The Goonies movie house in Oregon hit the market at 1.65 million
19 November, 2022
The house where the plot of the 1985 movie The Goonies unfolds is located in Oregon and has been a source of admiration from fans ever since. Now, the property is being offered for sale for $1.65 million.
Built in 1896, the two-story Victorian home has panoramic views of the Pacific Northwest coastline, as depicted in the film directed by Richard Donner and produced by Steven Spielberg.
A real treasure for movie fans
Thirty-seven years after the film's release, this famous home is still in pristine condition, and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is located in the town of Astoria, Oregon,and is currently owned by Jordan Miller of John L. Scott Real Estate. The film's story was written by Chris Columbus, who years later would become the director of the first two films in the Harry Potter saga. It starred Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings) and Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame).
It has become a tourist destination
The home features white wood siding with rust trim, a wrap-around porch with deck and panoramic views, plus it has hardwood floors and a fully equipped kitchen.
In 2015, the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce estimated that between 12,000 and 15,000 people visited the house during The Goondocks, an annual celebration of the film.
That year Sandi Preston was its owner, who admitted she bought the house as a fan of the film and frequently welcomed other moviegoers to visit, but such was the number of people visiting that she asked the city for support to keep fans off her property.
