HGTV’s multi-million dollar bet on TV nostalgia doesn’t appear to have paid off. The Studio City Midcentury home from The Brady Bunch, bought and transformed by the TV network in 2018 for $3.5 million, has sold for $3.2 million. It has been listed for $5.5 million.
Meticulously rebuilt and designed to replicate the set of the home from the beloved 1970s sitcom, the home is reportedly second-most photographed home in the U.S. after the White House. According to the Wall Street Journal, the buyer is Tina Trahan, wife of former HBO chief executive Chris Albrecht. She said she plans to use the property for fundraising and charitable events.
From the infamous staircase that anchors the home, to the bright orange formica kitchen counters, to the blue bunk beds and pink twin beds—and let’s not forget about the groovy attic—the 5,140 square foot home boasts five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The home has soaring ceilings, big windows and sliding glass doors which fill the space with natural light. Plus, curated furnishings and accessories are included in the sale and will take you back in time to a unique era.
Danny Brown of Compass held the listing. Marcy Roth and Fredrik Eklund with Douglas Elliman repped the buyer.
