Have you ever wanted to visit the house or apartment from your favorite movie or TV show? Want to swing by The Brady Bunch abode, rent out The Sleepless in Seattle houseboat, or have tea at the Downton Abbey castle? Well, it's not only possible, it's as easy as putting the the addresses of these famous movie houses into your GPS!
Granted, some of those homes aren't real (sorry to break it to you, but Tara from Gone with the Wind doesn't actually exist) and others have been destroyed, but this list highlights some of the most iconic locations in cinematic and television history.
Sometimes a film or TV house becomes a character unto itself, such as the estate in Poltergeist or the home in Home Alone. And other times, the famous houses from films and TV are just so beautiful (or quirky) that they leaves a lasting imprint on your memory. These are those famous homes!
So, hop in your car and vote for the house, mansion, apartment, boat, or cabin that you think is the most memorable silver screen landmark!
Want to see the actual Brady Bunch house? It's located at 11222 Dilling Street in North Hollywood, California! Producers picked the Studio City home because it looked relatable and middle-class. Though after the show's filming, the then owner of the house had to put up a fence because so many fans were walking all over the property. In July 2018, the house was put up for sale for $1.885 million.
Highclere Castle is where the hit BBC show Downton Abbey is filmed. The castle is open to the public during the summer for tours where you can have tea like an Earl or a Countess.
Owned by the Carnarvon family, the castle is located in Newbury, West Berkshire, United Kingdom. Fun fact - Julian Fellowes wrote the show with this castle specifically in mind!
As of September 2016, 4 Privet Drive (actually Picket Post Close, which is just as quaint and English, truth be told), is for sale. If you've got £475,000 (about $617,000) lying around, the Dursleys home from the Harry Potter film franchise could be yours. The house sits in the village of Martins Heron, a suburb 25 miles west of London.
The company selling the property, Chancellors, arranged a launch on September 24, due to extremely high demand for the house. Viewings are by appointment only. The Ministry of Magic, meanwhile, has issued a stern warning against the use of magic to manipulate muggles into selling wizards or witches this historic home for less than its worth, or at an unfair advantage to other would be buyers.
And in case you're wondering, yes, there is a cupboard under the stairs.
