We may have seen them a dozen times, but somehow holiday classics never cease to get us in the festive spirit. Truth be told, we even get a little nostalgic as we relive the familiar story with these fictional families. In each of the films, the importance of home plays a central role. So we searched the Coldwell Banker network to find homes reminiscent of the ones that star in these classic tales. Take a peak.
Miracle on 34th Street
We’re all familiar with the classic film that stars Natalie Wood as the precocious little girl who doesn’t believe in Santa Claus. And while Susan Walker asked Santa for a charming Cape Cod home in Long Island, we think this gorgeous Hamptons style estate located on one of Malibu’s most coveted streets would fit the bill. The expansive grounds include 5 bedroom, 5 baths, two guest houses, tennis court, spacious backyard, and gardens…maybe we should asked Santa for a house this year.
6763 Zumirez Drive
Malibu, CA 90265
Complete with brick façade, covered porch, and classic features, this traditional mansion certainly draws many parallels to the McCallister’s Georgian style home in Chicago’s North Shore suburbs—minus the snow of course. Oh no is that Kevin in the second-story window.
12733 W Sunset
Los Angeles, CA 90049
We can just imagine Clark Griswold’s over-the-top holiday decorations adoring this traditional Brentwood manor. A rare double lot with 6 bedrooms and 10 baths, there’s plenty of room for the entire family to peacefully enjoy the holidays. Don’t worry Clark, this home comes equip with fabulous pool—no Christmas bonus or daydreaming required.
137 N Woodburn Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90049
Instead of traveling across to the Pond to Iris’ quaint country cottage, Amanda could have just driven about an hour down the 405 to charming Balboa Island. This beachside retreat is the perfect place to cozy up by the fire with a good book and escape the holiday madness.
224 Amethyst Avenue
Newport Beach, CA 92662
The Santa Clause
With incomparable grandeur and palatial elegance, this magnificent residence was built for grand scale living, entertaining, and toy building? With a little help from his elves we’re sure this impressive foyer could be transformed into Scott Calvin/Santa’s Claus’ West Coast operations site. Forget the snow globe Charlie, now you can just hop on a plane to visit your dad.
