The house from A Nightmare On Elm Street is up for sale.

The property  — which can be found at 1428 N Genesee in Los Angeles, despite the film being set in Ohio  — was made famous by Wes Craven's 1984 horror classic, and it's on the market for US$3.25 million (S$4.37 mil).

As reported by Deadline, the two-story Dutch colonial home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms — including an en-suite for every bedroom — and walnut floors, plus an "open retro-modern kitchen", a "grand primary suite" and a separate laundry room.

The property also comes with a detached guest house with a covered patio, kitchen and designer bathroom.

The Nightmare on Elm Street starred Robert Englund as bogeyman Freddy Krueger, and the 74-year-old actor previously admitted playing the iconic horror villain transformed his life and his career.

Robert  — who also starred in the TV mini-series early in his career — explained: "I was lucky. I had the whole of the '70s playing best friends and sidekicks and then towards the end I was everybody's favourite redneck... I'd already been established in Holly-weird and knew who I was was.

"When I did Freddy, it just banged me into international actor overnight. I'd never had that kind of success before — it was like grabbing the ring on the merry-go-round, you know. I got it — I just hung on."

Robert admitted that new technologies have since helped to fuel the success of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise.

And due to the popularity of various spin-offs — including the sequels and a TV series — Robert now believes he's on his "third generation of fans".

Speaking on Michael Rosenbaum's Inside of You podcast in May, Robert said: "My career came of age during the video revolution. So, I had hit movies in the theatres and then they became hit films again when they came out on video for a whole other audience. But I had that times eight ... and that's not counting the TV series.

"And not only do I have that times eight, but then I have it again with DVD and Blu-ray and cable and marathons on cable. So you get a new generation — I'm on my third generation of fans."
