30. Workaholics House — Van Nuys, California
Here’s a good option for an inexpensive vacation rental: Rent out the house featured in TV comedy Workaholics for $95 night on VRBO. The house isn’t actually in Rancho Cucamonga (aka “Hollywood East”) but in Van Nuys, California. Van Nuys isn’t exactly a popular destination but still within driving distance to all the sights in Los Angeles (including, ahem, actual Hollywood).
Two guest houses are available and accommodate two people each. You probably can’t kick it on the roof like Anders, Adam and Blake do in the TV show but there’s plenty else to entertain you. Check out the pool, SmarTV, water sports equipment and or drive on down to Hollywood for tourist activities.
29. “Pulp Fiction” House — Studio City, California
You can rent Quentin Tarantino’s character Jimmie’s house for $5,200 a month according to Zillow. Of course, this being the house where John Travolta and Samuel L. Jackson’s characters clean up murder evidence might not be a strong selling point for some prospective buyers. Oh gee, I wonder why? (Jokes.)
Despite its grizzly movie appearance, the Studio City home is quite a beaut. A brightly lit three bed, two bath home, with wood flooring throughout front and backyards. Its front exterior is charming as well with wood paneling and a red door. Originally it asked $1,395,000 when going on the market in March 2018.
28. “Sex and the City” House — Malibu, California
The three-level beachside house was featured in the 2008 “Sex and the City” movie. Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) moves into it while boyfriend Smith Jerrod pursues acting in Los Angeles. The house was sold in 2003 for $3.2 million but re-sold thirteen years later to a lucky buyer for an incredible $80,000. Zillow estimates the home’s worth at $9,468,636.
Seems like the current owners got themselves quite a deal! Any waterfront in Malibu is highly desirable, especially this one with its silver screen cameos and luxury features. Designed by architect Jay Vanos, the house has many windows and balconies overlooking the ocean view — and any cute surfers next door.
27. “Purple Rain” House — Minneapolis, Minnesota
Prince himself bought the Snelling Avenue home featured in his 1984 cult classic “Purple Rain.” Prince’s character “The Kid” lived in this house while trying to escape his dysfunctional family. The home was listed for $110,000, but Prince paid $117,000 in cash (not the first time the musician paid more than the asking price according to Minnesota Public Radio.)
If Prince’s estate were to rent to you, the home will cost you $1,650 a month according to Zillow’s estimate. It’s a modest property and at the time of sale its listing agent said it needs to be “rehabbed.” Might be worth it considering this is priced “like it’s 1999.”
26. “Silence of the Lambs” House — Perry Township Fay, Pennsylvania
News reports indicated that this home was sitting on the market for a little while before it sold July 2016 for a mere $195,000 — the original asking price was $300,000. Guess the fact that this was serial killer Buffalo Bill’s fictitious home wasn’t a draw for some?
However, it doesn’t look as creepy in real life as it does in “Silence of the Lambs.” The interiors look cozy with patterned wallpaper, lots of windows, and wood flooring. Doesn’t look like there’s a basement where you can “put the lotion on the skin, precious.” But you never know…
25. “Twilight” House — St. Helens, Oregon
Bella Swan’s house in the well-known “Twilight” film franchise has a pending offer! Listed on Zillow for a mere $349,900, you too can live out your vampire and werewolf dreams if you outbid the interested buyer. The mortgage is pretty affordable too, clocking in at only $1,445 a month.
It doesn’t look dark and gloomy like in “Twilight.” Photos online show a brightly lit home with a quaint kitchen, hardwood flooring, and two stories. It’s big enough for a family too! Built in 1935, the single family home has 10 rooms in total — four are bedrooms and one and a half are baths.
24. “The Royal Tenenbaums” House — New York, New York
Located in the Washington Heights neighborhood in New York City, director Wes Anderson picked this home for filming because of its “storybook quality” says Complex Magazine. It DOES look like a storybook house with its multiple levels, ornate windows, brick exterior, and even a spiral tower. It even looks unique just like this movie family.
The home hasn’t been on the market for quite some time according to Zillow. It was last sold April 1999 for $460,000 but Zillow estimates its worth to be over $4 million. If the owners were down to rent it to you, it might be around $6,500. Living like a Tenenbaum comes with a price!
23. Game of Thrones Castle — Markethill, Northern Ireland
GOT fans will recognize this one right away! Gosford Castle is the 19th century country house that was used on season three of Game of Thrones. Maison Real Estate is listing part of the property for £500,000 (about $663,570), which is actually cheaper than buying a property in London (average asking price is £600,926). Not too bad for a castle!
Inside you will find 15+ bedrooms, 10 baths, and 10 reception rooms. No heating, however — just like they did it back in the 19th century. Before its Game of Thrones days, the castle was used by soldiers in World War II for accommodations and a prisoner of war camp.
22. “Groundhog Day” House — Woodstock, Illinois
The boarding house Bill Murray’s character woke up at every morning (over and over again) is now a charming bed and breakfast called Cherry Tree Inn Bed & Breakfast. Its new owners purchased the home for $695,000 in 2017 after three years on the market. We think the name is just as charming as the house looks!
The new owners of the old Victorian told the Northwest Herald that many movie fans call asking to book a room — especially during Groundhog Day weekend. It got so popular that weekend that owners George and Lori Miarecki decided to do a raffle for three of the rooms next year.
21. “While You Were Sleeping” House — La Grange, Illinois
Sandra Bullock’s character, Lucy, is charmed by the Callahan family after saving Peter in this classic rom-com. Their house is equally as charming! It can’t be yours though, unfortunately, as it was sold for $851,000 in 2018 according to Coldwell Banker’s site. We’re disappointed too! It’s always nice to dream…
The gorgeous 1898 home was designed by John Tilton and is located in La Grange’s historic district. Charming features include its wraparound porch, four spacious bedrooms, and wood flooring throughout. The selling agent told Country Living the home has only had three owners prior and has been well cared for.
20. “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” House — Highland Park, Illinois
Mid-century modern architecture nerds will swoon over this piece of property. The two-building home sold in May 2014 (five years after it came on the market) for $1.06 million according to Crain’s Chicago Business. That’s less than the original asking price — $2.3 million. Sounds like the buyers haggled the price down from $1.2 million at the time of sale.
The Ben Rose Home garnered worldwide attention when featured in the 1986 John Hughes classic film. It was designed by James Speyer and his student David Haid. Both buildings are boxy glass and steel cubes. One is the main house and the other is a garage where the father of Ferris’ friend Cameron kept the 1961 Ferrari the teens take for a joy ride.
19. “Sixteen Candles” House — Evanston, Illinois
Speaking of John Hughes films, you just missed out on your chance to buy this piece of 80’s film history! Located in Evanston, Illinois, the multi-level brick home was sold July 2018 for $1,135,000 according to Zillow. It was last sold in 2006 for more — $1,250,000.
It has luxury features like six bedrooms and baths, an outdoor kitchen with a fireplace and TV, and 3,250 square feet of space. If its new owners are up to becoming landlords, Zillow estimates you can rent this beauty for over 6K a month. Who wouldn’t want to live out their John Hughes film fantasies?
18. “Father of the Bride” House — Alhambra, California
A two-story vision in white, this Alhambra, California estate was sold for $1,998,000 in August 2016. Last time it was sold in 2011, the owners purchased it for a bit less at $1,275,000. Zillow estimates its mortgage to cost you $8,142 a month. I wonder if that price include’s Franck’s event planning services?
It is a 1925 build with 5 beds and 4 baths, 11 rooms in total. At 4,397 square-feet, the Traditional Colonial is spacious enough for a family (no matter how quirky!). We hope its new owners recreate Kimberly Williams and Steve Martin father-daughter moments on the backyard basketball court. Real tear-jerkers!
17. “10 Things I Hate About You” House — Tacoma, Washington
The home of Kat and sister Bianca Stratford (Julia Stiles and Larisa Oleynik) in the modern adaptation of Taming of the Shrew sold May 2018 for $1,539,719. That’s just a bit under the original asking price of $1.6 million. The film starring Stiles and Heath Ledger (RIP) was set in Seattle but this house is located a city away.
The pretty five bedroom Victorian dreamer in Tacoma was built in 1907 and rests on a 10,201 square-foot lot overlooking Puget Sound. Selling agent Jeff Jensen said on Zillow that it hadn’t been on the market in 30 years. Sounds like the sellers held it dear to their hearts!
16. “Home Alone” House — Winnetka, Illinois
It was every 90s kid’s dream to pull hijinks on burglars like Kevin McAllister (Macaulay Culkin) did in this sprawling house. It’s not currently for sale but was bought for $1,585,000 in 2012. If it goes up for rent you might pay $8,673 according to Zillow’s estimate.
App.com says it has had many renovations since the family classic filmed but it’s still recognizable from its red brick exteriors. The most recent real estate photos show it with more modern rooms and much less 90s looking wallpaper. We can only hope some kid is having fun sledding down its staircase.
15. “Sleepless in Seattle” Houseboat — Seattle, Washington
The real houseboat Tom Hanks’ character lives on in the 1993 rom-com is in a gated community in the Lake Union area of Seattle. Curbed reported the home was last sold in 2014 for more than $2 million. Its original owners took it off the market in 2008, but a seller came in with an offer they couldn’t refuse.
The home looks mostly the same as it did in “Sleepless in Seattle” according to recent photographs. A gate blocks most of the views but you can see the exterior pretty well by boat. For any “Sleepless” superfans, you could potentially rent it for around $4,500 according to Zillow.
14. Modern Family House — Los Angeles, California
A new family has moved into the Dunphys’ fictional home in the comedic TV series. Its asking price was $2.35 million but sold in 2014 for a bit less — $2,150,000. Listing agent Mitch Hagerman told Zillow Porchlight the property has a lot of potential since ABC forked over a good amount of money to film there.
This traditional two-story home was built in 2006, a bit of a newer build compared to most of the iconic homes on the list. Perfect for a family — even one as kooky as the Dunphys — its spacious with four bedrooms, remodeled features, crown molding, wood floors, and upgraded appliances.
13. “Saturday Night Fever” House – Brooklyn, New York
If you want to own Tony Manero’s home in “Saturday Night Fever,” here’s your chance! The Bay Ridge property is currently on the market for $2,299,000. This is substantially more than what it was bought for in 2005 ($975,000). You’ll just need about $9,471 per month to pay off the mortgage. No John Travolta-like dance skills required!
The multi-level Dutch Colonial is built on a 3,800 square-foot lot with totally extra features like a heated (dare we say feverish) driveway, stained-glass decorations in the foyer and multiple walk-in closets. The best part is the built-in sound system in the master bedroom — perfect for blasting the Bee Gees.
12. The Brady Bunch House — North Hollywood, California
Not sure how the Brady Bunch would have actually fit in this home — it’s only three bedrooms and three baths. The iconic home was sold August 2018 for $3.5 million, that’s $1,412 per square-foot of 1970s inspired goodness. It was listed for sale briefly in 2008 for $2 million according to Zillow, only relisting in July 2018.
The Dilling Street residence is apparently the 2nd most photographed home in the U.S. (a little place called the White House takes the top position) according to Zillow. Its interiors, featuring wood paneling, carpet flooring, and high ceilings, transport you back to the 1970s magic of The Brady Bunch.
11. Full House House — San Francisco, California
The Full House house showed the world the beauty of the Victorians that grace the San Francisco skyline. However, these homes are much less within reach compared to when the show first aired in 1987. The Tanner family’s fictional home on Broderick Street was sold in 2016 for $4 million. That’s a lot more than what it was sold for in 2006 — $1.85 million in 2006 according to Market Watch.
The 1883 build’s interiors don’t look like the Tanner’s living room, kitchen and bedrooms featured on the show. Those were actually a sound stage in a Southern California TV studio. Despite missing the TV magic, its rooms are quite immaculate. It has three luxurious bedrooms, three and half baths and a small but gorgeous garden.
10. “Mrs. Doubtfire” — San Francisco, California
This San Francisco Victorian house is best known for its role in the late Robin Williams 1993 classic about a divorced dad who masquerades as a British nanny to spend time with his kids. Located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, the home was last sold in 2016 for $4,150,000. Zillow estimates the mortgage racking up to $16,927 a month.
The interior shots of the home were actually filmed inside a Bay Area warehouse. The real Victorian’s interiors are a combo of its 1893 heritage and modern luxury, according to the Zillow listing description. Despite its changes, it’s still a special place for fans. When Williams died, fans placed flowers outside the home to commemorate the actor according to NY Daily News.
9. The O.C. House — Malibu, California
This one isn’t in actually in Orange County, like where the show takes place, but rather in the beach city of Malibu — a little north of Los Angeles. Regards, you can live like Mischa Barton’s character Marissa Cooper if you have $6,295,000 laying around — this property is for sale, baby!
The beachside home was built a year before the show aired in 2003. It’s well lit with its multiple windows, a pool that faces the ocean and plenty of room to relax and entertain guests. For those craving a waterfront property, this one is perfect! It’s just minutes from the beach with stunning ocean views from almost every window.
8. “The Goonies” House — Astoria, Oregon
Located in the seaside town of Astoria, Oregon, the house made famous by the 1985 adventure comedy “The Goonies” is estimated to be worth $6,357,721 according to Zillow. If the new owners wanted to rent out their 1875, two-story, single family home, it would cost you about $1,950 a month.
It doesn’t seem like they’d want to rent anytime soon — the reviews on Tripadvisor show them to be not very receptive of visitors. Signs are posted everywhere warning overzealous “The Goonies” fans trespassing that the police will be called on them. *Sigh.* Some things just aren’t like the movies.
7. Keeping Up with the Kardashians House — Studio City, California
Kim Kardashian and her famous family are not the only ones that have filmed in this contemporary Mediterranean estate in the San Fernando Valley. The Iredell Estate (currently listed for sale for $6,495,000) was also the film location for American Horror Story, True Blood, Chelsea Lately, a Victoria’s Secret commercial, and more.
If you have a down payment ready, you can have this estate at a mortgage payment of $26,470 per month. Despite its rich movie history, the home is private enough being closed off behind a gate. Inside you’ll find an exquisitely designed master suite, private patios, walk-in closets, a saltwater pool, and a jacuzzi!
6. 13 Reasons Why House — San Rafael, California
Featured in the controversial TV show, 13 Reasons Why, the six bed and eight bath property sold in 2017 for a whopping $7,300,000. This was the house of Bryce, the ringleader of the guys on the Selena Gomez-produced show. You might recognize the estate from the party scenes on the show.
It seems to be worth the price tag judging by its impressive pictures on Zillow. The epitome of luxury, the 1907 build is three stories with 21 rooms in total, sprawling lawns, a saltwater pool, hot tub, and more all on 1.5 acres of land. Fit for a rich boy like Bryce and his fam!
5. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” Townhouse — New York, New York
Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly character lived at this multi-story townhouse in the 1961 film. Zillow says it was sold in July 2015 for a whopping $7.4 million. That’s $1,425,000 MORE than its 2012 selling price. It’s not surprising, it’s a gorgeous Brownstone at 3,600 square-feet with 4 beds and 5 baths.
You’d have to live on the snooty Upper East Side, but it’s a small price to pay to live out all of your “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” fantasies like singing “Moon River” to your upstairs neighbor, hosting parties with New York City socialites, hanging out with Cat, and sleeping in till noon. Ah, if only!
4. Downton Abbey Manor — Surrey, England
Many regal people have lived here — both real and imaginary. Lady Violet Crawley (Dame Maggie Smith) called the historic Byfleet Manor home in Downton Abbey. So did Cinderella, the original rags-to-riches protagonist, in “Into the Woods.” The selling agent says the home was previously owned by the royal family for over 300 years.
Originally listed at $6,160,000, Byfleet Manor sold September 2015 for over $7.8 million. Fit for royalty, literally, the decadent home is 6,000 square-feet composed of eight bedrooms and four reception rooms. It comes on a massive parcel (19 acres!) with four additional lots in South East England.
3. “The Holiday” House — San Marino, California
While critics were not too keen on this 2006 romantic comedy starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet (47 percent on Rotten Tomatoes…), this house is hard not to like! Currently on the market at $11,800,000 according to Realtor, it’s a gorgeous Spanish style two-story designed by architect Wallace Neff as his personal home.
Iris, Kate Winslet’s character in “The Holiday,” travels to this dream destination to escape from all the drama in her life. You could escape to it forever if you can afford the monthly fees. Realtor calculated it’ll cost you about $64,759 a month. No one said dreams are cheap!
2. “Scarface” Mansion — Montecito, California
Known as El Fureidis, the mansion first came onto the market May 2014 for $35 million. Owner Sergey Grishin, a Russian financier, settled on $12.6 million in 2015 — a fraction of the original asking price. Seems like the fact that it was Tony Montana’s mansion in the film starring Al Pacino wasn’t a strong selling point…
The mortgage for the Santa Barbara County estate is estimated at $50,029 a month. Makes sense, this mansion is luxurious! El Fureidis has elaborately painted and arched ceilings, magnificent pools, and both ocean and mountain views. It’s massive too — 9,816 square-foot property set on 10.39 acres of land.
1. “Something’s Gotta Give” House — Southampton, New York
James Tisch, CEO of Loews Corporation, bought this home featured in the 2003 Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson film for $41 million in 2014. If Mr. Tisch ever wanted to rent it to you, Zillow estimates you’ll need to put aside $52,057 a month in order to do it.
The Meadow Lane home is a massive property located in the ultra-wealthy vacation locale of the Hamptons. There are 11 rooms and 8,000 square-feet sitting on two-acres of oceanfront property. You could fit all of your friends in it comfortably, or have pleeeeenty of room all to yourself to spread out.
