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.
Imagine my excitement when I heard from the homeowner herself, saying she enjoyed reading my post and the comments about her house! Not only that, but she said she was putting the house on the market soon and would let me know as soon as it was listed.
Well, the house is now officially on the market, and she sent me the listing. It’s in Upper Nyack, New York, and the asking price is a little under $2 million.
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:

And how it looked in Stepmom (which was a set based on the real thing):

The homeowner has a blog where she has posted additional, informal photos of the house that you can see here.
Jackie’s (Susan Sarandon’s) kitchen in Stepmom:
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 they were 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.”
