Bill Murray’s Hollywood mansion in the horror-comedy movie Zombieland is on the market for $19.9 million.
It’s not really Bill Murray’s house, of course, and it’s not really in Hollywood.
It sits on over 2 acres in Atlanta, Georgia, and is the definition of over-the-top opulence. Take a look!
“Zombieland” Mansion For Sale
In the movie, zombies have taken over, and Jesse Eisenberg joins forces with a group of quirky characters played by Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone, and Abigail Breslin, to fight for survival.
In Hollywood, they use a map of stars’ homes to find Bill Murray’s residence and decide to crash there.

Wow! This is a HUGE house! I like many things about it, but I don’t think I could live in a space like this. I don’t think I’d feel at home, feel it belongs to me. I like houses that feel like homes and not “museums”. It’s too big, even for a family of 5! 🙂
Great post and I love seeing movie houses, Julia.

This is a Castle!!! It’s BIG!! I did not see the movie… I wanna see it 🙂
Kisses and happy week!
Too cold and way too big!
Well, it’s big enough for any family reunion!!
I don’t care for the kitchen ceililng or rug, but the rest I do like. Like you, it’s all about the outside, it’s beautiful.
For my tastes, and I can be pretty mansion loving, it’s too big. I wonder how often anyone really lives there?
My opinion about big poopa, I mean poppa? Better left to the imagination!
Hi Julia, awesome that you featured ‘Big Poppa’s’ house, that place is huge! I actually googled searched him a few years back trying to figure out who Kim was referring to on the Atlanta Housewives (I am obsessed with all the Housewives on Bravo, yes I know it is sad) and ended up finding an episode of MTV Cribs where Lee Najar’s kids walk MTV through the house, Lee is there with his kids and his real wife (also named Kim, so weird!).
There is a full salon, tanning bed, massage room, recording studio and tons more shown.

Wow, I like the home theater and that balcony but everything else is way over the top for me. I did think Jesse Eisenberg was casted perfectly for The Social Network, though, but that’s kind of off topic :p
I saw this house on MTV cribs.
Tanja @ Postmodern Hostess says
Oh my gosh, it is like a baroque convention exploded all over that house! LOL
Love the grand staircase, but the rest is a bit much. 🙂
Can’t imagine making a cup of tea in that kitchen – too baronial.
I’d run for Meg Ryan’s house on Martha’s Vineyard – it was in Elle Decor, I seem to recall, and was divine.
I would feel pretty darn silly making banana bread in that kitchen!

The angle of those pics make the rooms look cavernous.
Sorry, but EWWWWWW! I don’t like a single thing about this house. The interiors are just so tacky. If I had to pick one word to describe the place, I’d probably say it was offensive. And oddly, it didn’t look nearly this bad to me in the movie.
This is so over the top I feel like I’m Harlen and Grace just did my my NYC apt. But for the money I’m still at the Doheny Estate.
As for a Zombie hide out, would a silent film producer director be close enough, because there is a house that if you barricaded the bridge the zombies would have to claw their way up a sandstone cliff to get you. the house is called the Palazzo has a 13 car garage with a Picasso-esque nude mural on the back wall. (The Blue Period.)
Wow, this house is way too big and luxurious for my taste. I like some things about it, but I just couldn’t live here. The house wouldn’t feel like home.
lesley @ The Design File says
I’m actually overwhelmed by this place. It’s huge! I can’t imagine decorating it becasue of both the size and the style!
Kelly D says
One of my favorite movies! I thought the house was ginormous and was totally surprised when I learned it was filmed within an hours drive from me. I can’t imagine living in something so big, I would get lost and I can imagine there would be some rooms I’d not visit in years. I can’t imagine ever needing to go on vacation in a house like that, you could just change rooms for a while. 🙂
Amanda @ Serenity Now says
I have a secret. I loved Zombieland. I was hesitant to watch it b/c I’m not a fan of gore or horror films, but my husband kept telling me it was funny. He was right! I think Columbus was hilarious with his list of rules (“Double Tap!”), and I LOVED the scene where they reenacted the scenes from Ghost Busters. 🙂
The house is pretty over the top, but well played as a choice for a movie star home.
I only watched it because I wanted to see the kitchen readers were asking about and was surprised by how funny it was. I’m not usually a fan of zombie movies either! 🙂
This house, and the ceilings especially, make me claustrophobic. Not a fan…
I find most of this house and it’s interiors just tacky, tacky, tacky. But, whatever–different strokes for different folks.
Creepy — really a Zombie House! Couldn’t live there. Weird ceilings. Gross reptilian textures on the ceiling. Cave-like.
Cynthia Lynn says
HATED IT……..It is poorly designed and overly wrought. Personally, the person that buys this house is insecure and buying it for the showoff factor. Not an indiviual that I would want to count as a friend. The only value in this home is that it shows the craftsmanship of the various trades. I bet they were laughing all the way to the bank.
New Haven Funeral Homes says
I absolutely loved the movie and it wasn’t lost on me just how gorgeous that mansion was. Now if only I had 19 million just laying around…
Bonnie Cooper says
This is a fabulous house. My husband works in the real estate market of Atlanta and we went inside this house!!!! Words can not describe this house. But this house was on MTV Teen Cribs!!! Apparently some teen stars name Jamen and Kaitlin along with their parents live here. So, I don’t think this house belongs to Big Poppa. Not sure men can be very sneaky.
That’s fun that you got to see it in person! Another reader mentioned that the kids on MTV Teen Cribs are Big Poppa’s, but I don’t know for sure. -Julia

We don’t live too terribly far from the house. A friend of mine, who rides by it everyday to work, said that the new Three Stooges movie is currently being filmed there.
If you look close, when they are outside dumping Bill Murray’s body you can see it snowing. The scene was filmed on March 1st or 2nd, which ever day we had a snow storm. Just funny how it was supposed to be Hollywood and it was snowing. I have been out there before when they were having the wildfires and the ash made it look like it was snowing.
Can i be in the next Movie as a stand by? That Castle is Beautiful!!!!
This is, in my opinion, an extremely ugly house. I do not like all the ornateness throughout.
The Texas Peach says
The outdoor space is definitely fantastic, but I don’t really care for the rest of the house.
I don’t really like homes this formal anyway, but this one took it to the point of being gaudy. I do like the countertops and cabinets in the kitchen, but they went way overboard with the space. To each their own though, I guess.
Is this the same house used in Toby Keith’s video “Who’s your Daddy?” Maybe not but that’s a fabulous house too… Know anything about it?
It does look similar, but it’s not the same one. Fun video, though! 🙂
Content Writer says
I love everything about it except the ceilings – the ceilings are just too much, would make me feel like the sky was falling.
They could have used that house as the castle for The Princess Diaries.
I am a back ground extra living here in Atlanta, I recently was in this house shooting the 3 Stooges Movie. I spent 5 days there and was all over the first floor main house as well as the pool area and what they called the “basketball court” building. The house is very big as you can tell by the pics but it is also very dark (in a medievil way) and depressing. I don’t know who designed this place but it seems as though “Jethro and Ellie Mae Clampett” got hold of “Jed’s” money and built this!!!
My issue is that the kitchen, office and dining room are vintage-based yet the bathroom and bedroom are modern. No matter how large a home, people should pick and stick to one century through out!
