The House Where Cory Lived

If you’ve ever dreamed of living in the house that Cory Matthews grew up in (or at least the house that provided the façade for the outdoor shots), then you are in luck, because it’s back on the market and it’s just dropped in price! If you have no idea who Cory Matthews is, then set your time machine for the 1990s and check in on ABC on any given Friday for the TGIF Lineup, complete with a little show called Boy Meets World.

Boy Meets World was a television sitcom that aired on Fridays from 1993 to 2000. It followed the lives, growing pains, and life lessons learned by one Cory Matthews and a group of his close friends from his days as a middle school kid, all the way through high school and into college and parenthood. The show featured actor Ben Savage as Cory and his neighbor and teacher Mr. Feeny as they clashed throughout the seven-year run.

The House Itself

The home in question is conveniently located in Studio City, not far from where the interior, school, and other scenes for the sitcom were shot. The property is part of the Colfax Meadows development, and features a2500 square foot two-story home on a 12,000 square foot lot, with an additional two-story guesthouse and garage on site.

It is move-in ready, as is, but would also make a phenomenal remodel project for anyone looking to bring back a bit of the charm of Studio City’s heyday.

The Grounds and Location

The home is located at the corner of Acama and Colfax Avenue. It is surrounded by mature shade trees, and tall hedges and iron fencing for privacy. The two story guesthouse is tucked behind the home’s detached garage and has its own private entrance, a full bath, a kitchenette, and a loft bedroom. There are many gardens and outdoor areas on the property with mature, lush plantings, as well.

The Interior of the Home

The main house on the property is a two-story East Coast Cape Cod style home built in the 1940s. The rooms throughout the home are over-sized, including both bedrooms and a massive, lattice-accented brick-floored sunroom that could easily be converted to serve as the home’s third bedroom, painting studio, or lounge area.

The home has hardwood floors, vintage floor coverings, and wallpaper throughout. The kitchen opens on one end into the formal dining room, and on the other into a den. The home also has two full bathrooms of its own.

What It Will Take to Get You a Place to Prepare to Meet the World?

The home was originally listed in November of 2016 for just under $1.6 million, but has dropped in price twice since then and is now listed at just under $1.3 million. This breaks down to $520 per square foot, with property taxes of just under $1,300.

Assuming that it will be purchased on a 30-year mortgage with competitive rates and a 20% down payment, prospective owners would be looking at a monthly payment of right around $6,700. Not too bad for a house with a famous front yard.
