HGTV buys home featured in ‘The Brady Bunch’

(WHDH) — Lance Bass thought he had bought the home featured in the “The Brady Bunch” but HGTV later emerged as the winning bidder.

The former member of ‘N Sync believed his offer on the house from the 1970s series was the winning one. He later learned his offer had been rejected for a more lucrative bid from an unidentified corporate buyer.

It was revealed on Tuesday that HGTV is the new owner of the North Hollywood, California, home.

David Zaslav, the chief executive officer of HGTV’s parent company, ‘Discovery’, made the announcement during the company’s second-quarter earnings call.

Zaslav says they plan to restore the home to its glory as only HGTV can.

“We’ll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history,” he said.

The home was listed for $1.885 million. The final sale price has not been announced.

The two-bedroom, three-bathroom split-level home was purchased in 1973 for $61,000.
