Check Out Pippi Longstocking’s House for Sale in Florida’s Beautiful Fernandina Beach
Behold: the rare opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood history tucked away in one of the most beautiful corners of the South.
Nineties kids and their parents will likely recognize the 131-year-old Captain's House in Old Town Fernandina Beach, Florida, as Villa Villekulla, the fictional home of Pippi Longstocking in the 1987 movie The New Adventures of Pippi Longstocking. Today, we can see why the one-of-a-kind residence is one of Fernandina Beach's most photographed homes. And it’s currently on the market for just $750,000.
This 2,220-square-foot home has so much more to offer than its claim to fame as the on-screen residence of everyone’s favorite “freckle-faced redhaired girl.” Sure, it needs a little work, but its quirky architecture, original details, and magnificent views of the Amelia River are worth a little elbow grease. And even don’t get us started on all the stained glass!

As the Amelia Island History Museum explained to the Florida Times Union, the house, which falls somewhere between Victorian and Italianate in style, is known for having a “wider variety of gingerbread motifs, such as sunbursts, fish scales, clovers, brackets, globes, scallops, circles, diamonds and Maltese crosses, than any other in Fernandina Beach.”
