Here’s the story of a couple who bought a split-level ranch in Los Angeles’s studio city in 1973 for just $61,000 and lived in the home for 45 years until their recent passing. During that first year, the house itself was living a double life, finishing up its run as the exterior for the Brady family’s home on the beloved sitcom The Brady Bunch
. Though interior scenes were filmed on a soundstage in studio, the Traditional-style residence appeared in each episode’s opening and closing scenes, as well as in establishing shots.Now on the market for the first time since its claim to fame went off the air, the Brady Bunch house is asking $1.885 million, a small price to pay to live in a piece of showbiz history. The traditional-style residence, which Estately
claims was built in 1959, sits on a .29 acre lot that includes a lush backyard garden. With 2,500 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and three bathrooms, there would have been plenty of space for the beloved blended family.Though the property has been updated and upgraded, listing agents Ernie Carswell and Spencer Daley of Douglas Elliman
describe the estate as a “perfect postcard of American 70’s style and its special culture”.
