In the film, which was directed by Richard Donner and written by Chris Columbus from a story by Steven Spielberg, Mikey (Sean Astin) and his big brother Brandon (Josh Brolin) live in the house in the “Goondocks,” fictional blue-. collar neighborhood of Astoria.


When a rich developer tries to buy their house to build a golf course, the brothers find a treasure map in their attic and set out to find the gold and save their house with a little help from some friends (played by Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, Ke Huy Quan, Jeff Cohen and Kerri Green).

From the listing, it’s clear that the property provides plenty of treasures of its own.


Built in 1896, the two-story Victorian house features white wood siding trimmed in rust, as well as a wraparound porch with a covered deck and panoramic views of the same gorgeous Pacific Northwest coastline shown in the film.

With wood floors throughout, the updated home comes with a fully equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher, range stove and refrigerator.


Pouring into the open format living and family rooms, the interior is soaked in natural light from wall to wall windows that look out over the bay.

But there are probably no more treasure maps to be found as the attic seems to have been converted into an extra bedroom, with its own gold painted bathroom.


In 2015, the Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce estimated that 12,000 to 15,000 people visited the house during The Goondocks, an annual celebration of the film. That year’s festival was the 30th anniversary of the film.

Sandi Preston, who admitted that she bought the house as a fan of the movie and would often welcome other moviegoers to visit, asked the city to help keep the fans from her property that August after attending the festival record.
