A home showcased in the iconic 1985 Steven Spielberg movie “The Goonies” has hit the market for $1.65 million.
The two-story Victorian house, situated in Astoria in northwest Oregon along the scenic Pacific Coast, was listed by John L. Scott Real Estate nearly 40 years after “The Goonies” popularized the home as a tourist attraction and local phenomenon.
In “The Goonies” – created from a story by Spielberg and directed by Richard Donner, who also directed “Superman” – characters Mikey (Sean Astin) and his big brother Brandon (Josh Brolin) lived in the house in a fictionalized neighborhood called “Goondocks.”
Thousands of fans flock to Astoria each year during The Goondocks festival, an annual celebration of the movie to “revel in the nostalgia of Mikey and the gang’s epic adventures,” according to the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce.

Built in 1896, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house features panoramic views of the Pacific Northwest coastline, white wood siding, and a wraparound porch.
Listing agent Jordan Miller told KOIN-TV that he and the seller are not just looking for any buyer.
“It has to be someone who appreciates this movie and the history of this movie and this beautiful town,” Miller said.
In the movie, brothers Mikey and Brandon find a treasure map in their attic and attempt to find the gold and fend off a wealthy developer who’s eyeing their home as the site to build a golf course.
The attic may not contain a treasure map, but it was converted into a bedroom with a gold-painted bathroom.
