One of the most iconic residences in pop culture history, the Los Angeles residence used as the exterior for “The Brady Bunch” home, is now on the market for $1.8 million.
According to a Los Angeles Times report
, “The Brady Bunch” aired from 1969 to 1974 and has been a rerun staple ever since. Violet and George McCallister purchased the property in 1973 for $61,000 and have updated its interiors over the years. The couple has passed away and the sale is being handled by their estate.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom house boasts approximately 2,500-square feet of living space and is based on a 12,500-square-foot lot near the Los Angeles River. Although the property played a relatively minor role in the classic series—all of the interior scenes were filmed in a studio, with the house only turning up in establishing shots and time-passage interludes—it has nonetheless attracted the devotion of “Brady Bunch” fanatics. Ernie Carswell, a Douglas Elliman agent who is listing the property, said the sale has generated a lot of attention.
“We’re preparing for an avalanche,” he said. “E-mails, telephone calls—we may see upwards of 500 calls a day … I just don’t think we can have a Sunday open house where 1,000 people show up. We’d be inviting chaos.”
