Often, the homes we see on screen are arguably some of the most breathtaking, but it's easy to wonder what they look like IRL. Surprisingly, many of them are even more spectacular without the Hollywood touchups. Take Noah Calhoun's fixer upper in The Notebook, for instance, or The Brady Bunch house used for exterior shots — see what I mean?
The home in Sharp Objects — the relatively new HBO thriller following Camille Preaker (Amy Adams), a reporter who returns to her hometown to cover a murder — is just another perfect example. Built in 1997, this 7,500-square-foot, Victorian-style mansion boasts five bedrooms and four bathrooms. It's also on a plot of land on East Ranch that spans 1,745 acres in Redwood Valley, California, according to .
While the home's interior is also incredibly impressive, they only filmed exterior shots at the mansion, which is common for movies and TV shows. One look at the views, and you'll see why they picked this spot, if you weren't already convinced.
This includes a gazebo with stunning views, as well as a 4,900-square-foot barn, and an orchard with apples, pears, peaches, and more.
That's right, this is just one of 21 ponds on the land, plus .
You can drive 24 miles without actually leaving the property. Take a closer look at the area, though: Can you also see the redwood grove and archaeological site? It's there!
