HGTV Buys ‘Brady Bunch’ House And We’re All Excited To Watch The Renovation

Everyone knows the lyrics to the theme song of The Brady Bunch: “Here’s the story of a lovely lady, who was bringing up three very lovely girls.”

The Brady Bunch was everyone’s favorite television show from the 1970s. Who didn’t love the Brady family? The Brady’s house is one of the most recognizable homes in television history. Last week, Discovery Inc.’s HGTV bought the house to restore it to its ‘70s glory, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Quite The Bidding War

Who wouldn’t want to live in one of the best houses in America? Located on quiet Dilling Street in North Hollywood, California, the ranch house, used for the hit sitcom’s exterior shots, hit the market on July 21. The asking price for the 2,477-square-foot home was only $1.88 million, which is cheaper than most houses in California. It’s not surprising the sellers quickly received multiple offers, including one from Lance Bass, a member of the 1990’s boy band, *NSYNC.

Bass badly wanted the house, but perhaps not as bad as HGTV. The two competed head-to-head for the house in an ugly bidding war. HGTV finally secured the house after bidding $3.5 million.

It’s Time To Change

After the bidding war, Discovery CEO David Zaslav commented, “I am excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the ‘Brady Bunch’ home to its 1970 glory as only HGTV can.”

More details will come over the next few months about the network’s plans to renovate the home, but it’s rumored that the popular HGTV Property Brothers will have a hand in renovating the home to its original state.

Restoring An Iconic House

HGTV has made plans to film the renovation process as a new television series on its network. But if you’re like many fans, you’re probably wondering if HGTV will change the exterior of the house too much. But rest assured! Instead, HGTV is reportedly only adding 4,000 square feet to the back of the house and is leaving the front exterior recognizable to every Brady Bunch fan.

Let’s take a trip back to the 1970s where Peter threw a football at Marcia’s nose, and somewhere in the distance, we can hear Jan shout, “Marcia! Marcia! Marcia!”
