House of nightmares sold after major renovation
The house in Los Angeles that became a symbol of horror for several generations of Americans, found a buyer after a major restoration.
The 250-square-meter mansion became known during the 1980s, when it became a scene for "A Nightmare on Elm Street." In 2008, the house was bought by real estate agent Angie Hill, who had the courage to acquire the dismal house. Hill paid 1.15 million dollars for the house and spent the next year renovating it, the Mail Online said.
At the time of the purchase, she said, the house looked like a nightmare indeed. "It was the only house on the street that looked so scruffy. It seemed that nobody has cleaned the pool for ten years - it was black," Hill said.
The enterprising woman managed to turn a house of horror into the house of dreams. She completely re-designed the interior, having fused the traditional style with high-tech. Now the house has three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a guest house. The new owner's name has not been disclosed, but it was said that the buyer paid 2.1 million dollars during the first week, after the house was put up for sale.
