For over two decades, HGTV’s “House Hunters” has provided soothing entertainment for millions of viewers.
Thanks to the show’s easy-to-follow format, we can all judge taste levels and budget concerns safely from the comfort of our couch. We’ve watched marriages get tested over garage size and tried to do the math on how people with seemingly low-paying gigs can afford half-million-dollar properties.
It’s turned us all into real estate voyeurs and made us overnight experts on the value of square footage in just about every major metropolitan area. And with over 1,700 episodes in the can, the show has covered almost every corner of the country.
We’ve spotted six homes on the market that have been featured on “House Hunters.” While we don’t remember all of their TV debuts, we’re presenting them here in hopes of jogging your memory about these homes that enjoyed their 15 minutes of fame.
Scroll on down, and see which of these properties tick the most boxes on your own personal wish list.
Desert modern: Just a few minutes from downtown, this three-bedroom ranch was built in 1961. It’s been updated over the years while maintaining its midcentury vibes. Each room comes with access to a private courtyard, and there’s an attached casita with kitchenette and private entrance. Property records show the home has changed hands several times over the years. In fact, the current seller has owned the place for only six months.
Classic Colonial: This home covers most of the standard “Home Hunters” wish-list items. It’s move-in ready. It’s just minutes to the metro. There’s a lovely outdoor space for playing and entertaining. Built in 1945, it’s now beautifully appointed with modern fixtures and finishes. We’re in love with the soothing and beautiful hand-painted mural in the home office.
Luxe living: Just completed in 2016, this 7,500-square-foot home sits on 4 acres at the end of a cul-de-sac. The four-bedroom residence is loaded with amenities and upgrades like Italian travertine, custom built-ins, and an ultraprivate master suite. Outside, there’s a saltwater pool, walking trails, and, most notably, a 50-yard shooting range.
Pool paradise: According to the listing, this beauty from 1989 was recently filmed for an upcoming “House Hunters” episode. It’s close to beaches, boating, shopping, and dining options. Highlights of the four-bedroom home include high ceilings, a new custom kitchen, and a delightful patio, pool, and hot tub out back.
Charming Craftsman: As if the wraparound porch and hardwood floors weren’t enough to make this stylish house a must-see, here’s the best part: It’s within walking distance to both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods stores. With four bed rooms, 1,900 square feet of living space, and the option to split the home into two separate residences, this stylish address has a lot to love.
Denver delight: Just filmed for a recent season of “House Hunters,” this 3,000-square-foot house was originally built in 1954. The three-bedroom residence has oak hardwood floors, high-end appliances, plus a finished basement with bar, bedroom, bathroom, and separate kitchen. Outside, a steel-front security fence keeps kids and pets safe while playing in the yard.
