Five Listed Alternatives to Winter's Favorite TV Show Houses

With most primetime TV shows awakened from the midseason slumber, now seems an apt time to explore their real estate—or at least properties that resemble their real estate. After all, except for the spooky old house from American Horror Story most actual sets are not actually on the market. Take the sprawling shingle-style estate of Madeleine Stowe's Victoria Grayson in the ABC hit Revenge. It may be located in Wilmington, N.C., quite a ways away from East Hampton, N.Y., where the show takes place, but it's also decidedly not for sale. Yet lovers of the show who happen to have a cool $30M lying around can invest in their own version of Grayson Manor with the Southampton place above, which has trappings befitting of any evil-eyed socialite: gambrels galore, 10 fireplaces, imported French fireplace mantels, hand-painted walls, a staff apartment, a custom wine cellar with a vaulted ceiling, and a tennis court, all over 13,400 square feet of regal interiors.

? The NBC comedy New Girl chronicles the escapades of Zooey Deschanel's Jess, who finds solace from a breakup in a Los Angeles loft occupied by a bunch of guys. The space has what you'd expect, from the exposed brick to the commercial-style bathroom to the basketball hoop. Channeling a similar vibe on a much swankier scale is a new-to-market quadruplex penthouse loft in the Los Angeles Arts District. The two-bedroom, 4,300-square-foot unit, which boasts its own elevator, was once leased by Nicolas Cage and now belongs to fellow actor Vincent Gallo, who's asking $2.599.

? Musically inclined Glee primarily takes place within the hallways of the fictional William McKinley High School, supposedly located in Lima, Ohio. Yet thanks to the celebrity-stalking ways of the location-scout blogger I Am Not a Stalker, the world now knows that the home of Kristen Chenowith's high school dropout April Rhodes is actually located in Encino, Calif. Something that appears very similar: this 1953 Encino Mediterranean with four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms over 4,600 square feet. It's been listed for some four months and asks $1.775M.

? While the exact location of Christina Applegate's Reagan and Will Arnett's Chris in the new NBC comedy Up All Night isn't apparent, the show hints at the San Francisco Bay Area with references to both Oakland and Catalina. From the looks of things, the young parents reside in a ranch with strong midcentury influences: large expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass, a large, tiled fireplace, stone walls, and beamed ceilings. This three-bedroom house, built in 1963 in San Francisco's Diamond Heights neighborhood, sports the same kind of feel, with original cabinetry in the kitchens and baths, nostalgic light fixtures, and board-and-batten siding. The property has most recently been listed for $1M but seems to have just gone into contract.

? Perched on a prime Central Park block of Manhattan's Upper East Side, this duplex befits any true fan of the PBS hit Downton Abbey. It may be far from North Yorkshire, but it does have a staff apartment, complete with its own living room and kitchenette, not to mention five staff bedrooms on the second floor. The cost of living this butlered lifestyle: $27.5M. Head to Curbed NY for four additional Downton-worthy apartments.
