Recognize these famous movie houses? They’re four of my favorites!
I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on a blog redesign we’re launching soon.
Right now I’m editing and updating hundreds of old posts I’ve written over the past 7 1/2 years about Movie Houses, and I thought you’d like to see new photos I found of how some of them look today.
Thank you for taking the time to give us updates of these houses. It was fun to see what they look like today and if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the daddy daycare house. It’s oh so charming and I would love to live in a place like that.
Don’t you just love having the I am not a stalker website to go to when you want to find a house location? I sure do.
I can’t wait to see what movie house updates you share next. Have a nice week!
Not a movie house, but one readers might like:
Curbed NY recently featured this Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY house: https://ny.curbed.com/archives/2015/07/07/cute_turreted_brooklyn_townhouse_wants_just_875000.php#more
Looking at it, I was instantly struck by how similar it is to a Sears Maytown:
There is one extra window and it is missing the front bow-out (which may have been lost to renovations), so it is not an exact match; but, it is VERY close. Even the dining room features the bow-out. The 2nd floor, with the exception of an added bath, is a close match.
Several other companies sold kit homes and they often cribbed plans from one another, so it might have been another company’s take on the Maytown.
Interesting! They do look alike. Thanks, Brandy.

Thanks for all your work on this, Julia. I enjoyed seeing what these movie houses look like now. My fave is the hand that rocks the cradle house. It’s still gorgeous today, as are they all.

Your blog is one of my favorite ways to spend Saturday mornings!
I would love to see some of the Mad Men homes on your site, some really great examples of mid century modern style as well as old school 50s and 60s décor.
