The sale of movie memorabilia has long been big business, with iconic screen-used props, costumes and set pieces 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 garnering millions upon millions of dollars on the auction block.
And now “Edward Scissorhands” fans are being presented with a unique opportunity to purchase the most significant piece of ephemera from the 1990 Tim Burton-directed fantasy comedy! The one-story Florida ranch house belonging to the Boggs family in the beloved film, where the blade-fingered Edward (Johnny Depp) is taken in for a time, has just hit the market!
Located at 1774 Tinsmith Cir. in Lutz, about 15 miles north of Tampa, the residence is being offered by Megan Hartnell of Century 21 Affiliated for $699,000. Featuring three bedrooms and two baths in 1,432 square feet, the pad was completed in 1989, just one short year before the filming of “Edward Scissorhands” took place and turned the structure into a veritable pop culture icon. (Please remember this is a private residence. Do not trespass or bother the property or its owners in any way.)
This is not the first time the dwelling has been offered for sale in recent years. On July 31, 2020, it was listed for $224,000, causing waves of excitement to ripple across the internet. The pad was snatched up just eight days later at its full asking price by Joey Licalzi, who happens to have 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 the Boggs home came up for sale, he figured it was fate and promptly made an offer, informing the realtor of his ties to the movie. Per the Tampa Bay Times, “That was all the previous owner needed to hear.” As Licalzi told the paper, “She turned down cash offers because I was a dishwasher. Can you imagine that? But she knew I would appreciate the house.”
