HGTV Just Bought The Brady Bunch House
Here’s the story….
of a house you might remember from your childhood. A house that was featured in every episode of The Brady Bunch. A sitcom created by Sherwood Schwartz that aired from September 1969 to March 1974 on ABC.
The story of a man with his three boys and a woman with her three girls. One big blended family trying to make it work. The series aired for five seasons and, after its cancellation in 1974, went into syndication in September 1975. It was never a big success when it first aired but became more popular in syndication.
I remember so many episodes. I still love to look back on the show.
Today the HOUSE that we knew as the Brady Bunch house has been sold to HGTV in a bidding war with N*Sync star Lance Bass. He told his fans his attempt to score the TV home was thwarted by a “Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost”
Discovery CEO David Zaslav said “You may have heard that the house from the iconic series was recently on the market in California. I’m excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the Brady Bunch home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can. More detail to come over the next few months but we’ll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories about this beloved piece of American TV history.”
The property, – a big part of TV history – was used frequently for interior shots during “Brady Bunch” episodes and is more than 12,500 square feet in size.
N*SYNC singer Lance Bass was also trying to snag the property, but as he told his fans, his attempt to score the TV home was thwarted by a “Corporate Buyer (Hollywood studio) who wants the house at any cost.”
The house was originally listed at 1.88 million, according to Zillow. Discovery did not announce what they purchased the home for.
Which HGTV superstar do you think they will bring in to work on the house?
