Anyone who was a fan of Cory and Topanga and the gang from the popular 90s television series “Boy Meets World” starring Ben Savage can now call the home featured in the show their own if they’re willing to cough up the $1.595 million asking price.
Fans of the show will remember the house as the hub of plenty of valuable life lessons for the crew, not to mention a lot of laughs for seven amazing seasons. The home that housed the Matthews family is located in the Colfax Meadows neighborhood of Studio City, California, which is way on the other side of the country where the show was based on in Philadelphia. The home was used solely for exterior shots on the show.
The home is actually currently owned by veteran actor Joe Campanella who bought it back in April 2006 for $1.289 million.
The 2,500-square-foot abode was built in 1940 and is situated on a well-maintained 0.27-acre lot tucked behind private gates and surrounded by glorious mature trees and soaring hedges. It still holds a handful of decor touches from the 90s, including blue cabinet doors and floral wallpaper.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home features a bright sunroom that could be converted into a third bedroom. The en-suite master bedroom is a wonderful private sanctuary with a secluded sun deck, enclosed porch, and fireplace.
Every room in the home is spacious and filled with natural light. The eat-in kitchen opens out to a den, and the formal living and dining rooms offer plenty of space for lounging and entertaining. The living room features hardwood floors, a fireplace, built-in bookcases, and large shutter-covered floor-to-ceiling sash windows. The dining room also boasts hardwoods and smaller but equally stunning floor-to-ceiling sash windows. The large basement even boasts a wine cellar for those who covet their own collection of reds and whites.
The double detached garage features a two-bedroom guest unit above with a kitchenette for overnight guests, and the backyard features plenty of greenery, a shaded pergola, and outdoor dining areas.
Some spaces are certainly outdated, but they provide the perfect blank canvas upon which to renovate and add some modern personal touches.
Ben’s older brother, Fred Savage of another popular sitcom “The Wonder Years” just happens to live close by to Studio City in a home he purchased from American Pie star Jason Biggs.
Mr. Campanella may not be as popular these days compared to other household Hollywood names, but the 90-year-old actor has a long track record of impressive stints in Tinseltown, including his roles in the 1960s drama “The Doctors and the Nurses,” the early ‘70s crime-drama “Mannix,” the 1970s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” and the 1980s soap story “The Colbys.” More recently, he’s had roles in “The Practice” and the daytime soap opera “The Bold and the Beautiful”.
