From the Zillow listing:


Here’s your chance to own a piece of Hollywood Movie history: The My Girl House (1991, Macaulay Culkin, Dan Aykroyd, Jamie Lee Curtis). The 2-story home, with 15ft ceilings, has previously been a bed and breakfast over the years, the last one from 2003 through 2012. The main home has 7508SF, 6 Master Suites (5 full master suites upstairs with showers and separate jetted tubs and 1 handicap accessible master suite downstairs) and a beautiful wrap around New-England style porch. There are two rooms downstairs that act as office/den space, 2 formal living rooms, and a dining room that can accommodate a table large enough to seat 12, which is connected to the COMMERCIAL kitchen (it was also a restaurant when it was a bed and breakfast). There are also 2 half baths downstairs, 2 staircases in front and back, and 7 fireplaces (4 downstairs, 3 upstairs). The property also includes 2 carriage houses totaling about 2,000SF. Both units (each 1bed/1bath with laundry rooms/kitchens/living rooms, etc), need full renovation. Did I mention the 50ft hotel-sized pool, that has a brand new pool pump? It’s awesome. Along with this, the property includes a 1 car garage and a 1 car carport with two separate driveways and parking. All of this magical gloriousness sits on 3/4 acre, and takes up 2/3 of the block. This property is perfectly set up to be an AirBnB that could be rented out for events/weddings (like they used to previously). A world of opportunity (and equity) awaits the right buyer!
