For those who are fans of the “Halloween” franchise, this is your chance to get your hands on a piece of horror cinema history because the house that was featured as Michael Myers’ childhood home in “Halloween 5” is now listed for sale. Located in Salt Lake City, Utah, the home has 10 bedrooms and is more than 7,300 square feet. The house is currently listed for the price of $950,000.
The listing reads as follows:
“This Victorian estate is one of the Avenues’ historic masterpieces. It was designed by renowned architect Frederick Albert Hale, who also designed the original Salt Lake City Public Library as well as the Alta Club, the Eagles Club, and other iconic private and public structures. It’s one of those lovely, well-built homes with high ceilings, large solid-wood doors, stained-glass windows, intricate woodwork, and custom hardware, and it sits on a .39-acre corner lot in the coveted Avenues neighborhood.”Coldwell Banker Realty
Although the home presented in the film was much darker, the house is currently much more colorful, with pink and green paint on the exterior and bright colors in the interior to match. The house was built in 1886 and was previously remodeled in 1980. The listing also warns that the house still needs some work, despite the large asking price.
“While this home has great bones, it has had its share of wear and tear over the years and needs some work. It has the potential to be a stunning remodel or could also serve as a profitable investment since it is located on a beautiful tree-lined street near the University of Utah, hospitals, downtown, the airport, world-class ski resorts, hiking and biking trails, schools, shopping, and more.”Coldwell Banker Realty
“Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers” released in 1989, centers on Michael Myers and takes place after “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers.” After lying in a coma Michael soon awakens and makes his way back to his hometown Haddonfield with the internet of killing his niece, Jamie (Danielle Harris), who now shares a psychic link with her uncle.
Although not stated in the listing, the house was indeed featured in the fifth segment of the Halloween franchise. For more photos, check out the listing via Coldwell Banker Realty here.
