Two houses featured on the hit TV series Breaking Bad are up for sale in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

A mother-daughter realty team is helping sell the home where the fictitious Jesse Pinkman made methamphetamine.

The two-storey, 3,500 square foot, four-bedroom home in Albuquerque's Country Club area is listed for 1.6 million dollars (£1m).

The sales team created a website to promote the houses, which includes the caveat "Meth lab not included".

Susan Feil and Alicia Feil Peterson of Coldwell Banker Legacy list another house that appeared in the series finale in Albuquerque's North Valley for 2.65 million dollars (£1.7m). That is where the show's main character, Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston, threatened his former business partner with two fake assassins.

Breaking Bad follows former high school teacher White as he manufactures meth with a former student, Jesse Pinkman, played by Aaron Paul.

The AMC show ended in 2013 but tourism companies in Albuquerque still embrace the drug-addled series and give Breaking Bad tours, showcasing spots made popular in the show.

The city's visitors bureau even includes a map of the show's famous locations on its website.

A prequel to the show, Better Call Saul, follows a struggling lawyer, played by Bob Odenkirk, as he defends drug lords, petty criminals and people who claim they were injured in traffic accidents.
