They’re iconic. They’re cool. When they’re really good, they’re as much a part of a movie as the characters. We’re talking about homes from the silver screen.
Whether it’s the compound of the Corleone Mafia family from The Godfather or the country abode of The Maitlands in Beetlejuice, the dwelling of characters is often just as important as the storyline. Some homes have become so iconic that the mere sight of them can give us goosebumps or chills and location tours are a thriving business, bringing in thousands of dollars every year from those film fans desperate to glimpse the places they’ve watched on the big screen.
In this piece, we’ve picked a few of our favourite movie residences that are still popular today. Whether the film is scary, funny, happy or sad, if they’ve captured our attention, they’ve remained a part of us. Perhaps proving that home really is where the heart is.
