Mary Tyler Moore was one of the most iconic women to grace the small screen. Now, just a month past her death at the age of 80, her fictional television home is on the market. The famous bachelorette pad from The Mary Tyler Moore Show comes with a listing price of $1.7 million.
The home is a lovely Victorian mansion with 9,500 square feet of living space. It offers the homeowner, seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
It offers plenty of room for entertaining and has a huge kitchen island to enjoy. The kitchen also has beautifully upgraded appliances, including a double oven and microwave combination.
Probably the most spectacular part of the home is the ornate woodwork and beautiful floors throughout.
The home even has a fabulous sauna and plenty of places to relax.
The 1900s era house became famous when producers of The Mary Tyler Moore Show used it for outdoor shots. Moore, who played an ambitious single 30-year-old career woman on the show, also rented an upstairs apartment in the home.
While producers filmed indoor shots elsewhere, this didn’t stop fans from flocking to the home in droves. Long after the show aired its final episode, about 30 tour buses a day drove by the home. Per the Norwalk Reflector, fans also boldly knocked on the door looking for Mary.
Eventually, the publicity began to bother the woman living in the home. To stop all the traffic, she decided to hang political signs in the window fans believed to belong to Mary. Unfortunately, the signs didn’t deter visitors and traffic continued. To help with the traffic problem, Mary’s character ultimately moved into a high-rise apartment in the city.
Now, the beautiful home is back on the market and looking for a new owner. Originally, the owners listed the home for $2.895 million, but have since reduced the asking price. It’s a steal for a piece of true television history!
