Here’s the story, of a lovely lady… and a house we’re still in love with to this day!
A man named Brady might have been busy with three boys of his own but he still managed to carve out enough time to build the dream ’70s family home.
More than 50 years on, that quintessential retro house still gives so many of us the warm and fuzzies, so we, of course, had to track it down and find out more!
Yes, the Brady Bunch house is absolutely real. It was built in 1959 and shot to fame exactly a decade later when The Brady Bunch aired the first of its 117 episodes on ABC on September 26th, 1969.
However, though the exterior shot of the home is certainly one of the show’s most used and most recognizable, it’s the only one actually filmed here.
All of the action that takes place inside the house and in the garden was recorded on stage five at Paramount studios in Hollywood.
If you ever happen to find yourself in California, Studio City to be exact, make sure to swing by 11222 Dilling St. where you’ll find the Brady Bunch house.
And it now has a high-profile new owner that restored it to match its on-screen look to perfection.
When the famouse home was listed for sale after a lengthy 45-year ownership (the previous resident sadly passed away in 2018), plenty of eagle-eyed buyers jumped at the chance.
But HGTV had the winning bid, paying $3.5 million for the property before embarking on a highly televised renovation.
Soon after, HGTV took us a trip down memory lane with the series A Very Brady Renovation which brought back the actors from the popular TV show to renovate their fictional childhood home.
Actors Susan Olsen (Cindy Brady), Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Mike Lookinland (Bobby Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter Brady), Maureen McCormick (Marcia Brady), Eve Plumb (Jan Brady)
joined expert renovators and TV personalities like Jonathan and Drew Scott, Jasmine Roth, Steve Ford, Mina Starsiak, Leanne Ford, and Lara Spencer to breathe new life into the 1959-built home.
