According to reports, it’s the second-most photographed home in North America, with only the White House ahead of it. Multitudes of generations have visited the home….well, through their TV screens, anyway..and now, it’s for sale.
Yep, ‘The Brady Bunch’ home is on the market.
George and Violet McCallister bought the 2,477 square foot, two-bedroom (wait, there was a room for the Brady boys, one for the Brady girls….where exactly were Mike and Carol sleeping??), three-bathroom split-level home in the Studio City neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1973 for $61,000. Current asking price? $1.885 million!
Mind you, the inside of the home is like a museum, updated and upgraded to celebrate the era that the pad gained its fame (‘The Brady Bunch’ ran from 1969 to 1974). While the interior scenes of the show were shot in a studio, a rock-wall fireplace, wood-panelled walls and floral wallpaper are just some of the vintage touches that truly make this a house trapped in time.
The one fear is that a potential buyer may want to tear down the property, seen in the opening and closing credits of the TV show throughout its run, and take advantage of the land. But the backlash from a fan base that only continues to grow will likely thwart that. I’d be surprised if it ain’t gone this weekend. Gotta love that Brady family!… ~ Jason
