HGTV to Sell Iconic TV House



HGTV is selling a piece of television history! The network announced in a press release that the house from “The Brady Bunch” is being put on the market after renovating its interior to match the sitcom’s set design.

“The Brady Bunch,” which ran for five seasons from 1969 through 1974, followed a blended family and their housekeeper. The property, located at 11222 Dilling Street in Studio City, California, was originally used as the exterior for the fictional family’s home.

“As part of the massive renovation, HGTV invested $1.9 million and added 2,000 square feet to the property’s original footprint, including a full second story,” HGTV announced in a press release. “Standout features in the completed home include the iconic floating staircase, the burnt orange-and-avocado green kitchen, the kids’ Jack-n-Jill bathroom and a backyard with a swing set, teeter totter and Tiger’s dog house.”

The home now boasts more than 5,000 square feet and sits on a 12,000-square-foot lot, according to its listing. Danny Brown at Compass is managing the sale.

“Curated furnishings and accessories are included in the sale and will take you back in time to a unique era,” the listing explains. “This is a collector’s dream.”

The house, built in 1959, is being listed for $5.5 million.

A portion of the sale’s proceeds will “help provide up to 250,000 meals for Turn Up! Fight Hunger, an initiative that helps kids living with hunger in the U.S. through No Kid hunger,” HGTV announced in a press release.

The House Was Renovated to Look Like ‘The Brady Bunch’ Set

HGTV documented the renovation of the iconic home on “A Very Brady Renovation” in 2019, which the network reported drew in more than 28 million viewers.

Drew and Jonathan Scott hosted the series, which featured Mina Starsiak Hawk and Karen E Laine of “Good Bones,” Leanne and Steve Ford of “Restored by the Fords,” Jasmine Roth of “Hidden Potential” and Lara Spencer of “Flea Market Flip.”

The “Property Brothers” stars celebrated the upcoming sale on Instagram, sharing throwback images from their time on the show. “We heard that our friends over at @HGTV just put a VERY special house on the market, one we helped flip!” the Scotts captioned the post. “It was such a blast to work on a ‘A Very Brady Renovation’ to bring the insides of this iconic home to life. We know that it’s future owners will be a bunch of happy folks!”

The network stars partnered with the sitcom’s child actors – Barry Williams, who starred as Greg; Maureen McCormick, who starred as Marcia; Christopher Knight, who starred as Peter; Eve Plumb, who starred as Jan; Mike Lookinland, who starred as Bobby and Susan Olsen, who starred as Cindy.

HGTV revealed in a press release that it “crowdsourced” vintage decor and other items from the series. “HGTV left no stone unturned, creating a perfect replica of the home down to the horse statue next to the staircase and the stuffed animal giraffe in the girls’ bedroom,” HGTV President Jane Latman said in a press release. “Viewers will be on the edge of their seats each week to see how we pulled it all off, and we can promise they’ll be transported back in time when they see the final result.”
