Hey you guuuyysssss! The Walsh family house from The Goonies is on the market. But unlike the movie, it’s not because of a potential foreclosure.
The home, located in Astoria, Oregon, is currently listed for $1.65 million and has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The official listing doesn’t have too many details and instead focuses on pictures of the restored interior, so we don’t know if it includes booby traps or a ceiling with a map to One-Eyed Willy’s treasure.
The current owner has been quite generous to fans over the years, but the house became an even more popular tourist attraction for Tumbling fans, sometimes to the point nuisance for the home owners and other residents. On its 30th anniversary in 2015, the house saw up to 1,000 visitors every day. It got to the point where the homeowner had to put tarps over parts of the home and put up a sign that said, “Access Closed to Tumbling House.”
Now that same homeowner wants to pass on the piece of movie history – and potentially a headache – to a new resident. While one Tumbling a sequel may never materialize, the new owner could at least film some scenes shot by shot. They could even walk down the road to the Oregon Film Museum, a former prison that served as a location.
Richard Donner’s The Goonies has grown as a cult classic, eventually being recognized as “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant” and worthy of preservation by the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.
The Goonies house isn’t the only pop culture-related abode to make the news lately. Earlier this month Vecna’s house from Stranger Things went on the market for DKK 1.5 million. There have also been updates regarding house from The chainsaw massacre in Texas.
