No one can imagine what they can achieve in the coming years and how unexpected some achievements can be. The Brady Bunch, the TV show that made its mark in the late 60s and early 70s came into the limelight with its nostalgic feeling because of none other than HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation. Understand the uniqueness, interiors, and exteriors of The Real Brady Bunch house architecture at The Architecture Designs.
The house is situated at 11222, Dilling Street, studio city, California and is purchased by HGTV. After purchasing the house, HGTV turned this house into the exact replica of the set of the TV series The Brady Bunch which stood at Paramount Studios. The house has all 70s charm and a touch of originality after its renovation. Also, when the first episode of a very Brady renovation aired, it received a whooping response of 8.1 million views.
The real Brady Bunch house represents the iconic American homes in the retro style but with sheer elegance and beauty. The entryway of the house greets you with the beautiful outdoor lamps on both sides and the beautiful cut out of the path. The outdoors is surrounded by the lush green plants and trees making the house look more beautiful and breathtaking.
Let’s head to the very first place, that is the entryway. As soon as we enter the main door there is this beautiful hallway room that was seen frequently on the show. The place contains the iconic stone wall and the famous floating stairs. The unique thing about the house is that it has different levels such as we can say that it has sunken the living room as it is two steps down.
The room then moves three steps up at the landing of the stairs and further sinks down which opens straight to Mike’s sunken den. The living room changed a bit from time to time during the show but it had all the features covered in the stone wall such as a TV, couch, the indoor plant, painting, showcase, standing floor lamp, and various other interesting elements.
The dining room was exactly beside one of the three glass sliding doors that helped to see what exactly is going on inside the house from outside. This dining place also moved a bit on the sow depending on the shots as sometimes the table was right against the sliding doors while it was moved perpendicular to the door the other times.
One of the unique places everyone loved about the house is Mike’s den. The shots were taken where this den was looked up straight from the living room through the fireplace. Each and every element of this place is unique and designed to give the perfect sunken but visible place. This den contained the window which can be witnessed from outside and form an essential part of the exterior of the house.
There is nothing more iconic than the stairs and the mysterious place underneath them. These stairs were the symbol of the show and as soon as you see it, you know where exactly you are. Right above the staircase, there is an art piece made out of glass that was a take on the famous artist Piet Mondrian.
The house gave major goals with its outstanding design. This includes places such as the kitchen, the laundry room, Alice’s bedroom, the family room and a lot more places on the first floor. After these iconic places there comes the places located upstairs. There is the boys’ room, girls’ room, the master bedroom, and one more floor above having Greg’s groovy attic bedroom.
Although the finishes of the home are little dated, the open concept of the family room is very modern-day and perfect for entertaining. The layout of the house is totally loving and beautiful. The split-level concept of the house and short flight of stairs designs of the house perfectly coincided with the television era at that time.
From front yard to backyard to the family room to all the bedrooms the design, layout, and wallpaper used were trendy and are still rocking.
