Featuring a sweeping front porch, an amazing lake view, and 10 acres of privacy, the house may look familiar to movie buffs. This Newborn farmhouse is on the market for $549,900, after a recent $10,000 reduction.
The residence served as the home of the Brackett family in the 2009 “Halloween 2” reboot directed by Rob Zombie. The Bracketts were the ill-fated clan that local psycho Michael Myers targeted for his revenge after escaping from the local asylum.
Several scenes were shot in the home as well as in nearby Madison, GA. Check out scenes of the home starting at 1:25 in this clip:
The home also played a starring role in 2012’s “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.” The Disney movie starring Jennifer Garner is about a childless couple who bury a box in their backyard, containing all their wishes for a child.
Later, a boy named Timothy magically appears at their door. In the film, the home underwent a minor makeover with a red metal roof.
Listing agent Krystyna Pelfrey of Keller Williams says the home and neighboring area are hotbeds for the Georgia movie industry.
With Georgia on the mind of filmmakers looking for cost-friendly locations, the home benefits from its proximity to Madison. The historic city has been famous since Union Army Gen. William T. Sherman spared it because it was “too beautiful to burn” during his March to the Sea.
The city boasts an impressive film resume of its own. “The Accountant,” “American Made,” “Hidden Figures,” “Goosebumps,” and “The 5th Wave” were all filmed there.
The four-bedroom home measures 3,205 square feet. It features original fireplaces in almost every room, nine-foot ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, and modern upgrades such as stainless-steel appliances, easy-glide drawers, and Corian countertops. Out back, there’s a pool and pool house. The property also comes with a barn, shed, fire pit, and chicken coop.
The best thing about this home is its sunset view. “You have this skyline—this view at night,” Pelfrey says, “when the sky is pink and you’re out there at the pool—the view is breathtaking.”
Whether you are looking for a farmhouse with modern conveniences in the sleepy Georgia countryside or hoping to dip into the Southern film industry, this farmhouse is a step in the right direction.
