Many houses you’ll see in Hollywood films are built inside the confines of a film studio. However, there are several that serve as actual homes in the real world. Indeed, the history of the big screen is littered with properties that have stood long before and long after first appearing onscreen. From Home Alone to Halloween, here’s a look at 40 you can visit, rent or even buy.
40. The Hillards’ home
The Hillard family home seen in family-friendly classic Mrs Doubtfire has become a popular tourist destination since the film’s release in 1993. And one of its stars, Sally Field, certainly made it easy for fans to find. Indeed, the actress’ character Miranda actually reveals the real-life address of the property during the movie. 2640 Steiner is situated in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of San Francisco which also houses the Tanner gang in sitcom Full House.
39. Dr. Frank-n-Furter’s castle
Almost the entirety of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show takes place inside this historic castle. And fans of Richard O’Brien’s madcap scientist Dr. Frank-n-Furter can now enjoy a night’s stay at the property, as it’s since been converted into a hotel. The building – which dates back to 1859 – can be found on the Oakley Court estate in the English county of Berkshire. It’s also been used for many other old school horrors, including The Brides of Dracula.
