This is your chance to own the beach house where Emily Thorne (aka Amanda Clarke) lived on the soapy nighttime drama “Revenge.”
It’s not really in the Hamptons like it was on TV, though — the real deal is in Southport, North Carolina. And they made a few other changes to the house for television.
Take a look!
The Beach House from “Revenge”
Here’s how it looked in the opening credits of the show:
The Real House in North Carolina (below):
The listing says:
It is the water that greets you when entering the statement double doors of this custom waterfront home. Featuring an open floor plan with beautiful heart of pine floors and windows that offer spectacular views of the Cape Fear River, Bald Head Island, Oak Island lighthouse out to the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean. Fans of the TV series Revenge will remember this house was featured as Emily’s Beach house.
They created a fake front porch for filming (via a video tour of the set):
The rooms were modeled on the real interiors but recreated on a soundstage:
The real entry and staircase looks like this (below):

Here’s a wide shot of the set taken from a video tour:
The beach house has 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, and 3,600 square feet.
In the pilot we see the real estate agent giving Emily the tour:
The listing says, “Spacious foyer area leads to the gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, Viking gas appliances, vent hood, a grand island and a walk-in butler’s pantry — all of this makes this kitchen and dining area perfect for entertaining.”
Emily’s version of the kitchen had butcher block countertops and beadboard:
When it was on the market in 2012 the kitchen island was painted red:

The listing says:
“Gracious living area with coffered ceilings, built-ins and fireplace exits to a charming Southern wrap-around porch that includes spacious screen porch to enjoy the wonderful SW breezes and gorgeous sunsets that Southport is known for. “

In this aerial shot of the real house you can see the pool behind the property, as well as a community center
and pool next door where the Grayson property is on the show:
Speaking of Grayson Manor…
Sorry to disillusion you, but the sprawling exterior of Grayson Manor was created via CGI
and doesn’t really sit next to Emily’s beach house:
According to I Am Not a Stalker, the exterior was based on a real house in East Hampton.
I tracked it down on Further Lane:
A reader named Jim tells me: “They just stretched it, moved the pool and added a few extras for TV.” He directed me to this image of what the real exterior looks like (below), and it does match the one I found above.
Victoria’s tower was one of the things they added on:
They created some fake exteriors of the manor on the soundstage for closeups, too:
For the pilot episode, they filmed inside a real house in Wilmington, NC, and the Grayson Manor set was later based on it:
When they were shooting outdoor scenes by the pool, they used a house in Malibu on Winding Way:
Back to Emily’s Beach House — here’s the (fake) porch they recreated on set, surrounded by blue screen:
You can see how it looked on TV in this shot of Emily Van Camp and Josh Bowman beside it:

Emily’s house didn’t have a pool, but the real one does.
The beach house was built in 2003.
It would be pretty cool to live in Emily’s house, wouldn’t it? First thing I’d do is carve the “infinity” symbol into the porch rail like hers!
