The house also comes with its original set of 1959 blueprints, said a spokesman for Ernie Carswell of Douglas Elliman, the listing agent.
HGTV won the home over more than a handful of other bidders, including former *NSYNC singer Lance Bass, who had offered just under $3 million.
David Zaslav, chief executive officer of HGTV’s parent company Discovery, announced its win during the company’s second-quarter earnings call Tuesday, Aug. 7.
“More detail to come over the next few months, but we’ll bring all the resources to bear to tell safe, fun stories with this beloved piece of American TV history,” he said.
Zaslav was not more specific about what type of show HGTV would put on, or if “Brady Bunch” actors might have any roles.
HGTV is already promoting the house on Facebook, teasing its “Big Project” on Tuesday morning.
“Guess who has a big project planned for this iconic ‘70s TV home? Watch for more clues, coming soon,” the network says in its post.
