Just got a challenge to find the Charmed house – but that is an easy one! 🙂 The Charmed house is located on Carroll Avenue, a historic block of Victorian homes near Echo Park that is used constantly for filming. The Charmed house is the purple one located at 1329 Carroll Avenue – and the same home was also used in Sweet Dreams, Of Mice and Men, and Deuce Bigelow: Male Gigolo.
My favorite filming location on Carroll Avenue is located at 1345 – the haunted house from Thriller. It still looks as spooky and run down as it did back when MJ filmed there and is a great place to visit around Halloween. I always make it a part of my Haunted Hollywood tour in October. 🙂
It should look familiar from this angle. These locations were easy to find – they were identified in my favorite Hollywood tour book – Hollywood: The Movie Lover’s Guide by Richard Alleman. I highly recommend purchasing this book before doing any Hollywood touring.
I just can’t seem to resist doing the Thriller dance!
Until next time, Happy Stalking!
Stalk It:Carroll Avenue is located right off the 2 Freeway. Take the Glendale Blvd. exit and make a left on Bellevue Avenue. Finally make a left on East Edgeware Road which will lead you to Carroll. I would recommend parking your car and walking the length of the street. There are some amazing homes to look at – even if they aren’t all filming locations. Be sure to notice the old time street ties where people would tie up their horses back in the day.
