Where’s the House from ‘Home Alone 3’?

Year in and year out, we know the holidays are almost upon us when TV networks start airing Home Alone, the iconic family movie that has by now become synonymous with Christmas cheer. And while the first two Home Alone movies starring Macaulay Culkin are the clear fan favorites, the third one (written and produced by the same John Hughes that gave us the first two festive flicks) was deemed the least successful in the series — by far — and failed to make a lasting impression.

And that’s not because of the plot, cast, or setting, but rather the result of the ultra-high expectations created by the first two Home Alone movies, and the fondness audiences had for Macaulay Culkin (which refused to return for a role in the third one, despite popular demand). In fact, the plot of the third Home Alone was quite an elaborate — and downright frightening — one, seeing Alex Pruitt, an 8-year-old boy living in Chicago, fending off international spies who were seeking a top-secret computer chip that was hidden in his toy car.

Unlike a normal cat burglar situation — the first two movies featured petty thieves just trying to score a hit during the holidays, eyeing million-dollar-homes left unattended while the owners were celebrating elsewhere — Home Alone 3 is actually a matter of national security. With four thieves (said to be working for a North Korean terrorist organization) looking to retrieve the toy car/computer chip gifted to Alex by his unknowing neighbor, Mrs. Hess, the movie’s plot tackles a far more dangerous situation that the first two, despite the light way in which it is presented.

But there are two major things that all the Home Alone movies have in common: a clever, brave 8-year-old that will stop at nothing to protect himself and a beautiful Chicago-area home that acts as the ‘battleground’ of sorts where the bad guys get what’s coming to them. And since we’ve already covered the house in the first Home Alone movies, we thought I’d be the perfect time to do some scouting and find the one in the third movie too, especially since it’s no less beautiful.

The real-life house from Home Alone 3

While the movie’s storyline places it in Chicago, the house used in the third Home Alone is located in Evanston — a city 12 miles north of Downtown Chicago. According to ItsFilmedThere.com, the exact address is 3026 Normandy Place, Evanston, and a quick Google Maps search confirms that, showing us the exact same Pruitt family house we see in the movie.

According to real estate website Zillow.com, the Pruitt family home is worth a little over $1,000,000, with neighboring properties all selling for about the same amount — though admittedly, none of the other houses that line the street had a high profile movie credit in their property history. Nor did they have Hollywood A-listers on their grounds (just in case you forgot, the most famous cast member in Home Alone 3 was none other than Avengers star Scarlett Johansson, who played Alex Pruitt’s sister in the 1997 movie).

Just in case you were wondering, the house where Alex Pruitt’s neighbor — Mrs. Hess — supposedly lived is actually located next door, at 3025 Normandy Place.

Move in Next to Californication’s Hank Moody in This Industrial-Style Loft in Venice, CA

If you’re a die-hard Californication fan with a sizable real estate budget, here’s one opportunity you won’t want to let go to waste: a loft has recently come to market right next to Hank Moody’s fictional home in the popular Showcase series.

The modern loft with panoramic ocean views is set at 25 Brooks Ave in Venice, neighboring Hank Moody’s crib from the popular 7-season series (26 Brooks Ave served as filming location for the troubled novelist’s Los Angeles digs). But there’s much more to love about this loft beyond its association with the hit TV show.

The loft has a pull-up garage door window

Designed by award-winning local architect Steven Ehrlich, the 2-bed, 3-bath loft has open, airy interiors with soaring ceilings and industrial-style ceilings with exposed ductwork. Its light-filled living room has been fitted with polished concrete floors, expansive windows, a large fireplace and a pull-up garage door window that brings the outside ocean air in.

There’s a 2-and-a-half-story art wall right in the middle

Right between the living space and the kitchen, there’s a striking 2.5-story art wall that’s visible from every room of the loft condo. This adds to the artsy appeal of the unique abode, making it the perfect choice for art aficionados (or creative types of the Hank Moody variety).

The tall art wall separates the living room area from the kitchen, and is visible from every room of the house. Image credit: The Agency

The bedroom is suspended over the living room

Aiming for that New York-loft vibe, the master suite is suspended over the living room, overlooking the rest of the space — with direct view of the 2.5-story art wall. The bedroom has been fitted with a showroom closet and large master balcony. As the listing rightfully points out, both bedrooms offer the option for communal living with no walls or complete privacy by closing the dividers.

The place is great for entertaining guests

The open floor sees the living room open up into the dining room and kitchen, which makes it all one large space for get-togethers (of course, once they become the norm again and we’re done with our current hermit lifestyle). The custom-made chef’s kitchen is outfitted with Viking stove, oversized Sub-Zero fridge and custom cabinetry — to match the rest of the décor.

And while the industrial-style loft may be great for indoor entertaining, it’s the outdoor space that takes the cake. The 25 Brooks Ave unit comes with a private entertainer’s rooftop deck with corner ocean views of Catalina and Point Dume. In a Hank Moody-esque twist, there’s also a sunset facing soaking tub on the rooftop deck (you know, for those times when the party ends with someone getting drunk as a skunk and falling asleep in the bath tub).

Just steps off the Venice boardwalk

The 1,844-square-foot loft isn’t only close to filming locations; its address places it just moments from the beach, as well as the Venice Boardwalk, Abbot Kinney and Rose Avenue.

To buy into 25 Brooks Ave, it’ll cost you $2,440,000. The Agency’s Jagger Kroener and Michael Grady hold the listing.

Daniel LaRusso’s House on Cobra Kai: A Real-Life Tuscan-Style Villa

In Netflix’s popular series inspired by the iconic ’80s movie the original Karate Kid, Daniel LaRusso, has moved up in the world — and traded the rundown apartment complex he lived in with his mother for a downright gorgeous Tuscan villa in a posh Los Angeles neighborhood.

In the 30 years or so since Daniel (played by Ralph Macchio) famously defeated the Cobra Kai star student and two-time winner of the All Valley Karate Championship, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), LaRusso becomes the owner of a successful car dealership chain in Southern California. He lives happily with his wife, Amanda, and their two children, Samantha and Anthony, in a large home with a swimming pool in Encino — an upscale neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles. At least that’s what the storyline of Cobra Kai claims.

With countless scenes in the series taking place at the LaRusso residence, we couldn’t help ourselves and had to track down the house featured in the Netflix show. Especially since the Tuscan style house is so damn beautiful (and I’m willing to bet I wasn’t the only one reduced to tears to see members of the Cobra Kai dojo make a complete mess out of it at the end of the third season).

Where is Daniel LaRusso’s house in Cobra Kai?

Carefully picked to reflect Daniel San’s new status in the world, his luxurious-yet-homey Spanish-inspired villa is said to be located in Encino, a quiet, affluent neighborhood in San Fernando Valley. While still geographically close to Reseda, where Daniel lived with his mother after moving to Los Angeles, Encino is worlds apart in terms of affordability and home prices — which also signals the divide between Daniel and Johnny, and which worlds they belong to as grown-ups. Boasting impressive architecture and verdant green spaces, Encino has housed a number of notable residents, from Richard Pryor to Johnny Cash, and even got a shot-out from Frank Zappa in his 1982 hit song “Valley Girl”.

Where to find it in real life

With its Tuscan-style architecture, Mediterranean-inspired décor, lush landscaping, and generous pool area, the house looks like it was taken straight out of a rich Los Angeles neighborhood. So much so, that many people have pointed out the striking similarities between Daniel Larusso’s house and that of the Walsh family from Beverly Hills 90210. While the two TV homes do share some architectural features, two very different locations were used for filming.

In real life, the LaRusso house isn’t even in California. The house is actually in Marietta, Georgia, a beautiful community located just northwest of Atlanta. While we won’t provide the exact address of the home (out of privacy concerns, as this is an actual single-family house that a lucky family calls home), we did manage to track it down on Zillow.com, and find out quite a few things about it.

With an estimated worth of $1.7 million, the charming Tuscan villa has 6 bedrooms and 7 baths spread across roughly 9,000 square feet of living space. As seen on the Netflix show, the house comes with tons of outdoor space, including a resort-like pool and al fresco dining, and there’s also a greenhouse and an indoor atrium. Other nice features include cork floors, clay walls, and many expansive, rounded windows that add to the appeal of the house.

Other Cobra Kai filming locations are split between Georgia and California

Despite the action of the show taking place in California, many of the locations seen on screen are actually in Georgia. Just like the LaRusso family home, their dealership and the country club they belong to are both in Georgia, as is the fictional West Valley High School (scenes take place C.T. Martin Natatorium and Recreation Center in Adamsville, Atlanta).

In fact, the only prominent location from the series that’s actually based in California is Johnny Lawrence’s apartment building, said to be in Reseda. In reality, it’s located about a 10-minute drive away, on Burbank Blvd in Tarzana.

This isn’t the first time Georgia serves as filming grounds for shows said to be based in different cities. Due to its great tax incentives, the Peach State has been attracting film crews in droves, with many popular shows being filmed here including Ozark, The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, The Haunting of Hill House, Sweet Magnolias, and many more.

Greystone Mansion: the Most Familiar House You’ve Never Visited

There’s this mansion in Beverly Hills that a large part of the world’s population has already seen, even though they might not realize it.

It’s a historic house that’s been used in endless Hollywood movies, TV series, and music videos. After you finish reading this article, you might just realize that you’ve seen this house before, too. Well, now you will also know its history, and when you see it again on your TV screen (and more than likely, you will), you’ll recognize it. 

The place we’re referring to is known as Greystone Mansion or Doheny Mansion, and it’s located at 905 Loma Vista Drive in Beverly Hills. The Tudor Revival mansion was originally completed in 1928, after three years’ worth of construction and a total cost of over $4 million — an insane amount at the time. 

The inception of Doheny Mansion

The 55-room, 46,000-square-foot mansion lies on a 16-acre site within Trousdale Estates. It was designed by architect Gordon Kaufmann and built by the P.J. Walker Company. The land was actually a wedding gift from oil tycoon Edward Doheny to his son, Edward ‘Ned’ Doheny, and his new wife, Lucy Smith. 

Edward Doheny was an American oil tycoon who drilled the first oil well in Los Angeles in 1892. His story was depicted in the Academy Award-winning movie There Will Be Blood, starring Daniel Day-Lewis. Interestingly enough, the movie was actually filmed at Doheny Mansion. 

Ned Doheny’s house became known as Greystone because it was built mainly of stone, and has a grey, stone-cold appearance. The house took roughly three years to build, and included stables, kennels, tennis courts, a gatehouse, a swimming pool and pavilion, a lake with babbling brooks and waterfalls, and even a fire station. 

A bittersweet move-in for the Dohenys

Unfortunately, Ned Doheny didn’t get to enjoy his new home for too long. Just four months after moving into Greystone Mansion, Doheny was found dead in the house, alongside his secretary and friend, Hugh Plunkett. The case was ruled a murder-suicide, however, some claim that there’s more to that story.

Doheny was killed by his own gun, and he was not buried with the rest of his family, but in a different cemetery, just a few yards away from where Plunkett was laid to rest. This has led some to believe that Doheny might have committed suicide, however, this is just a theory that certainly adds a bit of mystery to Greystone Mansion. 

Following Ned Doheny’s death, his wife Lucy remarried and lived in the house with her children until 1955. Greystone Mansion was later sold to Paul Trousdale, the developer of Trousdale Estates, who then sold it to Henry Crown of Chicago. The businessman never actually lived in the house, but leased it out to film studios — and that’s how Greystone’s prolific movie career started. 

Greystone Mansion, Hollywood’s favorite filming location

Over the decades, Greystone Mansion has been featured in numerous Hollywood movies and TV series, including classics like The Big Lebowski, Eraserhead, The Witches of Eastwick, Death Becomes Her, Batman & Robin, The Bodyguard, Dark Shadows, The Prestige, The Social Network, and X-Men.

The mansion has also made appearances in TV series, including Alias and The Young and the Restless, and it also played the part of Chilton Academy in Gilmore Girls

Last but not least, Greystone Mansion has been featured in commercials and even music videos. You might have already toured the house alongside Robert Downey Jr., in the music video for Elton John’s single I Want Love. Let us refresh your memory:

In 1965, the City of Beverly Hills purchased Greystone Mansion, and a few years later, the property became a public city park. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, as Doheny Estate/Greystone.

The mansion continues to be used as a filming location and a destination for special events such as music festivals, fundraisers, and even weddings. Greystone Mansion houses the Beverly Hills Flower & Garden Festival, the yearly Catskills West drama camp, and The Annual Hollywood Ball, among others. 

A carefully preserved slice of L.A. history

Greystone Mansion is a remarkable feat of architecture, and most of its original features have been carefully preserved over the years. The property features hand-carved oak banisters, balustrades and rafters, seven chimneys, each designed by a different artist, a movie theater room, a billiard room, a hidden bar, and a two-lane original Brunswick bowling alley. The alley was renovated so that it could be used by the filming crew for There Will Be Blood

There’s a grand hall with distinctive, black-and-white marble floors and a very famous staircase. In fact, the staircase at Greystone Mansion has been featured in numerous productions, due to its majestic appearance. 

Greystone Mansion also included a servant’s quarters that took up two entire floors on the east wing and was built to accommodate a live-in staff of 15.

There was also a living room with a balcony where musicians performed at special events, and a kitchen pantry with a secret wall safe that held the family’s silver and gold kitchenware.

This stunning, stone-clad Beverly Hills mansion continues to attract filming crews, and we’re definitely going to be seeing it again on the big screen. At the same time, its beautiful, lush gardens and its rich history will continue to attract visitors from around the world.

Here’s a further glimpse into the mansion’s history, to keep you occupied until you get a chance to visit in person:
