HGTV Flips ‘Brady Bunch’ House, Lists It for $5.5M (Exclusive)

The Brady Bunch house is back on the market — and, this time, it comes with the interiors of your 1970s TV dreams.

HGTV is selling the Studio City home pictured in hundreds of establishing shots on the famous sitcom not five years after purchasing it for $3.5 million. And given the competitive Los Angeles housing market and the dramatic changes the property’s undergone, it’s going to cost the next buyer a bit more. The asking price is $5.5 million.

Such is the premium for authenticity. After buying 11222 Dilling Street in 2018, the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned network rejuvenated the facade and gutted its interiors — adding a second story to meticulously re-create the show’s living room, kitchen, bedrooms and yard that all previously only existed on Stage 5 of Paramount Studios. The process was chronicled in 2019 event series A Very Brady Renovation, recruiting surviving cast members and HGTV talent to bring the fictional home to life. It proved to be ratings pay dirt and attracted 28 million viewers across a four-week run.

HGTV invested an estimated $1.9 million into the renovations, which included the addition of that iconic floating staircase and the orange-and-avocado kitchen, adding 2,000 square feet to the original footprint in the process. The house has since been used in HGTV specials and other series, most recently Trixie Mattel’s Trixie Motel on Discovery+. But, after four years, the novelty has likely worn off. The network plans to put a portion of the sale’s proceeds toward longtime initiative Turn Up: Fight Hunger, a partnership with No Kid Hungry. (Parent WBD has a goal of providing two billion meals through the initiative to the nine million children living with hunger in the U.S.)

The Brady Bunch only lasted five seasons, but its cultural footprint has endured. The ABC comedy — which followed a blended family of eight, their live-in maid and, at certain points, a dog — ran from 1969 through 1974 before inspiring TV movies, a satirical feature remake (and sequel) and countless pilgrimages to 11222 Dilling Street. It has been called the second most-photographed home in America, trailing only the White House, though there is little evidence to back up such claims.

When the property hit the market in 2018, it was for the first time in 45 years — having not changed hands since 1973. The original asking price was $1.85 million and some speculated that it might be knocked down and redeveloped. The ensuing bidding war — one that included NSYNC singer Lance Bass! — and HGTV’s bold move to dramatically renovate it into the ultimate Brady enthusiast’s abode ensured that would not be the case.

For fans who cannot financially or emotionally commit to living in the pricey house, HGTV will also be selling off much of its contents — including the green floral living room couch and a 3D-printed replica of the series’ horse sculpture. And for those with $5.5 million to burn, the listing is being managed by Danny Brown at Compass.

Were they able to remove the nacreous layer of permacum from the boys' room?

The house comes with Mike's copies of "Drum Magazine," which are still in a drawer in his office, along with a supply of cum rags in the adjacent secret bathroom.

But a carport? At least the Partridge Family house has a garage.

$2 million markup?

That's bullshit.

R3 The listing says it has a two-car garage as well as two parking spaces.

You can see the garage (with a door on it) at the end of the driveway in the street view.

Who would buy this? Imagine paying almost 6 million bucks for that shitty 1970s kitchen.

Lance Bass wanted to buy it when it went on the market, before the HGTV bought it. I wonder if he'd still be interest at its current price? The problem is....no matter how much fun you think it is, nor how rich your are....it really isn't a functional full-time home in 2023. Everything done to it was to recreate the layout of the Brady House that existed partially on a Paramount sound stage, and mostly, in our minds.... not for anyone to actually LIVE IN. As noted in the Redfin Listing: "fireplaces and some appliances/Fixtures are decorative only. This is a "as is where is" sale. "

And if none of the furnishings are included... then really, what IS the point?? If I'm a billionaire Brady fan, willing to drop $5M on it..... I want ALL the furnishings!! ESPECIALLY, the Horse!!

it backs up to the L.A. River, aka the city's concrete flood control channel.

They put in $1.9m? SURE JAN!

I can't believe they aren't including the furniture. Hard to imagine anybody wanting to buy just the (not really livable) house but not the furniture for $5.5 million. I guess we'll see.

The Brady Style is fun and funny to look at - but who'd want to live it?

That "iconic" staircase is just horrible.

Where and how did they add 2000 sqft?

by Anonymousreply 14May 25, 2023 12:02 PM

If my net worth was 50 million or more, I'd buy it just for the fun of it. Turn it into an air b&b or some kind of use like that. Why not?? There are at least 100,000 people in the US worth 50M or more. F U money!

Compared to the other five, single family homes in the same general neighborhood (and not South of the Boulevard), the "Price per Square Foot" for The Brady Bunch Home doesn't appear to be that that far off.

At $1070 per square foot, it's sort of in the middle.

I don’t believe for one second that HGTV spent close to $2mm on this renovation. Did they bulldoze it and start from scratch? Even then I don’t believe it. It’s not a mansion.

Is HGTV including the money they threw at the Brady kids to appear in with that total?

by Anonymousreply 18May 25, 2023 9:42 PM

Part of the immense cost of renovation was that they had to add a second story - but without changing the iconic roofline.

So to do that they dug down, and lowered the first floor, which I imagine didn't come cheap.
