Perhaps it's not surprising that the home of Richie Cunningham, protagonist of the TV show Happy Days, is located in West Los Angeles. But to a generation of television-watching kids, the Cunningham family—and the Fonz, naturally—lived on the shores of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
But Zillow.com, a website that shows users the value of homes by their address, will help shatter these illusions with its list of famous houses from televised lore. The site provides the approximate market value—and current aerial photos—of each abode.
For example, the Brady Bunch house—which was actually supposed to be in Southern California—is only a short drive away from the Cunninghams, on Dilling Street in North Hollywood. (Crossover episode, anyone?) It's valued at approximately $1 million (€.8 million).
Over in Beverly Hills, Jed Clampett's oil-financed house (located on Bel Air Road) is listed for a cool $25 million. While teen soap opera Beverly Hills 90210 helped make the wealthy enclave's zip code instantly recognizable, the series might have been more realistically called Altadena 91001, as the Walsh family home was actually located in this suburb north of Pasadena.
On the East Coast, the apartment featured in the program Friends, located in Greenwich Village, is priced at $2.8 million, while an apartment next door to the Boston bar featured in Cheers can be yours for just under $500,000. Living with Boston drunks or obnoxious twenty-somethings? You decide, but we're going with Cliff and Norm.
Reality television is well represented on the Zillow list, as well. Ozzy Osbourne's Doheny Road pad in Beverly Hills—made famous when the Black Sabbath lead singer became a reality TV sensation—is valued at $8 million.
For those looking for a more modest family existence, the Cunningham's family home is valued at a cool $1.3 million.
