After getting repeated requests for pics of the Daddy Day Care house–including one e-mail that shouted “I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU NEVER DID THE DADDY DAY CARE HOUSE!!!” I broke down and rented it last week to see what all the fuss was about. Well, this movie had me from the minute it opened on this charming yellow house. What a pleasant surprise!
The 2003 comedy stars Eddie Murphy and Regina King as Charlie and Kim Hinton, a couple trying to make ends meet after he gets laid off. She goes back to work, leaving him to be a stay-at-home dad to their young son Ben (the adorable Khamani Griffin). That’s when he comes up with the idea of starting an in-home day care.

The movie also stars Jeff Garlin (who you may recognize from “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and Steve Zahn as Charlie’s partners in Daddy Day Care.

The woodwork and built-ins are just amazing. One of my favorite rooms in the house.
The Laundry Room:
The “Turret Room:”
Looking up the stairs to the stained-glass window on the landing:
They filmed most exterior scenes on the property, but I’m assuming the interiors were on a soundstage. I could find very little information about the sets, though, so if anyone knows anything about them, fill us in!
