The World-Famous ‘Brady Bunch’ House in L.A.’s Studio City Now for Sale
One of showbiz’s most recognizable homes, a late 1950s, split-level ranch known around the globe as the home of the Brady family from the iconic early 1970s sitcom “The Brady Bunch,” has come for sale for the first time in 45 years at $1.885 million. Built on in a quiet, leafy street adjacent to the coveted Colfax Meadows neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley’s increasingly sought after and expensive Studio City community on an irregularly shaped .29-acre parcel that borders the concrete-paved Los Angeles River, the almost 2,500-square-foot residence is configured with just two ample bedroom suites, one upstairs and one down, and a total of three bathrooms.

Only the exterior of the house was used to represent the Brady home; a fake window was added to the front façade for filming to make the house appear as a two-story home — it was long ago removed — and interior shots were filmed in studio.
