The Nine Homes of Christmas

Pricing Out Christmas Houses from Favourite Movies

As the wine mulls, the mistletoes wait for lovers, and the halls are decked with boughs of holly, many fall into the chaos of a materialistic Christmas season. One of the best ways to unwind and get into the holiday spirit is to watch classic Christmas movies with friends and family. But how much would these Christmas film houses go for in the current market?

Merry Xmas

About A Boy

Kentish Town, London

Property Value: £925,000

The two bedroom Kentish Town apartment belonging to Marcus and his mother has a price tag of £925,000. This area has gone through extensive gentrification since the filming and would have cost significantly less in 2002.

Property Value: £1.5 million

Hugh Grant’s central London flat in EC1 could range drastically in price today from £1.5M depending on size and amenities.

Home Alone

Chicago, USA

Property Value: £1,571,521

The most iconic Christmas home is without a doubt Kevin McAllister’s self-secured Chicago mansion. It is big enough for both a ten-year child and a family of seven. Although it is not currently on the market, the cost is estimated at £1,571,521 – keep the change ya filthy animal!

Die Hard

Los Angeles, USA

Property Value: £3,000,079

In a more urban setting, Nakatomi Towers in central Los Angeles is a luxurious alternative for both Christmas and Die Hard fans. A two bedroom flat looking out on the glowing city lights has a price tag of £3,000,079.

Love Actually

Wandsworth, London

Property Value: £1,100,000

A terraced home in the “dodgy” part of Wandsworth is the location of holiday favourite Love Actually. Although the actual house used is in Herne Hill, a similar property in Wandsworth costs £1,100,000. It is shown in the scene where the Prime Minister shows up to spread love before attending the Christmas concert at the local school. House prices have sky-rocketed in London in recent years, so the average house price in the area in 2003 when the film was released was just £255,024.

Santa’s House

North Pole

Property Value: £2.7 million

Any list showing Christmas homes is not complete without Santa’s Scandinavian-style farm in the North Pole. This fabulous home goes for an impressive £2.7M, but it not likely to go on the market in the near future since it has stayed in the Claus family for generations. The property includes eight fire places, twelve bedrooms, two kitchens, a separate workshop and a barn to house the reindeer.

The Grinch Cave

Whoville

Property Value: £1.3 million

A Grinch’s cave with a view has an asking price of a mere £1.3M. This rustic property is close to some exceptional hikes and is only a short walk to the village where there are restaurants, shops and excessive festive cheer. This is an exquisite spot for Christmas lovers because of the markets and carolers almost all year around.

The Holiday

Shere, Surrey

Property Value: £725,000

For those who like to be closer to ground zero, a romantic cottage in Shere is the perfect getaway from big city. A property similar to Kate Winslet’s charming home in Surrey goes for £725,000 – the price does not include Jude Law.

The Snowman

Chichester, West Sussex

Property Value: £850,000

Further south in the English countryside is the fictitious setting of the Snowman. The rural Sussex setting of a four-bedroom home with a garden where the famous snowman was built has a £850,000 price tag.

With the Christmas season in full swing, it is always nice to get into the spirit to relax and watch Christmas films. It acts as a great way to spend time with family.

Since it is a family based holiday mostly set in the home, it is fitting to look at property prices from the favourite movies of the season.
