Wouldn't it be great if you could just reverse the clocks, rip a hole in the space-time continuum, and somehow disappear into the world of a 1990s sitcom? Well, for a cool $1.29 million, that just might be possible. Given our current wreck of a country, we wouldn't blame you for feeling a little homesick for your imagined past, and the kinder, simpler times of your favorite childhood TV shows.

The Studio City residence that starred in Boy Meets World as the house of Cory Matthews (Ben Savage) and his family is for sale, and the listing agents have dramatically lowered the price from $1.59 million to $1.29 million as of Monday. The two bedroom, two bathroom home offers 2,500 square feet of living space, according to the listing. By that same token, that's 2,500 different square feet where you could crawl up in the fetal position, close your eyes, and pretend to be Cory, Shawn or Topanga in an alternate reality where Mr. Feeney never said "class dismissed," and life didn't hurt so damn bad. There is also a two-story guest house which you could potentially rent out on Airbnb to other nostalgia seekers.

The great Oscar Wilde once wrote that “No man is rich enough to buy back his past.” What he wasn't counting on was man's future ability to buy the house where a sentimental sitcom was filmed, and thereby forever occupy his own nostalgia!

Here are 16 pictures of the house in question, helpfully paired with even more quotes about the past, for your perusal:
