Jesse Pinkman’s house from Breaking Bad up for sale for £1m

While any right-minded estate agent would usually steer clear of grizzly details when attempting to flog a house synonymous with murder and meth-making, not so one realty team currently tasked with shifting a two-story, 3,500-square foot, four-bedroom property in Albuquerque.

Yep, Jesse Pinkman’s former home is up for sale, and it appears the realty team are capitalising on its TV folklore, sticking a great big $1.6m (just over £1m here) price tag on the Spanish Colonial revival home, along with the caveat ‘Meth lab not included'.

And why not? There’s a big old market for Breaking Bad merchandise right now (Walt’s underwear recently commanded the princely sum of £4,000 at auction) and another of the show's locations - the plush estate in which Walt threatened his former business partner and his wife in the finale of the series - recently went for $2.65m in Albuquerque's North Valley.

"Built by the celebrated Leon Watson, constructed of hollow clay tile, this completely renovated home incorporates the depth and detail of craftsmanship and charm only seen in historic homes, but with all of the modern day conveniences," reads the listing on the mother-daughter realty team's website BreakingBadHouse. "The doors, windows, chimneys, and fireplaces are framed with stonework, anchored by original wood floors provide a richness and depth only seen in historical homes. The two story, 3,500 square foot, 4 bedroom home enjoys the luxuries of updated HVAC, electrical, plumbing, a luxurious master suite, and a gourmet kitchen while retaining the authenticity of design."

So there you have it: if you’re looking to up sticks to an obscure desert town and happen to be eyeing up a slice of the drug market, where better?

Careful though. You may just have a visit from the one who knocks.
