Jamie Lee Curtis’s Halloween House Sells for $1.7 Million


While the epic showdown between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode (portrayed by Jamie Lee Curtis) paints the abode from the 1978 slasher Halloween out to be a house of horrors, the real home is quite far from it. In fact, the dwelling that served as a filming location for the flick has just sold for right under $1.7 million, according to TMZ. Built in 1906, the South Pasadena, California, residence hit the market in September for $1.8 million. The classic film follows Strode as she fends off a maniacal masked villain in the fictitious town of Haddonfield, Illinois, and begins a blockbuster franchise of 13 films that drew in a massive fanbase.

The real-life house sits on a 5,258-square-foot piece of property divided into three separate units. The first and largest of the three apartments features a spacious one-bedroom suite and a large, inviting porch, as well as a dining room, pantry, utility room, and basement. The second unit in the home comes complete with three bedrooms and one bathroom, while the third unit houses one bedroom and one bathroom. Each unit is equipped with a kitchen and living space as well as picturesque windows that offer lovely views of the quaint neighborhood. While the abode’s interiors aren’t exactly modern, fans of the franchise will see the charm in its somewhat dated style and perhaps even find there’s an uncanny sense of familiarity throughout the pad.

Amenities include a two-car garage—which has the potential to be converted into an ADU—as well as a communal laundry room. Surrounded by the greenery of Pasadena’s Library/Mission West district, there’s a shared river rock patio and an avocado tree right outside. The home had been in the same family for three generations.

Agents Heidi Babcock and Andrea Marcum-Valentine of eXp Realty held the listing.
