Any of the houses in the Wisteria Lane neighborhood
featured on Desperate Housewives.

Oh, I like this new thread!!

I like the cathedral ceiling of the Brady Bunch living room and the kitchen/tv room in the same.

Not to live in, but I always loved Grace's office in Will & Grace.

The "Christmas In Connecticut" house. I'd change the furnishings, but I love everything else about it. The outside, the architecture, the grounds... I even love the minimal, old fashioned kitchen.

Oh, if we are shifting to movies, the house where the bad guys are in at the end North by Northwest you know, behind Mt Rushmore) and the swapped house in England that Cameron Diaz lives in in my Christmas guilty pleasure movie The Holiday.

TV: Don Draper's apartment in the final couple of seasons of Mad Men
Movies: Brian Keith's California house in the original Parent Trap

Cam and Mitchell's house in Modern Family, but fuck that airbnb. I want the whole thing.

Mar 2, 2017, 11:26pm

I like Cam and Mitchell's house too, but man, Jay and Gloria's is so hideous. Mary Richards's original apartment in The Mary Tyler Moore Show (also Mr. Grant's house when Rhoda redecorated it).

Oh, now, movies! Off the top of my head: Lee and Frederick's apartment in Hannah and Her Sisters. The old mill after Ron has renovated it in All That Heaven Allows. The Provincetown house in Reds. Ingrid Bergman's apartment in Indiscreet. All versions of Mame's Beekman Place house.

I am weirdly obsessed with that red and black landscape painting in Mitch and Cam's living room, the one to the left of the front door. Whenever there's a scene set in there, I just stare at it.

I like Jay and Gloria's house but I hate all the stuff in it.

The Dunphy's house is the worst, and I have a WHOLE BIG THING about how there's no way that Claire had anything to do with it -- no way would she put plates on the wall in that eat-in kitchen area. PLATES ON THE WALL! But maybe Phil did that....he does seem like the type. With that dumb pomegranate painting, or whatever that thing is.

This site is a fun time-waster regarding the MF houses.

I wrote a slide show about movie houses back in the olden days when I was at Salon. The slide show feature doesn't work anymore, so you can't make the pics much biggger, but ta-da. It was triggered by the Mildred Pierce miniseries -- they should have just issued a Mildred Pierce catalog; I wanted everything in it.

Cam and Mitchell have a Hatch Show print in their kitchen.

Mar 3, 2017, 12:03pm

Give me Diane Keaton's house in Something's Gotta Give.

Mar 3, 2017, 9:54pm

Oh, yes, Julie's right! That's exactly the house I was thinking of.

Mar 4, 2017, 10:09am

Ward and June Cleaver's house...

Mar 4, 2017, 11:14am

Andy Taylor's house on the Andy Griffith show, with that big rough stone wall with the fireplace (sorry, don't get out much when it comes to TV).

Mar 4, 2017, 1:07pm

The Addams family mansion is ME.

Mar 4, 2017, 1:29pm

>15 LolaWalser: Ha! (and interesting)

The house I most loved in film is the one in The Single Man -- I would want the woods that surround it as well.

And I quite like the house in The Catch, the one that Mireille Enos lives in.

I have a very basic problem with television houses. I have an affinity for the country cottages and the gardens of your average BBC English mystery series, but the library of Downton Abbey. I don't want a house so much as a TARDIS.

Mar 4, 2017, 4:35pm

I forgot a movie house: the Frank Lloyd Wright beach house with the blue roof in A Summer Place. Dorothy McGuire even takes Sandra Dee on a tour of it. It's the only part of the movie (which I'm watching right now) that isn't dreadful.

Mar 5, 2017, 6:47pm

Similarly, Monty Bergeron's beach house in the Crawford Mildred Pierce. It looks like a tudor cottage on the outside but it's all fancy modern inside.

Mar 7, 2017, 11:36am

Cliff Robertson's bachelor pad in Sunday in New York because of the spiral staircase leading up to a library loft.

>13 Crypto-Willobie: Yes, the house they moved into on season 3 of Leave It to Beaver.

Mar 7, 2017, 5:19pm

>21 Molly3028: Yeah, the second house. Ward has a whole wall of books.

Editado: Mayo 9, 2018, 6:00pm

I would also go for the beach house in Mildred Pierce. Lauren Bacall's apartment in Young Man With a Horn.

Mar 14, 2017, 9:23pm

ooo with that white brick fireplace, yes.

Mar 14, 2017, 9:27pm

I just tried Googling it and no luck.

My sister occupied the "Hangin' With Mr. Cooper" house because it was her house. The producers (or whoever) knocked on her door in South Pasadena and said they wanted to shoot the exteriors there. Turning on the show was always good for a little shot of cognitive dissonance.

Our house was scouted by the Law & Order people, maybe ten years ago. I wasn't home at the time, but J says they just knocked on the door cold, handed him business cards, and took a bunch of photos of the inside and outside. They never shot here, which is just as well—I can't imagine what a pain in the ass that would have been (not really a Law & Order fan, obviously). But when J called the number on the card to make sure they were for real, the tone to leave a message was that two-chord motif from the opening credits, which I thought was pretty funny.

It was only a day of my sister's time (for which she was paid $1500).

I watched a really truly terrible movie from last year this afternoon, A Kind of Murder. It's based on a Highsmith novel, The Blunderer -- it's completely forgettable plotwise, but it has a doozy of a mid-century ranch house in it (the main character is an architect), as well as a very alluring 60s "Greenwich Village" club that looks like a cross between a wine cellar and the catacombs of Paris. I'll take them both.

It was also made in the 6s as Le Meurtrier, but I'll have to hunt for that and see if it's any better.
