If you’re a fan of the Coen Brothers’ 1998 comedy The Big Lebowski (and if you’re not, you should be…) and you have a few extra dollars floating around and were looking to spend it on a piece of movie history/rental property, we’ve got just the deal you’ve been waiting for.
Turns out that The Dude’s Venice Beach apartment complex – including the very apartment that housed a rug that “really tied the room together” -- is now on the market. Featuring six single room units, the complex can be yours for a measly $2.3 million. At that price, we imagine The Dude’s rent might be going up when a new owner takes over…
Of course, the future owner isn’t just buying a piece of movie history – they’re also getting a complex that’s been upgraded and features a “lushly landscaped gated courtyard.” That’s great and all, but the listing doesn’t play up the best reason to own the apartments – being the owner of what is basically Mecca for Lebowski fanatics. We feel sorry for anyone who lives there who doesn’t love the film – because we imagine the parade of people stopping by to take pictures and knock on the door looking for The Dude gets old if you’re not a fan. It's probably like living in the Amityville Horror house, only minus all the supernatural shenanigans and demonic pig.
If you happen to be in Los Angeles today, and are interested in getting an inside peak at The Dude’s abode, swing by the open house later this afternoon. Bulldog Realtors, the company listing the property, will be showing it to interested parties. The company even invited Jeff Bridges to attend – but he hasn’t officially accepted or declined the invite.
In a perfect world, a Lebowski fan will purchase this property and all future Lebowski-fests will be held at the complex. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the film than by hanging out in The Dude’s very own living room.
