The house that featured in the legendary 1985 film The Goonies has been put up for sale by its current owner, meaning a fan could live there for $1.65million.

Since the film aired, the Victorian-ear house in Astoria, Oregon, became instantly known and fans from across the world flocked to visit the site where the iconic film was made. But what has been happening since the release of the legendary movie? Let’s find out…

What happened after filming?

The real-life homeowner, Sandi Preston, bought the property, which boasts views of the Pacific Ocean meeting the Columbia River, in 2001.

Before restoring the two-storey house, Preston allowed fans to visit and take tours. She soon stopped this because, even though most visitors were respectful, she said some would take souvenirs by pulling off pieces of the wallpaper near the bunk beds.

Trouble with neighbors

Residents of the neighborhood complained about people showing up day and night, which seems to be common in historic filming locations as the Full House abode also suffers from tourist visits.

The neighbors tried to put a stop to fans of the feel-good, family movie that sees fictional brothers Brand Walsh (Josh Brolin) and Mikey Walsh (Sean Astin) and their friends from the wrong side of the tracks (the “Goon Docks”) fight housing developers, visiting the site by introducing fines to people parking on the street.

Current owner Preston told The Oregonian/OregonLive in 2013: “There is someone here 24/7. [As] at midnight, I can still see flashlights.” 

She closed the doors to visitors except during Goonies Day tours, organized to celebrate the movie’s anniversary, on June 7.

This didn’t stop fans of the film trying to get a glimpse, so after the film’s 30th anniversary Preston posted signs forbidding tourists from making the trek up a dirt road to the property, in 2015.

Luckily for fans, Preston eventually changed her mind and reopened the property to visitors.

She told WW that: “It was just something that I felt I needed to do. I’ll just leave it at that.”

The sale and new buyer

The Goonies house has now been put on market by Preston who has said the reason for the sale is because she is looking to downsize.

Since buying the house, she has restored the house and since it went on sale pictures of it have been hitting social media.

Speaking about the sale, listing agent Jordan Miller said: “We’ve heard from fans and we’re talking to real estate agents and buyers who have been pre-approved for a mortgage.”

He went on to say that: “My client is looking for a buyer who will love the property as much as she has for 21 years.

“It’s up to the new owner to make it look like the movie if that’s their joy or keep the upgrades and restoration befitting one of the oldest houses in the first permanent American settlement west of the Rocky Mountains.”

Miller also has the listing for the 1885 house at 384 38th Ave. that is for sale by Preston’s daughter. He is hoping to sell them together.
