Fifteen Really Cool Houses In Movies

Published by at 8:00 am under Lists,Movies

While I don’t think that scenery and extra props are entirely important to a movie, they can definitely make a movie a bit cooler.   And I’m not knocking aesthetics.  In fact, I’m praising them.  I’m just pointing out that the story and the acting should usually be the focal point of a film.

However that doesn’t mean we can’t or shouldn’t get caught up in the beauty or the bad assness of some of the scenery.

In that light, here are 15 awesome houses in movies…..

Thanks to Listal for the idea and some of these pictures.

Pride and Prejudice

It’s definitely a little scary at times because of the sheer size but imagine growing up in that.

Funny People

Remember how awesome Sandler’s house was in this movie?  I particularly remember the pool.

Pyscho

This might not have been the most ideal house to grow up in but it sure as hell was badass in the movies.

X-Men

From the exterior it merely looks like a normal really rich person’s mansion.  But we all know the capabilities on the inside.

The Vampire Diaries


I could have gone with Twilight here but this place is way cooler than the Cullen’s.

Sleeper

Who would have thought that a movie from 1973 would have a house this cool?  Hmm.

Iron Man

Probably the coolest technological house in movie history.  At least so far.

Edward Scissorhands


This is right up there with Norman Bates’ house.

Chloe

I’ll be honest.   I didn’t even know this movie existed but this house is pretty awesome.

Charlie’s Angels:  Full Throttle

Possibly the only redeeming thing about this movie.

Scarface

If you’re gonna be a drug lord you might as well live in style.

The Addams Family

This is another one of those houses where there’s more than meets the eye.

Billy Madison

Sandler’s up here twice!

Meet Joe Black

This has got to be one one of if not the coolest house in all of New York City.

Weekend at Bernie’s

This was the ultimate 80s beach house.

*There are obviously tons more but we tend to like these quite a bit.

    Wasn’t that Charlies Angels house also in the Big Lebowski?

  • Kristoph

    Cullens house is better :)

  • carx

    Cameron’s house from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

  • hank

    So is the first one Casino Royale or not…

    Also, the Charlie’s Angels one looks a lot like that one guy’s pad from The Big Lebowski.

    I was just going to point that out Gdawg. That’s Jackie Treehorn’s house. Funny thing is, I recently talked to the current owner of the house and he had no idea it was in Charlie’s Angels. He’s just not a media geek, I guess.

    I liked Bruce Wayne’s house…from like any of the Batman movies.

    Good call on Billy Madison!

    While googling more about this I discovered that Professor Xavier’s mansion is Hatley Castle in Victoria, BC which is also the Luthor mansion in Smallville. And a bunch of the interior and other mansion shots for X-men were filmed at Parkwood estate in Oshawa, Ontario which was Billy Madison’s mansion.

    @carx

    The Ferris Bueller mansion which is outside Chicago is actually for sale right now for $1.65 million. Random interesting fact: The car in the movie, a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California is worth over $10 million.

    @ hank – that’s what I was thinking. It also looks like the house from The Talented Mr. Ripley, but I may be wrong.

  • Steve

    Was gonna say the Keaton Wayne Mansion, but it was different in “Returns”. The house that was Wayne Manor in the first film was the vampire’s lair in the first Underworld movie. In ‘Returns” I think it was just a painting. For Batman Forever and Batman and Robin it became the same mansion from X-men/Billy Madison/Cruel Intentions, etc…

    Anyone know what mansion that is? I wonder if the inside looks anything like any of the movies it’s used in. Billy Madison’s house on the inside was not what the inside of Wayne manor or Xavier’s school for the gifted looked like after all.

    @Hank & Bert:
    That’s definetly Villa Balbianello at the edge of Lake Como in Italy. Been there a few years ago, it’s open for public. VERY cool to see the spots where they filmed some scenes of Casino Royale, as wel as the lake scenes from Attack of the Clones.

  • Jon

    what about the house from Thirteen Ghosts??

  • blckmgk

    True story. I got married at the X-Men mansion. It’s actually Hatley Castle in Victoria, BC, Canada.

    Tim Allen’s in Galaxy Quest.

  • Guy Incognito

    @Steve:
    Read my comment above yours where I answered your question before you even asked…

  • Brian

    The house from Practical Magic was always my favorite.
