A lot of people that caught season four of Stranger Things will probably have had nightmares about being trapped in the creaking, spooky Creel house in which extra-dimensional superbad Vecna sets up his demonic lair.

Those people will probably not be interested to know that the real-life house has just gone up for a sale in Rome, Georgia. 

The mansion, which dates back to 1882, is on the market for cool $1.5 million. For that money, a buyer will get 6,000 square feet of Gothic Revival grandeur in East Rome’s historic district – as well as a faint, but spooky aura of Netflix sci-fi-horror lore.

IRL, the grand two-storey house is known as one of Rome’s most prominent historic homes’. It was built by local lawyer Colonel Hamilton Yancey in the late 19th century and boasts seven bathrooms and six bedrooms.

Locally, it’s known as the Claremount House – rather than, say, ‘Vecna’s gaff’ – and it offers a heck of an Airbnb opportunity for a savvy investor or a home to a big family. Our advice? No telekenesis in the dining room. 

‘Stranger Things’ confirms title for final series’ first episode – and fans have theories.
