John Wick’s House is Real – We Found It in a Small Village in Long Island, NY
A massive hit with action movie fans and critics alike
the neo-noir action franchise sees Keanu Reeves play John Wick, a legendary hitman that comes out of retirement in his quest for vengeance.
John Wick's secluded contemporary house
And beyond the movie's action-packed scenes, stellar acting and cool cars, there's one other thing that stood out to movie goers:
Before Wick’s house turns into a shooting range,
we get a glimpse of the modern architecture and the home's perfectly appointed interiors.
Unfortunately, soon after that, the character’s life is turned upside down and we don't get to see the house again. But since it makes such an impression, we were naturally intrigued.
So we set out to track the house’s real-life counterpart and maybe catch a glimpse of that driveway that housed Wick’s Ford Mustang Mach 1 — the car that basically started this whole thing.
As it turns out, the house DOES exist in real life,
and it’s almost like it was custom-designed for Keanu Reeves’ character.
It's set in Mill Neck, N.Y.,
a small village on the North Shore of Long Island that has a little over 1,000 residents.
It dates back to the '70s
The white stucco house was built in 1971, but was heavily renovated in 2009 by Narofsky Architecture/Ways2Design.
The Narofsky team incorporated a new atrium space to attach to a new wing that included a garage, a maid’s room, and a mudroom.
The extensive renovation transformed the interiors
and turned a three-bedroom suite into a media and recreation room with stunning water views.
The exterior of the house wraps around a courtyard on two sides, where the architects were careful to preserve the age-old cherry and magnolia trees.
