The infamous Brady Bunch house is said to have been sold, but it means bad news for a * NSYNC star. After announcing that he had the winning bid on the evening of August 3, a tweet on Sunday, August 5, confirmed that Lance Bass would eventually not get the house Brady Bunch . And he is understandably inconsolable.
After the LA Times Studio City's two-bedroom, three-bath studio was launched in July for $ 1.885 million. It belongs to the deceased Violet and George McCallister, who were allegedly sold by their children. Though filmed in a Hollywood studio, the exterior of the Studio City House was used for the beginning and end credit Brady Bunchs . And because of its recognizability it is a hot commodity for those who are looking for that piece of nostalgic goodness.
Bass, along with property brother Jonathan Scott, were two of the allegedly many bidders who were interested in buying the property. And according to Bass's social media account, the singer believed he had the winning bid (which was supposed to be well above the asking price), as in his August 3 tweet. In the news to the fans on Friday evening, the entertainer wrote: "Super excited to announce that yesterday they accepted my offer at the # BradyBunch house !!! This is going to be a fun project!"
Confirmed Previous Purchase Interest When the former NSYNC band member needed help to preserve the dream home, real estate enthusiast Scott responded and tweeted, "I'm a little disappointed that you offer me (seriously), as I really do Wanted The House, but I am very excited that you are taking over this project. "
And Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady in the series, congratulated Bass on his big win . . After a later tweet, but soon after he got the good news, Bass's heart was broken when he learned that he finally did not have the winning bet. Instead, he lost the offer to an unnamed corporate client, who was supposed to buy the house "at all costs".
In the tweet on Sunday, August 5, Bass wrote, "Is not a deadline a deadline? This was a dream come true for me and I spent the night celebrating among friends, family and fans."
"I feel needed, but most importantly I'm hurt and saddened by this highly questionable result," Bass continued in the statement. "I just hope it will not be demolished." Bass & # 39; s disappointment is absolutely justified. The Entertainer shared his plans with the fans to redesign the interior and preserve the flair of the 1970s exterior of Twitter. And he even talked to McCormick about being his very first dinner party guest . Such an opportunity to lose must be difficult to overcome.
To be fair, the corporate entity (which Bass suggests was a Hollywood studio) might have plans similar to the entertainer's to preserve the quarters Brady Bunch . Sure, dinner parties and a remodeled, modern interior would probably not be on the radar. But it could have other goals in mind – such as creating an official museum and tourist attraction Brady Bunch or even using the property for filming.
Bass is not the official owner, but as long as the house is not demolished, every single fan of the legendary series wins.
