Kicker: Buying the Brady Bunch house

MEGAN BASHAM, HOST: Let’s say you’re looking for a house in the Los Angeles area. More to the point, looking for a charming split-level that just hit the market.

I’m guessing you’ve probably seen this one before.

AUDIO: Oh, say! This is a beautiful room, Mrs. Brady.

Thanks. I’m afraid we’re really gonna miss it.

What about this house? Have you talked it over?

Yeah. We’re ready to sell, Bert.

But fair warning, it might be a bit cozy for a big family.

AUDIO: There are six kids and two bedrooms!

Right, Mrs. Brady. Just two bedrooms in this 2,500 square foot home.

What it lacks in rooms, though, the Brady Bunch house more than makes up in 1970s charm.

It’s been carefully renovated to preserve the home as what the listing calls “a perfect postcard of American ’70s style.”

And it can be yours for the groovy price of $1.9 million dollars.

AUDIO: Property values have gone up so much, no problem!
