The famous Byers family home, the original home that featured as a centerpiece in the early seasons of stranger thingsis now available on the real estate market.
Located in Fayetteville, Georgia, the six-acre property is represented by Michael Smith of EXP Realty, LLC and is listed for $300,000. Built in 1900, the property has three bedrooms and two bathrooms but, as the listing states, “don’t get stuck upside down, this home needs a complete overhaul”. While the famed home’s asking price seems high given the renovation requirement, the listing also states that “with the right owner, the potential return on investment (ROI) could be HUGE!”
A one-of-a-kind house
Since stranger things premiered in 2016, fans of the hit Netflix show frequently visited the site where some of the show’s scariest events were known to have taken place, especially in season 1. According to the listing, the site receives so much of visitors “that the owners had to put up a barricade in the driveway and ‘Private Property’ signs just to keep people out, so it goes without saying that the house gets a ton of attention.” With that popularity in mind, the listing insinuates that the property would make “for a PERFECT Airbnb [or] short-term rental.”
Real estate “collectibles” of this type are not uncommon and in recent years have become increasingly sought after. The Edward Scissorhands The home went on sale in March 2022 for $700,000, with owner Joey Klopps renovating the space to look more like the movie. In 2021, the infamous haunted house that inspired Conspiracy the film franchise was also available for purchase.
Mega-fans of stranger things may find this list even more enticing given that production on the fifth and final season of the global phenomenon has already begun. With plenty of storylines yet to be tied into Season 5, executive producer Shawn Levy has already commented on the huge demand online for a return of fan favorite Eddie Munson. While many fans, including critics, were heartbroken by Munson’s disappearance at the end of Season 4, Levy confirmed that the metal boss Dungeon Master’s return was unlikely.
With the end in sight, co-creators Ross and Matt Duffer, aka the Duffer Brothers, recently unveiled their plans for Stranger Things’ related fallout. Although the idea would be for the spinoff to be set in the same universe as Netflix’s sci-fi/horror series, Ross Duffer indicated that it would be different enough from the original series and added, “I think we we have something that could be quite exciting. So we’ll see.”
