All of the greatest fictional characters from television, cinema and literature have certain defining features which cement their image. These things can include an outfit, a particular mode of transport, a weapon or even a home. Take Batman as a classic example. The Dark Knight not only has a name defining suit, he has the Batmobile and Wayne Manor, all things which are fundamentally iconic and important to the character.
Homes, in particular, can be really important in defining a character. Take a look at this list on Homeaway which includes the iconic Great Gatsby mansion and 221B Baker Street, the home of one of the greatest fictional character of all time, Sherlock Holmes.
Affording Fictional Homes
Fictional characters and their homes also offer us a certain amount of escapism as they usually live in pretty spectacular buildings or locations. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to live in the charming Bag End (height permitting) or the rock star pad of Tony Stark’s Malibu Mansion? Although, if we are seriously considering what it would be like to live in these amazing locations, it’s worth considering the more practical elements of it. We all know Tony Stark would have no worries paying the mortgage on this staggering home, after all, he is a genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist, but that isn’t the case for all of us.
