The place where Carol Brady brought up three very lovely girls with a man named Brady who was living with three boys of his own.
We speak, of course, of the Brady Bunch House. It’s currently for sale on Zillow. Not just some flimsy façade on a studio backlot, the 3-bed/3-bathroom house used for exterior shots on the 5-year series is located in L.A.’s Studio City. It currently has an asking price of $1.885 million.
That sounds high for three bedrooms. Even for an oversaturated modern metropolis.
If you think that may be countered by warm, fuzzy memories of Peter, Tiger and the gang as you pull up to the driveway and see the house, you may also be slightly disappointed. Changes were made for the show and have been made since, rendering it a little unrecognizable on a first glance. And you wouldn't have any of the stuff inside.
