HGTV Sells Iconic Brady Bunch House at a Loss

Wanna bet someone’s gonna try to pin this on Jan?

TVLine has confirmed that the iconic and massively renovated Brady Bunch house — which HGTV put on the market last May — ended up selling for $3.2 million. Not only is that $2.3 million less than the $5.5 million listing price, but it’s $300K shy of the $3.5 million HGTV paid for it in 2018.

HGTV poured a staggering $1.9 million into the North Hollywood, Calif., property in an effort to recreate some of the series’ iconic interiors, including the floating staircase, the burnt orange-and-avocado green kitchen and the kids’ Jack-and-Jill bathroom. (Remember, the 1970s-style home was used only for the exteriors of the classic sitcom.)

The extensive renovations were depicted in HGTV’s 2019 series A Very Brady Renovation, which saw hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott working alongside surviving original Brady Bunch cast members to add all the nostalgic bells and whistles.

It’s unclear why HGTV ended up taking such a loss on the property, especially given Los Angeles’ still-overheated housing market. TVLine has reached out to the listing agent as well as reps for HGTV seeking comment.

The Brady Bunch, which ran from 1969-1974 on ABC, followed Mike and Carol Brady and their blended family of six children and live-in housekeeper Alice as they tackled everyday problems while living under one roof.

The Wall Street Journal was first to report news of the abode’s surprising sale price.
