The Georgia mansion that plays House Creel in ‘Stranger Things’ is up for sale
It’s certainly been an exciting Halloween season for “Stranger Things” aficionados! First, the Fayetteville, Georgia property that plays the Byers residence in the beloved Netflix series hit the market in mid-September and was quickly hung up by an investor who announced his intention to transform it into an Airbnb on the theme “ST”, mainly making people speak languages! And now fans with deep pockets have the chance to purchase another of the show’s star locations, as the Creel House, easily one of season four’s most important locations, has just gone up for sale, offering intrepid buyers an exclusive opportunity to own their own little piece of the Upside Down!
Nestled on a one-acre sloping lot 906 E. 2nd Ave. in Rome, Ga. (a few miles south of the place which represents Pennhurst Psychiatric Hospital of the series), the astonishing Second Empire style residence is listed for the modest sum of 1.5 million dollars. Replaced by Jeb Arp, Katie Gettis Edwards and Mimi Richards from Toles, Temple & Wright, Inc., offers aren’t considered until November 30, so fans have about a month to gather their Roldons and Danters to buy the place! (Please remember this is a private home. Do not enter or disturb residents or property in any way.)
Towering three stories over the road below, the handsome Victorian was originally built for prominent local lawyer and former deputy state insurance commissioner, Colonel Hamilton Yancey, and his wife, Florence. Completed in 1882, the couple named the residence “Claremont House”, in honor of Florence’s favorite cousin, Clare De Graffenried. Featuring seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms in an impressive 6,000 square feet, the property has only grown in the decades since, as evidenced by this photo taken in its infancy.
