'Brady Bunch' Home Is Finally For Sale. Here's Your Chance To See Inside

Share

If you had the opportunity to buy one of Hollywood’s most famous television homes, would you snatch it up?

For the first time in 50 years, the beloved “Brady Bunch” home is on the market — and could be yours for a cool $1.885 million.

Nestled in a North Hollywood neighborhood, the exterior of the famous home has remained largely unchanged over the years.

While the interior of the home was not used for filming, the exterior became a regular fixture on each episode of The Brady Bunch, especially at the start and end of the show.

The home was purchased in 1973 for $61,000, by a couple named Violet and George McCallister. The McCallister’s had their own “bunch” of children to raise inside the home — five sons who are now grown.

As the property soared to fame, the McCallisters became accustomed to fans driving by to snap photos of the home on a daily basis.

According to Zillow, the Brady Bunch property is the second-most photographed home in the U.S., after the White House. So potential homeowners are going to have to expect the trend to continue — and learn to be okay with it.

“You’re buying a never-ending attraction,” said Joe Maddalena, who is not affiliated with the listing, but has experience in marketing Hollywood properties. “There are positives and negatives.”

Both Violet and George McCallister have passed away, and the children have decided to sell the property.

“‘The Brady Bunch,’ over the next 20 or 30 years, will never be forgotten,” Maddalena said. “I think there is a definite cool factor (in buying) one of the most recognizable television homes in existence.”

The property owners are looking to pass the home on to a buyer who wants to keep the home intact.

According to listing agent Ernie Carswell, developers have their eyes on homes in the neighborhood for future building projects.

Carswell is anticipating a flood of prospective buyers to show interest in the home. The challenge will be weeding out the serious buyers from those who simply want to glimpse inside the house.

“We’re not going to accept the first big offer from a developer who wants to tear it down,” Carswell said.

“We’re going to wait a few days, in case there are others who want to purchase it as an investment to preserve it.”

Hopefully, the owners will have “much more than a hunch” about the perfect buyer — best of luck to all!
