The Myers house, the childhood home of slasher icon Michael Myers, was already shown in HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN II, but when director Dominique Othenin-Girard was tasked with bringing the house back to the screen in HALLOWEEN 5 (watch it HERE), he went with a house that looked very different than the house we saw in the earlier films. It makes sense that it wouldn’t be the exact same location, since the first two HALLOWEENs were filmed in California and HALLOWEEN 5 was shot in Salt Lake City, Utah, but Othenin-Girard didn’t even try to find a place that resembled the original Myers house. Instead of a quaint, two-story suburban home, he decided to present the Myers house as a crumbling mansion.
That HALLOWEEN 5 filming location is now up for sale. The real estate listing on ColdwellBankerHomes.com describes it as a single family home with ten bedrooms, two bathrooms, three partial baths, and a two car garage. Best of all, the website includes a photo gallery that offers a look at not just the exterior of the house – which has gotten quite an interesting new paint job since the HALLOWEEN 5 crew was there in 1989 – but also several rooms inside the place.
Here’s the info on the structure:
This Victorian estate is one of the Avenues’ historic masterpieces. It was designed by renowned architect Frederick Albert Hale, who also designed the original Salt Lake City Public Library as well as the Alta Club, the Eagles Club, and other iconic private and public structures. It served as a residence for several notable families before it was converted to apartments in the mid-1900s. Since that time, it has functioned as a triplex, four-plex, five-plex, and a single-family home. It has ten bedrooms, five bathrooms, four kitchens, several living areas with two fireplaces, as well as a formal dining room and entryway. It’s one of those lovely, well-built homes with high ceilings, large solid-wood doors, stained-glass windows, intricate woodwork, and custom hardware, and it sits on a .39-acre corner lot in the coveted Avenues neighborhood. The carriage house is now used as a two-car garage and workshop, and there is off-street parking for five additional cars. The plumbing for drinking water was converted to copper piping, and all the plumbing out to the main city line was recently replaced. While this home has great bones, it has had its share of wear and tear over the years and needs some work. It has the potential to be a stunning remodel or could also serve as a profitable investment since it is located on a beautiful tree-lined street near the University of Utah, hospitals, downtown, the airport, world-class ski resorts, hiking and biking trails, schools, shopping, and more. It is currently structured as a triplex, and the upstairs unit has a separate electric meter and a separate address with the post office. This property is on the Utah State Register of Historic Sites. Garage is 870 square feet. Square footage is given as a courtesy and buyer is advised to obtain independent measurements.
If any HALLOWEEN fans out there have just under a million to put toward buying a house, the HALLOWEEN 5 Myers house would be an awesome collector’s item.
