Here’s the story…of a house for Bradys!
From the inside, 11222 Dilling Street in Studio City, California, seems pretty standard, but from the outside, it’s easy to see why its asking price is $1.85 million. It’s the house used in exterior shots for The Brady Bunch—the Bradys’ beloved home, described by its sales listing as “the second-most photographed home in the United States.”
But the house’s future is iffy. Depending on the buyer, it could end up being demolished by developers.
They should just turn it into a Brady Bunch Museum so the public can see it.— Hanna (@hep12298) July 20, 2018
Of course, the price tag is a pretty high one for a developer whose only intention is to clear the land, so the future is still unknown. Jodie Levitus Francisco, a realtor with Berkshire Hathaway, commented to Deadline:
I have several buyers already interested. They’re developers for the lot size. They might tear down, but the listing agent said the family was hoping to get someone to preserve the house, and at $1.85, I don’t know if a developer would pay that much.
Our family home ... it should be protected by historical society and be numbered 9 ... to never be touched and always remembered as "here's a story of a lovely lady with 3 kids of her own ... "— lee kangaroo (@09leeroo) July 19, 2018
The home contains “two bedrooms with three bathrooms and has two master suites.” Though the lot is only a third of an acre, the house itself comprises 2477 square feet. It was last for sale in 1973, when it came into the possession of its current owners.
Even though I never stepped inside this house, it is up for sale now. It was used on the Brady Bunch for our exterior. It will always hold a very special place in my ❤️! ? Sooooo many amazing memories!— Maureen McCormick (@MoMcCormick7) July 20, 2018
The last sale of the house happened right in the middle of Brady Bunch‘s time on air, which lasted from September 1969 to March 1974. It might not have been as pricey at the time—The Brady Bunch wasn’t a huge hit when it came out. Over time, however, it developed a devoted fan base through its regular reruns.
To many, the house is now iconic.

NOOOOOOOOO! This house should be listed as a historic landmark and saved from the bulldozers!— JayR70 (@JayAre70) July 19, 2018
Do you want to start a big family or maybe blend two families into one? Do you have $1.85 million lying around? Perhaps this is the house for you!
