The house from Edward Scissorhands (1990)
Filming Location in Lutz, Florida
This is the Boggs family house from the fantasy gothic film Edward Scissorhands (1990).
It is located at 1774 Tinsmith Circle in Lutz, Florida.
In the movie, the Boggs family lives in a tacky, pastel-colored suburban neighborhood with manicured green lawns and small-minded neighbors who have a very low tolerance for individuality.
These days, the garish colors of Tinsmith Circle are long gone, and the streets are now lined with trees.
Fortunately, it is no longer the soulless landscape that we saw in the film.
The production team had initially visited a series of small towns in Texas while scouting for locations.
However, the director, Tim Burton, felt that Florida would be the perfect backdrop for his suburban hell. Art director Tom Duffield remarked that Burton also "liked the clouds."
The story revolves around an immortal humanoid creature called Edward (Johnny Depp), who lives with his inventor in an old gothic mansion. Edward is left with scissor blades for hands after his inventor dies from a heart attack before he can fit him with a human-like pair.
A well-meaning door-to-door saleswoman named Peg Boggs eventually adopts him after she finds him hiding out alone in the attic of the mansion. From that point on, he lives with the Boggs family in their suburban neighborhood.
Although their nosy neighbors initially accept him due to his hedge-sculpting and hair-cutting skills, things take a turn for the worse when they begin to fear what makes him different.

Peg Boggs brings Edward home
Peg Boggs is a door-to-door Avon saleswoman who takes pity on Edward Scissorhands after she finds him hiding in the old mansion.
After determining that he's harmless and all alone, she decides that the best course of action is to take him back to her family home.
Nosey neighbors gather outside the Boggs household and gossip about the strange new arrival.
To create a suburban hell, the production team painted the exterior of the houses with faded pastel colors. Only four separate colors were used in the process, as this gave the neighborhood a sense of conformity.
They also reduced the size of some of the windows.
The neighbors are so keen to meet the new guest that they coax Peg Boggs into holding a barbecue.
By that stage, Edward had already sculpted one of the hedges in the backyard into a dinosaur.
