Last month, Netflix dropped a new trailer for the upcoming fourth season of “Stranger Things,” which is scheduled to debut sometime in 2022, and fans’ tongues were appropriately set wagging! Titled “Creel House,” the action-packed one-minute and 47-second segment opens idyllically on a family of four (whom viewers have surmised to be the Creels) moving into a gorgeous Victorian residence in the 1950s, strains of “Dream a Little Dream of Me” playing in the background. But all is not what it seems as the scenery soon shifts to the home’s dimly-lit entry, where the Creel patriarch is standing over what appears to be the dead bodies of his two young children. Flash forward three decades to the 1980s and Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo) and his friends are shown wandering through the since dilapidated Victorian, flashlights in hand, searching for clues and quoting Sherlock Holmes, a grandfather clock tick-tocking ominously in the background. Raising more questions than answers, the trailer certainly portends danger heading the way of our favorite Hawkins residents. As “Stranger Things” creators Matt and Ross Duffer affirmed in a recent press release, “A new horror is beginning to surface, something long-buried, something that connects everything . . . Season four is shaping up to be the biggest and most frightening season yet.”
The season is also shaping up to be the most visually dazzling yet because the Creel house is an absolute stunner! And though much of the upcoming storyline is shrouded in secrecy, one thing fans don’t have to wonder about is where to find the gorgeous Victorian. As documented copiously over the past year by pretty much everyone with a cameraphone and Twitter account, not to mention countless news outlets, the Creel residence can be found about 70 miles northwest of Atlanta, in Rome, Ga.
Though significantly distressed by the production team for the 1980s portions of the shoot, in real life the pad stands flawlessly at 906 E. 2nd Ave. SW, without even a single shingle out of place. (Please remember this is a private home. Do not trespass or bother the residents or the property in any way.)
