling, don’t let the grandfather clock chime even once. Offers reviewed November 30.’
