The Brady Bunch House
11222 Dilling Street · North Hollywood, CA
You either love it, or you love hating it. Either way, you've watched the show more than once, just like everyone else. That's why this house is one of the most recognizable on television. This is where the Brady Bunch (or the Brady Brood as they were known in pre-production) carried on their perpetually syndicated antics from day to day.
Some say Mike Brady couldn't have been much of an architect, trying to fit six kids in two bedrooms with one bathroom between them. But, I say he's an amazing architect for fitting in a second story where one didn't exist in the first place. The fact is, this house is only a split-level dwelling. And it's really not all that big. How did he do it? Well, the set designers simply attached a fake window to the front. Problem solved.
And FYI, all the establishing shots of the house were filmed before the show ever aired and were recycled for the series' five-year run. Thats why the house and its vegetation never seemed to change, much like the Bradys themselves.
The current residents say they don't regret buying the Brady house, even though they get more than their fair share of ogling sightseers. The only problem has been too many imbeciles trying to peek in the front window to get a look at the Brady living room. The only place you'd see that is Stage 5 at Paramount Studios, and only if you live in the years 1969 to 1974. That's why they erected an iron fence around the front yard.
Incidentally, the iron fence and the owners' refusal to remove it was one of the reasons this house did not make an appearance in the 1995 spoof The Brady Bunch Movie. The house you see in the film is actually a facade built in front of an Encino home, the residents of which were paid five figures to stare at the back of it for a few weeks. Hey! I've got an apartment somebody could use!
