The Simpsons Real-Life House
This $120,000 real life Simpsons home, the Springfield South Valley Ranch, was built in July 1997 for a promotional Fox gimmick. One lucky viewer would get the house which precisely mimicked the looks of the famous fictional residence inside and out in all its vibrancy. The winner, however, opted for the $75,000 cash prize instead (who wants to live in a cartoony residence anyway, right?). Since then the house has become a mere piece of commercial real estate and is referred to only as the South Valley Ranch.
