You Can Buy The House From ‘Rocky II’ For $139,000

Own the house where Rocky lived when he beat Apollo Creed

Movies

The house from Rocky II is up for sale — here’s the listing — and can be yours for $139,000.

In the 1979 film, Rocky Balboa buys the rowhome on 2313 South Lambert Street in Philadelphia’s Girard Estate neighborhood with the winnings from his fight with Apollo Creed.

The 1,306-square-foot home has three bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms and a full basement. While the block and exterior of the house were used in the movie, the interior of the house was not filmed.

“It might add to the allure of the house, but I don’t know that it would make people put more money on the house,” Joe Bianco, the listing agent for the property, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It’s just something cool. I think people would like know about any house that has a bit of history.”

In the film, Rocky’s inexperience with money — including the hasty purchase of the house (without even going upstairs!) — leads to financial difficulties that force him back into the ring for a rematch with Creed.

Chances are you know the rest.
