There are homes where famous films were shot that still enjoy a kind of real estate celebrity status all their own. But quite unlike the family-friendly Chicago house used for “Home Alone,” a Miami area property where one of the “classics” in adult film history was created is a little less celebrated.
In fact, the listing notes for this Coconut Grove real estate market oddity understands that the best remedy for it might be, well, a bulldozer. After several price reductions, the 1961 modern is currently priced to sell for $1.75 million, with much of the value resting in the .62 of an acre of land.
Not that one can’t imagine there might be a buyer out there that would actually enjoy remodeling the house where scenes for “Deep Throat” was filmed. According to Miami New Times, the listing photos reveal that rooms where at least two scenes were filmed are clearly visible, including a grotto-like wine cellar.
Deep Throat, the pioneering 1972 porno film, was partially shot in various places throughout Miami-Dade, and now an infamous mansion that was the setting for two of the film’s most infamous scenes is for sale. It can be yours for the price of $1.75 million.
Built and owned by bon vivant Baron Joseph “Sepy” De Bicske Dobronyi, the eccentric house is for sale after the “Baron” died in 2010.
The film follows the plight of Linda Lovelace (playing a fictionalized version of herself), a sexually liberated woman who … visits a doctor, and well, what do you know? The doctor apparently keeps his office in one of the mansion’s cottages.
While the main house needs significant updates, it is an interesting structure with glass walls and unique interior spaces. The property is actually two separate lots, and has a free-form pool that sits below heavy foliage that creates a very private setting — which makes sense, given the property’s cinematic past.
