The house where Peter Jackson (Director, Producer, and Writer of the Lord of the Rings Movies) filmed his 1996 film ‘The Frighteners’ starring Michael J Fox is up for sale. The house is approximately 5,307 square feet with 5 bedrooms and was built in 1982.
Despite a softening market, offers are expected to sweep past the $680,000 government valuation when tenders close on Thursday.
Real estate agent Della Randall said the property had attracted overseas interest.
“It is in the upper tier of house prices; we expect it will sell well above the GV,” she said.
“We have found the upper-tier market quite buoyant compared with the mid-market. People in the upper bracket are not adversely affected by market conditions.”
The large house features a marble-floored foyer leading to a sweeping rimu staircase, a music- media room, formal living and dining rooms, a library-gallery, three-metre high plaster ceilings, chandeliers, a gym, a cellar and a five-car garage.
