Brady Bunch House

The Brady Bunch House

The Brady Bunch was the first sitcom about a blended family, the "bunch" of kids, parents, housekeeper and pets who lived in a split-level suburban home. ​

According to the Los Angeles Times, this house was newly built but the owner hadn't yet moved into it because of construction on the Ventura Freeway, which now runs behind it. If you're a real fan, you may notice that this home looks shorter than the one in The Brady Bunch shows. Set designers attached fake windows on the roof to give the appearance of a second story.

The fence is also new since The Brady Bunch was filmed, added when the owner grew frustrated with rude people walking up and peering into her living room. The house made its debut in the second episode of The Brady Bunch and appeared in almost every one of the 115 episodes that ensued. The Brady Bunch house is located at 11222 Dilling Street in North Hollywood.

According to the series, the Charmed house was built in 1898, which may be close, according to a historic plaque mounted across the street.

The Dead Again "house" is on High Tower Drive, off Camrose Drive west of Highland Avenue. The closest you can get by automobile to the Dead Again house is the dead-end street below.

Used in both the original 1991 and the 1995 sequel of the film Father of the Bride, starring Steve Martin, the Father of the Bride house still looks like it did in the films. While Martin's character claims he lives in San Marino, the Father of the Bride house is actually located in Pasadena at 843 S. El Molino Avenue. According to iamnostalker.com, the filmmakers had to fix up the Father of the Bride house before they started shooting.

The Happy Days house was the home of the fictional Cunningham family in the sitcom filmed from 1974 to 1984. You won't find the porch swing or Fonzie's motorcycle parked on the front lawn, but, otherwise, the Happy Days house looks much the same as it did. You may find a private security guard driving around the neighborhood, though. The Happy Days house is at 565 North Cahuenga Boulevard.

The Six Feet Under house, home of the Fisher and Sons Funeral Home in the HBO series, is located in the West Adams Historic District, south of I-10 at 2302 West 25th Street, even though it was allegedly in North Hollywood. Just imagine that lime-green hearse in the driveway.

House Where Michael Jackson's Thriller Was Filmed

Used in the famous Michael Jackson video (the scene where Ola Ray seeks refuge from the zombies), the Thriller house is located just next door to the Charmed house at 1345 Carroll, near Dodger Stadium. It doesn't look nearly as scary in the daylight as it did in that darkened scene, does it?
