When you watch a movie, you feel like you get to know the characters and the locations where they were filmed. The following is a list of houses made famous by movies made famous by Hollywood.
Mrs. Doubtfire is a movie that was filmed in a Victorian house on Steiner St. in San Francisco in 1993. Ever since the death of actor Robin Williams, the main character of Mrs. Doubtfire, the front steps have become a shrine of sorts to fans.
Top Gun is a movie that was released in 1986 starring Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis. In more recent years, the house has gotten some upgrades such as a new coat of yellow paint and has been fenced in. The house was originally built-in 1887 and was known as “the Graves House.” As for the location, it still sits on its original location on Pacific Street in California.
Now here’s a movie that almost everyone should know; the Twilight series. This house was used throughout the entire movie series and has become well-known across the globe. If you aren’t familiar with the series it begins with Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Part 1, and finally Breaking Dawn Part 2. If you ever want to visit the house, it’s in Portland, Oregon.
The Godfather was released in 1972, and the house is located in Stanton Island, New York. Have you ever found yourself wanting to live in the same house that the Godfather lived in? Well, you can for about $3 million dollars. The house also features a man cave and an English pub.
And finally, the castle made famous from the hit TV series Downton Abby. For those of you unfamiliar with the series, it airs on PBS, and it first started in 2010.
Although I’ve only covered five houses, there are tons of homes around the globe that have been idolized, but sadly not all of them are real. Gone With the Wind (1939) for example was made from plywood and papier-mâché.
