Phil and Claire Dunphy’s house on the popular sitcom Modern Family is for sale in L.A.
It comes with 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, and nearly 2,700 square feet, as well as a very recognizable exterior.
The homeowner gets paid each time the show shoots scenes on the property, but the interiors were recreated on a separate soundstage.
A “Modern Family” House For Sale
The current owner told the Wall Street Journal that he gets lots of visits from fans who want to see the house in person: “I’ve met people from around the world.”
Listing agent Mitch Hagerman of Coldwell Banker Previews International added that it would be up to the new owner whether or not to allow the show to continue filming here. Could be interesting if they have to find somewhere else to shoot.
Would Claire and Phil have to move? (It happened to Mary Tyler Moore on her show when the homeowners got tired of the lookiloos!)
This is what the real living room looks like (below):
Here’s the window wall in the living room taken from the episode “Undeck the Halls:”
Production designer Richard Berg described the Dunphy home as
“Pottery Barn meets Restoration Hardware.”
Series creator Steve Levitan said, “The kitchen is now truly the center of the house. We couldn’t do a show called ‘Modern Family’ if we didn’t see the kitchen as part of the dining and family room in one flowing space.”
The kitchen in the listing shows wood cabinets and reddish granite countertops (below):
Even though the decorating is different, the layout is essentially the same,
with the family room open to the kitchen.
The listing says:
“Sophistication, charm and attention to detail best describe this classic two-story, traditional home in a beautiful neighborhood with mature trees in coveted Cheviot Hills. You’ll appreciate the craftsmanship in the crown molding and rich mahogany hardwood floors throughout.”
I also featured the other sets and houses on the show if you want to see where the other families live.
Most of these photos are screenshots I took while watching the show. You can catch “Modern Family” Wednesday nights on ABC.
Asking price for the Dunphy house is $2.35 million.
