Benjamin Button called it home in the movie — now sellers are looking for someone to call it home in real life.
The New Orleans house that was the setting for much of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is on the market.
The 7,800-square foot Garden District mansion has a huge yard, six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a library, music room and reception hall.
“It’s much nicer than what people saw in the movie,” said real estate agent Dorian Bennett. “It’s more like Tara than a home for old people.”
The movie was nominated for 13 Oscars, including best actor for Brad Pitt’s starring role.
The house is being sold to settle the late owner’s estate with an asking price of $2.85 million.
