Yeah, B*tch! You Can Buy Jesse's 'Breaking Bad' House (Photos)
If you haven't been able to fill that void in your life ever since Breaking Bad ended, may we suggest you purchase Jesse Pinkman's party pad? Because you can, for just $1.6 million.
The Albuquerque, N.M. abode where Jesse spent much of his time yelling "Yeah, bitch!" is on the market, and in case you're wondering: no, the meth lab is not included, according to its real estate listing. It's best remembered as the spot where Jesse held his days-long, drug-addled ragers. Or where Jesse used hydrofluoric acid to dissolve Domingo "Krazy 8" Molina's body in the upstairs bathtub, and he and Walter White later watched in horror as it melted through the ceiling. You know, those sweet memories.
Don't expect this two-story, 3,500-square-foot classic Spanish Colonial revival house to be in any sort of party neighborhood. The four-bedroom spot is actually located off Route 66 in the historic Albuquerque Country Club area. "It's a really quiet neighborhood," Alicia Feil Peterson, an associate broker for Coldwell Banker, which is selling the house, told USA Today.
You can, however, spend your time chilling on the house's two porches or getting cozy by the fireplaces.
The home holds a lot of Breaking Bad history, especially with how Jesse got the house in the first place. His aunt, Ginny, owned the pad, and Jesse had spent time living there as her caretaker while she was struggling with lung cancer. After she died, he lived there for some time, but in Season 3, his parents tried to sell the place, much to Jesse's dismay. In a pretty badass scene, Jesse arrives to the house as his parents are there waiting for the new owner to show up, and walks up to the front door. His mother yells, "Jesse, the house has been sold! The new owners are expected at any moment. Where do you think you're going?"
Jesse replies, "Inside. I bought the place," as he unlocks the door and walks inside. BOOM.
Interior shots of Jesse's home were used in the series, but eventually the film crew built a replica set of the house for the infamous party scenes:
Coldwell Banker isn't just selling Jesse's house. They're also putting up Gretchen and Elliot Schwartz's home that was featured on Breaking Bad's season finale for $2.65 million.
The Albuquerque house used as the White family residence in the show isn't for sale, though it's been a really popular place for throwing pizzas on the roof.
