You Can Buy Edward Cullen’s House from “New Moon”

by hookedonhouses on November 19, 2009


Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that New Moon, the sequel to the wildly popular Twilight series, hits theaters Friday. Anyone planning to see it with thousands of screaming girls (and women) the first day?

I was disappointed to hear that a different house was used for the Cullen family of vampires in the new film than they used for Twilight. Looks like they tried to find one that was at least similar in style.

New Moon-Cullen front door

The New Moon house is on the market for $3.3 million, so we get to peek inside. According to the listing by Jason Soprovich, the house is “Arthur Erickson inspired,” exquisitely renovated with post-modern design on a half-acre lot.

New Moon-Cullen house 1

You can see this staircase isn’t open like the one in Twilight was (see photos of that house here).

New Moon-Cullen house 3


New Moon-Cullen house 5

This clip from New Moon was filmed in the Cullen house around the staircase:

It’s a toss up for me. I like them both. However, I prefer sequels to have continuity in setting so I guess I’m feeling partial to the first for that reason.

From these photos, I like this house. Love that fireplace in the kitchen! But it’s still lacking something from what I pictured the house to look like from reading the books. I will not be participating in the mad dash to see the film as soon as it comes out, but only because I fear for my safety. :)

I haven’t read the books or seen the first movie….but I might rent the first and see the second. Love this home. The kitchen is beautiful.

Love it! Love it! Love it! We are referring to the house, of course! As for the movie, we’ll have to wait and see! CDHQ

That house is *fantastic*! I won’t be lining up for the movie though. I’m probably the only woman on the planet that couldn’t care less about vampires or werewolves.

I’m seriously in love with the kitchen. I had no idea about the vampire thing – haven’t seen the TV series and won’t see the film. Vampires? Really?
.-= Jane @ Beach House´s last blog ..Hah! =-.

I don’t think there’s an inch of this place I don’t like. When I scrolled down to the second picture, my eyes literally bugged out! The windows and woodwork are magnificent! Went to the listing page and saved all the photos. This place probably comes the closest to my dream home.
As for Twilight: Never read the books, never saw the first, not planning on watching the second. I did my vampire thing back in the 70s and 80s with Lestat and “The Hunger” etc.
THANK YOU for posting this listing! :-)

No desire to see the movies…..LOVED the books though….I like to keep the characters etc in my head !!! My daughter, she’s the one that turned me on to the books, didn’t like the first movie as much as the book…. I didn’t know about them using a new house will have to let my daughter in on that….. Hmmm not sure how I feel about that !!!

Have you read Julia ???

While this house it beautiful, I do wish that they had used the same one.

Hmmm I haven’t see the first movie yet – but I just rented it so should watch it this weekend. I think I love both houses equally – they’re just gorgeous. I would love to know who buys this house, and if they’re a Twilight fan!

Becky @ Farmgirl Paints November 19, 2009 at 1:09 pm

I’m so excited. I loved this whole series of books. Totally a team Edward fan myself. The house is so cool. I think I like this one better than before, especially the pool in back.

Hi Julia,

Have you ever done a post on the house in “Home Alone”? I re-watched that movie yesterday, and have to say that may be my all-time favorite house. I looked thru your articles and didn’t find anything, so maybe that’s a future post? Thanks!

Yes! “Home Alone” continues to be one of my most popular posts. I’m working on an update of it right now that will include new information, as well. You can see it here:

Thanks! -Julia :-)

Mom in High Heels November 19, 2009 at 2:15 pm

I’m not a fan of either of these houses. They’re pretty, but not my style and so not the Victorian described in the book.

Jen @ After The Alter November 19, 2009 at 2:23 pm

I’m sure some twilight fan will scoop up that house! Ihad no idea they switched the house! I can’t wait to see when I go saturday! Neither houses used is how I pictured it in my head while reading the books…

I don’t care for contempory houses, but this house has some character.

I am looking forward to this movie! I didn’t know they changed the Cullen’s house. Thanks for the new tour.

I am soooo going with some girlfriends tomorrow night around 7ish. I didn’t see the first one in the theatre, so I totally missed out on all the screaming when Edward appeared on screen. :) I’m excited!

(The above post is what happens when you comment before cocktail hour pst.)

That is only $3,100k. I should have bought Loonies in March.

rue November 20, 2009 at 9:08 am

Never read the books or watched the 1st movie. I’m sure they’re great, but I can’t get past the insane love of Edward when my son is almost the same age LOL The houses aren’t my style at all, but after the last post I love it ;)

OMG, I grew up next to that house – I saw the first picture in the blog, and realized I knew that front door!

That’s at least the second major renovation that I know of. Back about 1978 or so it was first renovated – I remember the then owners changing the street that the driveway came out on, perhaps so that the address was then Stevens Drive instead of Deep Dene. It would have been about 1985 (or earlier?) that there were new owners, who added the swimming pool.

It’s a very private house – you can’t see it from the road, and it was very difficult to see from our house as well. No neighbors on the other side, either, and it backs onto a creek.

Sarah November 20, 2009 at 10:44 am

Turns out I’m incorrect – you can now see through the trees to my old house in the Hobby Room picture. They’ve really thinned out that area, used to be much bushier.

Suzette November 21, 2009 at 10:28 am

You know your first blog on the original Cullen house is what got me into the Twilight series (have I said “thank you”????)

I saw New Moon yesterday. The house doesn’t get much screen time but you can see the pool in the background of one of the scenes (the “vote” scene). These MLS pics are beautiful. I’d live there!!!

Enjoy the movie – it is fantastic (IMHO)
Thanks for another great post!

carla fox November 23, 2009 at 12:25 am

I’m surprised no one picked up the “post-modern” faux pas. This house is most definitely NOT post-modern. Post-modern is a term used to describe the style of architecture that was popular in the 1980’s that was the antithesis of modern. Think Michael Graves’ Portland Building, applied ornamentation and pastel colors. This house could be described as contemporary.

hookedonhouses November 23, 2009 at 7:46 am

Good point! -Julia

c December 30, 2009 at 12:43 am

I like the Twilight house better its just looks more like them.

Kari February 17, 2010 at 11:57 am

Wondering if you have any information on the large scale, horizontal format painting hanging in the stairwell room (family/living room) in the scenes from Bella’s birthday party? I’d like to know the name of the artist and where to find him/her. Thank you.

hookedonhouses February 17, 2010 at 2:22 pm

Sorry, Kari, I don’t know anything about that painting. -Julia

Kari February 17, 2010 at 2:33 pm

Shoot. Well, thank you anyway. – Kari
