Historic House from Tom Hiddleston Vampire Movie for Sale in Michigan
Part comedy, part romance-horror, a Tom Hiddleston film was shot in Michigan about a decade ago - and the home from the movie is now on the market!
I'd never heard of "Only Lovers Left Alive" so I did some digging. According to a summary on IMDB,
Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangiers, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover.
Oh- and they're both vampires! The film also stars Tilda Swinton.
The musician vampire Adam has holed himself up in his Victorian-era home in Detroit with his instruments and books - and that very home is now for sale!
Here's a clip from the movie. And yes, the mansion looks a bit... run down. But it sounds like someone has since renovated it!.
The fact that it was in a movie certainly isn't the only interesting thing about the residence. According to Detroit Metro Times, the four-story home was built in 1879 by James P. Donaldson and later purchased in 1893 by David C. Whitney, the son of lumber baron David Whitney Jr.
It was later converted into a boarding house for auto workers.
Later, director Jim Jarmusch would select the Victorian at 82 Alfred St. for his movie "Only Lovers Left Alive". Since then, another owner purchased the house and has been fixing it up. .
At 6,710 square feet, the home is located in Detroit's Historic Brush Park, just steps away from Little Caesar's Arena. According to the listing, the home boasts,
- Private original rooftop deck
- 1,000 square-foot Carriage home that's been converted to an apartment
- 4-car garage
- 3 kitchens
- 8 fireplaces
- Ornate wood paneling and mantles
- New roof
- Updates to HVAV and Air conditioning.
Probably one of my favorite things about the house is the unusual dome bedroom! Take a tour in the gallery below and see how much the mansion is going for!
