We often remember great movies for their good stories and a talented cast that can masterfully interpret the characters. That’s not all that makes them so memorable. Fans recall their favorite movies because of the iconic houses portrayed in them. While some of these famous houses do not exist in real life and are just film sets, a handful are real homes, and super fans are thrilled when they identify one. Imagine how exciting it would be to spot the house where Kevin from Home Alone pulled off his legendary antics or how awesome it’d be to visit the museum that is Wayne’s Manor from The Dark Knight Rises. It is possible to visit some of these homes in real life. Many of these houses have real people living in them, so you might want to view them from a distance or approach them courteously. We all can recognize a film or show based on a photo of the iconic house. Below is a list of 40 famous houses from movies and TV shows that you can visit today.
The Brady Bunch: 11222 Dilling Street in Studio City, California
The Brady Bunch was arguably one of the most popular sitcoms of the late 60s and early 70s. Its popularity was so widespread that viewers often involuntarily hummed to its insanely catchy theme song. The Brady family house is also one of the most iconic in TV history and the second most photographed house in the US — second only to the White House. The house, which was built in 1959, stands in the same spot to this day.
In August 2018, HGTV purchased the house for $3.5 million through Douglas Elliman Real Estate and fully transformed it into a replica of the original TV set. One year later, on September 9, 2019, A Very Brady Renovation premiered and raked 8.1 million viewers in its first episode.
