Atlanta home used as MLK's in 'Selma' hits the market

The home where Martin Luther King Jr. planned his historic Selma-to-Montgomery march is for sale — or at least, the movie version is.

For $499,000, you can buy the bungalow in Atlanta that portrayed the "Jackson house" in the Oscar-nominated film "Selma." It has five bedrooms and three baths, plus an office with its own private entrance. A spacious master suite includes a claw-foot bathtub, and the home has a covered porch.

The listing includes photos showing how the home looks now and how it was staged for the movie, in which Kent Faulcon plays dentist and MLK friend Sullivan "Sully" Jackson and Niecy Nash plays his wife, Richie Jean Jackson.

"Driving Miss Daisy" home on the market for $1.95 million

ATLANTA -- Twenty-three years ago, this month, Atlanta was the focus of the Academy Awards when "Driving Miss Daisy" won "Best Picture.

The film was written by Pulitzer prize winning Atlanta playwright Alfred Uhry who grew up in the Druid Hills area.

The story deals with the relationship between an elderly Jewish woman and her African-American chauffeur after World War II.

And as of today, the home from the movie, which forever linked Atlanta to Hollywood is, now, up for sale and it's going to the highest bidder.

To some, the home is as defining as Jessica Tandy & Morgan Freeman and as unforgettable as Alfred Uhry's words.

It's located at 922 Lullwater Road in the Druid Hills neighborhood.

Jeff Hullinger asked, the listing agent for Coldwell Banker Doris Robinson, "How did this home get selected for the movie?"
