THE MONEY PIT MOVIE HOUSE

The famous iconic Money Pit movie house is on the market.  The real Money Pit movie house is more gorgeous inside than I could have imagined.

It’s exciting news that this mansion called Northway House is for sale.  New readers may not know I have a post about The Money Pit movie house, the film, and this real Money Pit movie house.  It’s a fun post with historical details about the house if you have time to check it out.

The house is in Lattingtown, NY in the Long Island Sound area.  It’s a Federal style home I thought was built in 1906, but the listing dates it further back to 1898.

In the movie Walter and Anne were scammed by a real estate agent to buy it as a million dollar distress sale.  No distress here, the real Money Pit movie house has been extensively renovated!  Shawn Elliot Luxury Homes has the listing.  Some of the impressive details include an imported 500-year-old French fireplace!

It’s on 5.5 acres and the gated entrance leads down a quarter-mile-long rhododendron-lined drive.  The Money Pit comedy came out in 1986 by Steven Spielberg starring Tom Hanks and Shelly Long.

  1. The 2 weeks line always makes me laugh out loud too and even to this day some scenes still make me laugh. OMG Michelle that your Dad was a fixer-upper/house flipper; I love that. You must have a lot of great and not so great home improvement stories to tell.

  2. Oh my gosh! As a kid my dad was always buying houses, fixing them up and then we would move into it. Then he would find another and it would start all over again. So when this movie came out and I saw it for the first time the “it will be 2 weeks” rang true in every way! Why do they always tell you it will take 2 weeks? LOL! I love it and I know this was a while back but I had to come check it out! Thanks for posting. It gave me a smile.

  3. ‘How the one percent lives” – good insight Candy. Since I don’t have the money for this kind of opulence, I like to look.

  4. Thanks Carol, plus I’ve read many times that famous homes from TV or movies always get more money for their home than any normal house.

  5. $12 million is a lot of money, but considering what you get with that gorgeous house and how expensive houses in California are, it is actually reasonably priced. Those stairways are beautiful.
