The world just took over Stranger Things season four on Netflix, an epic, suspenseful two-part series that pits the kids against Eternal, the show’s worst villain yet. But remember those early days of the show when Joyce used Christmas lights to communicate with her missing son and Eleven and the gang only had one Demogorgon to contend with?
This may take you back: The Byers’ house, seen in early seasons of the show, is a real home in Fayetteville, Georgia, and it’s now for sale. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home is listed on Zillow for $300,000 (about £266,119, AU$452,352) and “makes a PERFECT Airbnb, short-term rental or personal residence for someone willing to take over,” according to the listing. You will need to provide your own DIY baseball bat.
The home appears at least five separate times in the show’s first episode — twice in Season 1, Episode 4 — and also makes some appearances in Seasons 2 and 3, according to the list.
The one-story home is conveniently located in a wooded area. The Zillow listing includes images of the exterior and interior along with the same photos with an eerie pink tint… and some creepy figures looming around. “Don’t get stuck in reverse though,” the listing says. “This home really needs a complete rehab.”
According to the listing, fans continue to show up “almost daily” for a peek inside Will, Joyce and Jonathan’s home. “The owners had to barricade the driveway and put up private property signs just to keep people from trespassing,” the listing says. But the real question is, did it keep the demogorgons away?
Stranger Things is expected to debut on Netflix in 2016 finish your story for good in the next season. While time is running out on the beloved fantasy series, you can still spend forever at the Byers’ house. (Or if you happen to live near Durham, North Carolina, this fan experience won’t run you $300K.)
