The selling price of the iconic home from A Nightmare On Elm Street has been slashed Freddy Kruger-style.

Built in 1999, the charming Los Angeles home was sold for $2,980,000 (£2,174,357) according to a Tuesday report from TMZ.

The three bedroom home is extremely different to what was featured in the hit 1984 slasher film, seen in pictures which advertised the upgraded property which was originally on the market for

Once boarded up windows and desecrated garden seen in the film are long gone leaving what looks like it could be anybody's dream home.

In the living room, French doors allow for plenty of natural light and access to the garden.

A spacious bedroom in the property features walnut floors and ceiling lights.

Photos also show several of the four bathrooms, with one standing out with all-white interior.

A massive bath sits at the edge of the room alongside his and her sinks situated under a wide mirror.

The garden is equally as beautiful with well-kept grass surrounding a pool.

A lavish guesthouse sits out the back of the property.

In a spooky advertisement for the property, a model dressed as the iconic killer can be seen making himself at home around the renovated house in the listing.

It was originally stated that they would be accepting offers on the home until midnight on Halloween, but the offers weren't quite up to the standard the homeowners expected, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"The façade is iconic, but the ties to the movie stop as soon as you walk through the front door. Inside, it’s a beautiful traditional-style space with a modern twist," Douglas Elliman's Heather T. Roy, who holds the property listing with Learka Bosnak, told the Los Angeles Times.

Lorene Scafaria, Hustlers and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World director, purchased the home in 2013 for $2.1 million (£1.5m).

Angie Hill purchased the house in 2008 for $1.15 million and spent a year renovating the property.

Before this dramatic makeover, the home had great resemblance to the decaying house in Freddy's dream world.

"It was horrible," Hill said. "It was the only house on the street that looked beaten up.

"The pool looked like it hadn't been touched in 10 years – it was black."

The previous homeowner added that it had "the weirdest vibe" and that you could "feel the weird energy."

On top of that she claims there "was a really oppressive odour".

So she took it upon herself to burn sage to attempt to rid the property of bad energy, and then completely dismantled the house.

Around ninety percent of the entire home was replaced, from the walls, ceilings and even the roof.

Although she never found Freddie Krueger in the property, Hill claims she still got scared sometimes.

"I used to be afraid to go in the basement," she said.
