‘Modern Family’ home to hit market for $2.35 million
The home of Phil and Claire Dunphy from the hit ABC sitcom 'Modern family' will soon be up for sale at $2.35 million, according to some news sources.
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the single-family residence located in Cheviot Hills of Los Angeles is up for grabs.
Paul Chiames, the owner of the house purchased the place in 2006 for $1.97 million. He told the Journal that most of the shooting takes place outside the house. For the interior shots, a replica of the home's layout is used in a studio. Apparently, Chiames gets paid for each shoot. However, he has decided to sell and relocate for a better career opportunity.
According to the listing records, the residence is a 2683-square-foot, single-story home, sitting on a 6393 square-foot lot. Comprising of four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the home has large doors and windows with dark hardwood flooring and drywall ceilings.
The home appeared in a 2012 Architectural Digest feature, where production designer Richard Berg gives a detailed account on some of the featured rooms of the house. He describes the Dunphys' home as, "Pottery Barn meets Restoration Hardware."
""the secret sauce" in the Dunphy residence is the stripes, including the upholstery on the armchair in the living room. The stripes and splashes of bright color enliven what could otherwise be a pretty humdrum space," Berg says talking about the great room of the residence.
The dining room and fireplace are also shown in the feature. Check out the photos, here.
A formal living room is also there but most of the action takes place in the great room and the kitchen in the Dunphy house.
"The kitchen is now truly the center of the house. We couldn't do a show called 'Modern Family' if we didn't see the kitchen as part of the dining and family room in one flowing space," Steve Levitan, creator of the series told the Los Angeles Times.
