Edward Scissorhands in Florida sells for $700,000

Fans of Tim Burton films can now own a piece of the Reel estate.

In the Tampa Bay area of ​​Florida, a house featured in Edward Scissorhands — and now serving as a museum for the 1990 film — is listed for $699,900. But more than ownership, a new owner will own some pieces of film history.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the home at 1774 Tinsmith Circle in Lutz comes with a garden designed to mimic how it looked in the film – and memorabilia associated with the strip, which is included in the price.

“Don’t miss the chance to own such a fun and interesting one-of-a-kind home furnished with ALL the priceless memorabilia from the movie!” said listing representative, Megan Hartnell of Century 21 Affiliatedin the object description.

Collectibles include authentic and reproduced props and documents. Last year, according to the publication, the film’s prop master donated an original script, an autographed photograph of its director, Tim Burton, a crew schedule, a photo of the crew, and even a prototype of the paper puppets that Edward Scissorhands (Johnny Depp) makes in a scene. Inside, according to the listing, there are replica wallpapers in the kitchen, which comes with its original cabinets and counters. The images in the listing also feature a number of portraits of Edward Scissorhands, commemorative dolls of his likeness and some posters.

In the film, this lodging is the home of the Boggs family with whom Edward is staying. The set wasn’t just limited to this distribution. The film was shot in this cul-de-sac at Tinsmith Circle – and starred in other houses are still nearby.

The current owners of this home, Joey and Sharon Licalzi, bought it in September 2020 for $230,000. They called it their home but still used it as a museum with free entry.

“My daughter is having twins,” Joey Licalzi told the publication. “We need more space. I wish we didn’t have to sell.”

Even Joey himself has a connection to the film. At the time of production, he was working at a local Denny’s restaurant – and the film’s handyman services department needed a kitchen to wash dishes. He let her use the space, and it’s thanks to this story that he bought the house in 2020.

Joey hopes that eventually a movie fanatic will come in to buy the block and keep its museum use intact. The worst comes to the worst, and the new owner would rather not live surrounded by memorabilia, the collection can go to a film museum and restore the interior to how it looked in the movie – an effort Joey is willing to fundraise for.

“I will not sell it to anyone who would destroy the house,” he told the publication.

Movie history aside, the 1,432-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms — and sits on a 7,405-square-foot corner lot. The kitchen appliances are new, as is the kettle. Outside there is a large garden big enough to entertain guests.

The home is in the Carpenter’s Run neighborhood which has a clubhouse, pool, playground, tennis and basketball courts.
