HGTV Is The Winning Bidder On 'The Brady Bunch' House

HGTV Is The Winning Bidder On 'The Brady Bunch' House

In an unexpected twist suitable for a '70s sitcom, HGTV, the home of such shows as Masters of Flip and Love It or List It, ended up purchasing the house and the network intends to refurbish it to its "1970s glory".

"One example of our new project for HGTV will speak to those Brady Bunch fans", Zaslav said during a company-wide earnings call, according to a Discovery spokeswoman.

"As many of you may have heard, we placed the winning bid on the iconic Brady Bunch house - at least that's what we were told", he wrote.

And the winning bidder for The Brady Bunch house in Studio City, California, is.

According to a listing on Zillow, the 2,477-square-foot house - located at 11222 Dilling Street in North Hollywood, California - is the second-most photographed home in America, just behind the White House and boasts two beds, three baths, and "generous entertaining spaces". He then offered his design services to the future #IconicDreamHome owner and tagged HGTV.

The house was hot on the market, with other offers coming in from stars including 'N Sync singer Lance Bass, who says he was "heartbroken" when his deal fell through after the bidding deadline.

The stock of MoviePass's parent company, Helios and Matheson, closed last Friday at just 7 cents. It later said it paid back that loan.

"The agent representing the estate informed us we made the winning bid (which was WAY over the asking price) after the final deadline for all offers had passed - even writing up the "winning bid" for my team after informing me of the good news", he explained. "We were prepared to go even higher but totally discouraged by the sellers agent, they will outperform any bid with unlimited resources". "I just hope it is not demolished". The residence came on the market recently after almost 50 years and is reportedly the second most-photographed home in the country after the White House.

Another losing bidder was Gregory Storm, a Hollywood screenwriter and director, who replied to the same Bass tweet that Scott did.

The inside of the home isn't the same as we saw on the show; all interior Brady Bunch scenes were shot in a studio.

A disgruntled Bass further expressed his frustrations in the post, thinking he had been used, adding: "How is this fair or legal??"

The two-bedroom, three-bathroom split-level home was put up for sale after the children of the original homeowners, George and Violet McCallister, chose to sell the property when their parents died.
