Hi Julie, I really love your site. since i found it some time ago, i usually come check the site after i watch a movie with a great house, to see if there is a matching post. I mostly drift on cloud nine a while when i find it pouring over the pictures.
I just rewatched “The Pacifier” with Vin Diesel after years and noticed the amazing house. Please, please, please do a post on it.
Thanks for your many great posts

Jenny,

Any idea if the estate manor in “The Grass Is Greener” (1960) was real or a set design?

I don’t know, but look it up on IMDb.com. Sometimes it will tell where things were filmed like that.

Love your blog. I think I have an addition for you to consider. It’s the house in Rock Hudson’s “All That Heaven Allows.” In the film, his character renovates an old mill into a house. I had seen the film as a child and the mill house has been stuck in my head since then. Today, I live in a converted barn and love it.
Happy Holidays!

Thanks for so wonderful posts! Every time enjoy reading them with my friends. Most of all I like Revenge house! They are so big, even huge we can say, spacious and there lots of them in the serial (and each one is amazing). Moreover the houses are near the ocean with swimming pools. Maybe I like them because each one costs a lot))) And of course the house from the film “The notebook”, because the main character built it for his love (remember this house the first time you see it in the film and then this huge transformation).

I love your website, it is a great getaway when I need a break from work. I went to the movies last night and watched The Best Man Holiday (great movie, by the way, and great for a grown-up girls night out). There were two scenes, a bathroom and library scene, where I found myself thinking, “I wish this house was on Hooked On Houses so I could learn more about it and/or see more of it.” Right there in the theater, I tell you. Can you work your magic and add this house to your list? Thanks in advance and Happy Holidays!

Years ago, Doris Day made a couple of cute movies with Gordon McRae
She and her family lived in a Victorian dream house. The moldings, wainscotting ,woodwork etc.was fabulous although it was probably a house on a set and not even real but it is a thing to behold
“On Moonlight Bay” and “By the Light of the Silvery Moon” are the titles You might want to check them out Doris is lovely as well

Love everything your doing here. Iam working my way thru all of your postings. But there is one i would really like to see. The haunting. With liam neeson and catherine zeta jones and owen wilson. It a scary thriller more of a suspence type movie. But the mansion is truly the star of the picture. From the intricate carvings that come alive to the gothic deco. But most of all the carosel room. You can watch this movie over and over again and always see something new. I would love to know if its real or done on sets! It would be a challenge to do!!

I also love houses, real ones and TV and movie ones. Here’s my vote for a great movie house: the house that Robin Williams’ character and his wife buy in The World According to Garp. Has to be one of the greatest film scenes involving a house in the last 30 years. I still quote that scene. Here’s a link to it below, even YouTube has it. By the way, love your blog.

We love “The Middle” and catch the re-runs daily in syndication.
We are confused by the floor plan though and there seem to be changes in the layout from early shows to later ones. We’ve noticed they also switched the design of the white post room dividers. Do you have a floor plan or any idea where access to the garage is? The end of the hallway is the boys’ room instead of an exit to the garage, which has us confused.
Also, back yard shots show a wooden deck, but interior shots show the kitchen patio doors opening onto concrete.
Any answers you could provide would be appreciated – thank you!

Very enthusiastic follower of Hooked on Houses here. I’m also a relatively new fan of the Australian series, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. Season one is on Netflix, and it’s a marvelous 1920s show with phenomenal sets, costuming, and a main character who is basically a female James Bond with sass. But I was surprised to find very little online about Miss Phryne Fisher’s gorgeous jazz era home. Every time there’s a scene there, (which is often) I cannot focus for distraction by the beautiful sets….especially the Art Nouveau meets Deco wall stenciling and the sumptuous jewel box room colors.

Whether or not it features in a future post here, I definitely recommend the show.

I’m obsessed with your page. I’ve been watching the Netflix series “House of Cards” and I think the home in that series is a really interesting set. I would love to see a post on it!

Reply

hookedonhouses February 17, 2014 at 4:37 pm

That’s a good one. It looks like a real house they’re filming in, doesn’t it? I’d love to know if it is or if it’s just a really convincing set. Thanks, Brandon!

I just found the answer to my own question. The Underwood home was a set built inside a warehouse in Maryland, according to IMDb.com:

“Production was based in a 300,000+ Sq. Ft. Warehouse in the fashion Industrial District in Joppa, MD. The set is actually part of an older Macy’s Distribution Center, and all the driving scenes were performed in a Green Screen Room, which served as a refrigerator for Fur Coats. Inside the building the following sets can be found: Oval House, The Underwood Home (Upper Lower and Main levels), House of Congress, Various State Representative’s offices, South Carolina Governors Office, various plush hotel suites.”

Thanks for looking into that! It does look so real, I’m kind of surprised! I assumed the government buildings were all sets, but the house seemed so real to me!

I don’t know if anyone has mentioned this one, but I all now as I don’t see it listed yet. I am having to ‘stop frame’ and take pics from the tv for shots of the various rooms on the set of COVEN. The decoration is so ‘on trend’ and I love it. The white washed, simplicity and vintage/Gustavian styling is just fabulous. Can you get some good shots, sans the actors? Would really, really appreciate what you could do.

Hi! Love the site. I always thought I was the only one obsessed with beautiful homes from films, and I’m glad I’m not the only one! Two houses I love but don’t see here and would love to see more of are two from great great movies (totally rec. the movies if you haven’t seen them!). One is Celeste and Jesse Forever: The main character Celeste lives somewhere in Los Angeles and a cozy yet modern home, and there’s a small guest house/studio in the back. Another great film house and great film is from Ruby Sparks, the main character Calvin’s house. It also looks to be in the LA area, and the house is just beautiful (I fell in love with the outdoor pool area) I’ve looked up some exterior pictures of the homes in case you haven’t seen the films (which again I recommend) Thank you!

I have just watched an episode of Hart to Hart, an old favourite that I hadn’t seen in decades, and immediately thought of you. Their home is beautiful and I would love to see it on your site.
Also I agree with the dislike for open kitchens. Cooking smells are unpleasant out with mealtimes, and who wants to listen to their dishwasher/washing machine/drier every time it is on. The kitchen is a workplace. It is good to close the door on it.

It’s called “How to Murder Your Wife” w Jack Lemmon, Virna Lisi and Claire Trevor. I won’t tell you the plot, but the house is a cool bachelor pad 60s townhouse in NY. I swear half the time I watch the movie is to see the house, the other is to hear Claire Trevor shout from behind a closed door “Harold I heard that”.

Dear Julie, I know you hear this often, but it’s true, this is a great site if you’re into houses and in particular, TV/movie houses. Anyway, just finished watching that dreadful movie: ‘Grown-ups 2′. (No I’m not an Adam Sandler fan and to be blunt, I wouldn’t recommend any other intelligent adult either.) However, the house they filmed in (as Sandler and Salma Hayek residence) was – to say the least – phenomenal. After viewing, I googled and located the actual house. It’s in Marblehead Massachusetts. Google: 204 Ocean Avenue, Marblehead, MA. Zillow and Trula state the house was built in 1900, 7 thousand plus square feet, and would list at around 5 mil. If you watch this movie, my apologizes in advance. Thank you for your time and for creating this wonderful site, (it does much good for those who appreciate good architecture – my own background is in construction and architecture.) Have a good weekend. Sincerely, gary, nyc PS, That ‘summer cottage’ from the movie: ‘Dan In Real Life’, my family rented it 18 months BEFORE the movie was filmed !

Yes, it is a 2 story (3 story?) Colonial that is supposed to be located in Brooklyn or Queens NY. The interior shots are just of the dining room, study, and kitchen. So I suppose they are on a soundstage. It’s on a rise, on a street that is busy. We have watched it since it’s inception and the house has never changed. I would love to know more more about it if you have a way to find out. “Blue Bloods” airs on Friday nights on CBS at 10 o’clock.

I’m surprised you never did a post on the houses in “Desperate Housewives”? Being from Oz it was this show that made me wake up and fall in love with the home styles of North America. If only I had noticed it sooner! I wish Australian houses were like the American and Canadian homes (e.g. basements, clapboard, porches, dormer windows, shingle roofs, mud rooms, etc.) Anyway just a suggestion… and I love your site I’ll definitely be coming back to check out other Hollywood homes like the beach house from “Revenge”!

The sets for the mansion were absolutely to die for! If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it just for that (you can always play it on mute ;) ). Thanks!

If you’d like a “sneak,” there are a handful of images of the sets on the Art Director’s website (he also has images from other movies on which he as worked which are pretty interesting, accessible through the Portfolio page ):

…and you can check out the mansion they used for exterior shots, the Ladies’ Library, and the Billiard Room just through a Google Search of “Thornewood Castle.”

I think I have looked at pretty much all of the houses by now and wow you have done a fantastic job.
I want to recommend something a little bit more unusual when it comes to interior design in movies.
First one is Jasper’s quirky and warm house in the woods from Children of Men. That is how a future hippy house looks like!
Second is the interior(s) the cult classic Harold and Maude.
Also check out Moonrise Kingdom.
And all the interiors from French and Italian movies… The list is too long.

Hi Julie. I just fount this on Wikipedia:

“Only the aerial footage of Lakeshore Drive was actually shot in Grosse Pointe…The city of Grosse Pointe Farms did not allow the filmmakers to use any shots of Grosse Pointe South High School for the movie due to the presence of alcohol in the reunion scenes. The majority of the film was shot in Monrovia, California…In a 1997 interview, actor John Cusack, who shares the film’s screenwriting credit along with Jankiewicz, Steve Pink, and D.V. DeVincentis, said he would have liked to film on location in Grosse Pointe, but they were unable to move production to Michigan due to budget constraints.

The scene where Martin is attacked by LaPoubelle while exploring the halls of his old high school was filmed at Reseda High School in the San Fernando Valley.”

Hi Jenny! Thank you so much for this amazing resource for TV and movie homes. I like to recreate my favorite homes using the Sims 3 and your site has saved me hours of research and photo hunting to get all the details.

Now for my request…I’m a huge fan of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries and have been falling in love with it all over again watching it on Netflix.
In Season 1 Episode 6, The Secret of the Whispering Walls, a Victorian Queen Anne farmhouse is featured. I’ve scoured the internet and can’t find anything about it. I’d like your help with two things, one: finding the historical background of this lovely home (is it a set or real?) and two: figuring out a tentative floor plan including the secret passages and underground caverns. Something similar to what you’ve done for “Meet Me in St. Louis: The Victorian on Kensington Ave.”.
I couldn’t find any still images of the home, but If you stream the episode on Netflix the exterior first appears at about 9 minutes in. If Netflix isn’t an option, there are other sources online sources to watch it (I wasn’t sure about your policy on links to external sites, so I erred on the side of caution and excluded them. If you would like me to post links I’m happy to do so).

Thank you for any help you can offer with this project. I greatly appreciate all the time and effort you’ve expended to bring us all such wonderful details about the homes we fell in love with on TV. Thank you!!

hookedonhouses July 11, 2014 at 2:17 pm

Hi Alissa! I just went and watched that episode of the Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries you mentioned and that farmhouse is pretty fabulous. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to track down houses from individual TV episodes like that, especially when they’re that old. According to IMDb.com, they mostly shot on the backlot at Universal Studios, though, so there’s a good chance the farmhouse was one of the houses on it, too, I guess!

Love your site! I often re-watch “Something’s Gotta Give” just to admire the house and gain some pointers.

I have another TV show to add to your list: “The O.C.” The series ended about 7 years ago but I have it on DVD. It takes place in Orange County (O.C.) and primarily in this amazing “Mc-Mansion” (fellow fans will get this reference) belonging to the main characters. Also, their pool house is so awesome. The juvenile delinquent/heart throb boy they take in lives in it, so it is in many shots. I highly recommend you check it out for the house alone….

I just watched “Curse of the Cat People” (1944) and it has a very pretty house in it. The movie itself was a little different. It was a sequel to “Cat People” (1943) which was surprisingly good (I’ve been watching a lot of random old films on Turner Classic Movies lately and these were on today). There are a couple of pictures of the house on google images but they aren’t very good. I may go back through the movie myself and take some screen shots. I love the little girl’s bedroom the best. It’s shown about 19 minutes into the film.

Hello Julie,

I became aware of your site just recently and have been enjoying it. I was wondering if you are familiar with the TV show Maron on IFC? The main character lives in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles in a very nice, modestly sized house. I don’t know if the house used for exterior shots is the same one the show is filmed in, or (probably more likely) interior filming is done on sets, but whoever did the set design has been rummaging in my brain. There’s all kinds of nice detailing and a great midcentury vibe from both the house itself and the furnishings. I was wondering if it’s possible for you to find out more info about it? Thanks so much.

There is one more movie with a gorgeous house I couldn’t find in your list: “The War of the Roses”. You probably know the one.
It’s quite old 1989 movie about a rich couple who are getting divorced.
Barbara found an old mansion, they bought it and she eventually created a gorgeous home. There are lovely lounge, very interesting kitchen, beautiful bedroom in the house.
This story is pretty much about home as Barbara was in a war with her husband trying to get the house after divorce. Basically everything is happening inside of the house.

One more time – thank you for all the beauty you share with us.

(I did find out on imdb that they were all sets – EXTREMELY depressing). Would LOVE to duplicate the loft space!!

Hi,
Just love your site and the homes featured. A few years back I watched an old B&W movie classic from 1941 called “When Ladies Meet” starring Joan Crawford, Greer Garson and Robert Taylor. The two homes featured in it are beauties especially Spring Byington’s “country home” outside of NYC. Very similar to my all time favorite screen movie homes, KH’s in “Bring Up Baby” and BS’s in “Christmas In Connecticut”. TCM played it last week and I HAD to watch it again. I thought of you and your site while watching it and wondered if you had ever seen it. It’s filled with the cozy pricilla curtains, fireplaces, window seats and even a beautiful canopied bed. I know you will love it. It won an Academy Award for art direction.
Thanks again for supplying us “house junkies” with scrumptious “eye candy”.

I love this site so much. Please, please, please can we have images of the Underwood home from House Of Cards?

That’s a good one. Amazing that they built the house inside a warehouse — you’d never know it. Thanks, Joanne!

You need to add Netflix “Bitten” to your list of houses. Their home “Stonehaven” is beautiful. Also Netflix “Hemlock Grove” series the Godfrey’s have a great mansion…although I have to sheepishly admit I find the Romancek’s mobile home in the woods interesting too.

Hello,

I was watching a rerun on Mommie Dearest tonight and was wondering if the house used for most of the film as the home of Joan Crawford with the big staircase was a real house or just sets? Just wondering if you might have any information on it?

Hi William! I’m not sure if the interiors were sets or not, but according to IMDb.com, this was the house that was used for exteriors, at least:

Hi Julie,

Love this site, well done.
Are you able to add the Grown Ups2 house?

Thanks,
Irene

I forgot I had started researching that one until you mentioned it, Irene! I’ve got so many half-finished movie houses I’m working on I sometimes lose track. Ha.

You need to watch (and post information on) the classic British 1970s TV series “Upstairs, Downstairs”–the large Bellamy home in London’s Belgravia, 165 Eaton Place, was almost a character in itself on that wonderful program, with multiple floors, public and private rooms, servants quarters, etc.

I really miss the house of SHELBY in the movie “Love wedding marriage”.
Loved her cool loft!
Please put some photos of her house.

(Love this page) Greetings from Norway :-)

Has anyone ever asked about the house/funeral home in the movie ‘My Girl’? That porch is to die for!

Oh, wow, I haven’t seen that movie in years! Thanks, Charity.

I never thought to watch that show for the sets. Maybe I need to check it out — thanks, Melinda.
