Possibly 30 years later and after a remodel? The floorplan doesn't seem to match the exterior.

I thought about that...but the things changed don't make sense. Like why was the 2nd story window removed (under the pointed roof)? Why were windows ADDED by the front door? Why was the chimney moved?

I can see the windows added, but not any of the other things. Especially the chimney. Just doesn't make sense.

The big stairway doesn't make sense in a split-level house.

Why not?

Rails need to be close enough to prevent children from falling.

technically i don't think according to the plans that its a split level. to coin a more current phrase, maybe 'modified two story'?

I read somewhere the floorplan was strictly a set...the real house didn't have the same layout....it was used for exteriors only.

I think those two photos are probably of the same house, 30+ years apart..isn't it in some LA suburb?

San Fernando Valley. The original house has that great circa late 60's look.

Actually railing spindles have to be close enough to prevent a child's head from fitting thru (whatever measurement that may be).

RE: Chimney - in first shot it's an elevated view. Chimney looks to be on the back half of the roof and it's merely not visible in the street-level angle of the newer shot.

Looks like the same house to me.

Clear spacing is not to exceed 4" - a 4" sphere cannot pass through two balusters.

By the way, what neighborhood is the Brady house in? I've often heard Chatsworth. I'd sure like to know.

RE: chimneys...naw, the one in the original house is high enough you'd see it...but in the original pic there clearly is no chimney where the one in the "today" pic is...and why would they get rid of a front-facing bedroom window?

I think it is a similar house, but not the same. A lot of late 60s/early 70s houses were cookie cutter...

OK in the links Bobo posted, it's clear the "white chimney" isn't a chimney, but a portion of a retaining wall...that said, the other chimney is clearly visible.

I still wanna know where the bedroom window went, though.

Looks like the same house.... look at the back ground and that hill. Other than looking at it from different angles, it's in the same location. Too much of a coincidence for it to be a different house. Even though the subtle differences are questionable, like Croc pointed out...
