In case you missed it, the 1998 film “Stepmom,” starring Julia Roberts, Susan Sarandon, and Ed Harris is a classic tearjerker that brings to life the timeless realities of divorce, illness, reconciliation, and love. The movie’s touching exterior scenes were filmed at an iconic and recognizable 19th century New York Victorian that features a romantic wraparound porch and tire swing. The interior Stepmom scenes were filmed on sets closely modeled after many of the real rooms in the house.
Great news for movie buffs who fall in love with fabulous movie homes: We just learned from Hooked on Houses that the picturesque home used in Stepmom has been listed for sale for $3,375,000. The home was built in 1854 and has over 5,000 square feet of character and charm. According to the listing description, there are 8 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, 6 fireplaces, and sweeping views of the Hudson River from every room. High-end details include oak floors, hand-crafted moldings, a meticulously landscaped yard, and a newly renovated bathroom and gourmet kitchen.
For true fans of Stepmom, the listing photos will stir up memories of the iconic scene where Sarandon rips down the canopy bed curtains and dances around with her kids to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.”
If the Victorian looks familiar, but you never saw Stepmom, it may be because it was also used in the more recent movie, “The Bounty Hunter” with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston. In that movie, the home was staged as a Bed & Breakfast called “Cupid’s Cabin.”
