Movie magic means no one lives inside a basic house. From the dreamy Italian villa in Under the Tuscan Sun to the classic Colonial Revival in Father of the Bride, these are the famous sets that make us want to house hunt in Hollywood.
Not only can we thank this plantation-style home for reuniting Noah and Allie, but we don't think it's a stretch to say it's one of the most memorable homes from any movie — ever. And that's sayin' something.
It's easy to see why Cameron Diaz's Los Angeles-based character wanted to escape to this British cottage for Christmas. The two chimneys fill our own dreams of living there with warm, crackling firewood and endless mugs of hot chocolate.
As for Kate Winslet's character, a sunny California mansion was her dream retreat. We love that the modern abode has a stylish Spanish touch and boasts bright flowers across the extravagant balcony.
Hey, there's a reason a couple of thieves were interested in breaking into this home in the first place: It's gorgeous. Little did they know what awaited them inside.
When a movie is named after a home, you know it's going to be memorable. This one is made almost entirely out of glass and is where both Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves' characters lived during this film.
Nothing compares to the beauty of a Hampton's beach house, and this one, which served as the shared home for Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson in this romantic comedy, is no exception. No wonder the two characters fell in love while living here.
In this movie, the beach house serves as Diane Lane's character's North Carolina inn — and talk about prime real estate! The blue shutter-covered home is located right on the sand and, during high tide, even in the water.
There's a reason this famous home is so unbelievably beautiful: It was actually built for the movie — and has sadly been torn down since. Fingers crossed the iconic swing is still hanging.
Even though Ferris' home was all-American, it was Cameron's that left a lasting impression. The super modern design and glass walls make it one-of-a-kind (and let's not forget the iconic car inside).
To some people, this adorable home embodies everything that is Christmas. And it's easy to see why: The quaint yellow exterior, the magical dusting of snow and the Taxi cab (implying visitors!) are all picturesque.
When Sandra Bullock's character visits her assistant's home in Alaska, she didn't expect to find a lakeside mansion nestled in nature. Let's just say, that was the first of many surprises she would discover during her visit.
When Diane Lane's character impulsively buys a villa in Tuscany, she inherits both a life-changing experience and a stunning abode. Seriously, can we talk about the ivy growing around the door?
If you loved the white house from The Notebook, you'll adore the bungalow from The Choice, another movie adapted from a novel. This one tones down the grandness and is all about the charm.
This Second Empire Victorian home was where Judy Garland's character, Esther Smith, lived with her family. Inside, the beautiful staircase and elaborate decor tends to steal the show (but we don't mind!).
Even though Cher's modern home was fabulous, it was her best friend Dionne's (which only makes a split-second cameo) that feels like the one that got away. Even the walkway to the front door is over the top.
There's something about the incline of the San Francisco street that makes this home totally unforgettable. Oh, and the fact that Robin Williams' character pretended to be the family housekeeper inside of it doesn't hurt either.
Even though Annie's London home was lovely, it was Hallie's California abode that tickled our jealous bone. After all, it's hard to beat a Spanish-influenced design that comes with a pool and a vineyard.
We'll admit that half of the beauty of this movie's home is the result of the over-the-top Christmas lights. But there's also something so family-friendly about the interior that reminds us of our own homes.
What else would you expect from the most popular girl in school? Everything about this elaborate mansion screamed "expensive," from the columns to the brick to the pricy convertible parked out front.
This houseboat was simple but made quite the statement. To make matters even better, a young, hunky Tom Hanks spent many scenes brooding and contemplating life out front. Sigh.
The writer and director of this movie, Nancy Meyers, is known for her gorgeous sets — and this one's no exception. You'll want to watch this rom-com just to ooh and ahh over the kitchen.
This is simple, yet stunning — no wonder it served as the wedding venue in the film. We remember the famous driveway and basketball hoop more than anything else.
What do Cary Grant and Grace Kelly have in common with this mansion? Major beauty. Rumor has it Kelly fell in love with this during filming — and we don't blame her.
Very few movie homes are as famous as the where Tara lives in this classic film. Sadly, the house was just a facade for filming and doesn't really exist in real life (what a shame!).
It makes sense that Doc's house would be a tad over the top (hey, it fits his personality). Even though this home was a looker, we have to argue that the garage was the real star.
No movie home comes close to the castle Leonardo Dicaprio's character lived in and threw lavish parties from in this movie adaptation of the famous novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Amy Dunne sure had her faults, but the Missouri home where she lived with Nick was classic and quite striking from the exterior.
This abode definitely has a creep factor to it, but it's striking in a way that design aficionados can't help but appreciate.
All of the southern homes in this film were memorable, but we have to call out Celia Foot's plantation as the most stunning of the bunch. Don't you wish you were sitting on that porch with a lemonade right now?
That yellow exterior! That water fountain! That backyard gazebo! Our list could go on and on about why this home is unlike any other — and we haven't even touched on the gorgeous interiors yet.
