Are You Hooked?

  • If there’s a “For Sale” sign in my neighbor’s yard, I can tell you how much they’re asking for their house–and whether it’s worth it.
  • I have a habit of checking the real estate listings online, even though I’m not planning to move.
  • I think the best time to take a walk is at dusk–after people have started turning on their lights, but before they have closed their blinds!
  • I’ve been known to visit Open Houses and model homes, just for fun.
  • I will stop to take a photo of a beautiful house if I have a camera with me.
  • When I visit someone’s home, I immediately start looking around to see what changes they’ve made since the last time I was there.
  • I get upset when I see a beautiful old home that looks neglected and unloved, and I fantasize about “rescuing” it.
  • I would go to a neighbor’s party just to get a look inside their house.
  • I have considered becoming a real estate agent, or have been told I should be one.
  • I’ve been known to check out the local house listings when I’m on vacation to see how much it would cost to live there.
  • If I drive through a pretty neighborhood, I slow to a crawl so I don’t miss anything.
  • I’m always redecorating my house. It’s never “finished.”
  • There are certain movies I have watched repeatedly because of the houses featured in them.

If you can relate to these, then you’re hooked on houses like I am. You’ve come to the right place! Welcome to the club. :-)

I absolutely love this website! It is amazing! I am completely obsessed with decorating. I am a newly married 19 year old and my husband and I strived and saved for the past few years before our marriage save up for a home. I am proud to say that we just purchased our first home about two months ago. As a child I grew up in rundown rent houses and I always dreamed of having a pretty home. I came across this site while searching for the house from the movie Stuart Little. I feel like I found a free subscription to the best decorating magazine in the world!!!!!

I can’t believe I’ve found this site. Looking for some info this morning on the Connecticut house from Bringing up Baby and stumbled on this site! My ab fab thing to do is to scan trulia or zillow looking at old homes by setting the “year built” parameters for say 1600 – 1949. I’ve seen some amazing places and now I know that there are others out there like me! Thank you thank you thank you!

I almost always describe the house in a movie when people ask me about a movie and it drives my husband and sons crazy.I have been asked if that is the only reason I watch.I have watched parent trap a million times because I love the ranch in it.That would be the 1st parent trap.

I love visiting this site over and over to see what is new. I must have viewed Stuart Little and Sex and the City Charlotte York’s apartment a million times. They are my favorites. I saw the movie 27 Dresses today and it had gorgeous interiors. I would love to see more of it on the website!

I’m hooked alright… on your site! How fun, I could browse it all day. It’s comforting to know that others share my obsession. I especially enjoyed your posts about the Bewitched house and Mary Richard’s apartment. It’s great to see the sets again, and read the behind the scenes stuff.

Saw the posts about the Nate show, and have to agree with the other posters. Nate is an awesome decorator, but the show is a bit scattered. After watching a couple episodes, I started fast-forwarding through them, then after 2 weeks, stopped taping altogether.

I spent several years, from five to eight, in a dilapidated mansion. So I guess I come by my fascination with architecture naturally. I watched soap operas in the 70′s, just to see the characters’ homes. Also was in love with the little cottage Priscilla Presley’s character lived in with her TV daughter on Dallas. I remember lots of rose patterned upholstery or slipcovers. Would love to see that again!

My first time visiting your site. And I agreed to all but one of the above statements…I’ve never gone into an Open House (but always wanted to). I will definately be checking in again. Already tour Halle, Diane and Charlie’s home. I cant believe there is another person out there who is into houses as much as me. So I have a question for you…Have you ever watched Under the Tuscan Sun and if so……how many times?

Every item on the 20-question quiz is me! I’ve been obsessed with houses since I was a little girl, and no, they do not have to be McMansions. In fact, grand homes and overly-designed rooms are often the least interesting to me. I dream about houses, almost every night–anybody else?

You have forgotten these to add to your list :
-Looking up other peoples conversions/extensions’ drawings on the Council’s planning websites for fun to see house drawings
-Looking at property whilst on holiday in different countries to imagine what I’d by & what I’d do with it
I only found your site today, 31.12.2010, and didn’t know there were other people who had the same interest as me. I have just finished adding two bedrooms and bathrooms to my house whose decor is based on inspiration from TV & film (Poirot/BBC Miss Marple with a Soho House eclectic twist and Sound of Music/Breakfast at Tiffanys). Yours is a wonderfully inspiring site, thank you.

Elvira December 31, 2010 at 3:46 pm

I stumbled on your website looking for more info on Barton Cottage from Sense and Sensibility (which I have watched more times I can count) to really see the panelling in the front room. Did I hit the jackpot or what? On top of that I found Kathleen Kelly’s house in You’ve Got Mail, my favourite! Julia, you have the most wonderful blog. I spend hours clicking from link to link and just marvel at the imagination and inspiration of your fellow bloggers. Needless to say I scored 100% on the quiz. I am well and truly hooked on houses!
If I may suggest a couple of movies to feature: Message in a Bottle with Kevin Costner and Robin Wright. Her house in Chicago and his beach house in the Outer Banks are fantastic. Also another Kevin Costner film, For The Love of the Game with Kelly Preston, her home in it is a dream.
I’m a great fan of great English country houses and picturesque cottages in films. I love the BBC series of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple mysteries with Joan Hickson first, because of her handbag (I know I’m loopy-loop), and second because of the fabulous cottages. Midsomer Murders TV series showcases some fantastic cottages too.
Have a great 2011 and hope to see many more fab features in the new year. I’ll be back for sure!

13 out of 13
In fact, I did sell Real Estate some years back, just because I love to see houses. I got hooked on the Great Impressions MSN group until it closed because I could look in other people’s houses and migrated over to ning. I used to spend hours on HGTV’s Rate My Space but some of the users got so stinkin’ mean-spirited and ugly, I just couldn’t do it anymore. I love wandering through real people’s houses just as much as model homes and celebrity homes. I know just what’s wrong with the house across the lake that has been for sale for 3 years. You are the very first person I followed on Twitter and love this site. Blessings to you! Keep ‘em coming! You are a treasure. Shay

I searched the net to see if there are any house plans out there or if there is any information out there on the house from the show, but I couldn’t find anything. I would love it if you would do a post on their house! It was such a cute and fun show and it has been really fun to watch it again.

I am soooo hooked and thankful for your wonderful site! Wish I had found it sooner, because I find it so comforting to look at a beautifully decorated home. I especially love homes that are near the water like seaside cottages. Glad to see that the house from “Her Alibi” will be featured soon which I had rented long ago just to see the house (that was before Netflix). They say that your home is your haven. One can only dream and your site makes it just a little more real. Thank you so much!

Still “Hooked”, tho’ I answered “NO” to almost all of the above. I don’t care what the price is on houses–since it’s almost always negotiated. And (unlike most New Englanders) I am vehemently AGAINST “snooping” or in any way barging into the lives of my neighbors, unless they barge into MINE (which has happened). I Like MLS, precisely because it lets me check out the houses I want, without accosting my neighbors (good or bad) in person!

oohhh fantastic,

Like many I watch the same films over and over for the houses, favourite.. mm you’ve got mail house, love the little furnishings and ornaments, oh and love hanging up’s house simply gorg… oh and practical magic, I now have that kitchen!!
step mom, beautiful hallway i have that too, I have a pretty detached house in England so not as big as your American homes but beautiful non the less, and I am hooked on decorating, drive my hubby and daughter potty, oh and i am always having a change around… makes me chuckle when they bump into things then moan about my “Monica state of mind” so glad I’m not alone in my addiction. Have you managed to review the house from panic room? great house.
next weekend I’m off to see the house used in pride and prejudice, can’t wait. Keep up the fab work.. Hugs xx

I too just found your website and am in love. We are not alone in our obsession for houses, thank goodness. I am going through all of your info so forgive me if you already know this. But one strange movie you all should watch for an amazing house is Fight Club with Edward Norton and Bradd Pitt. It sounds like an odd place to look for a beautiful house but I have watched it three times just to look at the house. They built it for the movie and just like Practical Magic they tore it down after the movie, so sad. Anyway I have a question as well. Does anyone know if you can buy the house plans for the houses they built for movies. Just curious, and thanks again for the website- I am Hooked.

I am watching HGTV’s Property Brothers” and I don’t like it. The show seems too scripted’ The brothers are pushy with the clients. They promise them the moon, so to speak. They always discover or have a disaster happen; that runs the cost up; the clients act upset; but go ahead with the project anyway and in the end they all live happily ever after. Just wondered if you have seen it.

lol Bring back Clive Pierce doing anything.
I used to watch HGTV for 12-14 hours a day, however, not anymore.

I log on everyday looking for something new and wondering if I have missed anything. I love how un-biased you are by sending us to other TV/Movie websites for more info on our favs. I have enjoyed those as well. I was wondering If you could get pictures of Mariah Carey’s house. I really love her and was wondering which house she actully bought. There are so many different stories. One, that she bought the Fleur de lys for a bargan price of $50 mill. instead of the $125mil (great bargan huh lol). and the other is that she bought Farrah Fawcetts former home for around $6mil. which I know was beautiful also. I would really love if you could find out. Please. Also, interior designer Laura McGuire’s “Dallas Cottage” was featured in Better Homes & Garden Magezine in July of 2007. I wondering if you could more pictures of her home. I really want to decorate my home the same way. I know you love small cottages, I do too. Can you please find that one. Thanks.

Oh my goodness! I came upon this website by looking for pix of Rachel Zoe’s new house which I loved looking at during the shows but just couldn’t see every detail well enough. I have been on the site all day……between fixing a pot roast……and serving it. This website is genius. I will watch movies again and again to catch details of the houses. Same with TV shows. I checked almost every single point on the “Are you hooked” quiz. I can study the pix on a real estate listing forever, scanning every little detail. My favorite movie house is The Diane Keaton/Jack Nicholson one. I was thrilled to be able to see stills on this site. And as of today, my favorite TV house for beautiful detail and ideas, which I’ve never seen before, was Browns. Thank you, thank you……..for all your hard work…….you are my kind of gal.

Program named agatha christy’s Poirot, episode “Tradgedy at Marsdon Manor”. It looked like an old victorian estate. I’ve searched several places for info. Want to know where it is and see pictures like on your site. It had a wonderful attached conservatory. Just gorgous. Hope to here from you soon. Sincerely, Martha Reins. PS.

Oh my! I just love this website and I am OFFICIALLY hooked (not just on houses, but on this blog)!!!
I have ALWAYS loved houses, interiors mostly. As a girl on road trips, I would ask for a bathroom break, just for the chance to look on the inside of another space (even if it was just a nasty gas station restroom). Often I would put my sisters to sleep at night (we all shared the same room) explaining the floor plans of some of my friends’ houses. Luckily my dad noticed my funny quirk and would indulge me by bringing home magazines like, “Architectural Digest” or even better, “Home Plans!” I would spend hours paging the contents dreaming of the space that I would one day get to decorate myself! It has been fun, these past 14 years of marriage, to try to turn my houses into homes on shoestring budgets, but I still cannot get enough of the “dreaming” aspect of it. This website will be my favorite new escape I am sure!
I am ELATED to see that there are so many people reading your posts and that they are all just as crazy as I am about houses! I never thought that I was “normal” but I guess with this many “out of the closet” house lovers, being hooked on houses is the new normal! Thanks for providing such a fun getaway!

As I sit in a rented house belonging to my neighbor across the street from my house lost through a nasty divorce…my house sits all alone with it’s hardwood floors, granite counters, expansive deck and storage shed built by my now ex-husband 8 years ago. After 5 houses and 30 years of marriage he decided to abandon the things he spent a lifetime accomplishing. My neighbor’s house is similar in structure, though it lacks the aforementioned items…I still can’t understand how she could have lived in a place you call home with husband and children for 10 years and not so much as install a concrete slab for the patio, nor build a storage shed…perhaps it’s true what they say about hair dressers having the worst hair because this homeowner is a realtor…I laugh on the outside and thank God for what He has allowed me to have, yet quietly mourn my house as though it were somehow human. The silver lining to my story is our straight A student (high school freshman) gets to continue walking to school and has not been too affected by this awful mess…the irony is the rent and utilities covers the mortgage of my former house across the street. The blessing is I was awarded Lifetime Alimony. Thank you for your Blog…I thoroughly enjoyed visiting.

Hi,
Before I saw your website, I didn’t know there were other people that liked to watch movies just because of a beautiful house exterior or interior. Some of my favorites are “The Family Stone”, “Something’s Gotta Give”, and “The Holiday”. The decorating in these movies evokes such a feeling of nostalgia and warmth, and I hope I am recreating the same in our home also. A couple other movies with houses with a lot of character, I think, are victorian houses in San Francisco from the show “Party of Five” and the movie “When a Man Loves a Woman” with Meg Ryan and Andy Garcia. The kitchen in “When a Man Loves a Woman” is charming and has so much character with its painted cabinets and chairs and a retro stove. The house in “The Family Man” with Nicolas Cage and Tea Leoni is also a very quaint, charming house also.
Thanks for all your hard work in putting together all the wonderful houses to show everyone. I look forward to checking out the website every day.

I was summoning my determination once more to resume the search for an interior designer or contractor for my very old dilapidated house. The poor layout requires real creativity and I was trying to figure out what you might call that classy fresh style used by Scott McGillivray on ‘HGTV’s Income Property’. Somehow that search has happily landed me at your blog. Any chance you have names of the designers or contractors who’ve worked on some of the non-celebrity homes? Any chance some might be located in Northern NJ? If so, I’m busy bookmarking the design of my dreams.

Would love to hear from you, in the meantime I’m browsing through your previous posts, and loving it.

Hi, I found your sites yesterday when I was looking at beach cottages. Yes I’m hooked. I love houses so much it is ridiculous. I thought my best friend was the only one who could understand my maddness, but now I have found all of you. A great but maybe not so well known movie that I like to watch is one I found on netflix. It is called, “Life as a house.” Great movie, great house and even better scenery since it sits on a clif over looking the ocean. Yo

Hi Julia, I’m hooked alright. I’m a little behind the times, but today I was looking at the listing of the yellow condex in New Hampshire and I’m almost positive that house was used in a commercial where parents of a toddler trying to raise money for college or something, “taught their child to dunk a basketball”, then the dad has to rescue him from hanging on the rim of the basket. I could be wrong but the house looked very familiar and that could explain the odd photos, the House’s 8×10 glossies? I’m also trying to nail down the location of a couple of charming thatched roof cottages in Beechwood Canyon. Another incredible house is the Spadena or Hansel and Gretel house in Beverly Hills, California. It’s been so many years since I’ve seen it and I am so overjoyed that it has been saved. I’ll be back…. your new and devoted fan, Lisa

Hiya,Julia
Mabuhay from Manila, Philippines. I am so excited about your site. I am sooo hooked on houses, that I passed your quiz with flying colors.I just came across your site today as I was searching for pictures of purple houses (I am currently renovating/repainting my small old house and I want it purple with other complementary colors). Yes, I get thrilled with open houses, slow down when passing beautiful houses, take pictures of them, watch movies where there are lovely houses, etc. etc.etc. I am nearing retirement, and plan to build my retirement home , a Hansel and Gretel type, or a Disney cottage type, or a Christmas house, or a giant doll house, with ” a few of my beautiful things” surrounding me, with a tree house in back, where my grandchildren can come visit and live in fantasy.. I have a few photos of houses here and abroad,and now I’m more inspired to take pictures. I have finally found kindred souls. Will definitely get hooked on your site as well. Thanks! You are awesome!

Daisy

I just found your site by accident and I absolutely love it.I took your quiz and passed with flying colors.It is so good to see that other people are just like me.I have loved decorating ever since I was a child and can’t get enough of looking at other peoples houses.I love to see the creative way that people express themselves with their surroundings.Personally I love the primitive look and sometimes its hard to find others that share that love but I appreciate everyones style as long as they have one.I will be looking at your site daily and enjoying everything you show.I even have a shih tzu myself named Wrigley.My husband is very understanding about my love of houses and just lets me be me and do my thing.I live in Montana in a rural setting on a river which at times can be very hard so its so nice to be able to enjoy your site.Thank you so much You made my day.

I am glad I found this website! Since I was a little girl I’ve been obsessed with houses. When I was 11, I went to a bookstore with my parents and they told me that I could get any book I wanted. While my sisters went to the ‘tween’ sections, I went straight over to the home design area. I got a book with over 600 house plans. That book was my 2nd bible. :P I’m so glad that there are others just as much ‘hooked on houses’ as I am! Thank you for creating this!

Just stumbled across your wesite this morning also looking for an explanation on the new hostess for ‘Property Virgins’. Love to see there are other ‘Nuts’ like me that love to see new ideas. I am 67 and my favorite movie growing up was ‘Mr. Blanding Builds His Dreamhouse’ with Cary Grant. It got me hooked on the experience of building and designing my own homes (2). One just cannot expect a smooth ride, but it’s very satisfying…one just has to focus on the details. Anyway, thanks for your website.

Julia,
I answered yes to just about all the questions. I thought I was hooked on houses, and now I am sure of it. I am taking Real Estate courses in the Austin, TX area and your blog gets me more excited about the new season in my life. I love all the content. It is so informational, inspirational, and fun. I did notice that you do not have the homes in Sweet Home Alabama movie listed, nor the one’s from the show Royal Pains. I just thought I would throw that out there as they have some amazing homes fetured in both of those.
I will continue to follow you.

OMG! I’m not the only house stalker on the planet. Not only did I answer yes to ALL of your “are you hooked” questionnaire, but I actually went one step further and became a real estate agent to look at other houses. I have always remembered movies and tv shows more for their homes than their plots. And I am also going to admit that sometimes, I watch a show over and over and then try and draw the floor plan of the house and then file it in my “house box”. Feeling better now knowing I am not alone.

Yes, I’m definitely hooked. I’m a lookiloo through and through.
I’ve been hooked for years and was thrilled to review your list to find that I’m not alone.
Yesterday, I got home from work to find our neighbours had listed their house, so I immediately went in to take a look at the listing and photo gallery. They’ve never invited us in, so needless to say I was extremely curious. Unfortunately, showings are by appointment only.
That said, I recently made an appointment to view a house on my friends’ behalf as she wasn’t in town and I really wanted to see the house – the realtor knew and I got my house fix.
Love your site!

This is the best blog for obsessed house lovers ever! I am always looking for neglected houses to renovate. I recently purchased a 1953 cottage in Sandy Hook,Ct. The house was being sold by the family of the original owner,who had passed away.
I don’t believe much had been done to the house since it was built. It was so much fun to take this little cottage and give it new life.
My son bought the house from me and is enjoying it now.
Have my eye on another house in Roxbury, Ct. It is a simple colonial built in the 1800′s.It is post and beam construction and needs a total renovation.
This blog has so many talented people to get ideas from…….I love it! Thank you.

There is a particular house on Cape Cod (mansion, sorry, not just a house)…It’s called Highfield Hall and its survival is nothing short of a miracle…I became obsessed with it 20 years ago when it was an abandoned, run-down mess owned by the conservatory.

Julia,

What a wonderful site!! I just took your quiz and answered yes to everyone one of them. I love driving around looking at houses and speculating how the layouts are. I’ve dragged my husband into neighbourhoods for long slow leisurely walks so I can look at house designs and landscaping.

I was searching for house plans in general when I stumbled over you site. You see, I play a game called The Sims 2 & The Sims 3 and in those games – aside from playing with your pixielated dollies, you can build and decorate a house. I play a little but build and decorate more so I was looking for some nice houses I could build and voila… here we are. I’ve built lots of houses for my “sims” and the only movie house I’ve built so far is Charlize Theron and Jason Batemans house in the movie Hancock. I love that house. I know it’s not a real one – just a set but I loved it anyway and built it for my game. At any rate, I’ve just bookmarked your site and will be visiting many more times in the future to check up on updates. Thanks for putting a huge smile on my face.

I was astounded to see this website. I thought it was just me that obsessed over houses, mine and everyone else’s. But here’s something I’d like to know–I’m always amazed when watching House Hunters and other similar programs at the amount of money people are able to spend on a renovation or to purchase a home. I especially get a chuckle out of the couple who walk into a home that I would consider reasonably stylish and up to date, and immediately start kvetching and saying how it all has to be gutted. And they often seem so young to have the kind of finances that would allow it. Is it just me that wonders about this?

Hi Julia, I’m new here and loving the site! Thought I would pass on a couple of my own crazy house lover habits. Not sure if your local newspaper has a House of the Week, but ours does and when we were kids my brother and I used to cut those plans out of the paper every week while we discussed what we liked and what we would change about the design. Then we would beg our parents for graph paper so we could design our own dream house. Were still designing it but we buy our own graph paper now. :-)

These days I work with realtors, and I’ve written and recorded over 11,000 audio home tours. I know, right? I’ve been at this for over ten years now and I still love poking around in other people’s houses, even if it is only on line. As you can imagine, I’ve seen some pics that would make your toes curl. My biggest gripe? Why take pictures of something that doesn’t come with the house? I did one tour where the only pic of the family room was a pic of a fireplace, naturally I mentioned the fireplace in the tour. Turned out it was electric and not included! Go figure.

Your site is wonderful! Have you seen “Leave Her to Heaven,” the original with Gene Tierney? (1945) The interiors are gorgeous, right out of Architectural Digest.

Even the scenes in the train at the beginning of the movie are lovely — a time when travel was truly elegant.

Ha, ha… only 3??? What if I said yes to ALL the questions?! Does that mean I’m obsessed LOL?? Wonderful blog and website. Wish there was a way to subscribe, so I never miss one of your entries. Liked on your FB page, but I don’t always read FB everyday, sometimes not every week, so I’m sure I miss some of your entries!… Anyway, love it!
