This is my all-time favorite movie house, as I am sure that it is many of yours, too.  I love this house!  It is so welcoming.   Even the song that they play in the movie when they introduce the home is great!

I love how this house has a gate on the driveway!  I have been trying to talk my husband into doing this at our house for about two years (putting a gate at the back of the driveway so that the kids can play at the top, like in this driveway).

I love the living room and how the couches face each other and are close to one other instead of being against the wall.   I do notice that they don’t have a TV in the room, but if they did, I”m sure it would be above the fire place.  I love the built ins and all of the white in the rooms.  I actually have these couches in our family room and I love them!

Here is the other side of this room.  (You can’t see the light blue grandfather clock on the other wall, but its beautiful, too!)

The kitchen is great, too (a little cluttered for my tastes, but still a nice kitchen).  I like the white cabinets!

  1. I love, love, love that house!
    I also love the house from Its Complicated. Meryl’s kitchen is beautiful BEFORE the reno!

  2. I found your blog through the Lovin’ The Weekend Blog Hop and I immediately was drawn to this post because I, too, love this house and this movie! I’ve never sat and thought about my favorite movie house, but this is a fun, unique idea. I’m now going to give it some thought. I’m glad I found your blog. My little corner is I hope you come visit soon!

  3. LOVE the Father of the Bride house! A few years ago I read that it was for sale and took a look at the interior pictures. I was devastated to see that the interior was completely different than it looked in the film. I also love the house in What Lies Beneath with Harrison Ford.

    1. Oh- you’re kidding!! Too bad it didn’t look the same b/c it was so beautiful & welcoming!

  4. I like different houses in movies and TV shows. I like the dad’s house in the original The Parent Trap. It was great looking, and the outdoor spaces and pool were nice, too. The house in a movie called Christmas in Connecticut was beautiful, too. It was the dream Christmas house, the way it was done. I think the apartment in I Love Lucy was cute. I think it was so much larger than an apartment would be, but it is from a TV show. The bedroom was just ok, though. I like elements of the house on The Andy Griffith Show, though not everything with it. I think the stone fireplace in its living room was very pretty, and the front porch was nice. The eat in white kitchen seemed homey and was cute. I like that the dining area and living room were in an open layout. The home feels realistic to small town life, though I know it did not all hold up over time in its style in some ways. The exterior look I like, too. I do like it as far as it seemed a realistic type of home someone might have in the rural south, although some of us have huge homes, too. :). The apartment in You’ve Got Mail I liked. I think it seems a little nostalgic and very personal and layered but not cluttered. I like some of the homes in Hallmark movies, especially the Christmas cabins and homes the actresses have in the movies. There is not really a certain house or cabin, just in general. I liked the apartment Doris Day had in Pillow Talk. I don’t have a 1960s home or the look, but I do like it when it is in a pretty way. I like more current styles, too.

    1. Hi,
      I love his house in The Parent Trap, too – and the land that surrounds it! Our daughter loves that movie. 🙂 I don’t think I’ve seen Christmas in Connecticut, but I’ll have to watch it. 🙂
      Another favorite is the house from The Family Stone- it’s so cozy & gives off such a feeling of nostalgia.

      Have a great day!
