Big Lebowski House For Sale

So, you practice Dudeism at the Church of the Latter-Day Dude; make pilgrimages to the many festivals in the film’s honour and you and your slacker Dude buddies go bowling at least twice a week. Ok, we get that you like The Big Lebowski.

But do you love the movie enough to part with $2.3 million (£1.4 million)? Because whoever does lay down that sum of money will be able to live in the residence of one Jeff Lebowski, The Dude, himself, and thus, rightly, lay claim to be the biggest of the many big Big Lebowski fans currently strolling around the globe.

However, before you start breathlessly screaming ‘I know house prices have gone up ridiculously in the last 13 years, but $2.3 million for a one-bedroom unit? You’ve got to be joking’, at your computer screen, rest assured you get more than just Lebowski’s apartment. In fact for that money you’ll acquire six one-bedroom bungalows that sit on over ten thousand square feet of land and lie just yards from Los Angeles’s iconic Venice beach.

And if buying homes that have featured in the movies is your thing, here are some other cinematic houses that are either currently on the market or recently sold. Get your cheque books out. If you can still find it that is…

Home Alone

In May of this year, the grand red brick colonial Georgian house in which Macaulay Culkin did battle with Joe Pesci and the other one, went on sale for $2.37 million (£1.45 million). Located in Illinois, potential buyers obviously balked at that price tag because at the time of writing the house is listed at $2.12 million (£1.3 million).

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Ok, this might be cheating somewhat as the stunning architectural wonder house that sprang to fame after featuring in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was taken off the market last week, due to a lack of interest. However, the estate agents (or realtors as they call ‘em over the pond) say that following renovations the building – which housed the Ferrari that crashed through the modernistic glass wall and into the forest below – will be back up for sale. Whether that will be at its original $2.3 million (£1.4 million) or its last-listed price of $1.8 million (£1.1 million) is unknown.

Blade Runner

Designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1920s, Ennis House had already appeared in a number of movies before Blade Runner, but it was that movie that sealed the house’s fame. Based on Mayan temples, the Los Angeles house was badly hit by a 1994 earthquake and suffered further damage during the 2004-05 rainy season. The house went on the market in 2009 for $14.9 million (£9.1 million), yet when finally it sold just two weeks ago, it went for $4.49 million (£2.75 million).
