Eddie Murphy’s 2003 family movie Daddy Day Care grabbed my attention the minute it opened on this charming yellow house.
It’s a real house in Pasadena, California, and has charm to spare.
Let’s take a closer look!
The “Daddy Day Care” House
In Daddy Day Care, Eddie Murphy and Regina King play Charlie and Kim, a couple trying to make ends meet after he loses his job.
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 and Steve Zahn as Charlie’s partners in Daddy Day Care.
Looking through the living room into the dining room:
The woodwork and built-ins are gorgeous. One of my favorite rooms in the house.
Inside the cool, book-lined turret room:
They used the exterior of this house but I believe the interiors were recreated on a separate soundstage.
Lindsay at I Am Not a Stalker tracked the house down and took this photo that shows how it looks today:
Zillow reports that it was built in 1895 and has 5 bedrooms, 2 baths, and 3,704 square feet.
