Home of ’90s classic’ My Girl ‘is for sale
The # 1 listing on all of Realtor.com last week was a little piece of Hollywood history. This was the house featured in the 1991 film My girl with Anna Chlumsky and the great Macaulay Culkin. You know the one – “He can’t see without his glasses!” (We can’t describe the movie in more detail, otherwise we would burst into tears.)
The house featured in the film is now for sale. It is located in Bartow, Florida, one hour east of Tampa. According to Realtor.com, the Victorian house was built in 1906 and contains eight bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms. The listing says the 9,500 square foot house also served as a guest room, includes 2 carriage sheds, a 50 foot pool, a 1-car garage and a “beautiful New England-style porch.” Here are a few more images from the list:
If you’ve never seen the movie (or just need a good cry), here’s the trailer for My girl.
According to WFLA.com, the current owner of the house didn’t even know its history when he bought it in 2019. They understood when people started showing up to take pictures of the house – usually around “a half a dozen “speechless every week. (The current owners don’t care; they even have a Chlumsky and Culkin cardboard cutout on the outside to pose with.)
The list claims the My girl house would make an ideal Airbnb, and we could definitely see that work. Which would not want to spend a weekend with the girls in the My girl to house? Whoever buys it, it won’t be cheap though. The asking price is $ 675,000. It’s still cheaper than Daniel La Russo’s mansion in Cobra Kai, which was on the market recently for $ 2.6 million.
