In my last blog I told you about the television show
Downton Abbey which airs on PBS on Sunday evenings. I mentioned that the real “star” of the show is Highclere Castle which is over four hundred years old and sits seventy miles west of London. Then, I found an ariticle in an old Traditional Home magazine that described readers’ favorite homes from movies. Here are the homes that made the readers’ cut in 2009:
1. Architectural moldings and wood flooring made Meg Ryan’s Manhattan apartment in You’ve Got Mail popular. These images are from Hookedonhouses.net.

#2. Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfeiffer’s Vermont home in What Lies Beneath was liked for romantic touches and the vintage bathroom and gardens. I did not see this movie and I had a difficult time finding images. I believe that it must have been a very “dark” movie. But, the house was terrific.
#3. Many readers of Traditional Home were fond of the Connecticut house that Susan Sarandon occupied in Stepom.
#4. The Long Island Colonial of Blythe Danner and Robert De Niro in Meet the Parents appealed to many people. While I could not find any photos that were actually from the movie, I did learn that the actual house was for sale. Here are photos from the real estate listing. The house is in Old Brookville, New York and had been redecorated.
#5. The Big Chill house
The actual house stood in Beaufort, South Carolina. The sound track from that movie was really great!
