Here’s Skeeter’s House!
Skeeter’s House from The Help movie is a grand Prairie Style historic home. They filmed all the interior scenes for Skeeter’s House from inside this small stately home. I am excited to see Skeeter’s house for sale because I did a movie post on all the ladies houses from The Help movie ; Hilly Holbrook’s House, Elizabeth Leefolt’s, Celia Foote’s house, and of course Skeeter Phelan’s.
The house is at 613 River Rd in Greenwood, Mississippi and is on the market for $240,000. Not a bad price tag for a famous movie/historic home.
The listing says the house resides within the “Greenwood Historic District and is perhaps one of their finest examples of Prairie Style.”
Skeeter’s House from the Help movie is circa 1910. Five bedrooms and three baths. The home has a throwback street entrance like you’re walking back in time and a big shady wraparound porch.
I love wide wraparound porches big enough for a party.
A nice front door with beautiful glass side panels.
The Help movie has the glass side panels covered with white curtains in this scene with Skeeter Phelan played by Emma Stone.
INSIDE SKEETER’S HOUSE, THE GRAND STAIRCASE PLAYED A BIG ROLE IN THE MOVIE
The Help movie scenes:
I had no idea the light up figure on the stairway column in the movie was actually a statue of a lady with lights. She looks a lot bigger in the actual Skeeter House.
Charlotte Phelan played by Allison Janney in a scene featuring the grand stairway landing area.
The upper staircase landing is quite spacious. The scene from The Help movie showing room for a couch, table, lamp and armoire.
EVEN MORE LIVING ROOM AREAS
KITCHEN: The listing for the kitchen says it has a “nostalgic butlers pantry and breakfast room.”
The antique leaded glass windows have their own adornment and let in a lot of light.
This looks like the same corner in the kitchen as just above where the movie staged early 60s Breeze laundry detergent.
BEDROOMS: We get a look at one of the five bedrooms that has this cute blue fireplace.
BATHROOM: One of the three bathrooms.
Here’s Skeeter’s Mom sitting at her dressing table that fits perfectly with this bedroom it makes me wonder if it’s an original piece of furniture in the real house OR a stage piece for the movie set. Either way, we can see she is sitting in the real house in Greenwood, MS.
The house has been on the market for a few months. Since it’s in the Historic District it likely has to be maintained in its original state. The grand historic style bed likely doesn’t come with the sale of the house but is a perfect fit for the bedroom decor.
