The Fox television show The Simpsons is one of the longest running shows on the air, and the family’s house on 742 Evergreen Terrace is an iconic location.
The family’s home was purchased by main character Homer J. Simpson after his father Abraham J. Simpson II sold his own house and wrote his son a check for $15,000, allowing him to make the down payment on the house.
To the left of the Simpsons’ fictional abode is 744 Evergreen Terrace, the dwelling place of neighbor Ned Flanders and his family.
The home is two stories tall with an arched front door welcome guests into the foyer, according to a fictional real estate listing from Garretts Real Estate Group as shared with Newsweek recently.
The listing goes on to further describe the house while appraising it at a surprisingly high number, especially considering the incredible amount of damage that has been done throughout the show’s history (ranging from a slanted foundation like the leaning tower of Pisa to bathtub gin explosions and everything in between).
“To the left is a cozy sitting room with a bay window, and to the right, is the dining room that also features a nice bay window.
“Towards the back of the home, is the living room and kitchen.”
The Estimated Value of the Simpsons’ House on Today’s Market
According to the estimate, Homer and Marge could net a surprisingly large profit if they were to put their house on the market today: $449,000, according to the Real Estate Group.
Additional amenities include a wooden picket backyard fence, a low box hedge, a patio and a custom treehouse, among others.
The $449,000 figure is perhaps bolstered by location attractions, including the Springfield Wax Museum and the Springfield Knowledgeum.
The house was influenced by similar size homes in Springfield, Oregon according to an AV Club article, one of series creator Matt Groening’s early inspirations for the town.
Altogether, the home is being described as a four-bedroom, 2.5 bath, 2,200 square-foot dream home, which really makes you wonder why the Simpsons family is portrayed as such a hopelessly downtrodden group of individuals throughout the series.
Perhaps even more surprising than the actual house’s $449,000 price tag is the sticker shock on the Lego brand Simpsons house: $549.00 according to Amazon.com, including a pink Simpsons family sedan, Lego figures of Marge, Lisa, Bart, Maggie, Ned Flanders, and even a figure of Homer carrying a briefcase for some odd reason.
