Friends don’t lie, so trust us when we tell you that one of Stranger Things’ most famous buildings will soon be on Airbnb. Only a total mouthbreather would make such a thing up.

Home to *that* iconic scene with the fairylights, the Byers’ house has just been bought for $300k (£268,400) and the new owner is planning on whacking the property on the rental app.

Located in Georgia, the home was featured heavily in the first season of the Netflix show and those multicoloured fairylights and scrawled alphabet letters have inspired many a Halloween house party.

Check out the iconic scene we’re referring to below:

According to TMZ, the property is set to become a ‘cash cow’ once it’s available to book.

Katie Siplon of TriCounty Real Estate in Savannah, Georgia, told the outlet that one of her clients had ‘snatched up the property’ and made a cash offer.

The home had only spent a week on the market before being bought, and comprises 1,846 square feet and six acres of land.

Siplon said that the new owner will replicate the Byers' home ‘to a T’ and even give some rooms an ‘Upside Down’ feel.

Other scenes and places from Stranger Things will also be recreated on the property’s acres of land. 

What’s more, the new owner hopes to have the property up and running by Halloween, so you’ll want to book those flight tickets asap.

LADbible has approached TriCounty Real Estate for comment. 

But the property will have some competition on Airbnb, which also hosts the home used to film the Byers’ new California abode.

At the end of season three, Will (Noah Schnapp), Joyce (Winona Ryder), Jonathan (Charlie Heaton) and Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) move to the West Coast.

Ryan and Karen Asher had allowed their New Mexico home to be used in the Netflix show, which is currently available for rent on Airbnb.

The Ashers told Newsweek in July: “We were initially going to move into the house until learning how popular Stranger Things has become. We decided to turn it into an Airbnb in order to share the home with others to enjoy as well.”

They added: “We love watching the Stranger Things fans excitement when they stop by to take a peek in the house or ask to take a photo.

"Of course we are big fans as well & Season 4 has become our favourite by far. To go back in time and be able to showcase this time capsule of a house has been an incredible experience.”
