All in favor of living in the very house that captivated your haze-glazed eyes in Cheech & Chong’s Up In Smoke (1978), speak now or forever hold your peace.
This could be the only chance to live like the Cannabis-loving duo that paved the way for Mary Jane’s acceptance in society.
This house resides in Highland Park, and is on foreclosure, but still contains the fainted memories that occurred during the best of times. According to Curbed LA, the location of the stoner mansion is apparently near a gold line station, so no under the influence driving should take place. But cannon launching might.
The house was owned by Cheech’s Vietnam vet cousin Strawberry, played by Tom Skerritt. Included in this 1906 two-story house is four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a dining room, a laundry room, a koi pond, a patio, and a back house with a bathroom where you can perfect your crops in peace.
When the house was foreclosed last November, some memorable statues and wrought iron doves were removed. The cannon, once aimed at the intersection of Figueroa and Pasadena Ave, remains.
The asking price for this prime piece of real estate is $344,900. Home sweet home.
