Filming location is Florida Ranch Home – DIRT
The sale of movie memorabilia has long been big business, with iconic props, costumes and sets used on screen like Marilyn Monroe’s “The Seven Year Itch” dress, an R2-D2 droid from the original “Star Wars” trilogy and the Saturday Night Fever Dance Floor collect millions and millions of dollars on the auction block.
And now ‘Edward Scissorhands’ fans have a unique opportunity to purchase the most important short-lived piece of fantasy comedy directed by Tim Burton in 1990! The one-story Florida ranch owned by the beloved Boggs family in the beloved film, where blade-fingered Edward (Johnny Depp) is cared for for a while, has just hit the market!
Located at 1774 Cir. in Lutz, about 15 miles north of Tampa, the residence is Free by Megan Hartnell of Century 21 Affiliate for $699,000. Featuring three bedrooms and two bathrooms on 1,432 square feet, the pad was completed in 1989, just a year before “Edward Scissorhands” was filmed, and transformed the structure into a true pop culture icon. (Please remember this is a private residence. Do not enter or disturb the property or its owners in any way.)
This is not the first time the accommodation has come up for sale in recent years. On July 31, 2020, it was listed at $224,000, causing waves of excitement spread on the internet. The pad was picked up eight days later at its asking price by Joey Licalzi, who has a unique connection to the film. During the three months the production spent shooting on location in the Tampa area, Licalzi joined the crew, working as a dishwasher in the craft services department. When Boggs’ house came up for sale, he thought it was fate and quickly made an offer, telling the realtor about his ties to the film. According to the Tampa Bay Times, “That was all the previous owner needed to hear.” As Licalzi told the newspaper, “She turned down cash offers because I was a dishwasher. Can you imagine that? But she knew I would appreciate the house.
