Iconic “Brady Brunch” House for Sale, but May Be Demolished

The iconic home for the hit TV show, ‘Brady Brunch’ has gone on the market for $1.85 million. This is the first time in 45 years that the residence has gone on the market; the previous owners had bought the house in 1973. According to one listing service, they called the home “the second-most photographed home in the United States,” only trailing behind the White House. Kelsey McCallister Wittmer, one of the grandchildren of the home, has said, “They had no idea their house was going to become the second most photographed home in all of America next to the white house and as the years went on, ‘The Brady Bunch’ just kept getting more and more popular and the house appeared on more and more star maps.”

The former ‘Brady Bunch’ home is located at 11222 Dilling Street in Studio City, CA. The home consists of two bedrooms, three bathrooms, and two master suites. The 2,477 square foot home resting on a third of an acre was mainly used in the exterior shots of the Brady Bunch series. Most of the interior shots were done at a soundstage.

“I have several buyers already interested,” said Jodie Levitus Francisco, a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway, “They’re developers for the lot size. They might tear down, but the listing agent said the family was hoping to get someone to preserve the house, and at $1.85, I don’t know if a developer would pay that much.”

In fact, Miley Cyrus has come forward recently to show her interest in purchasing the home. Lance Bass has also expressed his interest in the home, though the two don’t plan on purchasing together.

Florence Henderson, who played the role of Carol in the sitcom ‘Brady Bunch’, passed away in 2016 of heart failure and it raised an uproar in the show’s fans. Many fans drove from all over to come to the house and pay tribute to Florence Henderson, also known as the Brady mom “Carol.”  Grand-daughter, Kelsey McCallister, says, “There was a shrine of flowers, it was poured all over my grandma’s house.”

The beloved ‘Brady Bunch’ home will always be tied to the sitcom. Violet and George McCallister purchased the home in 1973 for $61,000 and had been used for the ‘Brady Bunch’ show from 1969-1974. The home is now selling for $1.85 million and while there is a chance a developer can purchase and tear it down, it is very unlikely.
