If the home pictured above looks familiar, that’s because it served as inspiration for one of the most acclaimed television shows in American history: The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, this exceptional property is currently listed for sale by Barry Berg & Chad Larsen with Coldwell Banker Burnet.
While the Mary Tyler Moore Show was, in fact, filmed on a sound stage, the outside of this home was featured in many of the show’s scenes. We asked the listing agents to dish some of the fun facts of this $1,695,000 listing. Here’s what we learned:
- Aside from the triple third floor windows, very little resembles the MTM set which had its entrance in the opposite corner and kitchen where the fireplace is located. Here’s what the floorplan looked like, according to the show:
- In reality, there are only three stories, whereas Mary’s friend Rhoda lived ‘upstairs’ in the turret. The turret is actually the third level office with sitting room (not pictured)
- Acclaimed actress Mary Tyler Moore first set foot in the inspiration for fictitious “119 North Weatherly” in 1996 — over twenty five years after the series premier (1970-77)
The house itself has been extensively renovated and is perfect for families who love to entertain, thanks to the open floor plan and updated features.
