One of the most-Googled houses in the world resides right here in Florida. 

The home, at 1774 Tinsmith Circle, Lutz, Hillsborough County, appeared in the 1990 hit Johnny Depp movie "Edward Scissorhands." Now it's No. 5 on the list of most-Googled houses, according to a study from LA Homes. The home information website reports that  "Edward Scissorhands house" averaged 5,300 searches a month across the world, according to a statement.

“Movies don’t just offer engaging storylines, but are an example of the era that they aired and can become staples in popular culture,” a spokesperson from LA Homes included in the press release. “However, it isn’t just the movie itself that can become wildly popular, it is also the sets and the interiors which can quickly become fan favorites.

“This study gives an interesting insight into the most popular movie homes that have stood the test of time in popularity and style.”



The movie home falls behind homes from "Father of the Bride" in California, "Hocus Pocus" in Massachusetts, "Twilight" in Oregon and "Home Alone" in Illinois.

According to Realtor.com, the Edward Scissorhands house in Lutz was built in 1989. In the 1990 fantasy movie with a romantic twist, the home belonged to the Boggs family. The movie is known for Depp's character, who had sharp blades in place of fingers. It also starred Dianne Wiest, Winona Ryder, Alan Arkin and Anthony Michael Hall.

The house was originally purchased for $230,000 in September 2020. Then, after the owners did some work on the house to pay homage to the movie, they listed it again for $699,900 in March 2022. The listing was removed Jan. 24, 2023, according to Realtor.com.
