A few weeks later it was revealed that the famous home and museum of A Christmas story was for sale, an altercation erupted between (ironically) one of the film’s bullies and the current owner of the house.
Yano Anaya, who plays bully Grover Dill in the 1983 film, stopped by his Cleveland, Ohio home to take photos with fans when he was suddenly verbally attacked by the owner of the actual home, Brian Jones.
Jones told Anaya to “pull out” and tells him never to return to the property before nearly chasing him down the street.
The altercation left many confused, but Jones tried to clarify what had happened by claiming she believed Anaya was involved in a GoFundMe page that was attempting to crowdsource it as a way to buy the home.
“I apologize for the phrasing; however, he was concerned that fans might be tricked into contributing to a GoFundMe campaign that will not result in the purchase of the home,” Jones said. tmz extension. “I have no association with any GoFundMe campaign. I am not selling the house through Go Fund Me, so fans should not contribute to that fund under false pretenses, thinking their money is going towards the house purchase. I only receive offers from qualified purchasers through my real estate agent.”
Hard to tell who the real bully is in this situation.
Original story below.
The holiday season is finally upon us, and with it comes a return to cherished traditions and holiday cheer.
For many, that means rewatching the 1983 film A Christmas Story, a quintessential Christmas classic that follows the lovable Ralphie Parker on his quest to get the toy of his dreams.
Now fans of the film can buy a piece of cinematic history, as the house the Parkers lived in has just entered the Cleveland real estate market.
Located at 3159 West 11th Street, the yellow house with green shutters and trim has since been converted into a museum that is estimated to bring in over $1 million annually, allowing Christmas story fans and customers to visit the theaters and immediately enter the film.
“I’m looking for the right buyer,” current owner Brian Jones told WKYC Cleveland. “It’s something you not only own, but you have to take care of.”
The property spans 1.3 acres and boasts an entire museum and gift shop, a separate rental property, guest and visitor parking, and the neighboring house that served as the home of the Bumpus in the movie (The Neighbors by Parker).
According to Zillow, the current Parker home is valued at approximately $188,000, which includes four bedrooms, two bathrooms and 896 square feet of living space.
The property doesn’t have an official listing price, but Jones says he would consider a $10 million raise a “competitive offer.”
“This venture has been great, but it’s time for something different,” Jones said of his decision to sell the property. “It went way beyond what I expected it to be.”
