The movie world is rejoicing because Iron Man 3 opens wide today! Robert Downey Jr’s character Tony Stark may be a super hero, but that’s not all: He also has one of the most super kickass houses in cinema history. It’s pretty amazing- but still, no one can stay in one place forever. What’s he going to do when he wants to pack up his iron suit in a U-Haul and find a new abode? Maybe one that will give him a shorter commute to world-savings. Well don’t worry Tony, we’ve going through the film real estate listings and came up with 10 spots that are almost as cool as your current spread. And we won’t even charge you a brokers fee. Read on and check out the 10 coolest (fictional) houses in movie history!
10. Kid’s Kingdom from Blank Check (1994)Features:
Recently come into some serious cash? Well then this is the ideal home to tell the world: I have S-T-Y-L-E. This castle fit for a king (or queen) boasts a go-kart track, water slide, big screen TVs…Plus a pool with a water-slide, and floating vintage Chevy!
Cost: Hilariously, the kid in the movie buys all this crazy stuff for just $999,675.83. That sounds like a fair offer.
9. See-Through Cabin from The Lake House (2006)Features:
Don’t believe what they say about folks who live in glass houses! The most memorable part of this 2006 snooze-fest offers waterfront views from pretty much anywhere you sit. This is the ideal place to live out all of your greenhouse fantasies. And it’s perfect for exhibitionists! Drapes sold separately.Cost: The 105 minutes it takes to watch The Lake House. Remember, you’ll never get this time back.
8. Apartment 101 Elliott Towers from Frasier (1993-2004)Features:
Technically this is from a TV show and not a movie, but you’ll forgive us when you see how truly awesome Frasier Crane’s 3-bedroom Seattle abode truly is. The living room has hardwood floors with ample space for a baby grand piano AND a full sized harp.
The modernist den nook is perfect for evening soirees/group therapy sessions.
And of course there are full picture windows overlooking the balcony, with full views of the Space Needle, and…well, rain.
Cost: For just $1.2 million, you’ll get the apartment, and we’ll throw in the true meaning of Frasier‘s cryptic “Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs” theme.
