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!

"Everywhere you look" in Alamo Square in San Francisco, you can see the famous Full House intro shots. These houses are called "The Painted Ladies" and were used to establish the show, but none of them were the actual house where the Tanners "lived." If you're REALLY interested in checking out the actual house, it's located at 1709 Broderick Street about a one mile walk from the Painted Ladies. Bob Saget returned to the house in 2013 and said the experience was "creepy."

From 1990 to 1996, guests saw the Bel Air house that represented a new (and rich) life for Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Ironically, the house isn't even in Bel Air, but located in the posh area of Brentwood instead. 251 N. Bristol Avenue, to be exact. You can swing by and check out the house whenever you're in the neighborhood, but don't expect Geoffrey to answer the door.

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.
