As fans mourn the loss of Mary Tyler Moore, one lucky fan might have the chance to own the actual home where her beloved TV character lived in The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
The 9,500-square-foot Victorian mansion was only used for the show’s exterior shots, while the interiors were filmed in a Hollywood studio, but fans will fondly remember Moore’s character living on the third floor in the home’s turret (it’s actually an office). Despite the fictional Mary Richards never setting foot in the seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom mansion, Mary Tyler Moore did visit the home back in 1996.
Built in 1900, the spacious mansion was renovated to include a chef’s kitchen, with four ovens and granite island; five fireplaces; two laundry rooms; and a cozy family room, which opens up to a backyard and terrace. The upper levels feature bedroom suites; with the master bedroom boasting a sitting room, walk-in closet, and spa-style bath with separate shower and tub. Complementing the mansion’s contemporary renovations are vintage touches like ornate woodwork, glass transom accents, and bay windows.
Located on the corner of two quiet, tree-lined streets in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the home is currently on the market for $1.695 million. Its listing agents are Barry Berg and Chad Larsen of the Berg Larsen Group of Coldwell Banker Burnet.
