The traditional Icelandic house that features in the Will Ferrell Netflix film “Eurovision” has gone up for sale.
The film which has the full title Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga is a comedy about two Icelandic singers, Lars Ericksson and Sigrit Ericksdottir, who get the chance to represent their country at the Eurovision Song Contest.
It was released last month and also stars Pierce Brosnan, Dan Stevens, and Demi Lovato but now the house that was used as the home of Ferrell‘s character Lars and which features in several important moments during the film is up for sale.
The two-floor wooden property, built in 1903 in the traditional style which is typical for the period, is located on the corner of Heoinsbraut and Hafnarvegur, a short walk from the port of Huavik and the sea can even be seen in the background.
It has only 127 square metres (1,367 square feet) of floor space, and includes a foyer, utility room, kitchen, living room and three bedrooms and is on the market now for 24,500,000 ISK (143,000 GBP).
It was apparently built by brothers Aoalsteinn and Pall Kristjansson who married sisters Helgi and Thora Guonadaetar and ran a small shop in part of the building.
It is unclear who has now put it up for sale at a local estate agent (https://bit.ly/3jx6iF8).
