The structural star of “A Nightmare On Elm Street” has morphed from fright-night movie star into a home ready for clean, modern, fear-free living. Just take a gander at the photo spread of the house that was formerly fit for the scary interloper Freddy Krueger.

That’s right. The Dutch colonial exterior at 1428 N Genesee Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046 gives way to a transformed interior space more suited for Dwell magazine than one of Hollywood’s biggest box office horror flicks. But it’s been a long time since the slasher series made its debut in 1984, and now the place is spruced up and ready for sale with a list price of $2.1 million.

According to AOL Real Estate, current owner Angie Hill  not only stripped the place of its creepy vibes but also rehabbed the house down to every last piece of wood, changing the floor plan to give the home an interesting mix of traditional and modern.

The classic center-hall entry gives way to a open-plan family room and kitchen that open to a yard and in-ground pool. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms with custom built-ins and 4 modernistic bathrooms. And in case you invite anyone who isn’t named Krueger over for a short stay, there’s a separate guesthouse in the yard.
