You Too Could Live in the Young Sheldon House — But it Ain’t in Texas
The Young Sheldon House, where wee Master Cooper often chats with his Mee-Maw, is actually located in So Cal’s Valley Village, and is on the market for $1,185,000.
On the popular sitcom Young Sheldon, this quaint ranch house stands in as the humble Texas home of Sheldon Cooper’s family.
In reality, it’s a long way from the Lone Star State—the home built in 1949 is located in a Los Angeles suburb very near and dear to my heart, Valley Village. The completely renovated, classic Mellenthin ranch is currently on the market for $1,185,000.
The Studio City/Valley Village area is notable because homes can ably serve as TV and movie stand-ins for a variety of locales—even Texas. Paul Thomas Anderson’s Magnolia? Yep, it’s actually about Magnolia Blvd., and almost the entire thing was here shot in the area, near the same streets where the talented director grew up.
Another prominent Hollywood house just about a mile from the three-bedroom, three-bath, 1,746-square-foot Young Sheldon House — the famous Brady Bunch House which was also used for exterior establishing shots for the iconic ’70s show.
And although they show the exterior of the Young Sheldon House, producers continue to use the spot to film characters on the lawn, the porch and the driveway. In fact, they shot on site a couple of days in August. This means as long as the show is running, this place will provide a source of income for the owners. Bonus!
And CBS isn’t the only network where you’ll see the Young Sheldon House.
The whole thing — including the interior — will be featured on an episode of the CNBC reality series “Listing Impossible.” The show will feature luxury real estate agent Aaron Kirman and his team offering a plan to help the homeowners sell this place.
The plan in the case of this one involved a complete interior renovation from top to bottom. Thankfully for Sheldon, the home’s classic exterior was left pretty much intact.
Inside, the original oak hardwood floors have been completely refinished, and the floor plan was opened up to include a dining room and brand-new kitchen. The kitchen now features designer lighting fixtures, quartz countertops, a custom backsplash, new stainless-steel appliances, as well as new custom Shaker cabinets.
Also added? A revamped master suite with a walk-in closet and spa-style bathroom with custom tile, a rain shower, designer vanity, and lighting features. The home’s other two bedrooms and baths have been redone as well.
In addition, the home’s infrastructure also got an extreme makeover. There’s a new roof, new electrical wiring, and a new HVAC system controlled by a Nest.
It’s now quite a bit fancier than anything the Coopers could have conceived living in.
Yawar Charlie with Aaron Kirman Group at Compass has the listing.
