There has never been a more compelling excuse to round up some buddies and search for One-Eyed Willy's lost loot.

A three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in Astoria, Oregon has gone on the market for $1.65 million, nearly 40 years after acting as one of the key settings in 1985's The Goonies.

Jordan Miller of John L. Scott Real Estate is the owner of the listing.
Mikey (Sean Astin) and his older brother Brandon (Josh Brolin) resided in the house in the "Goondocks," a fictitious working-class area of Astoria, in the film, which was directed by Richard Donner and written by Chris Columbus from a story by Steven Spielberg.

The boys discover a treasure map in their attic and set out to collect the gold with a little assistance from some pals when a wealthy developer tries to purchase their property to turn it into a golf course (played by Corey Feldman, Martha Plimpton, Ke Huy Quan, Jeff Cohen and Kerri Green).
It is clear from the listing that the property offers a wealth of gems on its own.

The two-story Victorian house, which was built in 1896, has white wood siding with rust trim, a wraparound porch with a covered deck, and expansive views of the same stunning Pacific Northwest shoreline as shown in the film.
The refurbished house has wood floors throughout and a kitchen that is completely furnished with a refrigerator, range burner, and dishwasher.

Wall-to-wall windows that overlook the bay fill the interior with natural light, which spills into the open-format living and family rooms.
However, as the loft looks to have been transformed into an additional bedroom with a separate bathroom painted in gold, there are probably no more treasure maps to be discovered.

The Astoria-Warrenton Chamber of Commerce calculated that during The Goondocks, an annual commemoration of the film, 12,000 to 15,000 people visited the house in 2015. The film's 30th anniversary was celebrated that year. After the festival's record attendance that August, Sandi Preston, who acknowledged that she purchased the home as a fan of the film and frequently welcomed other cinephiles to visit, requested assistance from the city to help keep people off her land.
Over the years, the Goonies cast has come together multiple times.
The actors appeared virtually together in 2020 on Josh Gad's programme Reunited Apart, which benefited The Center for Disaster Philanthropy. And even Spielberg, 75, showed up.
