One of my all-time favorite movie houses has to be the gorgeous 1850s Victorian with the wraparound porch in the Julia Roberts-Susan Sarandon tear-jerker Stepmom. It was one of the first movie houses I wrote about when I started my Movie Mondays series back in 2008, and it continues to be one of the most popular.
So imagine my excitement when I heard from the homeowner herself, saying she enjoyed my post about her house and that she’s selling it. It’s in Upper Nyack, New York, and the asking price is a little under $2 million. Here’s how it looks in the listing today:
If the house looks familiar, but you never saw Stepmom, it may be because it was also used in the more recent movie The Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, posing as a Bed & Breakfast called “Cupid’s Cabin.”
The front door as shown in the listing:
Would I kill for this front porch? Don’t tempt me.
If the interior photos look familiar, it’s because the Stepmom sets were actually modeled on many of the real rooms in the house. Here’s the front door and staircase in the real house:
Here’s how the staircase looked in Stepmom:
The living room in the listing:
And in Stepmom, which was reportedly a set based on the real thing:
The dining room:
A cozy upstairs landing with fireplace:
Another sitting room:
The real kitchen:
I especially like this eat-in breakfast nook with the tall windows all around:
Here’s how Jackie’s kitchen looked in Stepmom (it was a set — not the real thing):
The house has 8 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 6 fireplaces. It was built in 1854 and has over 5,000 square feet.
Here’s how that upstairs landing looks in the movie–you can see it was inspired by the real thing:
The listing describes the house as the “Extraordinary French Second Empire Victorian gem ‘Glenholme,'” which boasts “Sweeping Hudson River views from every room.”
The homeowner has a blog where she has posted additional, informal photos of the house that you can see here.
For more photos and information, check the listing (UPDATE: sorry, it sold!).
Many thanks to Patrice, the homeowner, for sharing it with us. You can see my original post about the house with more photos and information about the movie itself here.
