Famous Movie and TV House Values in Today's Market
The images of certain homes are seared in our memories. Sure, some of those homes might be a house or apartment where you lived. But we also have deep connections to real estate from TV and movies.
You probably could describe in great detail at least one of the properties from "The Brady Bunch," "Full House" or "Sex and the City." But what would these real-world properties cost nowadays?
Here's how much they'd go for in today's market.
'Home Alone' House
Location: 671 Lincoln Ave., Winnetka, Illinois 60093
The older we get, the more we realize that Kevin McAllister's sprawling house was probably the fanciest home most of us '90s kids would ever get to know well.
The gorgeous brick house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms in its 4,243-square-foot space. It's on a tree-lined street outside of Chicago and looks just as friendly in the snow.
A House Worth Defending
Someone at Zillow had a great time writing the description for the house: "This is the perfect Christmas home on so many degrees. Firstly, it has many large rooms perfect for filling with Christmas decorations and booby traps," it reads. "The front door has a handle that could potentially be used to burn a home-invaders hand."
It goes on to list the many pranks little McAllister set up around the home. You can't tour the home, but it is OK if "Home Alone" superfans drive by and see it in person.
Just don't bother the folks who live there now.

'A Christmas Story' House
Location: 3159 W 11th St., Cleveland, Ohio 44109
For many Americans, "A Christmas Story," is the classic Christmas tale. That’s why TBS plays it on a loop for 24 hours every Christmas.
The 1,792-square-foot home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and was built in 1895.
Superfans of the movie can visit the house and stay overnight if a traditional hotel seems too dull. You can even pick Ralphie's room.
It's Not Italian
It's been renovated to its "A Christmas Story" look and is open year-round.
A museum based on the movie sits across the street from the house, featuring props, costumes and behind-the-scenes photos from the film.
Don't worry. It's not fragile. And it's not Italian.

'Sleepless in Seattle' Houseboat
Location: 2460 Westlake Ave., Seattle, Washington
Who knew houseboats could be so romantic? Someone on the set of "Sleepless in Seattle" sure did.
The charming houseboat Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) calls home is now owned by a tech industry executive who paid more than $2 million.
The previous owners lived in the house since 1993, which was the same year the cult classic from Nora Ephron was released.
Call It a Special Place
The 2,200-square-foot place is in the ever-popular Lake Union neighborhood, according to the Puget Sound Business Journal.
There are four bedrooms, and the Journal reported that it has the largest float footprint of any houseboat in Seattle.

Carrie Bradshaw’s Apartment, ‘Sex and the City’
Location: 64 Perry St., New York, New York 10014
The iconic brownstone was the home to Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) for six seasons and two movies.
The HBO drama and the famous West Village apartment have convinced young women from all over the country to give NYC a shot.
Bradshaw's space included a small but useful kitchen, a giant closet by NYC standards, a living room and bedroom space that wasn't entirely separate, and a bathroom with two entrances.
This Apartment Never Goes Out of Style
The property where they filmed the show sold in 2013 for $13,250,000, according to New York real estate broker James McGrath of Yoreevo. "The market has been soft lately, but the property should be up since then," McGrath says. "The townhouse market across NYC has been weak — very few transactions have been happening — but the West Village is one of the strongest neighborhoods in the city."
Nowadays, the real 64 Perry St. property has three floors and a long list of amenities in its 4,104-square-foot space. The entry hall leads to the parlor floor, which has a large living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room and a butler’s pantry that leads below to the kitchen on the garden floor.
The master bedroom has walk-in closets and an attached study. The house has two more bedroom suites, a fourth bedroom that's a bit smaller, another bathroom and a penthouse with a terrace — a perfect place for Carrie and Big to grow old together.

"I would estimate its value to be about $14,000,000," McGrath says.
Cameron's House, 'Ferris Bueller’s Day Off'
Location: 370 Beech St., Highland Park, Illinois 60035
The stunning mid-century modern home nestled among the trees became famous when John Hughes featured it in his 1986 film "Ferris Bueller’s Day Off."
You Can't Forget Cameron's House
The movie's main character wasn't a fan of the home's architectural beauty.
"If I had to live in that house, I’d probably pray for a disease, too. The place is like a museum," Ferris says in the film, of his friend Cameron’s house. "It’s very beautiful and very cold, and you’re not allowed to touch anything. Can you appreciate what it must’ve been like for Cameron to be in that joint as a baby?"
According to Redfin, the home has 4,300 square feet, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. The house sold in 2014 for over a million — red Ferrari not included.
Cameron's House, Current Estimated Value (Redfin)
Location: 184 N. 6th St., Saint Helens, Oregon 97051
Who knew the house Bella Swan and her dad called home was so affordable? The film featured in the "Twilight" movies is a steal compared to most of the homes featured in films and TV.
The house is from 1935 and less than an hour outside of Portland. According to Realtor.com, it last sold for $363,000.
Forever Begins Here
The white house four bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, and is a little over 2,000 square feet.
From the upper floor, you'll have a view of the nearby Columbia River.

'Father of the Bride' House
Location: 843 South El Molino Ave., Pasadena, California 91106
The 1991 romantic comedy "Father of the Bride" made the idyllic white clapboard house featured in the film one of America's favorite dream homes.
George Banks (Steve Martin) and his wife, Nina, (Diane Keaton) throw their daughter, Annie, (Kimberly Williams) a beautiful wedding reception in their backyard after she comes home from vacation and surprises them with her engagement news.
You'll Love It
Most of the movie features scenes in the iconic house. The green shutters, picket fence and winding front walkway make even the most cynic city dweller consider a life in the 'burbs.
Martin's character describes the house in the movie: "This house is warm in the winter, cool in the summer and looks spectacular with Christmas lights. It’s a great house and I never want to move."
The Madison Heights neighborhood home has eight bedrooms and five bathrooms and is 4,339 square feet.
'Father of the Bride' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
'Steel Magnolias' House
Location: 320 Jefferson St., Natchitoches, Louisiana 71457
"Steel Magnolias" gave people a glimpse into the strong bonds that Southern women build over decades of friendship.
We first met M'Lynn, Shelby, Ouiser, and the rest of the Truvy's Beauty Shop squad in 1989, but thanks to technology, we can rewatch the classic anytime.
True Southern Hospitality
Fans of the film can book a stay at the home, thanks to a bed and breakfast run in the famous house. It is a popular vacation spot, though, so you'll want to book early. It’s known for its Southern hospitality.
The brick home is 5,900-square-feet and has six bedrooms and six bathrooms.
It also has an 8,000-square-foot guest house, a pool and original wood floors.
'Steel Magnolias' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
The 'Full House' House
Location: 1709 Broderick St., San Francisco, California 94115
If you were alive in America in the '90s, you would recognize the "Full House" house.
The San Francisco home isn’t one of the famed painted ladies, though. Those Victorian and Edwardian houses at 710–720 Steiner St., across from Alamo Square Park, are shown in the opening credits.
Stunning Real Estate Everywhere You Look
The 1883 3,728-square-foot home is in another part of the city and has been renovated on the inside. It’s stunning.
The house has four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, two living rooms, a wet bar and a laundry room. Interior details include high ceilings, skylights, custom cabinetry, Viking appliances and beautiful design touches from Richard Landry.
There is also an English garden, additional storage space and garage parking.

'Breaking Bad' House
Location: 3828 Piermont Dr. NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87111
"Breaking Bad" isn't the most heartwarming show, but that doesn't make the main house featured in it any less recognizable and welcoming.
Ready to Build an Empire?
Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com all have pages listing the home of the fictional White family.
But all of the real estate companies failed to record too many details about the real-life house.
We do know it was built in 1972 and has 1,910-square-feet and one bathroom.
'Breaking Bad' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
The 'Dexter' Condo
Location: 1155 103rd St., Miami Beach, Florida 33154
If you're watching reruns of "Dexter" on Netflix, you might recognize this Florida gem.
The condo at the Bay Harbor Club is famous for being home to America's favorite fictional serial killer, Dexter.
Let's Have the Truth
Rumor has it that many of the scenes were filmed in Long Beach, California, which makes sense as it is much closer to Hollywood.
But, alas, Dexter Morgan's apartment is a real-life condo with a large park and a pool, and a view of Biscayne Bay.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom spot is only 759 square feet but has floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedroom and living/dining room space.
The 'Dexter' Condo, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
'Sabrina, the Teenage Witch' House
Location: 64 E Main St., Freehold, New Jersey 07728
Before Netflix released the "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina," 1990s kids had "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" starring Melissa Joan Hart.
The show was set in fictional Westbridge, a town in Massachusetts. But the real house where ABC filmed its establishing shots is located in Freehold, New Jersey.
The show also filmed establishing shots for Sabrina's high school in a nearby town.
A House That Will Leave You Spellbound
The real Spellman Manor is a Victorian house on East Main Street that's just a few streets away from Bruce Springsteen's childhood home.
The stunning home was converted to office spaces and at one time was filled with a law firm and a chiropractor's office.
Sadly, the real house doesn't have any 500-year-old witches, doors that take you to different worlds or talking cats named Salem.

Amanda’s House in 'The Holiday'
Location: 1883 Orlando Rd., San Marino, California 91108
Sure, the house Kate Winslet's character in "The Holiday" lives in is super cute.
But the Los Angeles mansion that Cameron Diaz's character lives in is decadent.
Where Everyday Feels Like a Holiday
The 10,324-square-foot modern-day palace has everything: seven bedrooms, six-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room, a pool and spa, and a paddle tennis court. Plus, there are multiple fountains and gardens on the property.
The estate is in San Marino and across from the Huntington Library. Caltech is nearby. Architect Wallace Neff designed the house, and he lived there full-time, according to Redfin.
Amanda’s House in 'The Holiday,' Current Estimated Value (Redfin)
'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' House
Location: 251 North Bristol Ave., Los Angeles, California 90049
It wasn't just Will Smith's character who was blown away by the house in "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
But, shockingly, the home used for the exterior shots in the show is actually in Brentwood.
Don't Hate the Pad Because It's Beautiful
The home was built in 1937, and it’s massive. There are five bedrooms and five bathrooms in the 6,438-square-foot home. Like the estates surrounding it, the house has various extras, including multiple fireplaces, a pool, a spa, a putting green and a gazebo.
Smith has the show (and its iconic opening featuring the mansion) to thank for his big break in acting. But he also met his wife Jada Pinkett Smith on the set when she auditioned to be his fictional girlfriend.
She didn't get the role, but the two remained friends and started dating the next year.

Noah’s House, 'The Notebook'
Location: 204 Martins Point Rd., Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina 29487
The story of a rich girl, Allie (Rachel McAdams), falling for a poor boy, Noah (Ryan Gosling), has made "The Notebook" a cult favorite, even 15 years after its release.
Behind Every Great House Is a Great Story
In the movie, Noah renovates a 1772 plantation home for the love of his life. And this was in the 1940s, when fictional house repairs weren't that easy. Renovations didn’t come with their own HGTV show.
The Southern gem was a private residence when the movie based on the Nicholas Sparks book was filmed. Nowadays, it is a vacation rental, and you can stay in it for $1,000 a night, according to Trulia.
The South Carolina plantation home has five bedrooms, four-and-a-half bathrooms and is 4,255 square feet. And, if you remember from the movie, it has a waterfront view.

'10 Things I Hate About You' House
Location: 2715 N Junett St., Tacoma, Washington 98407
One of the best romantic comedies ever made is "10 Things I Hate About You" starring Julia Stiles and the late Heath Ledger.
The 1999 film featured a gorgeous Victorian home with a wrap-around porch.
You Won't Loathe This House
The real home is located in Tacoma, Washington, and is 6,000-square-feet. It sold in 2018 for $1,539,719, but the greater Seattle real estate market never seems to slow down. Its value has risen since then.
The house is on a corner lot and has views of the water and mountains. Inside, you'll find original woodwork plus custom inlay hardwood floors.
There are five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, an attic and a finished basement.

'Boy Meets World' House
Location: 4196 Colfax Ave., Studio City, California 91604
This one’s another throwback for kids who grew up in the '90s and parents who sometimes suffered through our shows with us.
You Can Get Through Anything Here
Cory Matthews burst into our lives in 1993. For seven seasons, we watched him juggle the woes of growing up.
The Friday night show centered around Matthews and his circle — his love interest, Topanga; his best friend, Shawn; and his teacher, Mr. Feeny.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom Studio City house is 2,500 square feet. It is in a popular neighborhood, Colfax Meadows, and also has a two-story guest house.

'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' House
Location: 169 E. 71st St., New York, New York 10021
This beautiful brownstone sits on the Upper East Side of New York City and was made famous for its role in the 1961 movie "Breakfast at Tiffany's."
The Fairest Brownstone of Them All
The exterior of the building was used in the film as Holly Golightly’s apartment. The home stretches across 3,600 square feet and has four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The space is split into four floors, an enclosed greenhouse and a basement.
Central Park and the city's Museum Mile are nearby.

'Sixteen Candles' House
Location: 3022 Payne St., Evanston, Illinois 60201
You might recognize this gorgeous brick facade from another ‘80s classic: "Sixteen Candles."
Molly Ringwald as Samantha called this Chicago-area colonial house home.
The 1931 building is fairly massive, with six bedrooms, six bathrooms and 3,250 square feet.
The Time of Your Life May Last a Lifetime
Despite its age, the house has an updated kitchen inside and a lovely outdoor one as well.
The outdoor fireplace and massive backyard make the home great for a large family that tends to forget birthdays.
'Sixteen Candles' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
Location: 4267 Roxbury St., Simi Valley, California 93063
If scary movies are more your thing, may we interest you in this single-family home that's famous for its role in "Poltergeist"?
This House Is Clean
The Simi Valley, California, home has four bedrooms, three bathrooms and about 2,400 square feet. It was built in 1979 and sits on .37 acres.
Apparently, director Steven Spielberg picked out the house for the film because he liked the feel of the neighborhood.

'The Big Chill' House
Location: 1 Hancock St., Beaufort, South Carolina 29902
This large single-family home dates back to 1853 but became famous after being featured in the film "The Big Chill."
In a Cold World, You Need a Warm House
The plantation home set the scene for the characters to gather following the death of one of their friends. It sits on the Beaufort River and is near historic downtown Beaufort.
The mansion is 5,868 square feet and has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms.
'The Big Chill' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
'A Nightmare on Elm Street' House
Location: 1428 N. Genesee Ave., Los Angeles, California 90046
Another spooky gem from the 1980s is this house, which you might recognize from "A Nightmare on Elm Street" as Nancy's house.
House of Your Dreams?
While it isn't on Elm Street, the 2,700-square-foot home is close to all kinds of famous Los Angeles establishments like Sunset Boulevard and the Chateau Marmont.
It has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, but more space is available in the pool house.
Plus, a pool!
'A Nightmare on Elm Street' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
'Nights in Rodanthe' House
Location: 23289 E Beacon Rd., Rodanthe, North Carolina 27968
Nicholas Sparks fans will recognize this one-of-a-kind property right away.
The Victorian home where Richard Gere and Diane Lane fell in love in "Nights in Rodanthe" is on the beach in the Outer Banks in North Carolina.
Never Too Late for a Second Chance
The tall, rambling oceanfront house has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and is nearly 3,000 square feet.
It was a vacation rental for a bit, but was sold in 2018 for $875,000.
It likely would go for a bit more nowadays.
'Nights in Rodanthe' House, Current Estimated Value (Realtor.com)
'Mrs. Doubtfire' House
Location: 2640 Steiner St., San Francisco, California 94115
This Pacific Heights gem would probably sell for several million dollars today. The San Francisco home became famous for its role in "Mrs. Doubtfire."
In the hit, Robin Williams dresses up as a female housekeeper to spend time with his kids post-divorce.
The Victorian home was built in 1893 and is stunning inside and out.
A Blessing With No Disguise
The home is 3,300 square feet, and features four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
It sits on a corner lot and has views of the San Francisco Bay.
The house gets great light and has modern features throughout.
'Mrs. Doubtfire' House, Current Estimated Value (Zillow)
'The Money Pit' House
Location: 199 Feeks Lane, Locust Valley, New York 11560
The massive house featured in "The Money Pit" allegedly turned out to be a real-life home repair nightmare.
The mansion became famous when Tom Hanks and Shelley Long starred in the 1986 flick about a couple who buys a stunning country home only to discover it has endless hidden flaws.
Life Imitates Art, Art Imitates Life
Owner Rich Makowsky told The New York Times that the house was a total money pit for him after he bought it in 2002 for $2.1 million.
"We didn’t realize how bad it was," he said. "The house was falling apart when you went from room to room. We definitely could have done the sequel."
It was recently listed for $4,500,000 in October 2019, but the listing was removed without a sale. The home is enormous and includes eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, eight fireplaces, a six-car garage, a pool and a pool house.

'The Brady Bunch' House
Location: 11222 Dilling St, Studio City, California, 91602
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia! This house located in Studio City, California, was used for the exterior shots in the TV classic, "The Brady Bunch."
It has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and measures 2,477 square feet. There's a nice backyard, too.
But the inside is something really special.
Inside 'The Brady Bunch' House
In 2018, the "Brady Bunch" house went on the market for $1.85 million. It sparked a bidding war. NSYNC band member Lance Bass submitted an offer as did screenwriter/actor Greg Storm, among others.
But they were all outbid by HGTV, which had big plans for the home. The network decided to renovate the interior to replicate the original "Brady Bunch" house and make a miniseries out of it.
And they did — you can see the entire transformation on "A Very Brady Renovation," which aired in 2019 with 10 episodes.
So how much did HGTV pay?

'Gone With the Wind' House
Location: 2176 Monticello St SW, Covington, Georgia, 30014
This 8,650 square-foot mansion was the inspiration for the plantation in "Gone With the Wind."
"Gone With the Wind” novelist Margaret Mitchell spotted the antebellum from a photograph published in the “Atlanta Journal," in the 1930s.
She mailed a note to movie producers to use it as a model for Ashley Wilkes’ home in the upcoming feature film.
A Magnificent Mansion
The manse sat in disrepair for a long while and then lay empty until Nicole Greer bought it in 2011 for $486,000. She sunk over $2 million in renovations into the property and transformed it into a 12-bedroom, 12-bathroom bed and breakfast.
Then in 2019, she decided that she quite frankly had enough of the bed-and-breakfast industry and put the home up for auction with a $1 million starting bid.
Estimates to build the property from the ground up hovered around $6.3 million.
Can you guess how much it last sold for?
How Much 'The Gone With the Wind' House Sold For
According to property records, the auction house, Target Auction, sold the "Gone With the Wind" house for $3 million in August 2019.
But then in December 2019, records say the house sold again, this time for $2.2 million. We're going with the last sold price.

The 'Scream' House
Location: 3871 Tomales Petaluma Rd, Tomales, California 94971
This is Stu's house from "Scream," the very place where the party at the end of the movie takes place and the murderers are revealed.
It has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and 5,500 square feet of living space and sits on a remote 298 acres.
It was precisely what Wes Craven and the "Scream" producers were looking for.
'Movies Don't Create Psychos. Movies Make Psychos More Creative!'
The movie crew used the interior and exterior shots to film the end of the film, but they changed some stuff up. They added stained glass windows and foreboding paintings on the interior to make it look more gothic and imposing.
The property is called Spring Hill Estates and can be rented as a wedding venue. A couple used to pay $10,000 to rent out the house and recreate the "Scream" movie for a Halloween party. Tickets cost $199. But that's no longer the case, as the last "Scream" party was in 2019. TMZ reported that the actual owners wanted their privacy.
How much do you think it's worth?
How Much The 'Scream' House Last Sold For
The "Scream" house last sold for $2.82 million in 2014.
'The Silence of the Lambs' House
Location: 8 Circle St, Perryopolis, Pennsylvania 15473
It puts the mortgage payment in the bank, or it gets the hose again. This is Buffalo Bill's house from "Silence of the Lambs," that creepy ramshackle home where Bill skins women and one day dreams of wearing a suit of their skin.
In reality, there's no pit in the basement (that was a soundstage), and the house looks quite different on the inside now.
For the movie, it was dressed up to look filthy and cluttered.
Would You Buy Me? I'd Buy Me
The five-bedroom, one bathroom Queen Anne-syle house was built in 1910 and features original woodworking, pocket doors, 10-foot ceilings and hardwood floors.
Outside, there's a pool with a train caboose that has been made into a pool house.
This house is certainly more friendly than the place that Bill owned.
How Much 'The Silence of the Lamb''s House Last Sold For
"The Silence of the Lambs" house took a long while to sell.
It originally went up for sale at $300,000 in 2015 but sold for $195,000 in 2016.
Ferris Bueller's House
Location: 4160 Country Club Dr, Long Beach, California 90807
Bueller ... Bueller ... Bueller ... Bueller ... Bueller ... Bueller.
This is Ferris Bueller's House from "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," located in Long Beach, California. The house looks exactly like it did in 1986, when director John Hughes chose this home for his main character.
Both exterior and interior shots in the movie were filmed here.
Built to Take It Easy
This house hasn't been on the market since 1993, when it sold for $775,000. We hope that the interiors have been updated since then, since those design choices from the '80s haven't aged well.
But it's a very large house, with seven bedrooms, five bathrooms and 4,900 square feet of living space. It was originally built in 1928.
How much do you think it's worth today?

'Groundhog Day' Inn
Location: 344 Fremont St, Woodstock, Illinois 60098
"You know if you want a prediction about the weather, you're asking the wrong Phil. I'll give you a winter prediction: It's gonna be cold, it's gonna be gray, and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life."
Phil Connors (Bill Murray) may not have had the best outlook on life while stuck in his time loop, but he grew to appreciate the world the longer he was stuck there.
And this house is where it all started, at 6 a.m. and with Sony and Cher's "I Got You Babe" trailing off on the radio.
'OK Campers, Rise and Shine!'
Located in Woodstock, Illinois, this 5,815 square-foot Queen Anne was only used for exterior shots, as interior shots were filmed in a soundstage built within a nearby warehouse.
Back then it was a private residence, but since then, the home has been transformed into a bed and breakfast called the Cherry Street Inn.

The inn last sold for $695,000 in 2017.
'The Goonies' House
Location: 368 38th St. Astoria, Oregon 97103
Goonies never say die.
This was the main base for "The Goonies," a 1,935 square-foot American farmhouse with clapboard siding and a wraparound porch set in the hills of Astoria, Oregon.
It's now a private residence, which sold for $92,000 in 2001 to a "Goonies" fan.
But not everything has been all smiles and truffle shuffles here. Despite being a private home, this house gets a monumental amount of foot traffic. The owners, which have been kind enough to let people walk on their property, take photos, and sometimes even come inside, have wanted visitors to leave them alone.
In 2015, for the 30th anniversary of "The Goonies," approximately 10,000 to 15,000 people visited the home over that summer, causing the owners to put up blue tarps so people wouldn't peak in their windows. If you do visit, be respectful.
Owner Sandi Preston told the Telegraph she would be willing to sell the house for the right offer. How much do you think it's worth?

We have a feeling it'll take more than that.
'The Sopranos' House
Location: Aspen Drive, North Caldwell, NJ 07006
This house, located in North Caldwell, New Jersey, was a frequent filming location for "The Sopranos."
The owners are a tad private, though, and have blocked off the address from Google Maps, but we'd like to imagine they grumble on down to the mailbox and pick up the paper while wearing a white tank top, slippers and an open bathrobe.
While primary filming for "The Sopranos" house took place in a studio, anyone whose lucky enough to enter the real house will instantly recognize it. The home in the studio is a replica of the actual house in North Caldwell.
The owners, who have owned the home since 1987, put the house up for sale in a whisper listing in 2019. Homes in the area sell for $1.5 to $2 million. How much do you think the owners think their 5,600-square-foot-house is worth?
'The Sopranos' House Value
That $3.4 million is just "starting price," the owners told The New York Times.
Property records do not indicate it was sold within the last year.
'The Godfather' House**
Location: 1011 N. Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills, California 90210
This outlandish, Spanish-style mansion has had many moments in the spotlight. Most famously, it was used as the filming location for the horrifying but iconic horse head scene in Francis Ford Coppola's "The Godfather."
It also was used in "The Bodyguard" and in Beyoncé's "Black Is King." If you're still not convinced of its glamour, it's also where JFK and Jackie O honeymooned.
'I'm Gonna Make You an Offer You Can't Refuse'
The 1927 Beverly House was in the possession of financier Leonard Ross since the '70s, but has fallen into bad times since he declared bankruptcy in 2010.
In 2016, the house was put on the market for $125 million. Given its hand-painted ceilings, large ballroom, large library, and art deco nightclub, you'd think this is a bargain. But not many people appreciate historic houses or have need for this much room.
As a result of a lack of interest, the house's price has been significantly slashed.

This really is an offer we're surprised people are refusing.
'Beverly Hills Cop' House
Location: 609 E Channel Road, Santa Monica, California 90402
You may know Villa Ruchello from the climatic shootout at the end of Eddy Murphy's "Beverly Hills Cop." Or from "Entourage." The house also briefly housed the members of Fleetwood Mac.
The 1932 mansion mimicked hacienda architecture and boasts a total of 13 bedrooms and 14,000 square feet.
'This Thing Is Nicer Than My Apartment'
The beautiful home has extensive gardens with fruit trees, two guest houses, a pizza oven for the pool house, a Japanese-style hot tub, a gigantic swimming pool and an intricately designed interior.
Its coolest feature, however, is a secret speakeasy — original from the time of Prohibition — that you access from a secret bookshelf in the library. We'd pay many millions to live in a house with a secret room.
Despite its claim to fame and admirable size, the mansion fell into disrepair until it was sold for about $23 million to Shane Smith, the cofounder of Vice Media. Smith reportedly did an extensive renovation project on the house and then sold it in 2021 for considerably more than he paid for.

We'd call that a successful flip.
The Playboy Mansion
Location: 10236 Charing Cross Road, Los Angeles, California 90024
We don't need to introduce the Playboy Mansion, one of the most famous houses in the United States.
The house was built in 1927 in what is now one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Los Angeles. Since it was purchased by Hugh Hefner, it appeared on numerous movies Like "Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood," "The House Bunny" and "Beverly Hills Cop II."
It's also appeared on episodes of shows like "Sex and the City," "The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air" and "Entourage."
A House as Famous as Its Owner
The gigantic mansion is infamous for Hugh Hefner's raucous and celebrity-studded parties. It's also the place where alleged abuse by Hefner and his friends toward women happened.
In 2016, Hefner decided to sell the mansion — which he had bought in 1971 for $1.05 million — for an asking price of $200 million. The caveat was that he would be allowed a life estate, which meant he would still live in the house until he died.
The house sold relatively quickly, though Hefner did not get his asking price.

According to the Los Angeles Times, at the time, this was "the biggest home sale ever recorded in Los Angeles County."
'Bird Box' House
Location: 304 N Canyon Blvd, Monrovia, California 91016
Much of the first part of Sandra Bullock's 2018 post-apocalyptic thriller happens in a house where she and other survivors take refuge. The exterior shots for the house, including the scene where Bullock runs home amidst the chaos, were taken in this home in Monrovia, California.
After the movie's release, some fans identified the house. There was a brief craze where people went to take pictures blindfolded in front of it.
You Don't Have to Cover Your Eyes
The owner reportedly got $12,000 for the exterior shots of the home. She also claims the house has been featured in three other movies, but she doesn't remember which ones.
Given that she doesn't have Netflix and had no plans on watching the movie, we can believe her.

For this price, we certainly would not be happy about dealing with people taking pictures in front of our house.
'Amityville Horror' House
Location: 108 Ocean Ave, Amityville, New York 11701
This beautiful five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom house is notorious for the terrifying murders that happened within it in 1974. In November of that year, a man, Ronald DeFeo Jr., murdered his parents and siblings for no apparent reason.
The house rose to even greater notoriety when the family who bought it at a bargain price after the murders reportedly fled, leaving behind most of their possessions. They cited paranormal activity as the reason for their escape.
A book about the supposedly haunted house was published in 1977 with the title "The Amityville Horror." A cult-classic movie by the same title came out in 1979 and sprouted a series of sequels and remakes.
We don't think this is the house we'd try to buy, but not everyone cares about its grim past. The house has been sold numerous times, most recently hitting the market at a listing price of $850,000 in 2016.
Unsurprisingly, the sellers did not get as much as they hoped for it.

Given that the house has been embedded into the American consciousness as the site of a haunting, we think the previous owners got a fair amount of money.
'Harry Potter' House
Location: 12 Picket Post Close, Bracknell, United Kingdom
The first time we see Harry in the film franchise, he is a baby being dropped off at 4 Privet Drive. During the filming of "The Sorcerer's Stone," a real house in Bracknell, U.K., was used for establishing outside shots.
In later films, the studio simply decided to build a set replicating the street to save costs. Still, the real house where we see Harry's life before he knows he's a wizard continues to receive attention.
No Room in the Cupboard Under the Stairs
It's been a tumultuous journey fro the magical house despite its claim to fame.
The house was sold for around $395,203 in 2010 to a family that did not know its past. In 2016, the owners decided to place it on the market for about $647,315. The house actually sold at $885,800, more than $200,000 over the listing price.
But that sale fell through, and the house was put again on the market for a relatively low price of $599,550. Fame didn't seem to help it much, given that it sold for an unspecified amount that was reportedly below the asking price.
'Harry Potter' House, Current Estimated Value (Zoopla)
Though it sold for less, British real state company Zoopla estimates its value at £481,000, which is about $655,492. Not bad for a house featured on a couple of outside shots in a single movie.
'A Star Is Born' House
Location: 481 Cold Canyon Rd, Calabasas, California 91302
There are four versions of "A Star Is Born," including ones starring the legendary Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand. The latest version of the movie sees Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper fall in love as they navigate the ups and downs of marriage, addiction and fame.
Part of the film — including its most heart-wrenching scenes — was filmed in a beautiful California home, which was the perfect setting for a country music singer's secluded home.
In the Shallows
The home used during filming is a wonder of design. Apparently, the home was not occupied during the time of listing, as it had recently been put on the market for sale.
It worked out for the film crew, who were able to spend 15 days shooting here. The house was built in 1973 and renovated in 2015.
Boasting 2,986 square feet, it did not come cheap to its eventual buyer.

However, the house's star continues to be rising. Zillow currently estimates its value at $2,732,400.
