Hollywood’s most iconic houses and what they are worth!
When thinking about some of Hollywood’s most classic movies, it is hard to not be reminded of the beautiful homes captured in them! Movie writers and directors put a lot of thought into choosing locations to film at, which is great because the hard work usually pays off!
In 1990, the movie Home Alone was released and instantly became a classic due to Kevin McCalisters pranks, the holiday season, and that wonderful house! When the crew was searching for the perfect home for the movie’s plot, they had to keep all the pranks and stunts in mind.
The crew ended up at a 4,250 square foot home in Winnetka, Illinois. The house in this movie is so important because the premise is entirely about a young boy’s adventures throughout his own “humble abode.” The home has about three stories, five bedrooms, and sold for 1.6 million in 2012. Did you know that the movie Home Alone sold over 17 million dollars in its opening weekend? For more than twenty-five years, Home Alone held the Guinness World Record for “highest-grossing film of 1990”.
About sixteen years ago, The Notebook, a movie rendition of the Nicholas Sparks book was released. This classic film is a constant reminder of how beautiful love can be and more importantly, that crying is okay! We all remember how much “rehab” effort Noah put into the plantation home, remember how he even added the blue shutters?
This beautiful five bedroom, four and a half bathroom home, can be rented for about a thousand dollars a night, and is worth about $582,000. Martina Point Plantation is also located in South Carolina, right by the water! Noah also reminds us eager homeowners that with a little heart, we can flip a house for about a $100,000 profit! A little fun fact about this house is that the directors decided to make it look like it needed a renovation, instead of finding a fixer-upper themselves!
Cheaper by the Dozen
Cheaper by the Dozen is an awesome family movie that is about the Bakers, a football coaching dad, his wife, and twelve kids! There are a lot of important things to consider when having a family that large, but most importantly what house will fit us all? That is why the Baker’s needed to have at least an eleven bedroom house, equipped with ten bathrooms (so no one fights over the shower), and in a great neighborhood!
That is why the directors picked a mansion located in Los Angeles! This 12,565 square foot home has an estimated value of $7,281,600 dollars and has one of the most gorgeous pools. When thinking of a family that big, the more space the better!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Going back in time to 1961, the wonderful movie called Breakfast at Tiffany’s came out and made all watchers desire a luxurious life in New York City. The home was built in 1910 and with a handful of renovations, the outdoor exterior still remains the same from the classic film.
This townhome located on the affluent side of the Upper East side is valued at around seven million dollars and houses about 3,800 square feet. Located between Lexington Avenue and Third Avenue, this 4 bedroom-5 bathroom beauty brings out the lavish side in all of us!
