While some fictional homes are filmed in back lots and movie studios, a good percentage of the homes we see on the silver screen actually exist IRL. From rom-coms to horrors, the team at Ruby Home conducted a study to find out the most desirable homes in the movie world.

Turns out, the most sought-after home is the Cullen house from “Twilight”. The franchise has been having somewhat of a resurgence on social media since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, so it’s no surprise that the Oregon-based vampire home has taken the number one spot.

Although you can’t currently own the home for yourself—according to Velvet Ropes, Nike designer John Hoke purchased the home for $2.5 million earlier this year—you can rent the Swan residence on Airbnb. Bella’s house is located in Saint Helens, Oregon, and looks exactly like it did in the movies. With five bedrooms and 1.4 bathrooms, the owners have added in props and accessories that will allow fans to live out their true “Twilight” fantasies.

Staying in the Pacific Northwest, in second place in the study is the “10 Things I Hate About You” home, located in Tacoma, Washington. Rounding out the top three is the Goon Docks from the 1980’s classic adventure “The Goonies.” Most of the film was shot in Astoria, Oregon, which remained in line with the much-loved movie’s storyline.

In at fourth place is the home from the cult favorite, “Parasite”. Located in Seoul, South Korea, the house was built from scratch for the purpose of the film.

“I had to really meticulously design the house itself. It’s like its own universe inside this film,” director Bong Joon Ho said in an interview with IndieWire. “Each character and each team has spaces that they take over that they can infiltrate, and also secret spaces that they don’t know. So the dynamic between these three teams and the dynamic of space, they were very much intertwined and I think that combination really created an interesting element to this film.”

Finally, rounding out the top five is the charming home that Noah built for Allie in the 2004 tear-jerker, “The Notebook”. Located on Wadmalaw Island in South Carolina, the property has five bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and spans over 4,200 square feet.
