The Byrde Family House  in 'Ozark' is Actually in  Georgia, and Not Missouri,  as the Series Claims

While it may require some upgrading, the lake house owned by the Byrdes in Netflix's ‘Ozark’ series is definitely house goals material.

However, don’t go looking for it in  the Ozarks (famously set in Missouri). 

The entire show was filmed in the Peach state, in the small town of Flowery Branch, Georgia.

Which means the Byrde family house isn't by the Lake of the Ozarks, but rather by Lake Lanier -- a man-made lake in northern Georgia.

The lake house makes its first appearance in episode 3, season 1,  when the Byrde family moves in

— and Buddy, the terminally ill longtime owner of the house —  moves to the basement.

Both on screen and in real life, the lakeside house is a pastoral idyll complete with its own pier to the  front and deep pine woods to the rear.

Shots of the house were all taken in  Van Pugh North Park, on the south  edge of Lake Lanier.

According to CNN Traveller, just next door to it, you will find another Ozark house, the home of Sam Dermody, Wendy’s real estate boss.

Another key character's home, that  of local minister Mason Young, is in Buford, which is a short drive south-west.

And while it may sound off to learn  that the Byrde house is actually set in Georgia, and not Missouri -- or the actual Ozarks,

this happens a lot more often than  you think. 

Dubbed the Hollywood of the South, Georgia has long been attracting filmmakers to the area by offering tax incentives and lower production costs.

Countless popular movies and TV  shows have been filmed in the area in recent years.

In fact, Tony Stark's cabin in Avengers: Endgame is located at about an hour's drive from the Ozark house.
