Jeff Spicoli didn’t need money. Just some some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and he was fine.

But Spicoli, the blissed out stoner portrayed by Sean Penn in the 1980s coming-of-age classic “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” probably wouldn’t say no to a righteous piece of real estate with a lush green backyard and a relatively modest price tag.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house built in 1960 was the ‘Fast Times’ home of Brad and Stacy Hamilton, played by Judge Reinhold and Jennifer Jason Leigh in the movie. The film also starred Phoebe Cates as Linda Barrett, and three future Academy Award winners — Penn, Forest Whitaker and Nicholas Cage.

Inside the 1,250-square-foot house, things have completely been re-done. The master suite has French doors that open onto the backyard.

The house is listed for $739,999.

The listing agent is Olga Safonoff with Pinnacle Estate Properties.
