HGTV Announces a Contest for a Chance to Win a Stay at the 'Brady Bunch' House
It's 'A Very Brady Contest', and one lucky winner will get the chance to "live like a Brady" with a six-night stay at the iconic Brady Bunch house -- now completely restored to its Brady-authentic original 1970s glory -- and a $25,000 cash prize. Details inside!

Looking for a different sort of Airbnb vacation? How about a six-day stay, with up to six friends, in the actual Brady Bunch house – now completely renovated to replicate the original layout and design seen in the vintage-classic TV series. That’s precisely what HGTV is giving away as the grand prize in its latest viewer challenge, ‘A Very Brady Contest’ – a competition/sweepstakes companion to the special HGTV limited TV series, A Very Brady Renovation.
As you’ve likely heard, HGTV purchased the Brady Bunch house (actually located in the LA suburb, Studio City) in 2018, and since then has busily been retooling the interior spaces to faithfully mimic the home seen in the classic ‘60s/70s TV series. It’s all being done with help from HGTV hosts and designers like Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott, Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine of Good Bones, Leanne and Steve Ford of Restored by the Fords, Jasmine Roth of Hidden Potential and Lara Spencer of Flea Market Flip. What’s more, the original Brady siblings -- Barry Williams (Greg), Maureen McCormick (Marcia), Christopher Knight (Peter), Eve Plumb (Jan), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) – have reunited for the first time in almost 15 years to be a part of this amazing renovation and celebration. It’s all being documented for the upcoming on-air series as well as multiple exclusive digital series, periodic updates and photo galleries. Fans can follow all the progress and hoopla at HGTV.com/Brady.

About the Series
The HGTV series A Very Brady Renovation will premiere in September 2019 and feature an in-depth look at full-scale overhaul of the Brady Bunch house. Exterior shots of that real Los Angeles home were often used to establish a sense of time and place for the Brady family. HGTV executed a show-stopping transformation of the home by adding 2,000 square feet to its original footprint—all without compromising its instantly recognizable street view. It also renovated and replicated the Brady Bunch house to include the iconic floating staircase, the orange-and-green kitchen, Greg’s attic, the kids Jack-n-Jill bathroom and many more memorable spaces. HGTV is celebrating the house that will forever hold a special place in television history and American popular culture.
