One of America’s most iconic TV homes is finding its way back into the spotlight. After a heated bid war—just ask Lance Bass!—HGTV snagged the rights to use the house featured in the classic ’70s sitcom, The Brady Bunch.
Discovery CEO David Zaslav announced Tuesday that the cable network was the winning bidder for the famous home. The house was officially put on the market this week, and instantly sparked a lot of interest from potential bidders. One in particular being former *NSYNC boy bander, Lance Bass.
No hard feelings though. Once Bass discovered that everyone’s favorite home improvement network was the lucky winner, he let bygones be bygones.
HGTV??! Aw man. I’d be pretty upset if it were anyone else, but how can you be mad at HGTV?? My television is stuck on that channel. Kudos HGTV, I know you will do the right thing with the house. That was always my biggest worry. I can smile again. 😁

The famous three bedroom, three bathroom house was used for exterior shots in the sitcom, and is located at 11222 Dilling St. in North Hollywood. According to the property’s description on Zillow, it sits on a space of more than 12,500 square feet.
According to CNN, it’s been 50 years since the house was up for sale. HGTV’s purchase of the retro home leaves many to wonder if the Brady’s will somehow be making a comeback.
“I’m excited to share that HGTV is the winning bidder and will restore the Brady Bunch home to its 1970s glory as only HGTV can. More detail to come over the next few months but we’ll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories about this beloved piece of American TV history,” says Zaslav.
For now, we’ll wait for more details to surface, but we have faith that HGTV won’t let us down.
