A house that was featured in Tim Burton’s iconic 1990 romance film “Edward Scissorhands” has landed on the real estate market in Lutz, Florida, for $699,900.
No, it’s not the Gothic mansion where the title character, played by Johnny Depp, sulks about, but rather the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house where the Bogg family lives.
“The iconic house from the movie ‘Edward Scissorhands’ is on the market once again!” the listing on Realtor.com says. “Also known as The Boggs’ house or the Avon Lady’s house, it offers a rare opportunity to live on a nostalgic movie set. The owner restored this home back to the beautiful Victorian crafted and whimsical movie set quality on the exterior.”
According to Creative Loafing Tampa Bay, the house was purchased in 2020 for $230,000 by Joey Licalzi in 2020, who referred to it as a “running theme park.”
So why is he selling a part of Hollywood history?
“It’s honestly killing him to sell the house,” listing agent Megan Hartnell told Creative Loafing. “They have twin grandbabies on the way, and they need a bigger place. He would love for it to stay as a museum, but at the same time, he understands that it might not happen.”
Memorabilia from the movie, which also starred Winona Ryder, Dianne Wiest and Vincent Price in his last theatrical release, is scattered throughout the home’s 1,432 square feet along with some other amenities including:
And yes, the house comes with all the memorabilia, according to Creative Loafing.
The plot of “Scissorhands” revolves around a humanoid named Edward, whose inventor dies before giving him hands so he has to live with scissor blades instead. Edward is taken in by a family after Peg Bogg (Wiest), an Avon saleswoman, finds him living alone in the secluded mansion of his late inventor.
Lutz is about 15 miles north of downtown Tampa.
